I was born into an idol worshiping family. Our village is in a tribal area. In one way it is a drought area, so the people suffer for drinking water. In such cases, the people pray for the water goddess “Gangamma” to give heavy rains. Before I became a Christian my name was Ganga Rao. I never cared for Jesus. I hated His birth as an illegal birth to an unmarried girl. I used to persecute the Christians for their disturbing sound system in their meetings.
One day I received a letter from my sister. She witnessed that the Lord Jesus healed her son on his death bed. Her son suffered from pain in his stomach for many days. They spent much money for medical treatment, but the doctors discharged him. She brought him home and the pastor living next door came and prayed for the boy. She also prayed fervently for her son. The next day she called the pastor over to pray for him and committed her son for the Lord's service if He would spare him. Now, because of this miracle, my sister wrote me this letter to follow Jesus the Savior of this world.
Because of the strong witness of my sister, I wanted to think over the matter. I brought over the local pastor and requested him to tell me the difference between Indian gods and Jesus. After some days and after knowing I am a sinner, I accepted the Lord Jesus as my Savior. Until that time I used to sell vegetables in the village on my bicycle. I gave that up and became a full time servant of Jesus. I started my preaching in my village. In the beginning I suffered persecutions from my villagers, but now I am so blessed that slowly the members of my congregation are increasing.
I need a PA system and also one prayer shed. Please pray for me. Once I persecuted the Christians but now my Jesus made me a good Christian. I have led 143 souls to know Jesus. Praise the Lord.
