A dilemma lay before Rajvi and her husband, Parash: either sell their cows — a significant part of their livelihood—or endure sicknesses without medicine. Ultimately, Rajvi and Parash sold their cows, but the consequences of that decision would haunt them for years to come.
A Family in Need
Rajvi and Parash lived as farmers along with their four young children in a rural Asian village. After illness forced them to sell their cows—a primary source of money for farmers like them across Asia—just to afford medical care, their income suffered. Rajvi and Parash took up any labor jobs they could find in tandem with farming. Yet still, the money the couple earned couldn’t feed the entire family. Each passing day, poverty tightened its grip around the family.
GFA-supported pastor Mairava, serving in the local village, knew of Rajvi and Parash’s struggles. The family was part of his church, having attended services for quite some time. But Pastor Mairava didn’t know how he could help them.
A Life-Changing Gift
After much prayer, the Lord provided Pastor Mairava with a solution for Rajvi and Parash’s struggles. Through a GFA-sponsored gift distribution, Rajvi and Parash received a cow!
