Samuel has been an elder at Frankston PC since 2014. He is married to Dhruti and has two children. He is studying to be a Presbyterian pastor. He migrated from India and did not come to faith until age 30.
Samuel grew up in a Christian family but left India as an unbeliever and had no desire to become Christian. It was in New Zealand he cried out to God when he faced challenging situations, and God gave him grace. He was led to Christ by his elder brother. Samuel’s mom and his brother prayed for him for many years, and God heard their prayers. Samuel found that his sins can be forgiven only by trusting in Jesus, and he trusts in Jesus’ finished work.
Samuel once said that he would never come to Melbourne. Samuel is in Melbourne since last ten years. After finishing his study, Samuel has desired to go back to India to plant a Church and to start a children’s home.
