Even though Christianity was officially criminalized in 2017* there are over a half a million Christians and people are hungry for the truth. This mountainous nation is known for its unique culture and the warm hospitality of the people.
God has given us a stronger connection there now that we have friends living in Kathmandu. We are working with new partners on this JOC, serving in poor communities within the Kathmandu valley and a few hours away.
Join us as we bring living hope to these desperate people through both supernatural and practical expressions of the Gospel of Jesus.
During the 2019 Journey of Compassion to Nepal, the closed nature of the country required our team to be extremely descret as they shared the good news. Open air prayer was dangerous and the locals were cautious to get involved.
As a result of these challenges, the team was forced to trust God's sovereignty as He worked behind the scenes to fulfill His purpose in calling them to Nepal. By the end of the Journey, God opened doors for fearless prayer and ministry. New partners have invited us to join them this year as they boldly continue to proclaim the Gospel to Nepal.
This year, Impact Nations has been invited to operate under the mantle of the Vineyard Church in Nepal. God has opened this door for us to speak light into the darkness without fear or constaraint.
Come join us for an historic adventure, as we proclaim and demonstrate the love and power of Jesus. For 12 days you will be on the front lines––healing the sick, leading many to Jesus, bringing tangible expressions of His love to the desperately poor, and watching as God uses you to bring about lasting transformation.
After a fairly early breakfast, we meet for about 45 minutes of worship, prayer and time in care groups. These groups of 6-7 people are a great way to be encouraged and strengthened throughout the Journey. Then we head out to that day’s community. For about six of the days we will conduct mobile medical clinics.* If you’re not a medical person––no worries, most of us aren’t either. But there are important roles for every member, whether praying for the hundreds of sick who will come, distributing anti-parasite medicine, weighing babies, being a runner or helping in the pharmacy. During the day, small groups go out into the community to pray for people on the streets, organize activities for children, and often just listen and love people. In the evening we go back to the community and hold a celebration where there are songs, testimonies, the Gospel is preached and the sick are healed. You are the one who leads people to Jesus and who prays for the sick. These outdoor gatherings always have a major impact on the community and often lead to new churches and ministries being established.
On days when we don’t conduct clinics, we engage in things like visiting an orphanage or school, preaching and baptizing in prisons, doing a feeding program for children, or simple practical projects. On Sundays, the team breaks into small groups and goes to a number of churches where we will preach, teach the congregation how to heal the sick, and give testimonies. This is always a very special day.
*Please note, not all Journeys include medical clinics. Those that do not will have a greater emphasis on projects and outreach.

The Journey Donation Target covers everything the team needs from the moment they arrive at the moment they depart as they serve and bless the people in the developing world we are committed to ministering to practically and supernaturally. This includes medical clinic expenses, water filters, food distribution and other tangible meetings of physical needs as determined by the journey location and the pressing needs presented. Also included in the donation are the team's needs while on the ground.
Since we come from different countries and backgrounds, and many of us have never met before, each Journey begins with an orientation and training time, usually for two days, where several things happen:
