Sudas Sharma –
“My Name is Sudas Sharma of Nepal. I am 45 years old. I have one wife (Leela) and 2 children (Priti and Samarpan). My daughter Priti finished senior high school in June 2012. My son Samarpan will be finishing senior high school in June this year. My wife is a house wife. I work in an inter-governmental organization as a knowledge management professional. I was born in a Hindu Brahmin family. My parents are still Hindu. My father is a Hindu priest.
I heard about Jesus for the first time at the age of 16 through a nursing student. She had come to our school to teach about health and hygiene as part of her field work. She secretly gave us small booklets to read. I read one of these booklets several times. The rest of my class mates threw them in the dustbin. I myself was a trainee Hindu priest, had studied Hindu theology, and was helping my father in his rituals and other Hindu practices. I found the content of the booklet interesting. It talked about another God that I had never heard of before. I was curious to know more about the God and Jesus mentioned in the booklet.
I decided to go to the place called ‘Church.’ I followed the address given in the booklet. Later, i was invited by one of my new friends to go to Christian Students camp where i learned more and understood the truth. I was introduced to the Way, the Truth and the Life. I sincerely prayed and asked myself, “is everything I am practicing as a Hindu priest meaningless?” I suddenly realized that all the idols that everyone in my house worshiped every morning and evening are worthless. They were nothing but stone, copper, and brass. I invited Jesus in my life as my personal Savior, and He came into my life in 1989.”
Sudas Sharma’s Vision
“My vision is to be an effective Soldier of Christ. I have never taken formal training related to His ministry. I want to be equipped with new knowledge and skills so that I can be an effective servant of Christ. My goal is to be able to lead the new generation to Christ. Leading the new generation to Christ is a big challenge in a materialistic world. I want to learn different skills to be able to teach better, evangelize better, and become an useful servant of Christ.
“Taking the course from Christian Leader Institute will help me to achieve my goal to become an equipped soldier of Christ. I will have opportunities to learn and grow in His words and teach others. I look forward to kind support, guidance, and prayers from you as I achieve my ministry goal.”
