At one time Nepal was the world’s only official Hindu kingdom. Hinduism is so strong in Nepal that during their monarchy years the king of Nepal was worshipped as the incarnation of a Hindu God. Today, Nepal identifies itself as a secular nation. Although the politics have changed, the people of Nepal remain deeply religious, especially the 86% who are followers of Hinduism. Despite this, many people of Nepal are failing to find hope and fulfillment in life, and are spiritually hungry.
Since October, 2004, The Tide ministry has been producing and airing a weekly Christian radio program in the Nepali language. This program is called ‘Prasasta Jivan’ which means ‘Abundant Life’ in English. This program has the potential to reach over 19 million Nepali speaking people with the message that Jesus came to give them abundant life.
In 2013, we added programming in the Tharu language to help make disciples and plant churches among the Tharu people of Nepal. Most of this tribal people group practices an ethnic religion influenced by Hindusim, and less than 0.5% of Tharu people are Christian.
