Bhote in Nepal

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Summary
In general, Bhutias are those people who do not belong to any of the particular or distinct stocks of indigenous people of the Nepal Himalaya. They resemble Tibetans in most of their ways of living, and some have migrated from Tibet. The Bhote today have started to come into contact with the outside world following the development of tourism. The Buddhist religion is an integral social and cultural part of Bhote society. Making monasteries and lighting lamps uninterruptedly in monasteries; worshipping Guru Rinpoche Padma Sambhav, Shakyamuni, Gautam Buddha, as well as the Bodhisatva; believing in incarnate lamas; beautifying religious shrines with frescoes, statues, and prayer flags; making prayer wheels; playing musical instruments; and singing and dancing in festivals like Lhosar are the religious activities of Bhote.

Ministry Obstacles
The worldview of Buddhism is very different than that of the Bible. The Lord's Spirit must give understanding before a person can make such a radical change in worldview.

Outreach Ideas
Please pray some Nepali Christians will be led to take the good news of Jesus to the Bhote people. Pray they will prepare themselves well for this challenge.

Pray for the followers of Christ
A few Bhote individuals have reported themselves as Christians to the Nepal census. Please pray for these people, that they will become real disciples of Jesus Christ, holy in their conduct and zealous to know and serve him.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray for the Bhote people to increasingly become aware of their need for a Savior. They need to know of their need, then when they learn a Savior has been provided they will be interested.

Scripture Focus
"Blessed be the Lord God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders. And blessed be His glorious name forever; And may the whole earth be filled with His glory. Amen, and Amen." Psalm 72:18-19
