Ministry Description
Advocates International and its regional networks are guided in their mission by Christ's Good Samaritan parable. Working relationally, professionally, and spiritually, they seek to enable those committed to religious liberty, human rights, reconciliation, and professional ethics. These networks employ the "Samaritan Strategy" by identifying and connecting "innkeepers" carrying out these objectives. Jesus taught, "Do unto others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." This principle serves as the cornerstone for a network linking 30,000 law professionals in more than 100 nations.

The Nepali government decided this Spring to remove Christmas as a public holiday. Nepal provides public holidays to all the other religious communities. The legal team in Nepal plan to present at least five experts in international law who can testify about all of the international treaties and agreements to which Nepal is a party. Advocates International is looking for investors who would like to help us fight this legal challenge against the Nepali government’s decision to cancel Christmas.
