PREFACE

 

This story is taken right out of my life in everyday living as a teacher travelling from country to country.  Even though I did not realize it as it went, there seems to be a sequence and a plan which I certainly did not make, but was evolved.

 

I was born in a christian family and embedded in me was its doctrine and social morality.  Like every other rational being, I rebelled against the institutional church and the doctrines only to relearn them and be a defender of faith, as a process of growth. It was the beginning of the air travels as opposed to sea travel which openned up avenues of jobs in countries far from home. It took me to places like Ethiopia, Ghana, Jamaica, Sudan, Yemen and South Sudan - places where Christian missions treaded to enter.  But it was these places that joyfully received me.  I found myself defending the faith of my fathers. To which was added my wife, who happened to be the great grand daughter of one of famous reformer of Mar Thoma Church.  Invariably she started a Bible Study at home gathering all those who are interested in every place we happened to be.  In the process we studied with the London Bible College to equip ourselves.

 

This book is an attempt to trace the history of Christianity of those countries where I was called into and my place in the history of Christianity in those countries. I acknowledge the love, care and hospitality of my hosts in every country.
