Church Planter - North India
After working for seven years to plant a church in Nepal, he returned to his native state to plant churches in a place of North India where there’s very little Gospel light. He is now working in five villages and has seen the Lord open many doors, and he has built many relationships as a result of his willingness to serve these people. Ranjit also occasionally teaches in a reformed seminary nearby.
Testimony of Conversion
I was born and brought up in a Hindu family. I heard the Gospel for the first time in 1991 from an O.M. team who were on an evangelistic tour in our region. A lady from our neighborhood bought a Gospel packet from them and brought that to me to read it for her. From that, I learned about Jesus’ life and His great love for sinners. The woman said this is a good story, but I got interested in the life of Jesus. So I got an address of a Christian Correspondence Center. I did Correspondence for about 7 months in order to learn more about God and his love for me.
While I was doing this course alone (none to guide or advise), in God’s providence a missionary came to our village. I was introduced to him by one of our neighbors during a Sunday worship service. The pastor shared the Gospel, stating Jesus’ love for sinners. I liked the love of God very much and wanted Jesus to forgive me of my sins. I wholeheartedly accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savoir. The Bible verse Acts 4:12 had a great impact on me. I thank God that Jesus came to give life to me.
Now praise God with me as my parents, sister, and a brother also believed in October 2006 and were baptized. After my conversion (1992), my Pastor took me to different places for tract distribution and Bible studies, and through these activities I got interested in the ministry. Then, I joined a reformed seminary (1993-1997) in India to learn more about God’s Word and mature in the faith. I was shaped in the seminary and my worldview changed.
