Feedback from Delegates:
NMTC helped me to understand God’s purpose for the world. I understand that God blessed me to be a blessing. God confirmed His will for full-time missionary to Africa. I understand through the importance of the culture, language and life-style of love – Ms. Chansari Kashung, Jammu EGF
NMTC opened my eyes to see God’s blessing to God’s people (the Top-line blessing) becomes a blessing to Gentiles (bottom-line blessing). I decided to be a blessing to non-Christian students. I decided to shape my arrow parts: Character, ministry skills and leading of the Holy Spirit – Mr. Mani, Amritsar EU, Punjab
I understood that I am called to be a blessing for other peoples. Through NMTC, God gave me passion for literature and Bible Translation. I got passion to for the world especially unreached world and Muslims. I decided to go as a Missionary Student to North India, especially Himachal-Mr. Lamminlung Haokip, Churachandpur, Manipur
We are thankful to WBEGF for releasing Mr. Mohan Suresh and Mr. Devaraj family to assist in Siliguri NMTC.
