My name is Poritosh Debnath. I used to follow Hinduism from my childhood. My father worked as a postman. He had to go to different villages for his works. One time he met an evangelist in a village and whenever he went to that village, he used to talk with that evangelist. One day that person told my father about Jesus and gave him a tract and a Bible. Afterwards, my father received Jesus and my family became Christian. But I didn’t lead my life as a real Christian. I used to go to church as if it was a rule to follow. I had much attention to the world, but I used to pray for forgiveness.
Then I got a chance to study the Bible in “Word of Life” Bible college at Khulna. During my course, an interdenominational seminar was held in Shalom AG church. Some of us from Bible college attended that seminar. There was a pastor preaching Isaiah 6:8. “Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here I am. Send me!” After hearing that verse, I was thinking why am I doing Bible classes. I still have no salvation. How can I go for Lord! Then I repented of my lifestyle and tried to hear from the Lord. I was praying with all of my heart. I was crying. That time, the pastor came to me and put his hand on my head. He told me that I confessed my sins and regret that. He added that as I confessed to Jesus and took Him as my Savior, I had my salvation at that time. Then I felt a joy and great peace in my heart. I came back to my college hostel. After that, I transformed day by day and took the decision to work for Lord for the rest of my life after completing my Bible course. Now I am serving Lord through BMW ministry in Rajshahi area. I didn’t know about the assurance of salvation. Brother Satish Soren helped me to get the assurance of salvation. Pray for me so that I can hold my life for Christ always.
