I was saved September 15, 1989 at a three-day crusade held by West Pekot Bible Baptist Church. I realized my lost condition and during the invitation accepted Christ as my Savior. Before that I trusted in baptismal regeneration. I became active in the youth group at the church and was strongly challenged by God’s Word and the Great Commission. The Lord laid a burden on my heart to win the lost at all costs. I went on visitation with the Pastor and my eyes were opened to the lost condition of men and women. I went to Bible college and prepared for the ministry in 1994, graduating in 1996.
My wife was saved October 5, 1990. She was active in her church. She took a ladies course along with a three-year Bible course. She was faithful and held strong convictions to live for the Lord. I was led by the Lord to Catherine and on November 12, 1999 we married. She is the kind of wife I had prayed for and is a great help to my ministry.
I am involved in church planting, film teams, tribal evangelism, discipleship, and child evangelism. I have started two new churches and I am training one man to be pastors. I have led over 600 people to the Lord, of which 265 have been baptized.
We live in a one-room, mud home made with a tin roof. Our favorite foods are ugali, chepati, rice, and potatoes. We cannot grow our food. We purchase it at the market.
Please pray for my ministry and my wife and I that we will remain faithful to the Lord and serve Him with all our hearts. Pray for a sponsor for us to help share our ministry.
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. They have been modified to protect the financial data of the sponsor.
We live in a small village named Tantikonda. There is a big Hindu temple. The total population is nearly 10,000. I used to run a barber shop. One day I went to a large city to attend a wedding and a barber shop function. While there I ate dinner with a relative who gave me a Christian tract. I was very impressed by it. Immediately I went to the address of Pastor Kumar. He explained the simple way to get salvation through the Lord Jesus Christ by His grace. Then I confessed my sins and accepted Jesus as my Savior. He presented me with a Bible and gave me some tracts for distribution among the villagers.
