Pintan Khundir’s family moved from a congested urban area of South
Asia to a small village because they thought the rural area would offer a
better life. Pintan and his wife have three children, and they wanted
them to be raised in a more traditional environment where, among other
things, they would learn to follow the family’s customary religion.
But then disaster struck—Pintan was paralyzed. He could not walk or
work or interact with his children like a normal father does. His
family, ever faithful to their traditional gods, carried Pintan to the
temples and offered sacrifices on his behalf. They also took him to
several doctors and hospitals for treatment, but nothing worked.
Pintan laid in bed, unable to walk for two full years.
With Pintan unable to work, the family’s financial safety net was
gone. They didn’t have enough money to buy food and many days, the
entire family went to bed without eating anything at all.
Gospel for Asia-supported missionary Beeni Sunkalam serves in this
village. He heard about Pintan’s situation while conducting a prayer
meeting as the believers there were praying for him. Beeni decided to
visit Pintan and pray for him in person.
Beeni was greeted warmly by the family, who listened intently as this
missionary explained the free offer of salvation through Jesus Christ.
As Pintan listened to the love of Jesus being shared, he began to weep
openly as he recollected the many sins he’d committed in his life.
Pintan and his entire family were touched in their hearts when they
heard that Jesus loved them and wanted to be a part of their lives.
After explaining the good news to this family, Pastor Beeni bowed
his head and prayed for them—specifically asking for Jesus to heal
Pintan. A short while later, Pintan got out of bed and walked for the
first time in two years!
The family was flabbergasted by the miracle and, that very day, they
chose to give their hearts to Jesus and receive His offer of love.
The entire family—including Pintan—is now back on their feet both physically and spiritually.
