Mr. P (40 years) and his wife K hail from a small village in Tamil Nadu. P makes his living by driving heavy vehicles. His occupation paved way to take drugs. Family life was disturbed and they lost peace. Adding to the situation, they do not have a child. One of I.B.L. Patashala students shared with them about the love of the True God. He also gave booklets and gospel of John to read. The Word of God started to work in their hearts. The family is now at peace and they have started a Home Fellowship in their house.
Kindly uphold them in your prayers so that they might have a child and their faith might be strengthened in the Lord.
For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. (Hebrews 4:12)
