Graduation Date - April 2023
I was born and brought up in a Christian family. My parents and grandparents were very spiritual. So, I have learned many things by watching them. In my childhood, I had a good relationship with God. As I grew older, I turned away from God but the love of Christ never left me. I knew that I was away from God. Away from God meant I started spending time for worldly pleasure, and my time for prayer and meditation got shorter. Because of the grace of God, I joined Sarah Tucker College. After going to that college my life had turned upside down. I stayed in a hostel at that time. I started realizing my mistake that I was away from God. In that college my sisters were part of other religions. When they came to know Christ I spent a lot more of my time in prayer. By seeing them, I was very much wondered about Christ and started growing in my spiritual life. Only during my college, I realized and tasted the love of Christ. My college days made me renew myself in Christ.
After that, I understood that without his permission and without his will nothing will happen in our life. I started believing Christ even more. According to my faith, in my life God has planned everything already for me. I remember my college motto was. “so run that ye may obtain the incorruptible crown”. Life is a race. When we are born in this world our race has started and I have a hope that I am not running alone. My heavenly Father is also coming with me. By walking with Him surely, I will finish my race and reach my destination.
I am studying here to receive my B.D. Before coming here, I didn't have any knowledge about this. I will be studying this and the language also. But I have hope that if I finish this course then it will be more useful for me. After coming here, the subjects which I am learning will surely help for my future ministry. In my first year, I am studying languages so that I can understand what is there in the original text, the originality of the text and how it is translated. And I can say understanding Indian society is different and understanding a society is difficult but this subject helps to learn other things. Communications and so many other subjects I will be learning in these four years, I have faith that it will help for me to understand more about God and for my future. In history of Christianity I am learning so many things about the faith of Christians, sufferings of Christians and how they committed their life fully to God.
After completing my studies I want to work among women and children and equip the church. I want to do the will of God. So, I kept my future under the feet of God and have given my life in to his hands. And I am waiting in the presence of God, with what I want to do in my future. But I can say one thing surely: that wherever I may be, I will do ministry for the glory of God.
