The Sherpa are a warm and friendly people, ingrained with kindness and generosity. They are an ethnic group from the most mountainous region of Nepal, high in the Himalayas, and are highly regarded as elite mountaineers and experts in their local terrain. Many Sherpa are literate in Tibetan, Nepali, and occasionally, Hindi and English. The Sherpa generally follow the Tibetan form of Buddhism combined with animism.
The Sherpa may have little sense of the reality of sin, and the need for forgiveness. Pray for conviction of sin.
Christian workers should not neglect the physical needs of the Sherpa, assisting them with improved living conditions, as this is possible.
Pray for the followers of Christ among the Sherpa, that they will fully trust the finished work of Christ on the cross, and also trust his Spirit to give them abundant life.
Pray the Sherpa peoples will increasingly desire to know the Son of the creator God. Pray also for their physical and material welfare.
"You purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation." Revelation 5:9
