My parents were Hindu. I was born in a remote village of Nepal. Later we migrated to Terai. My mother passed away due to Demonic attack. Then I was put in an orphanage for my education, that orphanage was run by a Christian.
One day I was invited to attend Sunday school and I was asked to memorize John 3:16. This verse touched my heart and I accepted the Lord as My personal savior. Then I began to grow in the Lord. When I finished my school I came to Kathmandu for further study.
I attended bible training in 1994 and started getting involved in ministry as God called me too. I was pastor there for 3 years and I moved to another place and started new church in 1997. Now, I am the founding pastor of this church and I am also involved in an orphanage and leadership training. God gave me an opportunity to complete Bachelor of Theology, M. Div from India, B.A./M.A. from Nepal and a Doctor of Divinity Degree from India and many other leadership trainings from different countries.
I am thankful to God who called me to serve Him and His people in Nepal and beyond. I am happy to serve the kingdom of God with family.

Nepal is a small Himalayan Kingdom in South Asia and Kathmandu is the capital city. The highest peak of the world, Mount Everest, lies here. The country is landlocked with India to the east, west and south, and the Tibetan Region of People’s Republic of China in the north.
The total area of the country is 147,181 sq. Km., with 885 Km across the country (east to west) and 193 Km. from north to south. The country is situated between 80° 04′ and 88° 12′ east, and 26° 22′ and 30° 27′ north, along with the southern slopes of the Himalayas.
The climate varies sharply with altitude, from arctic to humid sub-tropic. With such a wide range of climates allows for a wide variety of agricultural crops to be grown.
According to the 2017 census, the population of Nepal is 29.3 million. The christian population in Nepal is only 1.4%, we are still considered minority group. It shows there is still great need to work for the Gospel throughout Nepal.
