Stephen saved and set free

I am from Sami, Paletwa Township, in southern part of Chin State. I have four sisters. My parents are Christians. I thought that I could be a Christian because my parents are Christians. I learned about God, Christ, and many stories from the Bible even from my childhood but never came to the saving knowledge of Christ as my personal Savior and Lord. I started smoking, drinking alcohol, and using even drugs. But thank God that I heard the genuine gospel of Jesus Christ in 2019 and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as my Lord and. Savior. God set me free from the bondage of bad habits and gave me a new desire and ambition. After being saved, I want to live for God and serve Him alone. My parents are not able to support me to study in Bible school as they are living in Paletwa where there is battle between government troops and Arakan army. I am so thankful to God for this wonderful privilege to study at DTS through the support of PRMI. Thank God for DTS where I am disciplined, trained, and equipped for the glorious ministry. I pray and hope that I will be able to serve the Lord after spending time at DTS.
