KATHMANDU, Nepal (BP) -- No one wanted to hear his words, Agni Amrit* says, hanging his head so low it almost rests on his checkered tie.

Amrit asked 10 people in Kathmandu, Nepal, if he could share a story about his God. Everyone he approached told him to scat. No one wanted to hear about another God -- they already have plenty in Hinduism.

Drew Neely*, an IMB representative and church planting trainer, repeats what Amrit has told him.

Amrit nods.

"I hope that gives you joy," Neely says, pausing for Amrit to meet his gaze.

"Brother, when those 10 people rejected you, you shared in the suffering of Christ and that should be cause for rejoicing." Read More
