Ayodhya Rao Bai
Ayodhya Rao Bai is a remote elder at Grace Life Church in Vizag. Rao Bai was born into a Hindu family and exposed to RSS ideologies at a very young age. This led him to despise Jesus Christ and Christians. At 40, the LORD redeemed him from the kingdom of darkness and transferred him to His kingdom. He loves the gospel and delights in God’s sovereign grace.
After finishing his diploma, he worked as a pipe and structural fabricator. His work took him to Saudi Arabia, Malaysia, Kuwait, the Emirates, Azerbaijan, and the USA. He relocated to Canada with his family in 2010. Later he obtained a 4-year diploma as a journeyman steamfitter.
Verse-by-verse preaching and teaching immensely impacted his soul. The Lord used the Bai family as an instrument in launching Grace Life Church in Vizag. Later, he took two years off from work and relocated to India to pursue training under Pastor Daniel Surya Avula. He is trained in systematic theology and preaching. He loves God’s people.
He lives in Edmonton, Canada, with his wife, Sri Laxmi, and two beautiful daughters, Likhitha Srija, and Hasini Srija.
