God sent Prama and her Women’s Fellowship team to Sampat’s village at a moment of despair for Sampat’s family—his life was about to be extinguished.
Sampat, a model son, was everything his parents hoped he would be. At 23 years old, he worked hard as a shop -keeper to help his father support the family.
Descent to Death’s Door
One day, the family’s stability was threatened when severe knee pain debilitated Sampat and didn’t go away.
After seeing a doctor, Sampat’s condition did not change. In fact, it got worse. Slowly, over five years, Sampat suffered more and more, gradually becoming crippled. He sought medical help repeatedly with no results. He performed many sacrifices, hoping for divine help.
Eventually Sampat became bedridden. No longer a primary provider, Sampat became a burden for his family. His parents could not pay for the major medical treatment their son needed. Sampat could no longer eat and wasted away to a critical condition.
Hope Grows in Sampat’s Heart
But God had a hope and a future for Sampat. It was in these desperate days that Prama and herWomen’s Fellowship teamvisited Sampat’s village. Praying for the sick and offering encouragement from God’s Word to the downtrodden, the team of godly women left hope and life in their wake.
During this trip, Prama met Sampat. She listened with a heavy heart to the young man’s story. When she learned that he had been sick for five years, she knew the only hope for his healing was the power of Jesus. Prama comforted Sampat from the Scriptures, sharing with him about the hope in Jesus for physical and spiritual healing.
Before departing, Prama and her team prayed for God’s healing touch on Sampat.
