The Greatest Journey Transforms the Life of a Girl and Her Family


au-story-wflagSimran, 7-year-old from an Indian Hindu family, loved her shoebox gifts – especially the colored pencils and coloring books. After receiving her shoebox, she joined The Greatest Journey class in her community. She wanted to know more about the creation and love of God because of the stories she had heard from church kids during the distribution.

During the follow-up program, Samaritan’s Purse Australia had an opportunity to share the Gospel with her parents and pray for them. As Simran’s life was transformed, she had so much joy to share with the other children on Sunday that her parents also started attending church. Three weeks after Simran received the shoebox, her parents became Christians.

Simran’s family is attending Grace Samaritan Church. Their hearts and lives have been touched, and they have been blessed in many ways. Her mother Vinita was healed and Dinesh, her father, found a good job. The peace of God came into their lives.

This family is now a living testimony among their family and community where they are boldly sharing the good news and salvation of God with them at every opportunity. And it all started with a little shoebox. What an amazing impact.

Please pray for Simran and her family, that they will mature in the Lord and continue to share their faith with family and friends making an impact within the Fijian Hindu community.
