Captain A M Samuel

Pastor(Captian) A M Samuel (1939 – May 15, 2012) is the founder president of the Maranatha Ministries International. This ministry had its humble origin in the early 1970’s in a small village called Garhi, which is close to the town of Udhampur, in the Jammu and Kashmir state, and now by the grace of God it has spread to different parts of the globe.

Maranatha Ministries International is an umbrella Organization, working towards the perfection of the Body of Christ all over the world. We are known in India as the North Western Region of the Indian Pentecostal Church of God. Our International headquarters is based in Jammu Tawi, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir, India.

A word from Pastor Finney-(Son)
We are very grateful for your prayers and support. It was a great privilege for us to have the servant of God as our father. Emotionally, it is hard to realize that physically he is not here with us now. We thank God, for He will do the best for us.

For many days, Pastor Samuel was very weak. We had asked him to take rest but he would not. He was a real battle hardened soldier. He preached his last sermon on Sunday at Allapuzha, Kerala, India where he preached laying down in a bed on the stage. He came to Thrissur for the last meeting of this trip. But before the meetings could start, God called him home, peacefully. It was a shock, because he had never prepared us for a peaceful end. My mother, sister and her son were there on his bed side. I was away in Nepal with my family engaged in the ministry, I had asked him if he could permit me to come and see him once, but he said, “Do not leave the battlefield”, his last words to me was to press on, we have to pay the price for the truth. I wanted to be there for the funeral but our father had taught us some principles – if any one of us dies, the other will not quit the field to pay the last respects. When the battle is on, there is no time for that. According to his desire, his body has been laid to rest in Thrissur, Kerala, India in a normal grave with no markings.

Please continue to pray for the big worldwide family he has left behind. He was a true disciple to the core. Many people said many things about him, but we saw and knew him. That is the reason that we, as a family, are following his footsteps. He laid a good foundation with the stones and rocks others threw at him.

He has not left a house or a bank balance for us – just the Word. He was a pilgrim, pray that we may follow the example he has set before us. He has not appointed anyone to be his successor. He said, “Let God raise the successor”. Pray that God’s will be done.

Home Going
On May 15, God called his servant – Captain A M Samuel, from his earthly training ground to the heavenly throne reserved for the over comers.

Matthew 25:23 (KJV)
His Lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy Lord. To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. At this moment, his body is being returned to the earth in Thrissur, Kerala, India – where he had been faithfully ministering uptil the end.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 (KJV)
Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Cherishing his memory – his wife, son and daughter, with his grandchildren and a host of dedicated servants of God, their flocks and people whom the Lord gave the blessed opportunity to encounter an apostle in their lives.
