What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
â€śMore temples than houses, more gods than people, more holy days than days in the year.â€ť Nepal is a country that is rugged and awe-inspiring. It is a society rapidly developing and changing, yet still remains rooted in ancient cultures and belief. Nearly everyone you meet is either Hindu or Buddhist, and are always open to a friendly conversation about culture, customs and life. The Christian church is exploding and serious persecution has followed, but hasnâ€™t managed to slow the spread of the Gospel.
Every day brings new and unexpected encounters, along with new friendships and unforgettable experiences. Ministry opportunities are never in short supply. Hiking through rice paddies in the foothills of the Himalayas to a rural village to pray over local believers, striking up a conversation with a fellow traveler at the corner coffee shop, venturing into the city slums to feed children before school, seeing what life is like for long term missionaries, spending time with lepers at the leprosy colony, dance parties at an orphanage, and gaining insider knowledge on the efforts to combat human trafficking are all normal experiences on this mission trip.
You can expect to see God use you to change peopleâ€™s lives, but know that Nepal is a place that changes you forever.
The Ministryâ€”Each day youâ€™ll travel to a new location, often a school, orphanage, village, or neighborhood, partnering with local NGOâ€™s, ministries, and churches to assist in local outreach. The goal is always the same: build relationships and share the Gospel. This can include:
Encourage and fellowship with local churches under heavy persecution.
Visit local schools to share and perform for the students.
Strike up a friendship with a local Nepali person in a nearby village, and enjoy some tea and conversation.
Visit an orphanage or two, serve a meal in the slums so the kids can go to school with a full stomach, spend time loving and caring for people in a leprosy colony, pray over people in rehab for substance abuse.
Put on a VBS type program for neighborhood kids.
Meet full time missionaries who are planting churches, combating human trafficking, running orphanages, and hear their stories of life and ministry in the field.
The Adventureâ€”Home to the Himalayan mountains, even the foothills are jaw dropping. Rushing rivers blast through the middle of the valleys, and the low lying jungle area has incredible wildlife. Adventure happens every day even if youâ€™re not looking for it. Yet weâ€™ll plan some hikes in the mountains, a jungle safari through the Chitwan National Park on elephant back, see some waterfalls and incredible sunsets over the mountains. Youâ€™ll experience local Nepali food, sometimes dishes that canâ€™t be reproduced anywhere else in the world. Witness ancient customs and practices, religious festivals, and the occasional wedding procession moving down the road. Dodge motorcycles and rickshaws on your way to drop off laundry and check your email. Souvenirs are everywhere, from replicas of ancient artifacts to knock off North Face clothes and mountaineering gear.
Experience Cultureâ€”Because Hinduism and Buddhism dominate the religious scene, youâ€™ll explore temples and monasteries dedicated to various gods, gurus, and buddhas in an effort to better understand the people youâ€™ve come to serve. Nepal is a place where religious practice and ancient customs clash with Western influence and the result is a wild and exotic display of sights and sounds. Walk down the street and hear the chaotic bustle of buses, tuk tuks, motorcycles, and rickshaws whizzing by you. Pass by the â€śholy cowsâ€ť wandering on the sidewalk, and take in the smells of incense, burning trash, diesel, and sizzling samosas being cooked on a street cart. See the impact of long held beliefs like karma and the caste system on the daily lives of the Nepali people. Savor the taste of some Nepali milk tea with a new friend as they share with you the struggles of daily life in Nepal. Nepal is a place that is lively and complex. Much of what you see and experience you wonâ€™t entirely understand, but is no less fascinating.
