My testimony (ALL is grace )

Found Jesus in 27 age...
God blessed to repent for my sins and to accept Jesus as my savior..
I am working as a school teacher in 1988 and i found Jesus..
Immediately i started to witness to people in my evening times .. day times i went to my teacher job duty and evenings i went to villages to witness for Lord.. Slowly i started to share some word of God to people..
God blessed my work to plant three village churches in very remote villages..
As ministry demand is growing.. I asked God what to do.. I failed to do duty and ministry too.. so I asked God for future..
God blessed and called me to serve Him in full time.
I left the job in 1994 January
3 years later my wife also left her job to stay and help me in ministry
I am married 30y... wife working with prayer partners groups,.,. son who is finished engineering study, and left his job offers and joined with me in ministry to take care on youth and children ministry. Daughter is waiting to open an Christian mission hospital to serve to poor people .. all family members are saved.. I am living with son, daughter, sister, wife, and few other grown kids (orphans) in home.,.
As i served and as i worked for Lord from 1988 to 2016 ... God is used me to stay strong in attacks, hardships, empty stomach days, tearful days and all.. Now we we have planted 34 village churches.. all are baby churches.. may be they need some good supporters to become as self support churches in next 4 to 5 years..
God blessed to train and send 23 ministers to fields now they are working in fields for church planting work
We have constructed 17 prayer halls.. all are not buildings.. few are cottages, few are sheds, few are in rented buildings.. still I don't have home for my living.. just living in a small room which is at church side and which is with cement asbestos sheets roof.. glad to live like this.. praying for a better home..
Now i am shepherd to 4 churches.. Bible teacher to our bible college, elder/leader for this ministry which is slowly growing..
I am fallowing new testament truth which is revealed to apostle Paul in new testament.. i am believing i am not leader of Reverend or some great man.. i am a part of the body of living souls.. we have elderly leadership in ministry..
I request you all to pray for our mission works..help me to bring this ministry to right position
Thank you ..

Re: My testimony (ALL is grace )

Great to hear your testimony and about your labor to reach souls! I will be lifting you and your work up in prayer.

I have a question...have you been baptized in the name of Jesus Christ?

What a wonderful testimony of what the Lord is doing through you and your family to share the gospel to those who may never even have heard the name of Jesus!

Hello peace

What do you think about water baptism and speaking in tongues?

How were you baptized?

Silence.. hmmm...

Acts 19:1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
2 He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
3 And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized?

Thank you .... doctrinal errors making hurdles between saints..
once we are sinners ... Jesus is forgiven us

no love is working ... very sad
Thank you for your internal meaning.. God bless you

The church and the saints have a mandate and authority to test those who call themselves apostles or teachers of the truth.

Jesus warned us that false prophets would arise and deceive many.
Paul told us to be aware of false teachers that would arise in the church.
Jude wrote to us about false prophets.

We need to test and ask questions of those who are among us.

Brothers Benicasa and Blume have asked very proper questions.

Listen, why don't you tell everyone here what you told me?

It's odd that you have a thread called your testimony but feel that you should of testify concerning your doctrine in secret?

Come on, tell everyone about speaking in other tongues as God gives the utterance. Also water baptism where the one baptizing you says Jesus instead of father, son, and Holy Ghost.
