I studied to the 10th grade in a nearby town. My parents were idol worshipers and I used to offer burnt offerings to the village goddess. I hated Christianity and very often troubled the Christians trying to teach them that Christianity was a foreign religion.
One day my father was walking across the field and a poisonous snake bit hm. He received first aid in the village and was saved from danger. We offered animal sacrifice to our idol. The leg became black and unbearable pain started. We went to the city to a big hospital. They treated him ten days then confirmed the leg must be removed which would cost a great deal of money. My mother prayed to the goddess for help.
The village pastor came to know about my father's condition, visited him and prayed for healing. He prayed for 3 days and to the doctor's surprise the leg became white and swelling abated. They took
x-rays and confirmed the leg was normal. All my family was glad and the doctors were amazed at the miracle. As a result, all of my family members believed in Jesus and attended the local church. The pastor encouraged me to read the Bible. In this way I learned about Jesus and confessed my sins and accepted Jesus as my Savior. I now pastor among agricultural workers and fishermen in my village. We built a prayer shed and hold Sunday services in it.
I am giving my witness for Jesus in the village. Mainly I am striving to win perishing souls to Jesus. In the beginning I faced many troubles from pagan worshipers, but the Holy Spirit guarded me in all aspects. Now I am not a fish catcher but an ardent worker in His vineyard. Please pray for me.

Born into an idol worshiping family, we lived in a village where the people did not know the real God.I used to work as a private electrician.One day when I was working in a Christian house, a pastor came in and prayed for a sick boy there.I laughed at the mother for praying for her son's health instead of using medicines.But her strong witness for Jesus made me want to become a Christian and so I accepted Jesus.
