I ( Dr.Babu Narendran) became a Christian when I was a student in my teens. It was through reading the Bible and through reading some Christian literature.Being a Hindu by birth, I had much opposition from the family even to the extent of being excommunicated for a time.
But by the Lord’s mercy, I was able to sustain all those hardships. After my salvation experience and water baptism, I found myself in many different denominations to attend the Sunday meetings and I also involved in active gospel preaching and evangelism with many Christian organizations. Yet something inside me was longing for the reality of the Body of Christ.
After graduating from the Medical College, as per my desire to serve as a Medical missionary, I chose a rural village in my own native state, Kerala ( in south India) to work as a Medical Doctor under the Government. After the working hours I found myself in preaching the gospel to the villagers and conduct meetings for them. In 1983, Sally and I got married. Sally was born and brought up in a protestant Christian family and she was saved at the age of 17 in a Sunday School Teacher’s Camp. Sally is also of the same commitment and commission as Dr.Babu had- to serve the poor and the needy people through their profession After our wedding, we both worked in a city in two different hospitals and were making a good living. However, we did not have any satisfaction as we had our vision and commission disturbing us all the time. Our hearts were out and out for mission fields with people who have not heard even the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
