PERSONAL TESTIMONY: Pastor Dauda (Oriya language for David) Digal was born into a nominal Christian family in Orissa state. He accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior in a Christian Children Home. After his college, he was working as the Project manager with World Vision for several years. God called him into the preaching ministry. He resigned his good job for the sake of Jesus Christ. Several times he was brutally beaten up by Hindu fanatics. In 2004 he was badly beaten up by Hindu people when he was sharing the saving knowledge of Christ with a few people. They left him thinking he was already dead.
Jesus saved his life and he is alive today. In false accusations he was imprisoned for eight days in the jail. When he was in the jail, he shared the Word of God with many criminals, who are now good believers. In 2008 Christian persecution, he left everything in the home and lived inside the dense forest for several days without food and drinking water. His house in the village was totally destroyed, valuables were looted, domestic animals ( cows, goats , agricultural water pump , and paddy seeds)were taken away by the Hindu People. God saved his life and his wife and two sons. By faith they serve the Lord with total dependence upon God. Please pray for Pastor Dauda Digal and his family.
