Tantric Buddhism permeates all areas of life

Tibet remains an exceedingly difficult region for the Gospel. Among the Kahm people there are very few believers, indeed it is possible that there are no Christians at all among the Northern Kahm group.

WHAT YOU CAN DO

Tibet remains an exceedingly difficult region for the Gospel. Among the Kahm people there are very few believers, indeed it is possible that there are no Christians at all among the Northern Kahm group. Regular radio broadcast in the Kahm languages are a significant ministry where both the geography of the country and the distinctive Tibetan Buddhism have proven obstacles to the spread of the Good News.

Cost: £20 provides a significant pack of outreach and training materials for Tibet. £50 helps run a marriage guidance course. £70 is the cost of one day of Christian broadcasting in the Kahm language. Give to Tibet ministries here.

PRAY FOR

While there is a seven hundred year history of missions in Tibet and still only a handful of believers, the harvest is ripe. The Tibetan church is growing and so is the missions force to reach them. Pray for the workers who face some of the harshest living conditions on the planet. Pray that the Lord would place a hedge around them. Pray the 'Light of the nations' would shine into the spiritual darkness of Tibetan Buddhism.

Bible verse

you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation - Revelation 5:9

Missions Quote

"Be much alone with God, and take time to get thoroughly acquainted. Converse over everything with Him. Unburden yourself wholly -every thought, feeling, wish, plan, doubt- to Him...He wants not merely to be on good terms with you, but to be intimate." - Horatius Bonar
