Sherpa of United States

Ministry Obstacles
Sherpas are Buddhists who think of the spirit world as something to be used in order to gain what they need. There is no concept of a loving, fatherly God to guide them through life's difficulties. Instead of embracing some form of Christianity like many other Buddhist peoples, Sherpas in the US have remained Buddhist.

Outreach Ideas
Marriages between Buddhist Sherpa men and secular or New Age-oriented American women are sometimes rocky. Counselors who believe that Christ has the answers can help Sherpas and their spouses to see that Jesus offers them the guidance they need.

Pray for the followers of Christ
There are no Sherpa followers of Christ in the US as of 2015. However, there are Nepalis in the US who have embraced the Savior. Pray that Nepalis believers will reach out to them.

Pray for the entire people group
* Pray for the Buddhist Sherpas to have a hunger and thirst for spirituality that will lead them to the loving, living Heavenly Father.
* Pray for a people movement to Christ among Sherpas and Nepalis in the US that will spread to the Sherpa community in other parts of the world.
