How did you come to know the Lord?
I knew the Lord when I was in the grade eight. By then, I was sent to a sort of boarding school. So it became a time when I had run out of everything [like] meals and even pocket money. So I thought in my mind that, “Oh, there is no one who loves me, and they have just brought me here to dump me here. I should be separated with my parents and the relatives and the friends.”
So it came a time I decided to go to my uncle so that he can give me some money so that I can buy some meals. When I reach there, I met a man in the kitchen. He was the one who welcomed me before meeting the uncle. Then he said, “How’s life?” Then I said, “Life is not fair.” “What do you mean?” I said that nobody loves me; they have just dumped me there. Then he said, “No, no, no, no, there is somebody who loves you.” Then I said, “Who is this one who loves me?” He said, “Jesus loves you. He died for you.” So he explained a little bit about this Jesus. Then he asked me, can I accept this Jesus? Ah, he asked me, “Can I pray with you?” I said, “Yes, pray with me please.” So I prayed along with him. Then he started teaching me: This is how we live, this is how we live. So that is how I come to know Jesus—because of the word “love.” I was attracted to that one because I thought no one loves me.
