WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing Taizeen and his family, his paralyzed widowed mother, the poverty and hunger, and the Gospel for Asia (GFA) Bridge of Hope staff that brought hope in the midst of their struggle.
The small boy realized something was wrong—his father was very sick and wasn’t getting any better. Suddenly, he died.
The boy’s widowed mother wept as loneliness and devastation washed over her. With her husband’s death, an awful fear pressed in on her. The family was already poor. How would she find work? How would her boys have enough to eat? How would they survive? She didn’t know.
The boy watched as discouragement conquered his mother’s heart.
Then trauma struck again.
Paralysis Overtakes Boy’s Mother
The single mother lost feeling in her body—she was paralyzed. She kept weeping.
The little boy, Taizeen, and his brother looked on as his grandparents took his mother to hospitals, and she underwent treatment. Nothing helped her. For two years, Taizeen’s mother couldn’t move; his grandparents strained to put meager meals on the table; and he and his brother went hungry.
If you were to look into the homes in Taizeen’s town, you’d likely find many other boys and girls going hungry, many other sick parents, and even the elderly doing manual labor jobs, their worn bodies motivated by hunger. Taizeen was just one of the needy.
