February 5th 2016. The key Birgunj entry point along the Nepal-India border re-opened! The agitated United Democratic Madhesi Front took over the border for over 135 days in protest to their lack of representation under the new constitution. The blockade stopped fuel, vital medicines, cooking gas and other crucial everyday necessities from entering Nepal. On Friday evening February 5th,a small group of citizens over-took weary protestors and tore down their fortified bamboo barricades. Good news is that supplies are coming through for the people of Nepal though protests and demonstrations will likely continue.
Nepal embraced it’s long fought new constitution on September 20th, 2015. Celebrations erupted all over the country as millions of rejoicing people lit lamps and came out onto the streets! Nepal has operated without a formal constitution since 2006!
This country has been fighting for this day for almost 9 years since it first revolted against it’s single ruler king monarchy. On May 18, 2006 they took away the king’s power, Nepal became a secular country and would no longer be known as a Hindu kingdom, Even the past national anthem was scrapped until a new one would be arranged!

Welcome back! The team hikes in a remote mountain area of Sindhupalchok. Touch Nepal has been working in this area to bring earthquake relief and bring food and other necessities to the isolated villagers. September 25th marks five months since the first earthquake.Touch Nepal Earthquake Relief Fund is a success of generosity. $21,325.00 of earthquake relief landed directly in our pastor’s hands to provide aid to their neighbors and surrounding villages.
Touch Nepal is a non-profit organization that exists to fulfill Jesus’ commission to go into all the world. We partner with Nepali pastors and emerging leaders and their God-given vision to reach their own people with the good news of Jesus. Instead of imposing a western agenda, we come alongside indigenous pastors and leaders through financial support, education, prayer, relationships, and strategic planning. Touch Nepal wants to see more and more Nepali people have an opportunity to hear the message of Jesus and be reconciled with their Creator who loves them and live the full God-glorifying life they were created for.
