Chepang people transformed

Wherever the Gospel is preached around the world, there is fruitfulness. (Colossians 1:6) God’s word transforms people, their families, communities, economy, society, and nation.
Compelled by love
People live in various places, some in places considered remote. It could be deserts, wilderness, mountains, islands…etc. The love of the Lord Jesus Christ compels his disciples to take the gospel to remote areas of the world. (II Corinthians 5:14)
Chepang people in Nepal
It is a small country in the Himalayas, once declared a Hindu kingdom, and where Buddha, the founder of Buddhism was born. In remote Nepal, there lives a community called Chepang. They are neglected, and the progress and prosperity of other regions bypass them. Without much education, and economic deprivation they live in poverty.
No competition
Some missionaries walked into those regions preaching the gospel, taking food, clothes…etc. Serving such people has no competition. No one, including government officials, does not want to go to them. Called to serve, compelled by love, the missionaries went to do good.
An elderly Chepang man said: “before we became Christians our children used to start smoking at the age of seven and continued to smoke till they died. As soon as the harvest was over, we used to make rice beer and drank and finished the rice in three months and had to starve the rest of the year. Because of the drinking, there was a lot of fighting within the community and the police had to be called. They, in turn, would ask for bribes from both parties and this meant we had to sell our animals to pay off the police. Before we became Christians if someone fell sick, we would take our animals and sacrifice them under a tree beside the river. Now that we have become Christians, we have saved our money that would have been wasted on cigarettes, drinking, and fighting. We have rice to eat throughout the year. Our animals are our wealth, and our children can go to school.”
Have I shared the gospel and experienced such transformation?
