My name is Vickram Mohabir. I am a Guyanese and a born-again believer for 30 years. Growing up in a Hindu home, I was encouraged to be a Pandit, but this never came to be since I was introduced to Jesus at the age of 13, and I have never looked back.
Today, I am a pastor at two churches in Guyana. I am a husband and a father, and I have volunteered my services to Wesleyan church. I am also presently working as the camp chairman/coordinator of a large camp site in my country. Every year we see hundreds of Christians trained and equipped with the tools to serve in God’s kingdom.
My brothers and sisters in God called me out of the darkness and into His marvelous light, so that I would, in turn, be a vehicle for many more Hindus like myself to know Him as their personal savior. Being a Christian witness to people of my community is of the utmost importance to me.
I have recently completed my doctorate in Christian Counseling. I am deeply grateful to GO! who have been helping me with my tuition, the cost of which would have been a tremendous financial burden to me and my family.
Counseling is a critical need in this target group. Many of the unsaved Hindus are taking their own lives, and today in Essequibo and Berbice record high rates of suicide are being reported. In fact, Guyana is one of the countries with the highest suicide rates. Having finished my studies, I am now poised to help hundreds of young people who feel there is no hope for them in this world.
