God’s Word overcomes rituals and dark practices in Goa, India

E-Mail Forward

“I was an ungodly person. I was involved in all rituals and dark practices common to our tradition.”

That’s how one Thru the Bible listener from Goa, India, began his recent letter. Here’s more of what he had to say:

“At that time, there was no television in any of the homes in our small village. Our only means of connection with the outside world was the radio. I had a habit of listening to the radio news every evening after work. One evening, I stumbled on your program. The message immediately pulled me in and compelled me to think about my life and condition. As I tried to sleep that night, I was restless. The entire message replayed in my mind.

“The very next evening, I took my radio and listened to the same program. After listening, I told my wife and children what I had heard. Though the children were very young, I felt the need to share it with them. Ever since then, my wife has joined me in listening. We have both accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior.

“It has been eight years since we began to hear your messages. We now share the programs with others and some of the families have become believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. I thank God for our radio, and I thank you for continuing to broadcast His Word. Please do not stop.”

What a wonderful story of how God is using His Word to change lives. Today let’s thank Him for bringing new life to this family in India and ask Him to reach many more as we broadcast Thru the Bible in more than 100 languages and dialects around the world.

Join us next week as we travel to Africa on World Prayer Today.
