Alexander Silver ministry in India

He served the Lord in the Arakkonam district of Tamil Nadu. He embraced an ordinary life and lived amidst the poor and low caste people just like them. This enabled him to win them for Christ. The lives of the low caste people were filled with ignorance and poverty. They suffered from untouchability and lived like bond slaves.

It was at this juncture, Alexander educated the people and eventually became their guide. He welcomed people from different communities and placed them in his school, where he taught them Bible and other lessons. So many schools were started due to his sincere efforts. He built separate hostels for boys and girls, which made them independent and self-reliant.

He promoted equality among the people and treated all the believers as one in Christ Jesus. He showed no partiality, just like Christ. He lived out the Gospel before the people through his acts of kindness and compassion. It is believed that he traveled on horseback to preach the Gospel and his tireless efforts brought many people into the Kingdom of God. He finished his earthly race faithfully and went to be with the Lord in 1954. Alexander Silver
