Putt. P-putt! Whiroooo… hiss! The recently purchased four-wheeler was supposed to take Himmat and his companions up a hazardous road to a nearby village to sell clothes. Instead, it sputtered to a grinding halt on its own accord and then began rolling backwards. Himmat and the two men with him yelled desperately for assistance, but they could only sit helplessly as their vehicle rolled down the steep road toward a ditch. If the vehicle swerved to the opposite side, they would smash into a mountain. Neither option was ideal. Back to the Beginning Himmat grew up in a home that practiced the local religion. If he had not already met GFA-supported pastor Kundan when his vehicle careened down the mountainside, Himmat may have called out to the deities of his local tradition, hoping desperately that somehow, someone would intervene. However, he had heard Pastor Kundan describe the Good News of a loving God who wants a personal relationship with His people. When Himmat heard about this God, he was overcome with a sense of peace in his heart and decided to attend the pastor’s church to get more information. Himmat, his wife and their two sons continued to attend the church regularly and learn more about Jesus. They even participated in some of the church activities. The more he learned about God, the more Himmat saw God’s blessing in his life. He began to see increased profits fromselling clothesand was able to purchase a four-wheeler, which would help continue to grow his business.
