WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing a Geet and his family bereft of peace and harmony, the alcoholism of his father, God’s Word shared through Gospel for Asia (GFA)-supported pastor, the power of prayer and the abounding grace of Jesus.
Geet didn’t know what to do. He watched helplessly as his mother cowered before his abusive, intoxicated father, day after day.
“I would visit temples and pray to gods and goddesses,” Geet said, “but nothing changed in my life.”
Who could help his family when even his gods remained silent?
Teenager Troubled by Alcoholic Father
Both Geet’s parents held steady jobs, and the family faithfully worshipped their deities, yet they never found the happiness or prosperity they hoped for. Geet’s father, Kumal, slowly turned to alcohol as his source of comfort. Geet’s mother worked hard to support her four children, assuming more and more family responsibility as Kumal spiraled deeper into his alcohol addiction.
Over time, Kumal’s frequent arguments with his family intensified, and he even caused trouble for his neighbors. As a teenager, Geet felt helpless against his father’s alcoholism, so he isolated himself, aching with loneliness and longing for peace.
