WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing Kripal and his family, the deep poverty, illness, grief and despair, and the help and hope brought by Gospel for Asia pastor and the gift of goats through Gospel for Asia’s Gift Catalog.
Water dripped through the roof made of tiles and grass and landed in puddles around four children and the frail body of Kripal’s wife, Bani. A strange sickness held her life in its grip and kept her from eating, slowly stealing her strength until she couldn’t even walk properly. Doctors and those who practiced traditional healing ceremonies failed to cure Bani, but that didn’t stop them from demanding payment.
In addition to Bani’s health problems, the family was distressed by another faceless trouble: During the night, they heard strange noises on their roof. It worried them and interrupted their sleep.
Gradually, Kripal’s family slipped into poverty, grief and despair.
Hope Comes by Word of Mouth
Kripal’s grief and problems were evident, and a family of believers in his village watched his struggles. They sympathized with his poverty and sorrowful plight, and they shared his story with their pastor, Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor Taranga, and asked him to visit Kripal.
