“Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
“I am Jagesh, 35 years old. I have a wife and one son named Taizeen, 4. … In the month of December 2012, Taizeen was affected with a sickness and was bedridden. Since we believed in the healing power of the gods and goddesses, we first took my son to temples. But even after visiting many temples, there was no improvement in my son.
“In the month of January 2013, we took him to a hospital, and it was diagnosed that my son was affected with leukemia. We learned from the doctors that the treatment for my son would cost more money than we could afford because we are poor.
“There is a woman named Pavitra working in the same hospital where my son was admitted; she happened to be a Christian. She came to know about our condition and shared about Jesus as the only healer. She also asked us to listen to a Gospel for Asia (GFA) Radio program broadcast in our language.
“One morning in January, I turned my radio to the station and listened to the GFA Radio program, which was being broadcasted. I called my wife and son to listen to the message. At the end of the message, while the producer was praying for the sick, my wife and my son joined along with him. I developed a belief that surely Jesus would heal my son, so I made a phone call to the number I received through the radio. As I called, the person in charge of GFA Radio follow-up received my call, and I shared our situation with him over the phone and requested him to pray for my son.
“Gradually, there was a change in my son’s health, and as an answer to prayers, God miraculously healed my son. Within a few weeks of time, he started to walk, play with his friends and eat food. Again, we took him to the hospital for a checkup, and he was found cancer-free after the diagnosis. We praised God for that, and we [decided to follow] Jesus. Daily, we are praying to God, and this is our desire: that we will serve the Lord Jesus. Now we are attending a church nearby.
“Please pray for my son continuously, and also pray for our family.”
