When her son became sick, Anushka took him to the doctor and then praised the Lord when he recovered. When her boy fell ill again, this time with a more daunting prognosis, the mother’s faith was tested. Could God—would God—heal her son again?
Plagued by Sickness
It almost seemed easy when Fajar, the younger of Anushka’s two sons, became sick initially. Anushka took him to the hospital; the doctor prescribed medicine; and the medicine began working immediately. Fajar was soon healthy and back in his second-grade class at school.
Anushka was the only believer in her household, but she made sure to praise God for her son’s quick healing.
Not long after that, however, Fajar grew sick again. It was clear this sickness was more serious as the boy began to lose strength. Anushka took Fajar to the same hospital, hoping another round of medicine would cure her son. After examination, the doctors reported Fajar suffered from jaundice as well as an additional health problem: The 8-year-old boy had a heart condition.
Anushka was shaken by the news. As the only believer in her family, she could not turn to her husband, her mother or either of her sons for encouragement to put her hope and trust in God during this difficult situation. Anushka decided to turn to her church, led by GFA-supported pastor Aashish, for help.
