The Luke Society teamed up with Dr. Kapil Mishra to found ministry in Damak, Nepal, in 2007. The ministry includes medical care and church planting, and the PMT status is currently open.
Dr. Kapil Mishra was born in Bhutan, a small, mountainous country east of Nepal. His family was Hindu, despite Buddhism being the official religion of Bhutan, and they belonged to a native Nepalese tribe. As a child, his familyТs Hindu beliefs did not provide satisfaction to the questions he had about life. "I asked so many questions that I would get into trouble at school," he says. At age sixteen, he met a Christian doctor from India who finally answered his questions. "For every question I asked, he was able to give a good answer directly from Scripture."
