Bhutan is said to be the happiest country in Asia, yet with a population of more than 700,000, Bhutan remains one of the nations least touched by the message of Christ's love.
For a span of 25 years, Bhutan experienced some religious freedom, but since 1990, Christians have seen increased limitations and harsher treatment. The loss of citizenship, free education, healthcare and employment can all be expected once a person decides to follow Christ. Even access to electricity and clean water is often denied. A ban against building places of worship other than Buddhist temples also prevents believers from constructing churches.
But God is at work in this nation and continues to draw people to Himself.
