When Khumraj’s father died, his mother moved in with them, which created more stress, especially when she suddenly became sick. They had no money to treat her. They consulted witch doctors, but it only made matters worse. He borrowed money from friends, traveling to India to get a job to repay them. By then, Khumraj started drinking. He recalls, “I was an emotional wreck and lost the money that I hoped to save for treating my mother.”
...But He Found Hope
When he returned home, everyone was normal, happy, and healthy. His wife told him that while he was away, they met a pastor from a local church. He prayed for the mother. He invited them to church and gave them Project Philip Bible study booklets.
Khumraj recalls, “I was both angry and happy. Angry that they embraced Christianity. And happy to see my mother well.” Soon, Khumraj’s wife introduced him to the pastor, who then shared the Gospel with him. He says, “I could not help but receive Jesus into my life. I felt like a new person.”
The whole family now attends church together. He says, “I want to help others who are struggling in life.”
Today, Khumraj and his wife both completed Church Planter Training and are passionate about their faith in Christ. They are determined to make a difference in the lives of the people in their community.
