LETTER FROM BR. J. C. PARAKKADAVIL INDIA. JULY 2009Dearly beloved,Greetings in His name. Thanks a lot for your prayer and supports and God may reward you. We all are doing fine by His grace. All our ministry go fine. I want to tell you about a new friend God gave me.MURALY MANOHAR. A NEW CHILD IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD Muraly is a hindu brother. I found him in front of my church in the city center on a Sunday.. It was the second Sunday of June. On that morning I was getting ready to go for the worship. Suddenly I felt the presence of God in the room. I started praying like never before. I remember the words, “ Lord please bring the person who need my help and tell me what should I do for that person.” I had no idea that why I prayed like that.. When I came to the church I found the stranger. At first I thought he was a beggar.He told me he came to attend the worship. In the worship I told the church to pray for him. After the the church I took him to the hotel and had the lunch. I asked him where you are going. He replied that he does not have any place to go. Then he told what is he. Muraly was born and brought up in a rich hindu family. Years before he went to Gulf countries and he became the owner of a flower shop. Unfortunately his partner deceived and he lost all and the debt was 9 lakhs rupees.. By this time his wife went away with the two children. Thus he returned to India. His mother and his brothers came against him for in his absence they joint together and shared his property influencing the mother. That’s how he became like this. He began to stay in hindu temples for food and shelter. Once somebody stole his bag containing his passport driving lisence and some money. In the time I saw him he was sleeping in the public bus stand with other beggars. Muraly told me, he has no place to go. I invited him in the love of Jesus to come and stay with me. I gave him food and for other needs. Some of my friends advised him to believe in Jesus. I decided that let him know the love of Jesus through my dealings. Muraly told me that for the last 3 and a half years his wife have never talk with him. He told: “if Jesus is working and my wife talk to me I will take Jesus as my personal saviour and Lord.” The miracle happened on the next satarday. His wife talk with him fo 20 minutes on phone. He kept the word. On Sunday he stood up and accepted Jesus as his personal saviour. The whole church rejoiced. Next day he got a job as a security guard. Jesus is great. He loves every one. Please pray for this new child of the living God.NEWS PAPER ON DESK.The Christian news paper JEEVA CARUNYAM was a dream project for us. God helped it to come out.
