WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing a story of violence against women, the story of Sanoja and her escape, and the blessing of a goat through GFA-supported Christmas distribution.
Sanoja could take no more. Throughout the past year, her husband had constantly berated, abused and tormented her—all for going to church. Even their young son, who was the result of much prayer and fasting, was not spared her husband’s anger. Finally, Sanoja had enough; she fled, taking her young son with her.
The Plight of a Mother
For nearly a decade of marriage, Sanoja and her husband remained childless—a matter of shame in their culture. However, Sanoja heard of Jesus through a believer who attended a church led by a GFA-supported pastor. With multiple doctor visits and rituals proving unsuccessful, Sanoja was willing to try anything, including praying to Jesus.
However, Sanoja’s husband vehemently opposed her attending the church, but Sanoja continued to pray and hope for a miracle. By the grace of God, Sanoja conceived and gave birth to a baby boy.
In spite of being blessed with a son, Sanoja’s husband continued to abuse Sanoja. On a regular basis, Sanoja endured both physical and verbal maltreatment. Sanoja’s husband even refused to provide for her and their son. This being the last straw, Sanoja grabbed her son and escaped to her mother’s home.
