This is my tribute to the well known Bible teacher of this century who worked among the Marathi speaking section of India.
Mr Mirajkar was raised by a missionary woman (Miss H H Robertson) from England who was mother to many motherless for 57 years in India.
At the age of 12 years, Mr Mirajkar had an encounter with Yeshua (Jesus). He accepted Yeshua as his Lord and saviour. He was a good student.
After his graduation from the college, he worked as an teacher at a college in Belgaum. Mean while he got married to his beautiful bride.
After few years of teaching at the college, he felt compelled to leave his job to go into full time ministry. He began his journey as a freelance Bible Teacher.
He worked mostly among the Marathi speaking Christian communities. He wrote many Christian books. He edited song books. Wrote Christian evangelical tracts.
He was instrumental in helping me to give my life to Yeshua Messaih. He has been my mentor from my childhood. He never misguided me.
Mr Mirajkar went to be with the Lord at the age of 90 years. We met him in December 2019. He was loosing his memory. He couldn’t recognise many people.
When I visited him, his countenance brightened. He recognised me. He spoke with us for almost over one hour. He was still enthusiastic about serving the Lord.
He expressed his exasperation that lot of work is left to do and he is unable to complete. He vividly told me to continue to serve the Lord.
He confirmed that I have the gift of teaching. He told me to carry forward that skill.
On 28th August 2020, I got the news that Mr Mirajkar was admitted to a mission hospital. He was in a comatose condition. Doctors, tried their best. Mr Mirajkar regained his consciousness for short time.
Afterwards, he went into a deep sleep. His departure was very peaceful. He ascended into the glory. The Lord and his angels must have welcomed their champion.
According to our belief, Mr Mirajkar must be having a great fellowship with his Lord. What a great joy it is to have such godly people in our lives.
Adeus Mr Mirajkar. We shall surely meet in the kingdom of God. Halleluyah.
