Testimony of Conversion
I was born in a Hindu family and was living my life according to the Hindu religion. I worshiped all the gods and goddesses, but still my life was not peaceful and had no direction.
One day, I met a pastor who gave me a book. I started reading this book in the evening on my bed. It was about John 4:24. It said that God searches for those who worship Him in Spirit and in truth. This thing touched my heart and I liked it. The next day, I sat in the dark room where I use to keep all the idols and I decided to pray to Jesus. As soon as I said His Name, it seemed that the room lit up and there was a trembling in my body. This happened for three days. On the third day, I met the brother who gave me the booklet. When I told him what happen he became very happy and told me that it was the power of God. I became very eager to learn more about this God. From that moment, I began to learn from the Word of God. Three months later, I accepted Christ as my Savior according to Romans 10:9, “That if you confess with your mouth, Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the death, you will be saved.”
I was baptized on the 21st of February 1993. Then, I went for Bible training. After that, I served God in many places for thirteen years with Campus Crusade. Now I am preaching the Gospel in my church. Pray for me so that I can preach the Word of God with all my strength. Also, please pray that God will give me the wisdom to use the Word of God to strengthen believers and to bring more new believers to Him. My goal is to expand the kingdom of God by strengthening the church.
At first, I believed in Christ, but my wife did not. However, she never opposed my faith, and she would go with me to the prayer meetings. In the year of 1999, the Holy Spirit put it in her heart to know more about Jesus Christ. One day, when a visiting pastor preached in our place, she accepted Jesus as her Savior by the grace of God. She was then baptized and began to fellowship with other believers. God gifted her with the talent to sing for Him. I thank God for my wife and for saving her. Now she is serving Christ along with me. Please pray for God to heal her physical illness so that she can serve God in fullness.
