Greetings to you in the sweet name of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
My name is Inder Mulchandani. I belong to a traditional Hindu family. I would like to share with you my real life story (personal testimony) as to how God healed our daughter from a terminal illness and changed our lives by introducing us to our saviour, Jesus Christ. I want you to know that I did not convert my religion but I have found the true God. My testimony goes like this:
In 1996, I met Anjali, a catholic girl on the reception counter of one of my customer’s office in Dubai. After several visits, we became friends which became later an emotional affair which concluded in our marriage in in 1998. To us a beautiful daughter was born in 2001; we gave her the name Janvi. After around 10 months of her birth, we noticed some swelling in her eyes, which grew so much as if eyes would fall out. We took her to a hospital from where we were referred to a bigger hospital in Sharjah. Doctors did all kinds of tests including ultrasound and blood test and finally gave us the shock of our lives.
Janvi was diagnosed with blood cancer.
We questioned the doctor how could this happen in such a small age of 10 months. Doctor said that it was a natural thing and could happen to anyone at any age. He promised to do his best yet he asked us to trust in God because he knew that death and life had equal chance in Janvi’s case at this stage. It was a terrible situation and we did not know how to handle this.
I had been living a casual life till now and this incident shattered us. I almost became an alcoholic and a chain smoker. I still would continue to go in disco etc to separate myself from the agony I was going through. Doctors after some time suggested to transfer our child to Tawam Hospital in Al Ain. My wife and me faced tough times and then I started going to temple, doing religious things in hope of some miracle to save our child but nothing happened. Instead, Janvi’s condition kept getting worse and there was no peace in our lives.
Looking at our state of mind and the circumstances we were going through, one sister shared with us about the love of Jesus. She affirmed that Jesus came to this world as human being to save the whole mankind (and not a particular religion or people group but all irrespective of their caste, creed, religion, sex, language or place of birth) from their sin. She comforted us with the words which we never heard earlier. She even said that if we believed in the true God who came as Jesus Christ, our daughter could be healed.
I said that I followed religious rituals of all religions to save my child but nothing happened now let me try Christianity. But my friend, let me tell you that Christianity is not a religion, it is a relationship with our creator God. I know now that Jesus came to restore this relationship which was broken due to sin in our lives. We all have sinned and need God’s grace and therefore need to believe in Jesus’ sacrifice for the forgiveness of our sins.
As we consented to pray to Jesus for our daughter’s healing, that sister invited Pastor to come and pray for my child. They explained to us how Jesus died for the sins of the whole world and if we invite him to come in our life, he will save us and give us eternal Life in heaven. They prayed for our daughter with tears (which I could not understand then how could they love my daughter that they even cried for her) to Jesus for her healing and our salvation. I was somehow touched by this Christian love and the faith by which they prayed.
My Wife Anjali even though was a catholic but she did not share much about Jesus with me earlier. After this prayer, we were invited to Word International Church in Al-Ain and we started to attend the church fellowship. Slowly our daughter Janvi’s condition started getting better and it was a miracle. Moreover, I started experiencing change in my own life as I learnt more about the sacrificial love of Jesus Christ for a sinner like me. I was slowly getting convinced that Jesus (the Son of the living God) died for my sins and rose again third day. I knew that He is alive and is in heaven yet I was not able to completely give up my habits of drinking and smoking.
In year 2003, during a prayer meeting, I heard the testimony of pastor Narendra Bhatia that how he was living a life similar to me and then how he gave up everything in order to surrender himself to Christ and how then God blessed him. From the Bible, I had come to know that no one can enter into the kingdom of god unless he is born again – that is forgiven of all his sins upon confession and receiving Jesus Christ as his personal God and savior. I came out of this prayer meeting and threw away alcohol bottles I had in the car. I surrendered myself to Christ and invited Jesus to become the lord of my life.
Dear friends. my Life was transformed and by the grace of God I gave up all bad-habits, I was set free from alcohol and smoking all other habits along with the forgiveness of my ALL sins. I and my wife came to know the Lord personally and I am grateful to Jesus for having chosen our family.
My daughter started recovering and now Janvi is completely healed in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord. She is 8 years old with no sign of sickness at all. We have not only received the healing but also our saviour Jesus in our lives. Now, my Wife Anjali does serve God by praying for people who are suffering with sickness in the same Hospital where my daughter was admitted with virtually terminal illness – Tawam Hospital-AlAin.
Dear reader, I am truly thankful to God as he transformed me and saved our whole family. Today, we stand as a testimony for the Glory of God. May God bless you.
