Krishna raj Bhatta


Born an orthodox Hindu in Dalendhura, Nepal, the son of a Brahmin and Hindu priest, from the upper caste I did not want to mix with lower caste or submit to a belief system I perceived as lower status. After my father passed away with no one to care for my family, our economic condition became very weak. I was sent to a children’s home run by a church in Kathmandu where I attended church services; came to know more about Jesus and salvation through Him. I accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord in 2003.

As I studied in the XIIth standard, God spoke to me about being committed for His ministry. I went to Bible College and the Lord gave a clear vision to share the Hope that lies within me (1 Peter 3:15) with many tribal people in Nepal.

I began sharing my faith right away and haven’t stopped – even when tribal people pointed bows and arrows at me saying, “We don’t want to hear about your God!” I spent many days without food and slept in the church hall during my early walk with God. I became involved in full-time ministry and currently serve with “Servant Heart Nepal” which exists to lead people into a loving, relationship with Jesus Christ that they may develop a servant’s heart and in turn become servant leaders.

We have been reaching people with the Gospel in rural villages of the remote Himalayas. Our vision is to equip nationals, plant churches, impact lives, transform communities and to see holistic development through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Presently there are 17 churches and 5 house churches he is overseeing.
