My name is Jason T. I was born in a Hindu family. I was only six years old when my father believed in Jesus Christ and accepted Him as his personal saviour. Before that, my family’s condition was not good. Every day there was violence in my house. My dad used to smoke everyday and consume alcohol. But one day, my father came to know about Jesus Christ, and he started going to church.
Every Sunday, our pastor used to visit our house, and we had the church gathering at our house. I attended Sunday school and service and listened to the bible stories. During my early days, my life was not good. I used to get into fights with friends and I had many sins in my life. I witnessed violence at home, and because of it, I had to go away from my home and go be with my friends. But our God is awesome—He not only changed my parent’s life but also changed my life.
When I listened to the word of God in church, the Lord convinced my heart to respond to His word and the Holy Spirit convicted me of my sin. And I knew that I was a sinful person. I repented of all my sin and accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal Savior. I believe in Jesus Christ’s death, burial and his resurrection. Jesus has forgiven all my sin and cleansed me with His blood. When I accepted Jesus Christ in my life, I then was baptized on the 16th of Nov 2002, according to scripture where Jesus says in Matthew 28:19, “…baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” And the Holy Spirit has helped me in maintaining my walk with God.
I was involved in the church ministry especially in the youth meeting. I was some times given the opportunity to do exhortation, preach and participate in Bible study during the meetings. Thus, God has continued to use me during these years.
