I was born in and raised in a Non-Christian family in India, despite following my family’s traditional religious activities and beliefs I found no peace and felt lonely and empty inside my heart. My family went through a time of economic struggle, which added to my stress causing me to search further for the true meaning of life.
When I was a young boy a Christian family moved to my town and began a private Christian School. My parents sent me to the school because they taught English and held a high standard of learning, during my studies at the Christian School and through the teachers that I heard about Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. I learned that He had died for my sins and rose again from the dead. Finally, I came to a knowledge that I was a sinner and that I needed to confess my sins to Jesus. He forgave me of my sins and given me my assurance of Salvation, which I had never before experienced.
Life in Christ has given me great joy and peace that I had never before experienced. As I began to attend Church Services many people shared their personal testimonies. Many of their testimonies touched me and gave me the desire to come to know my Savior in a more personal way. As I studied the Bible and learned of the signs and wonders of the Lord I began to better understand Jesus as my Savior and deepened my faith in Him.
Salvation in Christ was so exciting to me that I felt the need to share it with everyone around me. I often suffered persecution from others because I would hand out tracts and offer the truth of Christ as my Savior to those around me. Several people in my community began to search for me in order to teach me to keep quiet. I had to leave my family and community for a period of time until it was once again safe for me to return home.
I also began praying for God to miraculously changed my family's economic situation. He not only brought my family out of financial ruin but through time He has also brought several of my family members into a personal relationship with Him. This has been a big testimony to me of Gods faithfulness and love and encouraged me to serve Him in missions.
Throughout every aspect of my life, since that time, Jesus' love and grace has comforted and sustained me. Jesus is the most important person in my life and always will be. I love the Lord Jesus Christ; He is my best Friend, Savior and Lord.
The Lord has given me a burden, to reach the most unreached people groups in India through effictive evangelism.
