Personal Testimony…… Rev. John Moses Dussi.

  

“As I was one of the badly hurt victims of poverty.  I developed love and compassion for the poor and needy children, right from my childhood.   A few Indian social reformers and revolutionary leaders like Dr. B.R. Ambedkar inspired me, whom I followed passionately. I began to write and sing songs that propagated their principles and the revolution. Some of the key issues were  to ‘raise voice and fight for own rights; the constitution of India granted equal rights for all citizens’.  During my high school studies, I was given New Testament , which I read diligently. The life and love of Jesus Christ  for the poor attracted me. His compassion was imprinted in my mind.   His love for the down trodden challenged me.   As I read the Bible more and more it was evident that Jesus was the greatest social reformer and a great revolutionary, who loved the bad and the sinful, but hated their sin. Soon I began to hunger to know more about Jesus. I understood that all the reformers that I followed were mere human, but I learnt that Jesus is indeed God and the Savior of the human mankind.  In spite of these facts, I admired him only as a Hero of the poor.  I didn’t believe him as my personal savior.

CONVERSION AND PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

 

It was in the year 1988 when I was suffering from Typhoid; my sister took me to the Church for a healing prayer. The fever was so severe and every one thought I would die. But in the Church when a believer prayed by applying oil on me, I felt great relief and the fever simply vanished. This was a new and amazing experience.   Only then I realized the power and love of Jesus towards me and soon I accepted him as my Lord and personal Savior.  Immediately I took baptism and Christened as John Moses.  An incident in 1991 moved me radically. Christians in Chundur, a village in Guntur district of my state were killed, cut into pieces, their body parts put in gunny bags and were thrown into a river.  This was an atrocity against poor and dalit Christians.   This hurt me and I went back into social Reformation, where I joined in a revolutionary group and voiced through writing and singing songs about Communist philosophy.

 

MY CAREER

 

I did my Bachelor Degree in Sociology and was working as a Journalist for a News Agence called, ‘Vartha’ .at Visakhapatnam. Later I joined as an Agricultural Officer at Bhubaneswar , Orissa.   Since  I was having a Diploma in Fitter  trade, from   Industrial Training Institute, additionally I started my own business, ‘ Alpha Engineering Works;  at Kotthavalasa, near Vizianagaram.   This was being mamaged by my relatives.  God blessed me in every wok I did.  As my passion for the suffering poor and the ignored community,    I went for studies at International Institute of Correctional Management Course  (IICM) in the year 2005 and Restorative Justice in Queen’s University , Canada .  This became instruments to take up ‘Prision Ministry’ in the subsequent years.

 

MARRIAGE AND GOD’S CALL

 

I was married to Ms. G. Sushma in the year 1999 on 17th February. She is a strong believer of Christ.  While I was steadily growing on social activities, my wife was so much concerned about my spiritual status. She pulled me into regular and fasting prayers. It was during these days on the early hours of Dec’30, 1999, I heard God’s voice in a vision. The voice I heard was ‘FOLLOW ME, I WILL MAKE YOU FISHERS OF MEN’  I rushed to my wife and shared the vision with her . After both of us prayed and sought the Lord for some more clarity and direction,  we  decided to start ‘preaching the Gospel to the unreached’. Immediately I resigned  my job.   Both of us started preaching in some of the villages of Vizianagaram.  However, my business enterprise continued.  Only  in February 2001,  I accepted the calling  and I assumed  the Lord’s work fulltime.  Now, by God’s grace, it is grown to be Five-fold ministry.
