About 10 year back Jetha’s family members were Hindus. His uncle went to Mizoram in Northeast India for work and became a Christian. He came back to Bihar and shared his new faith with his relatives and neighbors.
About 20 families came to the Lord, 15 of those families were relatives that included Jetha’s parents. The uncle started a church in the village which is still growing. Jetha’s two more uncles became Christians and they also started two churches. All these churches are growing. These pastors are not educated. So they decided to send their sons to our college for training. Jetha’s cousin also is a student at Logos.
Jetha used to read the Bible every day but when God convicted him in 2007 he accepted Christ as his savior along with his best friend. He was already convinced by reading the Bible but when his uncle preached the gospel, the Holy Spirit worked in heart and brought him the conviction. He received Believer’s baptism in 2007. At the completion of his high school education, he decided to do God’s work in Bihar. There are thousands of villages never heard the gospel. But he needed Bible training. He is a first year student at Logos. Thanks so much for sponsoring him. He or his family could never pay any fee because they are very poor.
I pray that God reward you and provide for your needs. Thanks again for sponsoring him.
