On March 3, we had a blessed Worship service after which we were strengthened by the Lord to host a blessed and fruitful medical camp. It was something we had been praying for a while now and our Lord brought it to pass at the right time! A believer-doctor had expressed his willingness and interest to help us with the event, rendering his service and with the necessary medical supplies for the camp - God bless him. It was a great opportunity to connect with the locals who had come, and to plant the seeds of Gospel in their hearts. You can see a few photographs from the camp attached.
At the close of the camp, I had the joy of meeting a Hindu lady by the name of Nisha – I shared the Gospel with her and she was willing to listen. She decided to visit us again to hear more about Jesus and His great, life-giving love.
Since then, it was my earnest prayer that Nisha may come to know Jesus as her savior and God.
March 10 marked my 50 years in the Lord, after I had my re-birth in Christ in 1968. Having left my home and family where I was brought up as a Hindu, at the age of 18, He has been more than faithful and has been there with me every step of my Christian journey. The Lord called me from darkness into his marvelous light and I am thankful to Him that He has been using me to spread the love and grace that came seeking me while I was a sinner, to those who are lost. As a token of my gratitude and thanks-giving, I had a great desire to lead a soul to the Lord on this very special day in my life. The Lord indeed granted me my desire, as on this auspicious day, Nisha called me while I was on my way to a place called Thalayar. Although I was not very well physically, my spirit constrained me to go. Her call was indeed a confirmation to me that she was a prepared soul, and that the Lord had chosen me to be a soul-winner! With this divine confidence the Lord gave me, it was easy for me to lead her and I presented her to the Lord. I met her, and spent some time with her sharing the Good News of the Gospel, and in prayer. Tears rolling down her cheeks, Nisha accepted the Lord – Praise God! Needless to say, this was the best gift I could ask for on my Christian birthday, and my heart wept with joy!
Nisha is broken-hearted in terms of her family life, as her husband who is a devoted Hindu priest (Pujari, as they are called), gives her a very hard time. She is not at all happy in her family life. We have given her hope in Jesus, and offered her solace in the fact that Jesus is able to change her situation altogether.
Please join with me in bringing Nisha to the Lord so she can grow in her faith and stand faithful to the Lord. May the change in her bring about a change in her husband as well. Also, please remember the many who attended the medical camp so that they may think of the divine love which prompted us to reach out to them in that manner, which can in turn lead them back to us to us to learn about the loving savior that Jesus is!
