Rev. S. Sam Selva Raj was born in a Christian family in Neyyoor, one of the towns in the southern most part of India. When he was 18 years old, God miraculously intervened in his life and called him to preach the glorious gospel to the people of India and the neighbouring countries. Accordingly, he obeyed God’s calling and started the Ministry, Good News Prayer Band in the year, 1969 with a group of five friends. Subsequently the name was registered as Echo of His Call Ministries and continued to do the work of the Lord. Rev. S. Sam Selva Raj faithfully executed the call of God in his life along with his secular responsibilities. He was serving in the State Government till 1994 while doing God’s work. In implicit response to the specific call he heard from the Lord for the full time ministry, he left the government position instantly and launched into the steaming enterprise of reaching the untold millions of India and the neighbouring countries. Now the Lord has been using him in all nook and corner of the globe. His wife Mrs. Jesy Veena Sam, his son Rev. Alex Samson Sam and members of his extended family are the major encouraging factors behind this successful Minister of God.
