My name is Pr. Santhosh Pandalam. From my childhood onwards I had a passion for books and literature. From the time I got saved onwards I had a dream and vision to start a Christian News Paper. In his right time God fulfilled my dreams. Since literature has a big impact in the spiritual, ethical and moral life of the people, I hope and believe that my endeavor will be blessing for many people..
My Short Testimony
I was born on 17th May 1972 as the youngest son of my parents in Ulayankonam in Thiruvananthapuram district, Kerala. I lost my father in my childhood so I had to face so many difficulties and trials as a child. Due to the circumstances of my family, I had to work for my daily bread from my child hood onwards. So I did not get enough time to go to school and get a good education. But still I utilized the very little time I got for my school education in a proper way.
In the year 1988 I have failed my Secondary School Leaving Certificate Examination. And I was worried about my further studies because there was no way for me to continue my studies. I attended a gospel meeting which was held at Pantha C.S.I. Church on 30th September 1989 and I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal saviour and on that night onwards the Lord turned my life into a new direction. Again I passed my SSLC Examination. After that I had a desire in my heart to preach the gospel and work for God. In order to fulfil that desire I joined to study the word of God at Paranthal Bible College, Adoor as a correspondent student. During this time I also done Air condition and Refrigeration course from Jamco I T C, Pathanamthitta and Computer and Printing technology from KSAVRC, Pathanamthitta. After this I have worked with Parampil Printers and Thenguvilayil printers at Nariyapuram, Pathanamthitta Kerala.
After sometime God again gave me opportunity to study His word and I did my B Th from New Life Biblical Seminary and M Div from Ebenezer Theological Seminary and Christian Counselling from Agape Gospel Mission.
God has granted me his grace to establish his churches in different parts of Kerala and Tamil Nadu States. In Kerala I have been working as the Pastor in charge of many churches too. Thevarakkonam I P C, Mathai Junction, Bharathipuram, Immanuel Worship centre Thiruvalla, Mukkanjiram are some of the places where I have been Pastoring. Apart from this I am giving leadership to the Lord’s work in different places of Tamil Nadu such as Tirunelveli, Tutukkudi and Virudhunagar Districts. We have registered a society known as Mizpah Gospel Church and under this society we have ministry in almost 12 Villages in Tamil Nadu.
As the Lord helps me and grants his grace upon me, I preach the gospel in different parts of India and abroad and leads many people to baptism and true worship. I had to face lots of oppositions and even physical attacks from some of the religious fanatics in my ministry. But still God give me the courage to continue His ministry.
I got married on 21st December 1996 with Sherly, from Kudassanadu, Pandalam, Kerala. God has blessed our family life with three children. Two daughters (Sherin, Merlin) and one son (Eben). I am residing at Nariyapuram, near to Pandalam, Kerala with my family for the last 25 years. We all are involved in the ministry in different ways.
“As for me I and my house hold, we will serve the Lord”. This is our pledge and motto
. Praise the Lord!!
