I was born in Hydrabad, India. My father was an orphan and was raised in the home of Christian missionaries. I came to the U.S. as a teen-ager, and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior.
My wife Mary and I are trained as school teachers, and we taught in Northern Nigerian for five years. Later, we had the opportunity to come to the U.S. where we settled in the Bay Area of California. I attended the Mennonite seminary in Fresno, CA and am ordained as a Christian minister. We have three wonderful grown daughters, and we live in Turlock, CA.
Mary and I are very involved in reaching out with the love of Christ to Muslims, Sikhs, and Hindus in central California. We have planted churches in various cities, and offer seminars on beliefs of these religions, and ways in which we Christians can welcome them to America. We also provide English language training, as well as preparation for the driving test and citizenship interview. By offering these practical helps, newly arriving immigrants get help they need and learn that followers of Jesus are loving people.
