Below is an email that Javan received from a young man named Jonnada. Jonnada was one of the graduates of Grace Christian Ministry. He had given his testimony during the graduation ceremony this January while we were visiting. In summary, he had rejected Christ because of the persecution he saw his father receive in India as a follower of Christ. Because of what he saw his father go through, he ran away. He ran away from Christ and ran away from home…literally. It was a real life Prodigal Son story. One night he was alone and crying when a missionary found him and lead him to Christ. After accepting Christ he enrolled at GCM and just graduated. Now he is returning to Andhra Pradesh to partner with his father in proclaiming the Gospel in the nation of India. Praise God.
I post this email to show you the faith that we experienced while in India. These people who were sold out for the mission. I love that he requests prayers for the ministry. He isn’t asking for prayers for comfort or fortune, but that the Gospel would go forth.
