Ravi Kumar is a Mormon pioneer in India. It’s not always easy being one of the relatively few members in one of the most populated countries of the world.   I’m struck by the faith required of Indian youth to leave for missionary service at a time when most of their peers are moving forward with their university studies.  It’s not easy to do this when your culture doesn’t understand the value of a mission.

Ravi shares his story of converting to the church in his youth and the journey to his mission. Still very active in the church, Ravi has a stalwart commitment to not only his local fellow members, but also his continual missionary efforts.  Ravi truly lives up to his saying, “Once a missionary… always a missionary…”

Enjoy getting to know Ravi Kumar of Hyderabad, India!
