Summary: Rajesh is the Country Coordinator of Bhutan. He recently started with One Way Ministries International in 2020. His country has been in lockdown most of the time due to COVID-19. However, he has been doing a great job planting churches and providing leadership to the house church planters working with him.
Bhutan is a mainly Bhudist country, with about .0.3% Christian. The population is 774,000 and acording to the Jopshua Project they only have about 3000 Christians in the whole country. There are a few hundred more with the team that is working there, but it is definitely a pioneer country for the gospel.
It is a very mountainous region, so everyone is spread out. This makes it harder to preach the gospel. The also have strict ant-evangelism laws. If you are caught evangelizing in public they can put you in jail or kic you out of the country.
Please pray for Bhutan and all the Christian workers there.
We have another option of supporting the movement, by donating goats. Goat farming can be a fairly profitable business for missionaries.
This goat ministry starts as a family business. Someone donates two female goats and one male goat. After a while each female gives birth to 1 to 3 kids. Once they have enough goats to sustain themselves, they give three goats to another family so they can start a goat business. This process keeps repeating and can provide support for many families.

Support a Missionary
Each of these leaders are considered missionaries. They are out working everyday in their villages or nearby villages. They train and appoint pastors to lead each house church or cell group that they plant. They continue to train, monitor, and oversee the pastors, and church members.
The money they use will go towards fuel and expense from traveling to and from their cell groups, pastors houses, and other ministry activities. It will also go towards feeding their family and other basic needs like housing, clothes, medicine, etc. Both giving options are invaluable (goat ministry or monthly giving). The work they do will keep producing fruit exponentially and will keep going long after you and I pass away.
