Born in 1979, i grew up in the Roman Catholic church until i attended an evangelistic meeting and heard, for the first time in my life, a clear presentation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
I was confronted with the burden of my sin, my helplessness and depravity. But i was also confronted with the unconditional love of God, His grace and forgiveness through Christ alone. That day, i accepted Jesus Christ as my savior and Lord and from that day on i have been walking with my Lord.
Since then the desire to share and preach the Gospel to the world kept growing in my heart. i preached my first message at age 17 and attended all kind of theological training in South Africa and in Brazil.
I have worked with the Victory Baptist church for more than 10 years as assistant pastor,leading worship,doing bible study,preaching and teaching.
In December 2010, i was appointed pastor at the Curepipe Baptist Church after one year of interim. I joined Campus Crusade for Christ Mauritius in June 2010 as missionary because we have the same vision and focus that is to fulfill the Great commission.
Mervin Pool and i connected because we have the same passion which is apologetics, teaching and evangelism outreach/missions.
We spend quite a lot of time searching the Bible about difficult issues. We love to spend time with others discussing these things as we are exhorted in the Word to contend for the faith and speak out the truth with love.
I would like to see the youth in the church today developing the same attitude like the Bereans did in the time of Paul the apostle.
“Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true.” ACTS 17:11.
STUDENT LED MOVEMENT (VLM)
From April 2 to April 14/2011 Campus Crusade for Christ Student Led Movement (SLM) National Team Leaders from all over Southern and Eastern Africa were gathered in Addis Ababa. I attended this vision consultation program. The student movement globally is following three campus strategies
- Base Campus
- Catalytic campus
- and Virtual Campus
I attended this consultation to understand and use the virtual tools CCCI has come up to fulfill the Great commission.Studies shows that globally students in average spend 5 hours everyday on the internet.
http://www.everystudent.com is the website we use to reach students for Christ online. It was very exciting for me to see the staffs using EveryStudent.com site and facebook to witness their faith.
Testimony from Bruno Mollet from Mauritius – How he met someone online and that person came to know Jesus Christ. Very encouraging.
Talking to Christians about online evangelism has brought up quite a few misperceptions about sharing the gospel online. When you think of online evangelism, have you ever fallen prey to any of these myths?
Myth #1 – People don’t search for spiritual things online.
Truth – Millions of people each day conducted spiritual searches online. Although we must assume that these relate to all types of religions, including searches for horoscopes, fortune telling, and similar New Age issues, we have seen huge response to the gospel message online with thousands of people each day indicating a decision to follow Jesus.
Myth #2 – You can’t be a missionary online – you need to go to the people and see them face to face.
Truth – With over 900 “online missionaries” answering more than 250,000 emails in 2007, this myth has been debunked. But let’s hear it straight from the people who answer these emails each day. One OM told us: “For health reasons I am limited in the ways I can serve so this is just great for me. I can do this at any hour, when I feel well, and am not tied to a roster. I have enjoyed the privilege of praying for people all over the world and I am sure I have grown in the process.” Or how about this comment, “I am thoroughly enjoying this and I have a made one good friend so far through doing this. I am a bit shy in sharing my faith face to face, even though I have done that before. This means really frees me up to boldly share Christ with people.” The truth is online missionaries are sharing their faith with people all over the world, every single day, without ever leaving their home.
Myth #3 – You have to be trained in theology to share the gospel online
Truth – Again, our online missionaries have debunked this one. With an online Bible, time to pray about the response, a database with answers and scriptures to almost any question AND a Community Leader backing you up, Christians with all levels of Bible knowledge can share with others online.
Myth #4 – You don’t know who is saying “Yes” to Jesus online, so how do you know it is real?
Truth – Just as in a tent revival, someone raising their hands doesn’t always mean that Jesus has come into their life. But because our online missionaries personally respond to the emails that come in, we have a pretty good sense of how many people are following through on their decision. The comments these new believers make to our online missionaries says it all: “One man told me that he felt that there was no one out there for him, he said that he had sent emails to multiple websites and no one answered any of his questions, but now that I answered, he feels that he is not alone and that there is someone out there who cares and who is praying for him!”
Myth #5 – I don’t know how to use computers very well, so how can I be an online missionary?
Truth – The great thing about the response system the online missionaries use is that it is so easy! If you can send an email, you can share your faith online. We have online missionaries of all ages, all walks of life and all technical skill levels. But the key is not the system, it is in the sharing with others.
