Dr. Samuel M. Ebenezer


Dr. E. Samuel Mohanraj is Bay Shore Assembly of God’s Director of Intercultural Minstries. Dr. E. Samuel Mohanraj, the Founder and President of Showers of Blessing Ministries, is a native of Madurai in Tamil Nadu, India and the eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Ebenezer. As he was unable to walk at the age of one, his parents took him to a gospel meeting held in Madurai by the Evangelist. T.L. Osborn. There they prayed for him with a heavy burden and by the end of the meeting, the lad who could not even walk, started running! The one who ran towards his parents that day decades ago, is today running throughout the world as a servant of God, sharing the gospel and bringing down God’s blessings to countless people.

He is blessed with wife Elizabeth, son Mervyn and daughter Sharon. Sadly enough, Sharon went to be with Lord in November 2006 at the age of 16. Both he and his wife were once famous sportspersons. Elizabeth represented India in athletics at the international level and won medals too.

Today both of them are enthusiastically running the “Gospel-Race” for the Glory of God. All praise and honor and glory, goes to God and Him alone. As David said, “The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me, and His word was on my tongue” (2 Samuel 23:2). In the same way, God is using Samuel and the proof is in the “Showers of Blessing” that God is pouring out through his ministry.
