From Darkness to Light (my personal testemony)
I was born in an orthodox Hindu Family. I was brought up in an atmosphere of much piety. As a result I took pains to learn a good number of the Hindu Ethics. I was growing up in the fear of Hindu Gods. My sins also abounded in proportion to my piety. Sin prevailed upon me. In this way I completed my seventeenth year. If anybody chose to argue with me about Christ I gave them strong answers and dismiss them quite easily by hushing them into silence. One day a close friend of mine began to talk to me about the love of God. But I argued with him and boldly refused his claim that Jesus Christ alone is the real living God. I gave my assent to the fact that there is only one God but gave emphatic "No" to his claim about Jesus Christ. In this way, I whield away a few more months. The Lord began to speak to me in manyways. I was indifferent to it. He spoke to me through proverbs 28:13. But I turned a deaf ear to the divine talk too and was continuing to waste my life. Many time the Lord made this gracious intervention in my life. Finally the Lord unmistakably spoke to me by getting me involved a dreadful bus accident. At this stage I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Saviour. I commited my whole life into His blessed hands of protection and confessed all my sins sincerely. The Lord pardoned all my sins, and I was quite convinced to His matchless Grace. From that day, He has enabled me toenjoy heavenly joy and peace of mind which the world can never give me nor can take away. He also gave me triumph over sin. He delivered me from all the sins to whichI have been miserrably subjected till then. Then the Lord spoke to me through Acts.22:16 and in obedience to His voice, I took water Baptism on 30th August 1970, afterwards, I encounted much oppositions in my own Home. The whole of my house, my own kith and kin began totear and set fire to my Bible. They put me to countless sufferinggs and hardships and did their best to win me back to my former Hindu faith. But the Lord Jesus confirmed His word in accordance with Isa 54:17. In this way the gracious Lord is keeping me in His precious way be actually bearing me up against innumerable difficulties. The burden of taking this precious Salvation is still in my heart and I am praying that God would strengthen me physically as well as spiritually to carry His word to the hundreds and --thousands of young souls like me who perish in darkness not seeing the precious light of Salvation. At present we are having more than 50 Churches in Tamil Nadu and in Kerala State. We have sent more than 700 Orphan children trained in our Children's home. We minister to the poor and needy by means of the Gospel and Social Services. At present we have 50 churches all over the State of Tamilnadu.

Beside this, we also run two children's home for destitute children, we are free boarding the housing for 100 children. We also run three English schools for the public for a moderatefee. Through these schools, we introduce the Living Christ to the children. We are also engaged in a literature ministry, so far, we have published more than 25 books such as an exposition for Psalms, Joshua and Ruth and five volumes of sermon outlines for Pastors, stories for children, etc., in our regional languaes.

Recently, we have started a free lending library, with more than 2000 books and audio and video tapes for the benefit of chrisitian Believers - irrespective of denominations. India ua a ripened harvest field. The last few years, the spiritual climate has changed dramatically. People are open to the Gospel as never before. The hour of God's visitation land. India is searching for a Guiding star, looking for a sure foundation, crying out for a Saviour - it is time to take action.
Therefore, Please take time to consider it and put it before The Lord. "THIS IS A CITY THAT NEEDS JESUS."
As I close may Jesus keep you and guide you in whatever way for you to become a part of OPEN DOOR MINISTRIES.
With love and prayers.
