Our family: Subodh, Rosy & Naithan

"Let me tell you little bit about my background. I am from a place called Gajapati, a very mountainous area. From Bhawanipatna (Kalahandi district) it is 250 kilometers. It is a fully tribal dominated district. God has brought me to Bhawanipatna (Kalahandi) to serve Him in the Western part of Orissa. According to a UN report the Kalahandi district is known for famine, starvation and the sale of children. It is in the hottest zone in Asia Minor.

I did my M. DIV. in Bangalore, an affiliate to Asia Theological Association. I have worked in Orissa for the last ten years as a teacher, pastor, convener and translator throughout Western Orissa. God has given us a special burden for the state of Orissa. In the same way my wife Rosy also completed her Master of Divinity at Tiruvilla, Kerala, an affiliate of Asia Theological Seminary. Now we are serving the Lord here in Orissa.

Let me just give you some brief highlights about the state of Orissa: There are 30 districts in the state of Orissa. Bhubanaewsar is the capital of Orissa. It is known as the temple city of India. Orissa is the known as the soul of India. Two percent of the population in Orissa are Christians and most of these are Catholic and Lutherans. Baptism and conversion is banned by the government of Orissa."

Orissa, the poorest state in India, is dominated by Hindus

Luke 10:9 "Heal the sick who are there and tell them,
'The kingdom of God is near you.’"
