Sorcerer in India turned to Christ and lives for Him

Picture above: Venkatesan receives Bibles for further distribution.

Mr. Venkatesan was born as a Hindu Dalit (Dalit means depressed class) man in India. His father was practicing black magics. He was worshipping Hindu idols and witch-crafts and also helping his father's sorcery practices. But his mother was a prayerful woman. She was regularly attending Christian prayer meetings and try to teach her family about the salvation of Jesus Christ. But they never believed Jesus Christ.

Mr. Venkatesan's character was wantonness and he was grown as a rouge person. For anything he always disagreement with others and became as a quarrelsome person. So everybody hate him.

On his 32 years of age, when he was crossing a road by his bicycle, he was hit by a truck and fall at a distance with serious injuries. The truck, which hit him did not stop, but ran away. His blood was continuously flowing from his body and about half an hour nobody took him from the road. Everybody thought he is dead. Finally police came and found there is life in his body and took him to the hospital. Several days he was on comma stage.

When he was under comma stage, his mother stood beside him with prayers. The members of the Gospel to Asia and Middle East Nations (gos2amen), an associate ministries of Bibles for Mideast which she was attending regularly conducted a fasting prayer for Venkatesan and prayed for him.

While on fasting prayer was going on, Venkatesan saw Jesus Christ came down from heaven with thousands of angels and touched him with His nailed hands. Jesus Christ told him, "I love you my child; You are always my child; I will never leave you alone and my love will never end. Be healed".

Venkatesan opened his eyes. He saw his mother and the members of the prayer team were kneeling down and praying with tears beside his bed. He called his mother. His mother was surprised and praised the Lord at once he called her. Doctors rushed beside him and he said them his experience. They said it is a miracle. He also said them that he would live for Jesus Christ.

After that he got married. Now he is having a boy child. With family they are doing Lord's work with gos2amen.

By his prayers and the way of life, his father also turned to Christ before death.
