Dzongkha

Background

Bhutan is a small, poor, mountainous region in the eastern Himalaya Mountains. It is one of the least evangelized nations in the world. There are only a handful of native believers here. Buddhism is the accepted state religion. The nation was closed to any form of Christian witness until 1965. The nation’s stance on Christianity has softened somewhat since then. Their new constitution now provides for some religious freedom; however, construction permits are not granted for non-Buddhist places of worship, so Christians can only meet in their own homes.
