Ministry Obstacles
The Thakali tribes have a long history of commitment to Buddhism, with Hindu influence, as well. The worldview of Buddhism is quite different than that of Christianity.

Outreach Ideas
The body of Christ is growing in Nepal. Please pray that Nepali Christians will be made aware of the Marphali Thakali tribe and will take steps to carry the good news of Jesus to them.

Pray for the followers of Christ
It is unlikely there are any followers of Jesus today within this tribe. Pray those who someday will come to Christ will be able to fully make the needed shift in their thinking as to the nature of God, the creator God.

Pray for the entire people group
Please pray this Buddhist group will be set free from devotion to gods which bring death, not life, and will be given faith to believe in the One who does bring life, and life abundantly.
