It will be useful for generations!” – Duke’s uncle, Pastor Gnanasekaran, after he interpreted for Duke in a youth meeting in October 2022, as Duke shared a message on sexual purity.

Thank you anna for being a great blessing to many. Your testimony about quitting your HSBC job in 2008 inspired us, as I also moved from a corporate job to fulltime ministry. I used to work for TCS and I am in the fulltime ministry since August 2020.” – a young man in fulltime ministry via Whatsapp.
