Heal the Nations has been working for several
years to develop a community health program in India. James Biswa and
his wife, Martha, a registered
nurse are providing health services to two villages, Chenga Busty and
Kraprail. These villages are near Darjeeling, India, and are six miles
from the Nepal
Chenga Busty villagers are subsistance farmers
and day laborers. Residents of Kraprail had mostly been employed by a tea
factory, however it closed down over a year ago. Unemployment is rampant,
and individuals have none of the social benefits available in America. Although
there had been no Christians in these areas, they are learning about Christ
from James, who has dedicated his life to service as a result of his own
personal healing and salvation. James was sick for a month with fever, cough
and chest pain before he came to the "end of his rope." In his
own words, this is what happened next:
One night I felt tired and sad and began slowly
to cry. Tears came by themselves on my cheek. My eyes were closed. Suddenly,
something happened in my heart. I started to pray "Jesus Christ, you
are the living God. I request you, Lord, give me life or death in this night
because my wife and children cannot carry my heavy load." I cried slowly
for a long time. I don't know when I slept. The next day when I opened my
eyes I felt my whole body fly as a bird. I was healed of my suffering. This
was a miracle for me. I said, "Thank you, Jesus!" I cried and
confessed, "He is my Lord."
You can help James serve these villages in India.
We need immediate financial support for James, Martha and the health program.
