About My Family

I am blessed to have been married to Vikali since 2003. We have three children. Kupunoli Faith and Liviani Joy are 11 and 10-year-old girls, and Kimiyenoti Joshua is our 2-year-old boy. 

We are from Nagaland in northeast India and feel blessed to be here in the U.S., working among university students. We were in Singapore with Youth with a Mission (YWAM, 2004–2005) and then in 2005–2010 in Chiangmai, Thailand, as missionaries among the students at Chiangmai University, the largest university in northern Thailand. In India we were actively involved in church planting at the Delhi University campus.

About My Ministry

God has led us to university campuses in India, Thailand and now the Unites States. We came to Evanston Baptist Church for my internship, and right away God opened our eyes to see the overwhelming need in the community the church serves, particularly university students. Over the course of a few months, we experienced moments of true clarity when God seemed to open His map to us and let us know that this is exactly where He wants us to be at this time in our life.

This is a faith journey for us, and we ask you to partner and pray with us that God would meet our needs and bless this ministry. The opportunity for world missions is at our door. Please let us join hands and do this together. "Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity" (1 Timothy 4:12).
