Church planter in-training brings 17 to Christ in India

Posted: 30 October, 2007


India (MNI) ― Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Mission India has an encouraging report about a man who is benefiting from their ministry in rural India.

Ramtubai worshipped the sun, trees, snakes, rocks, and the dead spirits of his ancestors. He feared that if he didn't worship diligently, the spirits would harm his family.

One day Ramtubai's daughter Sharmila fell ill. The doctors couldn't help her. so Ramtubai took Sharmila to five different witch doctors, pleading for help. But nothing worked.

An evangelist named Ladubai often came to Ramtubai's village to share the Gospel. Ramtubai begged him to pray for his ailing daughter. Ladubai prayed over Sharmila all evening and into the early morning hours. As the sun began to rise, Sharmila opened her eyes.

Seeing this miracle, Ramtubai was astonished and wanted to hear more about Jesus. Soon the whole family decided to follow Christ.

Ramtubai's family and neighbors mocked him for accepting an unknown God. Terrible things would come from turning his back on the spirits in the rocks and trees, they warned.

But day by day Ramtubai grew in his knowledge of the Bible, and he often shared his testimony. Recently, he enrolled in Mission India's Church Planter training program. So far, Ramtubai has brought 17 people to the saving knowledge of Christ.
