By the grace of God I have baptized some people who have accepted Jesus into their lives as their Saviour. These are some of their testimonies:
Ramarao is 55 years old and from Nandiwada village. He was born into a Hindu family, and his great grandparents were Hindus. But one day I conducted a Gospel Evangelism Prayer Meeting in his village and he came and heard about Jesus, and he accepted Jesus in his life. Then he started watching the weekly GNU TV programme and he has been learning about Jesus. Now by the grace of God he has accepted Jesus fully by being baptised. He says,
I accepted Jesus by hearing the Gospel preached by GNU. My great grandfathers died without knowing about Jesus. But I am so happy that I came to know about Jesus and that I have been baptised. I am full of gratitude to Jesus.
Kanaka is from A.B. Nagar village. She is 52 years old and was born into a Hindu family but she has now accepted Jesus into her life. She was doing many Hindu rituals practiced from the time of her great grandfathers. One day I conducted a GNU Gospel Evangelism meeting in her village and she came and listened, and accepted Jesus. So now each week she has been watching the GNU Gospel preaching program on TV, and now she has been baptized. She says,
In my whole life I never felt happy and had no happiness. But the moment when I accepted Jesus I felt joy and the grace of God is on me. I am so happy in Christ because I have been baptised.
“I was doing idol prayers and I was not happy.”
Prasanthe is from Nandiwada Village and her age is 24 years old. She accepted Jesus when I conducted the Gospel preaching meeting in her village. When I conducted the prayer meeting she started reading the holy Bible and became very much interested in knowing about Jesus. Because of this, she has been watching the GNU TV program weekly. She has changed her way of life and accepted Jesus fully in her life and has now been baptised.
I was doing idol prayers and I was not happy. But by reading the holy Bible daily and coming to know more about Jesus and being baptised, I feel so happy and my life is saved in Christ.
Naga went from wanting to kill herself to seeing her whole family saved in Jesus. Now her happiness is full!
Naga Mane is a 32 year old woman from Thumalapale village. She was born as a Hindu and her whole family, including her husband, were Hindus. She has been facing many problems in her life and in the family. She did not know what to do. Sometimes she felt that she wanted to kill herself, thinking that she had no hope for life on this earth. One day I conducted the GNU Gospel preaching meeting. So without her husband and her family members’ knowledge, Naga Mane came to the GNU Gospel Evangelism. So by the grace of God and God’s powerful Word she has accepted Jesus and she decided not to kill herself, because she had a full life in Christ Jesus here on earth. She began praying daily and asking Jesus to change her family members and that they would allow her to take the baptism, because they would not allow her to be baptized. God heard her prayer and her husband allowed her to take the baptism. So by the grace of God she took the baptism and now she is in peace with Jesus and very happy. Even more, now her whole family has now accepted Jesus! Naga went from wanting to kill herself to seeing her whole family saved in Jesus. Now her happiness is full!
It is with great happiness that I have been baptized into Christ. I have confessed all my sins and Jesus has given me new life here on earth.
When the day came, in spite of the opposition from her family, Durga came to the front, and believing in Jesus, she was baptised..
Durga is 62 years old and she was born as a Hindu. She had never heard about Jesus before, Durga had been doing all kinds of idol rituals and became tired of going to various temples for worshipping and offering sacrifices. One day I conducted the GNU Gospel preaching in her village and she came to the prayer meeting and heard about Jesus. She accepted Jesus into her life and she wanted to take the baptism. But her entire family, including her sons and daughter refused to let her be baptized, and she was praying to Jesus about it. When the day came, in spite of the opposition from her family, Durga came to the front, and believing in Jesus, she was baptised..
I am so happy now in Christ Jesus. Before when I was Hindu I was not happy but by accepting Jesus I am very happy now thanks to Jesus.
