Harekrushana was born into a Hindu family in Orissa state. Because of poverty they used to struggle to get their daily meals. When he was nine his father was killed because of a land dispute. When his father died, their situation worsened, and they spent many nights with empty stomachs. As the eldest son, he took responsibility to support the family. While studying, he worked as a daily laborer. By God’s grace he was able to graduate from a local high school.

Without Christ his anger against his father’s murderers grew stronger and stronger. He joined a local gang to destroy the murderer’s families. When his uncle shared the gospel with love, he responded to Christ and his heart was changed. He now has a great burden to reach his Hindu family. God called him to serve Him full-time and thus he joined MITS in 2009. He is graduating with a M. Div. in March 2012. There are many young men and women like Harekrushana ready to pursue their call. Unfortunately they cannot get a quality education due to the lack of finance. You can invest in a future global leader.
