Sam and Prema Sunder



Kids for the Kingdom India Branch Office Directors

Two years after Samuel Sunder Raj became a Christian he decided to leave his banking job and begin a career in ministry. “My family was very staunch Hindu and deeply opposed me going to Bible College. My parents even threatened to commit suicide if I left my good paying job at the bank.”  Later, while attending Theology of South India Biblical Seminary, Sam met his future wife Prema. Prema was born in Nazareth, India. Her family had Christian roots dating back several generations. “I learned a lot about the Christian life from my mom,” says Prema. Early in their marriage Sam and Prema Sunder Raj served on the staff of Youth for Christ. They currently attend the Methodist Church of South India and serve fulltime with Kids for the Kingdom. The Sunders speak several languages including Tamil, Telegu, Malayalam, and English. Sam and Prema are a strong team. Sam is a gifted speaker and boldly pronounces the Gospel – especially to children.  Prema also has a heart for children, is a gifted Bible teacher, and writes a daily internet devotion in Tamal.
