Dr Faiz visits Soniya at Canyonville Christian Academy, an International Christian Boarding School in Canyonville, OregonDr. Faiz Rahman came and spoke at CCA’s weekday Chapel service October 16th, 2012.  He is the founder of Good News India a nonprofit organization that rescue’s orphaned and /or destitute children in India BEFORE they are sold into bonded slavery.  This ministry has an outreach to the destitute children of Southern Asia and operates 25 centers in North India, where nearly 2500 children are fed, housed, educated and taught the Word of God

Dr. Rahman spoke on how he came to know Christ, as he was born and raised in a Muslim home in Calcutta, India.  In one of his testimonies he explained how there were miracles happening around him that had no other explanation except that it was God.  This led him to believe that the one and only God was very real, he found the joy of Salvation in Jesus Christ while he was in High School at the Assembly of God Church School in Calcutta under the ministry of Missionaries Mark and Huldah Buntain.  As Dr Rahman finished, he then asked Soniya Sherpa a boarding student from India to share a few words of testimony.  Soniya is one of the rescued children from Rev Rahman’s ministry.

 Soniya Sherpa came to CCA through help of M.J. Benson a CCA alumnus herself. M.J. is currently on staff with Good News India, and was instrumental in guiding Soniya through the 2 year process to complete all necessary paper to be able to come to CCA. As part of CCA’s outreach for teenagers from all over the world, the school is providing Soniya with a scholarship to make it possible for her to attend.   Soniya has excellent English skills, is a very good student and is a beautiful Christian young lady.
