Online Christian College Education
My name is Rajesh Khadka and I am receiving online Christian college education for free at Christian Leaders Institute. I am from the mountainous country of Nepal situated in South Asia between India and China. I am 24 years old. I completed my MBA recently from one of the colleges in Kathmandu. I am currently working in United Mission To Nepal for the earthquake victims with multiple integrated project components. I am designated as Finance Assistant. I was baptized in the year 2007 by my Pastor. Currently, I am a member of Asim Church which is a part of Asim Ministry. I am also serving as Youth Leader and worship leader. I am also the coordinator of Asim Ministry.
To recall my childhood, I grew up in a slum area of Kathmandu with not much money or possessions. My family had to struggle a lot financially. It was a difficult time for my family. Through God’s grace, I had some good people around me who were willing to sponsor my education. With their help, I was able to enroll in a good school and this made me prosper in the knowledge of God. I was slowly going through my grades.
Then the greatest tragedy happened when my father passed away when I was 12. This made me broken from within and the whole family was torn apart. Six months after the death of my father, my mom left me. Then, God sent my sister as my guardian and she raised me after those years. I stayed with her until my high school. She helped me a lot to make me the person that I am today.
My church pastors and leaders were also helping me through my tough times. I graduated from my high school with good marks and then got admitted to a university for my bachelor’s degree. During this time, I was working as Admin & Finance Officer in Space Overseas Pvt Ltd. I was also focusing on God’s Kingdom during this time. I was working with youth and Sunday School teaching. I sometimes led the worship at the Saturday service in my church.
Asim ministry consists of 12 different churches. One of the churches is in Bhaktapur district and the rest of the churches are in Dolakha district. Dolakha district is a mountainous district and consists of the rural areas. The ministry works through these churches and helps these churches to spread the Gospel of God to these places. The people are deeply rooted in their customs, traditional norms, and values. Most of the people follow Hinduism as their religion and are heavily influenced by their religion. The Christians are having a difficult time in preaching the Gospel of God in these places. Recently, seven Christians were arrested for preaching the Gospel of God. They were put in jail for more than a week and later released. Such are the conditions where my ministry reaches.
Despite all the difficulties, we are happy to reach out to the people with the message of God and give them the gifts of God with Bibles, templates, and other various materials. Being a coordinator of the ministry, I am responsible for getting together different events and setting out various strategies for reaching out to more people. I try to make several contacts within or outside of the organization for the betterment of the people and the ministry.
The recent earthquake in Nepal severely damaged the churches in the ministry. Eleven out of the 12 churches were completely collapsed and the believers had to attend fellowship under a tarp. This caused the ministry financial difficulty. The ministry had to go through a restoration process of these churches and this was possible through several helping hands and prayer. The restoration process is not still completed, but I am very sure that God has a plan for the restoration of these churches. I am optimistic about the direction where this ministry is heading.
My main aim in life is to serve the Kingdom of God. I want to reach the maximum number of people with the message of God. I want to tell them that there is hope even during the darkest of days and that the only hope in life is Jesus Christ. Through Christian Leaders Institute, I want to develop the insight and knowledge of biblical perspectives for reaching out to the people. I want to learn how to be an effective leader and how to be an example as I lead my youth, the church, and the ministry. I want to understand the will of God in my life through the study of the courses at CLI in this online Christian college education.
Thank you all for having such a wonderful concept of providing online Christian college education and required certificates. This will provide a wonderful opportunity for people like me who cannot afford the fees to attend a college. I am able to acquire God’s knowledge and wisdom from the place where I am now through CLI.
