†††I was a Hindu, a native of a small village in India. One day when washing clothes at the river, my wife found some tracts in some of the pants she was washing. I read them one by one and learned about Jesus and his teachings. Later I went to the nearby town and met the pastor. He taught me about the teachings and miracles of Jesus and the simple way of salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ by His grace.
After turning to Christ many people turned against me. My wife left me. Some of my customers stopped coming to my laundry service. I was forced to close my laundry service. My relatives decided to boycott me from our caste.But this only made me more firm and stubborn. My enthusiasm towards the Lord's service grew immensely in me. On account of Christ, I lost my wife, my profession, and my money. But because of Christ I got mental peace, tranquility and enlightenment. I was satisfied with the teachings of Jesus. After some months, my wife came to me with tears and joined me. We are now happy in the Lord.
Since that time I have started two churches and have trained three men for the minsitry. I have over one hundred twenty members in my church and they are faithful in thier attendance. Our church is made of sticks and mud walls. The floor is the dirt. My house is made of the same materials.
Of course our people are very poor and thier tithe is not enough to care for us but we serve the Lord and survivie from day to day. Your support will be a great belssing to our church and to my family.
Every 4 months sponsorship funds are sent to the preachers. With it goes a Missionary Report Form for each one to complete and return to our office. After compilation of statistics they are forwarded by mail or email to the sponsors. Below are past report forms from this preacher.

†††One Saturday I received Christ at 11 in the morning in the month of January, 1983. This same day I traveled to an Evangelical institute called Berea, located in Mount Carmelo, Huehuetenango. From that time I was saved through the grace of God. Also from that time I began to evangelize and teach in church.
