Christianity is growing rapidly in Nepal, despite a ban on conversions. When Chuda Bastakoti became a Christian twelve years ago, the people in his remote village would taunt him, shouting “Christian” as an insult. “But that has changed now,Ì¢‰âÂå Bastakoti said. Ì¢‰âÒPeople do not look at me any longer with disdain when I go home.Ì¢‰âÂå Bastakoti works as a high school teacher in Katmandu. (Ecumenical News International)
