GBC Student Nehemiah Khai Hae’s Testimony and Ministry Plans
Nehemiah Khai Hae is a 3rd year student in the Bachelor of Theology program at Grace Bible College, central India. His birthday: May 5
I am from a small village in Mizoram (see circle on the left; GBC is where the arrow is). I was born and brought up in a good Christian family. Both of my parents are alive; I have a brother and sister and I am the youngest one in my family. Even though I was brought up in a Christian home, I was was addicted to alcohol. I was reading my Bible but never understood it’s meaning. One day I attended a Christian Crusade in my village and that was the day when God’s Word convicted my heart, and I confessed my sin before the Lord Jesus Christ and by his grace I was saved. Since that day, I have been growing in the Lord.
COVID: My family has not been affected by COVID but some of my friends have been COVID positive, by the grace of God now they are well. During the lockdown, I have been with my friends on the GBC campus only (Because of COVID, Nehemiah and a number of our GBC students who are from far away, has not been able to be home for almost two years) and that was a hard time for me in the sense that I missed my family. But the Principal took good care of me and the others. It was a blessed time for me because during the lockdown God gave me the opportunity to spend time with him and grow spiritually with him.
My favorite chapter in the Bible is John chapter 3. My favorite subject at GBC is Systematic Theology. I am enjoying very much the GBC practical ministry of going to children’s homes and teaching, singing songs and sharing the good news with orphan children, telling them about the love Jesus has for them. Personally, I enjoy singing, music, reading and playing soccer. I enjoy arranging the messy things.
My future plans: I would like to be an evangelist sharing Christ among my own people. After completing this year and graduating, I want to continue my studies (in a master’s program) to be fully prepared for ministry.
Nehemiah is one of our sponsored students and it’s because of our faithful sponsors that he and other students are able to receive their Bible college education. Would you consider investing into the lives of a GBC student at $100 per month, or a half sponsorship at $50 per month, if that is more convenient?
There is an urgent need for 12 young scholars at GBC to have sponsors in order that they will be able to continue receiving their Christian education at Grace Bible College. IMI’s John Cook co-founded GBC with Dr. Pramod Tantarpale in 2003 with the purpose of providing a high quality Christian college for fully preparing young people to go into Christian ministry or as a place men and women going into business, education, medical or engineering fields would be able to build their lives on a solid foundation for a lifetime of service to the Lord in their respective fields. Many GBC alumni continue in full time ministry with a number ministering among unreached people groups in India in effective church planting, the Jesus Film and evangelism.
You can sponsor at Indigenous Ministries under “Donate,” or mail in your check to the IMI office with the note “new GBC student Sponsorship.” We’ll be sure you get your new student’s profile and picture! Thank you! Note: Students do not receive cash. Monies given towards sponsorships are credited towards tuition, room and board.
