From seeker to evangelist

In many parts of the world, following Jesus can be costly. Even asking spiritual questions can bring serious, negative consequences. And where do you go with your questions? These days, you would probably start with the internet. That’s why so many ministry teams today are embracing digital strategies to connect with people seeking God and looking for Him online.

Born in South Asia, Tom was expected to follow his grandfather into the Hindu priesthood. But God got hold of him and showed him a new way. Now, Tom follows Christ and uses media to share the message of salvation with people like himself, both in his home country and scattered around the world. You can help multiply media ministry by giving now to Pioneers Media Outreach or read more of Tom’s story, read Finding Faith in a Himalayan Village.
