WILLS POINT, TX – Discover the transformative power of prayer as Lankesh’s life takes a profound turn from despair to deliverance through faith.
Lankesh had a secure job as a bus conductor in the city.
He was responsible for the safe transportation of hundreds of Sri Lankans every day. With the income from his job, Lankesh helped support his mother and sister at home.
Every weekend, Lankesh would faithfully come home to visit his mother and sister, and just as faithfully, every weekend his mother, Yachana, would share with him about Jesus. However, Lankesh was convinced of his traditional religious beliefs, and he had no interest in giving them up. When his mother would talk about Jesus, Lankesh would get angry and leave the house, usually to go drinking with his friends.
Alchohol Takes Over a Life
Then suddenly, Lankesh stopped making his weekend visits. His alcohol habit had become so excessive that he even discontinued his own religious activities, which he had once valued so highly.
To make matters worse, Lankesh was no longer providing money for the family. Yachana was already struggling financially, and she was devastated by her son’s disappearance. Her heart ached as she wondered where her boy could be. So she did the only thing she could think of: She prayed.
