I have worked as Imam a few months in Malhar Deen al Islam arabic college+ Mosque, in Manjeswar, Karargode district, South Kerala.
I had a special ministry also while I was in the certain Mosque i.e to work among Christians and teach them Islam to convert them into it. That’s the reason I began to read the entire bible and also started reading Islam and Christianity comparative studies books. Latter I have found the truth that Jesus has been crusified and died and rose from the grave on the third day. I have met a person called Rev KK Alavi, from Northern Kerala whom is a former Muslim and now a born again Christian.
I met him in the month October of 2010, my intention to meet him to force him for revert into Islam, the knowledge which I have got from him really encouraged me to know Christ more.
I have found the truth and accepted Christ as my personal savior and Lord and I have got saved on 10th January 2011.and I went SIBBC bible college for biblical studies, I was there in SIBBC only till an year.
I have been baptized through Rev Cheriyan at SIBBC, Coimbatore on August 19th of 2011 in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit before a number of born again believers. in June 2012 I have joined in MA program at SAIACS bible college, Kothanure, Bangalore. I could not complete my studies at SAIACS fot I did not has any sponsors to support me financially. I have started full time ministry since March 2013 in various states of India and other few countries.
Jesus has paid the penalty of my sin and set a place for me in heaven. I thank and praise Jesus for He has brought me out of darkness to the Eternal light. I am seated in the Heavenly realms with the Lord Jesus Christ Ephesians 2:6. I praise God for He is using me for His Glory…!. Now I’m not with my own family instead our Awesome God has blessed me by gifting me many families in Christ. I’m enjoying my life with the LORD always.I could brought many souls to the right path through my testimony. Christian faith is a lovely and amazing, it is an intimate relationship with Lovely God, we cannot compare Christianity with any other religions of the earth Christian faith is pure.
We praise God for his new found life and we endure you to pray for him because of the intense persecution he is facing.
