Bijay stands in the region where his family was persecuted—and where he now works to bring clean and living water to the unreached.
“My parents were raised in a small Buddhist village. Road construction was what they worked in, making them very poor. They had my older sister, but when she was just two she became very ill. They believed an evil spirit had overtaken her body, so they sought help from the local spirit doctors. Nothing helped. Until one day a pastor came to their village and he shared the love of Jesus. They prayed over my sister and she was healed.

The funds raised by that missions team enabled us to start our organization and serve people through WASH for three years.
I love to go to the field and be with the people in the village. There’s an immediate bond between us because I shared the same struggles growing up in the very same region of Nepal. At every project, there is a local pastor which enables a local believer to start a relationship with those served. We see their lives transform, both physically and spiritually.
