Rev. Isaac Veejay, Resident Pastor, Light of the World Christian Ministries International, Dutchess Assembly
"Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, And for his wonderful works to the children of men! And let them sacrifice the sacrifices of thanksgiving, And declare his works with rejoicing"
At age 28, Isaac Veejay was on top of the world, but he didn't know that by age 36 he would be a washed-up, beaten down failure. Then something special happened to him. Our Lord Jesus Christ found Isaac and he accepted the LORD in November of 2000. This was the beginning of a changed life. The life of Isaac Veejay was shaped and molded at The Light of the World Christian Ministries
International located at 3255 Laconia Avenue in the Bronx, New York. As a young Christian, Brother Veejay was faithful and dedicated, and never turned down any assignment that was given to him. He was a humble and gifted child of God whose ultimate desire was to do the will of God. Little did he know that the road was not going to be a smooth ride, but he also understood and embraced the Divine Providence of God and His faithfulness to keep His own.
