Two Nepali Christians, together with an Indian and US citizen were arrested and charged under the new anti-conversion laws. They were involved in training local pastors at a local church and had brought Bibles for the pastors. At the time of arrest, the police also confiscated a box of Bibles, a laptop, a USB stick and some cash. They were accused of trying to “lure conversions” to Christianity. Praise God that after a day long trial, the judge released all four.

Pray that Christians in this nation will not be bound by fear to these new laws, but have wisdom to boldly witness their faith (The Bible, Proverbs 2:11).
