Abraham was raised in the Catholic faith. At one of the darkest points in his life and on the brink of suicide, he heard a voice. He opened and read the Bible. The verses from Ecclesiastes 7:16-18 came to him and the way the Lord graciously helped Abraham come to the understanding of His grace saved him. Abraham is now a missionary in Bihar State, which is known as "the Graveyard of Missions".
