Bro. John Mathew's Family Testimony

FamilySnap Praise the Lord I am John Mathew born and brought up in a RC family. After my studies I came to Bombay for job. My wife is Lissy John who is born and brought up in Orthodox family. She is serving in Indian Railways. Our marriage was on 23 Apr 1987. We are blessed with a son Joshua and a daughter Reeba. After our marriage I left my job and started a small factory of making electric bulbs. After two years it went on loss. Then slowly problems began in our life and lost peace of mind. Meanwhile a blessed minister of God, Pastor Mathew Samuel from Kerala came to our home when he was on a visit to Bombay. He shared gospel to us and he told us Jesus is the way of salvation. My wife accepted Jesus and she took decision to take baptism, but I was not. I attended an all night prayer and a Word of God “I know your deeds that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other!” (Rev3:15) spoke me and touched my heart. Immediately I too took decision and we both baptized on 20 Oct 1991. Miraculously Jesus Christ delivered us from the troubles we were going through. Afterwards also we had faced many problems but God had made good exits out of all these time to time. There was no fellowship at Dokhali that time and we were attending worship at Ghatkoper. The Almighty enabled us to start a small fellowship at our home. Though neighbors objected many times and even police came to our home, our Savior Jesus delivered from all the kind of problems. I conclude my testimony quoting a verse from Bible. “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” (Heb 13:5). Amen.
