Accepting those Stigmatized by the Society

In 1995, we as a family moved to Bangalore from the US after 21 years of secular job.  All those were years when the Lord was changing me from a hypocrite to a person with deep convictions and desire to live a God honouring practical Christian life. What always challenged me is the fact that […]
