I give thanks to the Lord for His abundant grace and love. I give thanks to Him that He has given me a beautiful testimony in my life. I want to share the story of receiving Jesus in my life.
My name is Goljar Hansda. I am 22 years old. My father is Susil Hansda and mother is Momota Murmu. We are four brothers, and I am the second among them. I used to go to church regularly as my family was a regular member of Lutheran Church, but I haven’t seen real faith in Christ in my family or in any member of the church.
My parents used to attend every evening devotion and I used to join them. I didn’t know the importance of salvation and didn’t know the necessity of receiving Christ in my heart as personal savior. I took baptism when I was a child as it was a rule from our church. All I knew is after taking baptism, you become the child of God.
In 2018, I was introduced to BMW in our Rajshahi area, and I was admitted into their Bible diploma course. I started to know about God, Jesus, and His plan and became interested in knowing more. I came to know from BMW that we cannot go to heaven if we do not receive Christ as our personal savior in our life.
From March 11 to April 10, 2019, I was in Dhaka for a one-month rural pastoral training arranged by NCFB. During the training, a pastor was teaching us about new life and how to get new life on 16th March. He read John 3:16 and 5:24. The words touched me, and I surrendered my life to the Lord and received Christ in my life as my personal savior. After that, I began to see the difference in my life in every way, in my talk, in my walk, in my thoughts and in my behaviors.
I continued BMW Bible course and volunteered as a team leader after coming back from the training. In July 2019 I got the assurance of salvation through the BMW minicamp. Now I know that I will surely go to heaven (1 John 5:13). From that day, I decided that I will work for the kingdom of God and from then on keep volunteering with BMW. God has seen my passion for His kingdom and has given me an opportunity to work as a volunteer staff in BMW from April 2021. I am so grateful to God for His blessings. Please keep me in your prayer so that I can stay faithful in my work.
