Liam & Lily in South Asia

My name is Liam and my wife’s name is Lily.  Our children are already married and stay in their separate houses. We are the only two of us staying in our house. For our living, we plant rice and vegetables. We can use the cultivation spot once after 3 to 4 years. So, we need to shift to another place every year. This kind of livelihood is extremely challenging these days. This cultivation cannot provide us food for the whole year. After we run out of food, we often starve by the end of the year.

We have been Buddhists since our grandparents. We practiced bowing down and worshiping idols. Whenever we get sick, we used to do animal sacrifice for healing, per the teaching of our Monk. But it doesn’t work at all. After this we thought deeply and evaluated in our hearts that we were just spending money and time but we didn’t see any improvement in our sickness. That’s the time the pastor came to our village to share the gospel.  And he shared about physical and spiritual healing. The pastor’s message was so powerful about both the healing of the physical and spiritual. Then our hearts touched and changed both of us. After the service, we invited the Pastor to our house and prayed for us.

Since then we had peace, comfort in our hearts and joint pain also healed in the name of Jesus of Nazareth. After this we realized that Jesus is the only one who can heal from our sickness and solve us from any kinds of problems we face. Then we accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal Savior.

We thank the Pastor who brought us darkness from light in Jesus Christ. We are regularly attending Bible study and church services in our village. Please pray for us so we may be able to know more about the word of God.
