 The first record of Christian Missionaries reaching Nepal dates back to 1628. Lakshmi Narayan Singh received Portuguese Jesuit Father Juan Cabral with grace. The Mall Kings of Kathmandu valley allowed missionaries to spread their religion in valley. The first Curch in Nepal was built in Kathmandu in 1715.
 In 1703, six Capuchin Fathers from Rome travelled to Nepal. Only two could reach to Kathmandu and settled there. Mall Kings were favorable to Christian Missionaries.  
Father Michael Angelo treated bother of Prithvi Narayan when he was injured in war. Missionaries requested East India Company to attack on Prithvi Narayan Shah.
  After capturing Patan, Gorkha King Prithvi Narayan Shah expelled the Fathers and missionary supporters from Newar Region. Missonaries fathers and supporters went towards Betia on 1oth February 1769.
 Gorkha King Prithvi Narayan Shah also expelled those who helped East India Company as Kashmiris, Gusain and Many fakirs.
 It was not possible to win Prithvi Narayan Shah. Therefore, East India Company decided to have cordial relation with Prithvi Narayan Shah. East India Company sent its agent James Logan to Nepal for negotiation with Gorkha King. However, James was not successful to have treaty.
 Now, Prithvi Narayan Shah started capturing small countries one by one. Those Kingdoms asked help from East India Company but East India Company did not help any Nepali Kingdom against Prithvi Narayan Shah.
