Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord, nor of me his prisoner, but share in suffering for the gospel by the power of God, 2 Timothy 1:8″
I am David the servant of my heavenly father. I have two brothers. My father is a small pastor in my small village. When I was 12 years i was studying at a government hostel. During that time I suffered with fever. While I was suffering with fever my knees swelled. I wasn’t aware of what happen to me, because I was too young and still only in the 7th standard. I didn’t think about what the consequences were while this was going on. After 3 years my health condition had gradually decreased. My symptoms were that I was unable to walk a small distance. When I walked even 10 feet, I breathed with difficulty. When I completed 10th standard, this problem became very serious.
Immediately my parents took me to the hospital. The doctors examined me and concluded “your sons heart has two valves blocked”. My parents asked the doctor ” how did it happen?”. They said to my parents, when your son was in the 7th standard he attacked with “Rheumatic heart fever” and due to this fever his heart valves blocked. He must need to open His valves otherwise he would be died. This situation happened in the year 1994. Doctors told to my parents that they should arrange money immediately. But they didn’t because we were very poor financially during that time. My only hope was Jesus..because He is the God who saves us from every trouble. “Jesus looked at them and said, “With man it is impossible, but not with God. For all things are possible with God.”
Yes this is true ! Through prayer and faith in Jesus Christ all things are possible. On the 20th of January 1995 during night we prayed along with my family from 8 p.m to 6 a.m. Yes He heard our prayers. The next morning “Rotary club” Nidadavole came forward to sponsor the operation. What power does prayer have dear friends?
The operation was done in January 23 , 1995. It was a success , but Satan hit me again. My health condition was good up to 1997 but again my condition was damaged. The same problem manifested again. I was unable to walk and breath. Some times I unable to sleep at nights. Sitting in the bed until day, because If I sleep I couldn’t breath. This was the worse situation I have faced. I thought many times and prayed..Oh I can’t say how much ! God doesn’t give this kind of problem even to my worst enemies. In the same year we went to another hospital that “CHRISTIAN MEDICAL COLLEGE HOSPITAL, VELLORE” . We met Dr. Edvin Ravi kumar, who was very prayerful. He examined and told me that my both my heart valves were totally damaged and that if I didn’t immediately replace them I will be die. How would you feel friend? if you get this news from the doctors, how do you feel?. What would you do? Again my only hope was prayer and faith in Jesus Christ.
“But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed..Isaiah 53;5”
Yes He is !…They gave me the estimated cost of the operation. The estimation for operation was Rs. 2,20,000/- ($ 5,500 nearly). That was very large according to my budget. This time we were unable to arrange this. We tried again with the powerful weapon that we have (prayer). We prayed along with my family the whole night. But doctor Ravi kumar told to my father that they don’t give a guarantee for this operation, because we were very late for this operation. For this reason my valves totally damaged and blood was coming out the side of the valves. BUT we placed our hope in Jesus and so we prayed for the money.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. phil 4:6″
Yes He heard us again ! Because Surely the arm of the lord is not too short to save nor his ear too dull to hear . Isaiah 59:1”
Yes the word of God is never fails ! He heard my prayers again. You know the Indian government gave more than ($3,000). This is the first time in the history of the Indian government that this has happened. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah: “He took our illnesses and bore our diseases.” Yes this is true ! He took every illness in my heart and every disease, that I had. The operation was done in the year 1998 September 26. Here you can hear a great trouble again from the devil. During the operation, my heart stopped. My father was praying out side of the operation theater. While he was praying he was feeling that my soul was roaming around him. Immediately He prayed with tears, Oh! Jesus you promised me , that you will save ,my son from this dangerous disease, your promise never fails father “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. He prayed using this verse. My Father testified that after completing the prayer, he didn’t see my soul. Yes our heavenly father never takes back his promise. The operation was a success. After the operation doctors came and said to my father, “ Oh! Samuel you are very lucky “..He asked them, why sir? your son died in the middle of the operation, his heart beat stopped. We stopped the operation, we didn’t know what happened, and then it started beating. WoW! …What a mighty God, we have. The second time he saved me for His work. Yes. Now I am in good health. Doing his ministry towards children and gospel since 2006.
After many years in 2005 my heavenly father persuaded me through the bible verses to do his work according to the word of God” What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead. But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. James 2:14-20… these powerful verses justified me to do according to the word of God. So that I have established “Good news English medium School” for the kids who are helpless, orphans and poor. We are giving free education, clothes and books to them. But I am un able to feed and give them shelter. My vision is to make a shelter for them and feed them. I am alone and can’t do this, but through prayer everything possible. Recently we are going to construct a shelter for the orphans. We needed the material for that. I am doing Gospel ministry. In many areas I am going and preaching the word of God and sharing my testimony with them and catching many souls in to Jesus. Definitely we will be rewarded in the kingdom of God. please keep on praying.
“ I am for Christ , not for myself. If any of you feel like i am for Christ, please come with me and do His ministry along with me. We will be rewarded in the kingdom of God..Amen! Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. “ 1 Corinthians 15:58
If you are along with me we can do anything for Christ. Prayerful and faithful persons Please pray for my health and my Gospel and Children ministry. May God bless you.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
My hope is through my testimony at least some people may turn to Jesus Christ. May fulfill my hope. Amen!
Your loving brother
