What Is The Need in Nepal?
With 50% of the population living below the poverty line, Nepal is one of the poorest countries in the world. In Nepal, most people live on about $3 a day. Making it to be one of least developed countries in the world.
In addition to these startlingly statistics, every year tens of thousands are trafficked through sex slavery. Global Expeditions wants your help! In a community suppressed by poverty and slavery, you will have the opportunity to take a two day trek up a mountain and minister to a people group who are, literally, an unreached tribe! Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime! In Nepal, you will spend one month ministering in one of the most “unreached” countries, in the world today.
You will receive the opportunity to go to a rehabilitation center and share the unending and unreserved love of Christ with those who feel that their worth has been stripped from them.
How Will We Spread The Gospel?
There are approximately 29 million people living in Nepal. 86.2% of the population practice Hinduism, 7.8% Buddhism, and about 2% are Christians.
In a nation of 23 million people divided into hundreds of ethnicities its not surprising that many still haven’t heard the Gospel.
The Himalaya Mountains provide a rugged backdrop to the spiritual challenges facing the people of this land. Trails and roadways, littered with spinning and flowing prayer symbols sent to the wind, appear futile and empty to Western eyes. Hinduism has become a way of life, overtaking the former religion – a mixture of magic, divination, demon worship and sacrifices.
In Nepal, we have the chance to show them the tangible love of God by climbing to unreachable, and sharing our faith while we do it.
What We Do For Fun?
During our mission to Nepal one day will be set-aside for us to enjoy the beautiful and exotic country that we have traveled to. On this day you will get to experience the country in a fun way that you will leave you with stories you will never forget. Spend some time sightseeing and shopping around and pick up souvenirs to bring home to family and remember your adventure forever! Also, experience an incredible 1 Night/2 Days at Chitwan National Park, where the wildlife is said to compare to that in Africa -as it is home to several endangered species. Everyone will also have a chance to go on a Tharu village cultural tour that includes an elephant safari and jungle drive! There are also many historical monuments and the ministry partners will provide you with a lot of options to experience Nepal!

These Project Directors attend an intensive time of training on safety, effective national ministry and ministry with teens in mind. We also have additional leaders with each group (Team Leaders), these leaders have attended and been selected by our staff at one of our TrueNorth seminars.

We then have leaders over small groups (Mission Advisers, age 18+) these adults are over a group of 3-5 same gender missionaries and help see to their safety and well being.
