Dr. Faiz Rahman Speaks At School Chapel Service

One of the top boarding schools in the nation had the founder of Good News India speak for their student chapel.

Reverend Dr. Faiz Rahman
visited Canyonville Christian Academy and spoke to the Christian Academy’s student body at the school’s weekly chapel service.

Rev. 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.

This includes a remote tribe who has been, until now, a violent, marauding, primitive tribal group.

Good News India also operates a large Leper Colony with 50 adults and their 85 children. Very few ministries are reaching out in a concerted and strategic effort to minister to the many hundreds of lepers that live a miserable existence in Orissa and West Bengal. Good News India feeds/clothes/medicates about 350 lepers in 4 different centers.

Rev. Rahman continued to share stories and testimonies to the students for 45min.  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.
