Shanti Shrestha

Shanti Shrestha


I became the first believer in my family 11 years ago. At that time, I was on a bus going to the hospital because I had been sick for a long time. On the bus, I heard a Christian woman talking to her friend about the healing power of Jesus. I had tried everything… medicine, witch doctors, and praying to all my gods, but nothing worked. That night I prayed to Jesus and He healed me. My whole family was Hindu and now many of them are believers.

My life was changed. I wanted to learn more about Jesus so I could share with others. A few years later, I joined a 2 year YWAM internship and then I did my Discipleship Training School. For the past five years, I have been leading treks to remote villages, sharing the gospel with the unreached, and training believers. I have just completed a Bible Training program to be better equipped for all that God has for me in the future.

My heart burns for all the people of Nepal to know Jesus. I often find myself on a bus somewhere telling the person next to me about how Jesus changed my life. Everywhere I go I want to share about Jesus. Many people in Nepal have never heard the Gospel, so someone needs to tell them. My life is for Jesus and His ministry.

I will continue to work with YWAM, leading teams in ministry and taking them trekking. I often go to a small fellowship in the slum to encourage and pray for the people there. Every weekend I travel 3 hours to go to my church in the village. A few years ago my pastor moved and there was no one to lead our church so I have been helping as there is no one to lead. Every week I visit members of my church and encourage and pray for them. I feel so blessed to be able to do ministry and help build God’s kingdom.

I will lay my life down to reach the Lost people of the Himalayas who have yet to hear the Gospel for the first time, but I can’t do it alone!

Would you join my support team to see Jesus receive His reward in the Himalayas?

Your involvement is not just a blessing to me but a blessing to the entire nation as we raise up lovers of Jesus who will spread his light and love.
