Gunasekaran Annamalai

The following information is from an article out of the Gadsden Times, July 15, 2005:

Elder Gunasekaran Annamalai

Is Primitive Baptist minister from the Indian state of Tamil Nadu.

Bro. Guna was born into the lowest caste of his village and did not believe in God.

"Because of the poverty, I had a big question," he said. He hit bottom 30 years ago and decided to commit suicide but said he didn't "because I was terrified of eternity." Bro. Guna had heard the Gospel and felt he needed to know more. He started reading the Bible and got the help of an evangelist in his town. "God came into my life in 1975 - Aug. 5," he said. "Then my life radically changed." Bro. Guna described his feelings as a "thirst to spend time with God."

He ranked at the bottom of his school classes at the time but realized it was because of the malnutrition that afflicted him.

Bro. Guna got a job in an orphanage, where he was able to eat regular meals. The new diet allowed him to better concentrate on his education, and soon he completed home study to make up his high school work and go on to bachelor's and master's degrees.

Instead of going to the United States permanently for the comfortable American lifestyle Bro. Guna stayed in his village to work with people like him who were born into the low castes.

"The Lord led us to start orphanages, as there are great needs to take care of the children," he said.

Gadsden Primitive Baptist Church is collecting money to give to the Good Samaritan Trust Fund to continue the work in Bro. Guna's home. The mission there has begun a health care program for wellness education and preventive care, and 200 orphans and destitute children rely on the orphanage.

"We give free nutritious food, clothing (and) education," he said. "Above all, we give spiritual nurturing."
