Mission Trip (Nepal)
This PYFA mission trip will take place in Nepal; in villages where team members will be ministering in local church services and homes. There is a great need for people to teach basic hygiene, disciple through Bible teaching, minister to women, and reach out to the children.
Time & Location
Nov 05, 7:50 PM – Nov 16, 10:00 PM
Draped along the greatest heights of the Himalayas, Nepal is where the ice cold of the mountains meets the unrelenting heat of the Indian plains. It’s a land of yetis and yaks, Sherpas and stupas and probably the best trekking on earth. Nepal is also the world’s only Hindu Kingdom – it is recognized as the national religion. When less than 2% of the population consider themselves Christian, Nepal is a harvest field just waiting for laborers.
The majority of this PYFA mission trip will take place in villages where team members will be ministering in local church services and homes. With 80% of Nepal’s population dependent on agriculture, many people live in underdeveloped areas—there is a great need for people to teach basic hygiene, disciple through Bible teaching, minister to women, and reach out to the children.
A Visa is also required to enter Nepal; however, this will be obtained at the airport upon arrival.
A recent tetanus and Hepatitis A and B are recommended. If you have any questions or concerns about your immunizations, please contact your family physician before they are administered.
The weather in Nepal in November is cool and dry with many sunny days. The average rainfall is 8mm and the average low and high temperature are between 7-23℃(44.6-73.4℉). In the early November, the climate is warm and great, suitable for all kinds of outdoor activities and cultural sightseeing. With the days progress, it becomes colder. November is the peak season to travel to Nepal.
We are looking to create a 20 person team at most for this mission trip.
