I Have Decided To Follow Jesus

by Kit Nongkhlaw

Music Makes Hearts Beat Contest Winner 

These are the last words of Mr.Nokseng, a Christian martyr from Garo Hills, Meghalaya, India.

Mr.Nokseng, his wife, and two children accepted Jesus as their Lord.

The village chief ordered them to renounce their faith but they did not.

The chief ordered them killed one by one, first his children, then his wife, and last Mr.Nokseng.

This amazing song has changed my life and Christians around the world.
