| “My name is Sarita. I come from a tribal Korku family who live in a very poor faraway village. My parents are farm laborers. They have to feed a family of eight on the limited income that they make. I have one elder brother, one younger brother and a sister. My grandparents also live with us. I praise God for bringing me to RGI.
Before coming to RGI I have gone through a very difficult situation in life. My life has changed a lot after coming to RGI. Had I not come here I wouldn’t have learned so much, I couldn’t have fulfilled my mother’s dream for me.
Before I came to RGI I had only heard the name of Jesus, but didn’t know anything beyond that. Now I have accepted him as my personal Savior. I never believed in any God before, because I thought that the religion that my family follows is hypocritical. I didn’t believe in God neither did I trust any person including my father, mother and brother. I always felt that I am not liked by anybody in the family and no one loves me. My elder brother still does not talk to me.
In RGI I experienced that there are people in this world who love me. Through
Starting Point I learned that Jesus loves me and I accepted him as my Savior. I will never forget the simple ways in which the Bible was taught to me. I got friends in RGI whom I will never forget. Nani gave me my first hugs. I was a very angry person before coming to RGI, but now I can deal with it and I am a happy person. I learned how to cope up with people in life. (When Surita first saw me in a Q and A session, she just stared and stared. I wondered what was the issue. I asked Nupi to find out. Surita had never seen a white person and didn’t know anyone in the world was a different color, or had blue eyes and bottle blonde hair or spoke a different language. She had been completely isolated from any worldview.)
I have finished my tailoring course in RGI. I want to start a home based business in my house and at the same time I want to continue my studies further and become financially independent. Please pray for me.”
