Jesus Did What The Idols Couldn’t: How Ruth Had A Baby After 17 Years
Dec 28, 2020 1471
Ruth is from the village of Surayapallem, India, and was born and brought up in a Hindu family. She had visited many idol temples and did many things and rituals in order to get children. Eventually she gave up hope but then she heard about Jesus.
Ruth married when she was 13 years old. But when she was 30 she still had no children. Even then she had still been going here and there to do idol worships in order to get children. She had spent so much money going to hospitals and meeting various doctors. But even then she did not have any children.
At last she was fed up and stopped going here and there and she remained at home hopeless. She decided and thought that she could not conceive children in her life. So she lost all hope and she worried a lot and day-by-day she did not know what to do.
One day I went to her village with my team to preach the Holy Gospel and we conducted two days of Gospel Meetings and preached the Word of God. Ruth came to the two days of meetings and the message touched her heart and she got faith. She decided that Jesus was the only way for her to get a child in her life. So she put her whole faith in Jesus and came to me to ask me to pray for her.
She does not know how to read or write but she has been watching the GNU TV Programme daily.
She shared with me about her whole life and what she did in the past. I told her to watch the weekly GNU TV Programme and keep faith in Jesus and listen to the Word of God. She did not have any education and does not know how to read or write but she has been watching the GNU TV Programme daily.
She has kept so much faith in Jesus. So after one year she conceived a child and she is so happy in Christ Jesus. Many of the villagers and relatives insulted her in many ways but she kept her faith in Jesus and got a baby in her life. She and her husband are very happy and she accepted Jesus fully in her life. She prays daily and watches the GNU TV Programme each week.
In the past I cried and worried a lot to get a child in my life. And I went to various Hindu temples to worship. But it was no use. It is only Jesus in whom I kept whole my faith and trusted in him to get a child. So it is the Word of God that touched my heart and moved me to accept Jesus into my life. I am so thankful to Jesus for giving me a child within one year. Thanks to Jesus.
