Bringing Light to Others
STORIES FROM THE FIELD
Gurjeet* was raised in a family of faith and she decided to follow God at an early age. When she was older Gurjeet decided to attend a Women’s Transformation Centre. After graduation, she began to work alongside her father, but also prayed for new doors to be opened for her personally.
A neighbor had been suffering from severe abdominal pain for a long time. Gurjeet had an opportunity to spend time with her and pray for her healing. The woman was healed and set free from severe pain. Gurjeet began to share her story with many others.
The neighbour’s healing impacted their entire family. Gurjeet was very encouraged and continued to visit people and as a result, many came to know God and their lives were transformed.
Gurjeet experienced opposition from elders in the village and they tried to discourage people from attending meetings. However, the people felt strength and peace from God and remained firm in their beliefs. So Gurjeet started to hold regular gatherings and the number of people attending began to grow.
“My work has expanded to three more villages. It is amazing how God helped me and strengthened me to start gatherings in each village.”
Most of the people in her village are poor and illiterate. Without knowing how to read and write, they face lifelong struggles and their children are trapped in a life of poverty. To empower these poor village people, Gurjeet started literacy classes.
“I am happy that ten people have completed these classes and they now have hope for a better future. Currently 40 more people are enrolled in the classes. This will bring joy and light into their lives for the future.
The work here is flourishing despite challenges. I am weak, but He is at work and strengthens me every day to press on through all of life’s challenges. I hope to reach all of the nearby villages with the good news,” says Gurjeet.
Thank you for praying for Gurjeet; for her vision and service to God.
