Bedridden Man Walks Again
WILLS POINT, TX — Gospel for Asia (GFA) — Discussing the impact of women missionaries in the lives of many suffering, and the hope that and healing that only Jesus can provide.
God sent Prama and her Gospel for Asia Women’s Fellowship team to Sampat’s village at a moment of despair for Sampat’s family — his life was about to be extinguished.
Sampat, a model son, was everything his parents hoped he would be. At 23 years old, he worked hard as a shop -keeper to help his father support the family.
Sampat’s job kept food on the table and clothes on his siblings’ backs. His family depended on him. His father alone could not meet the family’s needs in such a rustic setting.
Descent to Death’s Door
One day, the family’s stability was threatened when severe knee pain debilitated Sampat and didn’t go away.
After seeing a doctor, Sampat’s condition did not change. In fact, it got worse. Slowly, over five years, Sampat suffered more and more, gradually becoming crippled. He sought medical help repeatedly with no results. He performed many sacrifices, hoping for divine help.
Eventually Sampat became bedridden. No longer a primary provider, Sampat became a burden for his family. His parents could not pay for the major medical treatment their son needed. Sampat could no longer eat and wasted away to a critical condition.
