Mount Everest and trekking in the Himalayan mountains immediately spring to mind when you think of Nepal. But it is also ‘home’ for nearly 30 million people.

Most of the population (80%) are Hindu with less than 3% Christian. The Constitution of Nepal, adopted in 2015, established Nepal as a federal secular nation effectively opening the door for Christian ministries to openly operate. Even so, Nepal is listed at 32 in Open Doors ’The 50 most dangerous countries to follow Jesus’.

Our team call themselves Message of Hope and they have a weekly 25 minute slot on the following stations.

Afno fm 104.8 Dadedhura, Okhaldhunga and 90.4 Rukum

They’re based in Kathmandu and have built themselves some wonderful studio facilities.
