Sudip Khadka is the founder and president of Compassion for Asia.
He was born and brought up in an Orthodox Hindu family in Nepal. He came from the Chhetri caste system, and his family, especially his Dad, was involved in politics and also was a witch doctor. His Dad had significant influence over him. He was the first male child after six female children in the home. His Dad wanted a male child because, in the Hindu religion, it is vital to criminate a dead body by a male child of his parents so that they may go to heaven and be also successors in his Dad’s political carrier.
His birth in the family was full of hope and had so much expectation from his family. When he lost one of the loved sisters in the family, then he didn’t have peace with the Hindu gods and goddesses. God had a divine plan for him, and in 1986, while he was studying, the man who was running that school shared the Gospel with him, and he received Christ. The man who brought him to the Lord was the first Christian in the country.
As he was growing in the Lord, because of the persecution, his spiritual father had to be in prison. Sudip himself had to go through the rejection of the family. He faced a lot of challenging situations inside the country from family, friends, and relatives. Christianity was illegal in Nepal. Then Sudip got the privileged of leading and giving leadership in the church not long after his conversion. He started leading a church when he was 15 years old.
In 1989 he dedicated his life for the full-time service for the Lord and begun to work in apostolic anointing and calling. Since then, he has been continually working in Nepal. Sudip is actively involved in church planting, teaching, preaching, and sharing the redeeming power of the Lord in Nepal and its neighboring countries. Sudip moved to the capital of Nepal, Kathmandu, where he obtained a Master’s degree in politics from Tribhuvan University. He also holds a Master of Divinity from the theological institution and has graduated from Brownsville Revival School of Ministry (BRSM) with a missions degree.
In Kathmandu, Sudip worked to establish different ministries, but he felt that his walk with the Lord, and his ministry was missing something. So, in 2001, he traveled to Pensacola, Florida, to attended Brownsville Revival School of Ministry (BRSM). The school transformed his life. After completing his degree in missions, he returned to Nepal to continue to work.
In 2005, Sudip was married to Anne Lise from Norway. He met her in Pensacola, FL, during his visit. She also graduated from BRSM. Presently they have three children. Sudip and Anne Lise have ordained ministers through liberty Networks.
They both represent a ministry called compassion for Asia. (CFA). Their work involves planting churches and providing oversight and leadership to several churches in Nepal and the neighbor countries. They lead 60+churches. They hold evangelism crusades and leadership seminars. They are raising, equipping, and training indigenous people and are sending them as missionaries to their people through Compassion for Asia Bible College. Anne Lise and Sudip also support native evangelists and pastors and help them to be self-supporting. They are running orphanages. They also run an NGO (Non-Government Organization) called Reach the unreached-Nepal and work in different social and education projects to the people of Nepal.
