Motto: To do the will of Him who sent me and to complete it.
I am Bro. Kalyan Ekka, a native of Gumla, Jharkhand. In 2007, I was at crossroads in my life not knowing what exactly the Lord wanted of me. I got to know of Santvana Community through a friend and decided to come and see the community. That coming proved to be a blessing. I slowly got into a deeper relationship with Jesus through prayer before the Blessed Sacrament at the 24 hours intercession centre at Burari in Delhi. During the time spent in prayer, I learnt to surrender my life to the Lord. I was not able to identify any ministry in the beginning. Later as I sat before the Blessed Sacrament and also slowly as I started knowing more about the Community, I was able to identify what exactly the Lord is wanting from me. I discerned the Lord calling me to be part of the Santvana Community. So I surrendered all the talents the Lord has given me for the sake of the mission.
Now I am serving as the co-ordinator for the education project for the migrated tribal children from the marginalized section of the society. “My food is to do the will of Him who sent me and to complete it” Jn 4: 34 is the word that touched me and keeps me going with Santvana’s main ministry of Prayer and Evangelisation. The Lord is also using me today to help with the music ministry during the programs conducted by the community.
