I Trusted Indian Batsmen and they Squashed My Hopes, But…. Duke Jeyaraj

England v India - Fifth Test

In the England-India Test Series of 2108 got over yesterday I hoped that Kohli-Hardik will take them to a win in the first Test (but they fell 30 odd runs short). I hoped that Kohli-Rahane will take them to a win in the fourth Test (but they fell 60 runs short). And yesterday, I hoped Rahul-Pant would take them to a win in the fifth Test and they fell 118 runs short. Three times these Indian cricketers squashed my hopes and I was disappointed. That reminded me of the Bible verse: “those who put their hope in Me (Yahweh) will not be put to shame” (Rom. 10:11). – Duke Jeyaraj,

Rev. Dr. Duke Jeyaraj is a trained Agricultural Engineer [B. Tech from SHIATS, Allahabad, India], who did not pursue a career in the line of his education but nevertheless enjoys growing cacti in the balcony of his flat, during his spare time! He could have been a cricket commentator but prefers to wrap Bible Truth around cricket magic moments and other interesting-to-Google Genners contemporary events. God’s call upon him made him utterly restless and he obeyed that call to by founding the Grabbing the Google Generation from Gehenna Mission (G4 Mission) to finally find serenity after having served as a International Bank Customer Service Executive/Youth Pastor/Bible College Teacher/Missionary/Youth Mag Editor. G4 Mission is not a church but an inter-denominational ministry to present-day people, a ministry which Duke works full time for, as an itinerant presenter/preacher since 2008 putting to use the formal theological training he received from Southern Asia Bible College in Bangalore [M. Div & Doctor of Ministry]. Duke is called ‘dad’ by Dale (16) and Datasha (12) and ‘hubby’ by Evangelin and calls Hyderabad, India, his adopted home. Duke has preached by invitation beyond his national borders (we are talking about nations such as Bangladesh, Singapore, Germany, Nepal and the United Arab Emirates).
