We had the rare opportunity of going into two prisons in Nepal, welcomed by the Chief District Officer, to meet with listeners.  In the Women’s Prison there were 19 regular listeners, two of whom lead a prayer group and Bible study based on the broadcasts.  The Men’s Prison was much larger and we were unable to find out how many regularly listen.

656We were able to present a water filtration system as well as portable radios to each of the prisons and each person there received a Bible, a program guide and a booklet.  Sadly, we couldn’t sit and talk with the inmates, which was distressing as many of the women were anxious to talk with us. I so badly wanted to hear their life stories and to be able to offer them some hope.
