When a Baby Couldn’t Bring Lasting Joy

Women often find Christlike love, acceptance and concern through Women's Fellowship.

Two problems robbed Gunita of happiness: For 14 years, she hadn’t been able to have a baby, and for many of those years, she also suffered from constant bleeding that weakened her body.

Gunita started worshiping idols zealously and trying out witch doctors’ remedies. After several months, she gave birth to a daughter. She finally felt happy—for a time.

Gunita’s other problem, her bleeding, didn’t stop. In fact, taking care of a newborn only worsened it. Because the witch doctors no longer had solutions for Gunita, she sought the help of medical doctors. They couldn’t determine the cause of her illness either. A shade of sadness and frustration settled on Gunita and her family.

Woman Laughs at Bold Statement

One day, Gunita met Ruchi, who told Gunita about her church’s Women’s Fellowship group. Ruchi encouraged Gunita to come to the meetings and made a bold claim: Jesus could heal her.

Gunita laughed to herself. Neither powerful witch doctors nor experienced medical doctors had been able to figure out why she was sick. How could the prayers of a few simple women help her?

Despite her skepticism, Gunita listened to Ruchi as the woman assured her that her sickness was no difficulty to the God who raises the dead to life.

Woman Finds Acceptance, Healing Through Women’s Fellowship

Willing to see if this God could actually heal her, Gunita went to the Women’s Fellowship meeting one Sunday. Gunita observed the women carefully as she sat among them, watching all they did.

When the women learned about her sickness, they began praying fervently for her to be healed. Gunita, touched by their compassion, started to attend the Women’s Fellowship meetings regularly.

As Gunita attended the meetings over the next few weeks, she noticed her health gradually improving, and within a month, her body was completely healed! Gunita had no doubt who had performed this miracle. She chose to walk with Jesus, and soon, her family joined her in worshiping the Lord.

The Lord used the boldness and compassion of one woman and the love, acceptance and kindness of a Women’s Fellowship group to show Gunita how much He loved her. Would you please pray for the Lord to use Women’s Fellowship groups to help more women like Gunita?

Please pray for:

  • Women to have the boldness and compassion to reach out to others, as Ruchi did.
  • Women’s Fellowships to continue welcoming newcomers in the love of Christ.
  • God to fill more women who don’t know Him with faith to trust in Him and in His power to heal, restore and transform their lives.
  • Gunita and her family to grow closer to Christ.

    I SUPPORTED SANGITA TUDU WITH A WOMEN’S FELLOWSHIP GROUP. I THINK ITS ONE OF THE BEST WAY TO REACH UNSAVED AND LONELY WOMEN WHO NEED THE SAVING GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. WOMEN ARE BASICALLY ABUSED BY THEIR HUSBANDS AND MANY TIMES ABANDONED, AND TREATED AS SECOND-RATE. I DON’T KNOW OF A BETTER ARM OF GFA THAN THESE LADIES. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!
