Surya got connected to a host through Unite Life back in October 2019. Since being connected, he has only continued to grow in the Lord. He shared a powerful testimony of God’s goodness and faithfulness in his life. We are so excited to hear that our dear brother has been steadily pursuing the Lord and staying in touch with our team after being connected. God has been using Surya in mighty ways through his faith and dedication to the Lord.
Before knowing Christ, Surya struggled to speak in front of people and he dealt with a great lack of confidence. Since following Jesus, he can now speak confidently in front of people. He has the courage to share the gospel with the people in his life. His host taught him how to effectively share his faith and has helped him gain the confidence to do so.
Surya shared the gospel with his family, but they have not yet accepted Christ. We have faith that they someday turn to Him. He has, however, successfully led one of his friends to the Lord! Surya also invited three of his friends to attend church with him. These friends have all been attending regularly and are growing in the Lord.
Unfortunately, Surya has been dealing with some financial struggles, but he has seen the Lord miraculously provide for him and his family. Although all companies are required to continue to pay their employees throughout the lockdown, his company did not give him a salary for two months. Even with no salary, he has seen the Lord provide. Surya said, “Although I don’t have my salary, my father is my provider, and He is feeding me daily. He is taking care of all my needs.” Although the lockdown has been tough for our brother, he now has more time to grow in his relationship with the Lord, and he plans to get baptized once he has the opportunity to.
Surya asked for prayer for his family and his finances. We are praying for the salvation of his family, that they would come to know the Lord. We praise God for this testimony and the work He has done in Surya’s life!
