Chuk and His Father – A Radical Transformation Story (Part 1)
Chuk is an Indian national and a former board member of Global Hope India
. He introduces us to his father, Anjanibabu, who is from Mumbai, India. Chuk was living in New York City before moving to North Carolina. He came to North Carolina in 2007 to work for Duke University’s medical center
. For Chuck, the past 13 years has been a fascinating journey. Being with the church has given him the opportunity to experience the gospel firsthand and serve the community, and minister to people who want to listen and get to know Christ. He believes that there is still so much more work to do as there are hundreds and thousands of people coming in from different countries. This means that there is so much work for them to do to be able to minister to others.
Chuk shares the story of his journey of faith. Chuck grew up being exposed to a secular system and remembers feeling that there was a void in their lives. Chuck and Anjanibabu experienced setbacks and challenges that prevented them from achieving what they wanted. When Chuk came to the US, he received several opportunities but it all came together in 2009 when he accepted Christ as his savior. Since then, he has experienced a radical transformation in his and his family’s lives.
He shares his observations from when he first came to America and began to be a part of a majority Christian culture for the first time. He talks about the advantages of having plenty of resources, having a community that supports each other, and how that message of support in itself is so powerful. Chuck has brought some of his friends to church and he can feel them warming up to the gospel once they are exposed to it in the US. He shares some amazing stories on how a person’s life can be radically transformed by just one prayer.
In next week’s episode, you will hear Part 2 of this interview where we talk to Chuk’s father, Anjanibabu, and hear about his journey of faith.
