Intern & Missionary
Raja joined Awaken Ministries in 2019. He shares the vision to see his country set free through the blood of Jesus. Raja grew up in a Christian home but did not accept Jesus as Lord until after he nearly died from tuberculosis at the age of 16. In this moment of weakness his mother told him “No doctor has the power to save you but Jesus can. Now is the time to repent and come to Christ.” He took his mother’s advice and he heard the Lord say “come follow me”. Raja could not believe God was calling him. He was miraculously healed and he began to go after God to learn more which brought him to be baptized at the age of 18 and graduating bible college. Since that day of baptism he says there has been no turning back. He actively pursues the Lord each day, preaching the gospel and leading the lost to salvation through Jesus. He is a missionary in his own country and uses unconventional ways to reach those that have been unreachable.
