Pastor Thomas Testimony
Thomas was born into a family of 10 children. They were raised in Anglican faith. Thomas’ parents were very god-fearing and raised the children in a very religious way. The childhood of Thomas was very painful and problematic. He was sick always and was a problematic child. During his school days, he was attacked 4 times with different types of sickness. Every time he missed 6 months of classes. He could not even tell others what kind of pain he was going through. He always felt a burning sensation in heart, stomach and all over his body. At the same time, the second sister in the family also had a demonic attack. In the beginning they were unaware of this. But later they came to know that it was demon possession. One after another was attacked by the demonic spirit. Finally Thomas’s father’s brother and his wife who were Pentecostal believers came to know about the pathetic condition of this family and came to pray for them. Through them many other Pastors came and prayed for them. Day by day the condition of the sister and the family became worse and one of the children died. Though they were asked to follow Jesus, they were not willing to respond to the call of God. This went on for 3 years. Finally the Thomas family decided to follow Jesus and obey Him. This was a turning point in their lives. The day they committed their lives to Jesus, they were free from every demonic attacks. Everyone in the family got delivered and saved. Thomas became normal and healthy. Thomas committed his life for the ministry. From that day onwards Thomas has been working in different villages as pioneering evangelist. Today he is pastoring a church at Kanjar with 90 members.
Pastor Premanandan Testimony
My name is Premanandan. I was born and brought up in a Hindu family. It is my mom who came to the Lord first. This made me so mad and I used to oppose Christianity. But my mother prayed for me and that touched my heart to know more about the God of my mom. I never wanted to start a church nor wanted to become a Pastor. Soon after my encounter with Jesus I was born again. This happened on 13th July 1992.From the very day of my conversion experience, I had the desire to share this wonderful gospel with others and this desire increased day by day. I never wanted to be a Pastor, as my mom already dedicated my younger brother for the ministry of the Lord. Moreover being the eldest in the family the whole responsibility of running the family was upon me. So even with my family responsibility, I used to go out and share gospel with others. It is the burning desire in my heart that led me into preaching the gospel and church planting. Hospital visiting and praying for the sick was my initial ministry. Then I went to village after village with gospel films and pictures to share the gospel with the illiterates. When I saw the hunger of the people I started a Bible club for the children and Bible study for the older ones. I was a carpenter by trade. I was looking after my family and enjoying my spiritual activities. One day a Pastor came to our church and as he was ministering the Word, he came to me and prophesied over me. He said “God’s hand is upon me and has seen me for His ministry. Moreover the Lord is going to entrust people into my hands to feed them and take care of them”. These words really challenged me and touched my heart. This deepened the desire in my heart to preach the gospel. The next day I went to meet the Pastor in private. I wanted to confirm what he said. I tried to escape from the call of God and I said “it is my brother whom my mother had dedicated for God’s ministry and not me”. But the Lord did not leave me. Without much delay He confirmed my call and made me to obey His call. Meanwhile I got married and my responsibilities increased day by day. Soon the Lord started bringing people into our house. In 2004 we started a Bible study for the college students.13 students regularly attended this Bible study. They accepted the Lord as their saviour. We started meeting in our house regularly. And this turned into a house church. Today there are 80 people coming to worship the Lord with us. We are also reaching out the whole district with the gospel of Jesus.
