Iím Karunakar Reddy, born to Hindu parents. Being a guy whoís serious about studies, Iíve finished my bachelorís degree in Electronics and Communications Engineering, moved to Hyderabad, one of the major IT hubs in South India, in search of a job.
I was a devout Hindu and extremely particular about the customary Hindu tradition, in all walks of my life. I used to exhibit an enormous zeal in any matter related to Hindu religion. I was under the impression that, believing any God is okay, and thereís no need to trust one true God.
At a critical juncture in my life, I was very strongly compelled by certain circumstances in my life to come to a conclusion that, thereís only one God and Iíve to find him at any cost. Disturbed by a mountain of doubts and questions related to God in my mind, I was in search of a person who can just clarify and give fitting answers and once for all relieve me off this burden.
One fine day, my friend led me to Apostle Ranjith Ophir and the very next moment Iíve bombarded him with the ocean of queries that I had about God. Apostle Ranjith Ophir,was extremely patient in answering every question Iíve asked and has given concrete evidences complemented by solid logic, as to why Jesus Christ is the one and only true God.
After that, Iíve started to verify whether the proofs put forth by Apostle Ranjith Ophir are present in various other Hindu Scriptures or not. During this time, the Lord strengthened me by speaking with His voice and through dreams too. Spending enough time in this investigation, Iíve realised that Jesus Christ is the only true God and thereís absolutely no chance for anybody else to be so. I came to a firm conclusion that only through Jesus, I can go to Heaven.
I was immersion water baptized by Apostle Ranjith Ophir on May 4th, 2003. God started to work in a deeper way in my life and gave me the revelation about His purpose for this generation Ė Unite all Christians, by driving away doctrinal confusion and plant them in the Truth, what the Apostles in the first century believed. God has given me His abundant grace to stay in this ministry and do my part.
God has put a special burden in me to minster among the little ones. I was inducted as a teacher in ACE Clubs, one of the wings of Ophir Ministries, and Iíve started working among the kids in many places who donít know God, to bring them Christ at a very tender age.
God has blessed me with a job as a Lecturer in Dept of ECE at Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University (JNTU), Hyderabad. Currently, Iím doing my PhD too. My family members are slowly on track to know Jesus. Please pray for the salvation of my family and my ministry. May God alone be thoroughly exalted through this testimony. Amen!
