How Suvarthama Went From a Place of Desperation to a Place of Joy

This is the testimony and life story of Suvarthama, a woman from the village of Bhusana Nagar, India.
Suvarthama was born and brought up in a tribal family in one of the far away remote villages. Growing up, she lived on the banks of the river with her parents. Her parents’ main occupation was catching rats, snakes and wild animals. So they would go around the paddy fields hunting the wild animals to eat and survive.
As Suvarthama grew up she came to know that she did not want the life that her parents had. So she left and went to the village of Bhusana Nagar as a beggar. She stayed in that village for a few months, going from house to house and cleaning vessels and washing clothes.
Then, in that village, one young man came forward to marry her. So after her marriage she left work and started staying inside the house. During this time she had two sons.
After a few years her husband left and went away from her and she was left with her two sons. Then she did not know what to do.
She got so much faith and courage by hearing the powerful Word of God.
One day I went to that village to conduct a Gospel meeting. She came and attended the Gospel meeting and heard about Jesus and accepted Jesus into her life. In her life she had never, ever heard of Jesus. So it was the first time that she heard about Jesus and she got so much faith and courage by hearing the powerful Word of God.
So she came to me and shared with me everything that had happened to her. I prayed for her life and sons and told her to watch the GNU TV Programme. So she felt so happy and she got back her old life washing vessels and clothes in the houses. Now in her old age she is fine and her sons are married and they are all fine by the grace of God.
It is Jesus and the Holy Gospel that changed my life and gave me new life. My sons and I were left in the village years ago. But because of Jesus we all are safe and fine and happy in Christ Jesus. I give thanks to Jesus for saving my life.
