If anyone were to ask Kalapi if God really answers prayer, this grateful man would most likely give a resounding, “Yes!” and then share his story of how God healed his throat.
For some time, Kalapi suffered from a swollen throat. It wasn’t swollen in the sense that he had a sore throat, signifying the onset of a cold or the flu. No, Kalapi’s throat was painfully swollen to the point that it was visibly obvious to those around him.
As the swelling increased, Kalapi visited the doctor. He tried taking medicine the doctor prescribed, but it didn’t decrease the swelling or take away the pain. Kalapi turned to rituals and sacrifices common in his religious practice. Still, Kalapi continued to wrestle with the painful condition of his throat. He became very discouraged when it seemed like nothing would cure him.
One More Option
One day,GFA-supported pastorPallab and some of the believers he discipled visited Kalapi’s village to help the community understand how much God loves them. Kalapi invited them into his home and listened to the information they shared.
When the believers finished speaking, Kalapi told them about his illness and his efforts to find relief from the debilitating pain. He asked Pastor Pallab to pray for him, hoping maybe the God they spoke of could heal him. Pastor Pallab and his team gladly prayed for Kalapi and promised to continue lifting him up in prayer.
