“When you lose your husband, you are also considered dead, invaluable and alone. I was living without hope in darkness,” *Nasrin commented on the show The Sound of Hope after being faced with a limited future for her and her three children. Then, Jesus appeared.
When Nasrin lost her husband in an accident four years ago, a limited future became her norm. Nasrin lives in Pakistan, where widows are treated like outcasts. “In the society that I live in, when you lose your husband, you are also considered dead, invaluable and alone. I was living without hope, in darkness; with poverty and many difficulties.”
There seemed to be no end to her sufferings. Then, when Nasrin laid down to sleep after another sad and tiring day, everything changed.
“One night I slept feeling burdened and hopeless by my situation and dreamt that I was stuck at the bottom of a deep well in darkness. I was screaming if there was anyone out there to rescue me, and, as I looked up, I saw a glowing man all in white, reaching out to me!”
“He said, ’I am Jesus Christ, your savior.’ [And] He carried me out of the well.”
Nasrin had met Jesus. When she woke up, she felt light and free. The feelings of depression and hopelessness were gone. The limitations of life were pushed aside.
A LIMITLESS GOD
Shortly after her experience, Nasrin found a job and watched as Jesus transformed the life of her and her three children. Nasrin had seen the limitless God who breaks down all barriers. Yet, this doesn’t mean that no new barriers come up.
“I’m unable to go to any church here and I’ve never seen or owned a Bible and, even if I did, I wouldn’t have been able to read it. But, the Lord has taught me a lot and I have committed my whole life to Him.”
Nasrin’s children are also believers and now face new difficulties. “My kids were dismissed from school due to our faith. They have been called pigs and told by the school that we don’t teach pigs. I replied to them that for me, my kids are the children of the living God.”
“Please pray for my kids to be raised in their faith in the Lord, and for God to provide us an environment in which we can live and worship freely with other believers.”
Because of her dream, Nasrin found out just how limitless God is. And, because of SAT-7 programs, she and her family are seeing the possibilities of their future.
