Steve and Anju Kaptain came to YMI while serving as youth leaders in Nepal with Operation Mobilization. While serving as youth leaders in Nepal, Steve and Anju both graduated from YMI’s Masters degree program that was being taught a the Himalayan Graduate School of Theology in Kathmandu, Nepal. Convinced that YMI’s high-level training program was needed throughout Asia, the couple, along with their three children (Anjali, Alina, & Ethan), soon began serving as YMI’s Asia Ministry Directors.
While in this position, Steve has taught YMI’s youth courses in 5 major countries in Asia, the continent that is home to 50% of the world’s young people, the vast majority of which do not know Christ as their Lord and Savior. Great progress is being made throughout Asia as a whole, and we are excited about YMI’s future in the region.
We are very excited that Steve has begun directing a new initiative in Myanmar, where YMI is partnering with a leading evangelical seminary in Yangon, Myanmar (formerly Burma). Yangon is the previous home to the famous American missionary, Adoniram Judson.
