Hailing from the city of Vellore in Tamil Nadu in

After receiving his theological training in India

the Grace Foster Home. Rev. Paulraj is engaged in
extensive evangelism with his coworkers in outlying
villages (where Tamil is spoken) and amongst doctors
and medical students at a nearby hospital and
college (where English is spoken).
