Introduction / History

The Dakpakha people of Bhutan live in the Himalaya Mountains in the North Tashigang District. They are virtually all Buddist. To our knowledge there are no followers of Christ among them. We do not know of any missionaries or Christians working among them. Fortunately, their country is open to the gospel although officials may not always be too helpful. Pray for workers that can put the Lord's Truth in a form that can be easily understood and will penetrate their hearts.
