Nepal | Surprised at the Change in My Life
November 2, 2009
“Hello, my name is ‘Y’ and I’m studying in Class 5. I come from a Christian family, and there are five of us.
Even though my family believes in Jesus, I didn’t have a personal relationship with Him. I would follow my parents to church and I would go to Sunday School, but what I really liked was being with my friends.
When I started schooling, my parents arranged for me to stay at the hostel. There, I got into trouble often. I would quarrel with the other students in the hostel, and I got scolded a lot for the problems I caused.
Even though I was unhappy, I held on to my dream – I like to dance, and my ambition is to be a good dance teacher. So that I can practice my dancing, I always listen to songs on the radio.
One day, as I tuned my radio, I heard a song that I had never heard before. I tried dancing to it, but as I wasn’t familiar with the song, it was a little difficult for me. I decided that I would listen to the program on its next airing and get my dance right.
I listened to the song the following day, and as the song played I listened carefully to the music and the lyrics. It was only then that I knew that this was a children’s radio program, Balphulbari.
I ended up listening to the entire program, and I was very impressed with it. I wrote a letter to the program host from the address given during the program. The host replied, and I got a Bible tract and a story book.
Bit by bit, God changed my life as I listened to the program. My teachers and friends were so surprised at the change in me!
The school holidays came around, and I went home. My parents were so happy at seeing the change in me, that they called and thanked the program host over the telephone.
Thank you TWR for Balphulbari! I like this program very much!”
Prayer and Praise
- Praise God for the life change in listener ‘Y’!
- Pray that more children in Nepal will come to have a personal relationship with Jesus.
- Pray for the Balfulbari team as they research and produce programs to meet the needs of the children on Nepal.
