My name is Lakshmi Mehta and am currently living in the U.S. in the state of Nebraska. I am originally from a Hindu family and came to a faith in Christ about two decades ago in India. When I became a Christian, my family dived deeper into Hinduism and became actively involved with the International Society of Krishna Consciousness. As a result I am often in conversations that require me to defend my faith before my family. Also, recently I have found myself in conversations with other Christians who are being drawn to eastern practices like yoga and meditation. I yearn for a clearer understanding about the philosophical distinctions between eastern religions and Christianity to communicate the gospel better. The radio programs, talks and books from RZIM have helped me immensely to grow in my understanding of Christianity and stand firm in my faith. I hope to meet others with a similar background who may have wrestled with some of the same questions I have through RZIMConnect and learn from them. Looking forward to all that God has in store here at RZIMconnect!
