I was born in a Christian family. My father was converted from Hindu and my mother grew up in a Christian orphanage. As parents they did everything to raise me in a Christian manner. With their limited Biblical knowledge they were not able to establish a solid foundation. Although I stumbled in my youth, I could always feel the presence of God.

I felt God's calling at the age of 16 and left Nepal at the age of 17 to be a missionary in India. I served Him there for four years and returned to Nepal due to my father's passing.

God was able to use me in Nepal to reach and train young people until I heard the calling to go to the United States. My wife and I moved to the U.S. in 2004 and planted two churches.

We are thankful that God has opened the door for us to reach out to the Nepali speaking community in Elmhurst, New York. We are excited about our new journey and can't wait to see what God is going to do in Elmhurst, New York.
