Amala had a very successful ear drum surgery (February 2017) and now she is getting better. She has less listening capacity in both ears. The doctor said she cannot have surgery on both ears at the same time; only one ear can have surgery for now and if needed another ear can be done after six months. However her hearing has now increased. She was on bed rest while the wound was still fresh. She was in hospital for two weeks, and now she has come back to the safe house. Thank you, everyone, for your prayer support.
Satan has been trying to pull down Amala’s family since she was admitted to the hospital. She got a call from her uncle that her dad attempted suicide and was in ICU. From the last many years, her dad and mom have not been in good relationship. Recently they had a quarrel regarding Amala while she was in hospital; the issue was about giving her citizenship card. Amala had been requesting a long time about her ID card, without which she is unable to start any business on her own and she couldn’t get any certificate from the government level. Her dad was always against her having the ID card. Her mom was in favor of her having it but because of her dad, her parents had a fight and he beat up her mom. Then she left him and went to stay at her relative’s house. As a result her dad took poison and was admitted to the hospital.
Amala has completed three years staying at the safe house and by now she has learned beauty parlor skills and is running a beauty parlor. She has a strong desire to start a new beauty parlor by herself but she needs her citizenship card. Pray for her dad and also for her mom to understand her and support her in this situation.
We want to see her successful. She has faced many problems in her past and now she has a transformed life with new joy and peace.
Amala is a real motivation for us and many other girls who think they cannot restart in life again. Amala was physically abused by her own father for years, which she could not tell anyone; instead she decided to take her own life. We had the opportunity to bring her into our family. This same girl who wanted to give up her life has now found new hope to live a better life. Moreover, after a three year gap she has decided to go back to school (July 2016). It is not as easy it sounds to continue studies after a long gap and after going through so many circumstances, but we are glad she taken this step – with prayer, she will be firm, stable, and working hard in this new goal. This week we went to collect her results for the first term exam in her school. What a blessing to see that Amala scored fifth position in her class. We need to pray more for her to be a living example to many through her life and study. We are blessed.
Amala is a blessing for this house; we believe God has chosen her to lead the other girls. We are blessed to see her changed behavior. We were praying for a new beauty parlor teacher to train the sisters at the safe house, but His plans are not our plans. He raised Amala from the safe house, who has already finished her advance parlor course and now she is giving training to the other sisters in the house (May 2015). She teaches really well. Now we do not need any outsiders to give parlor training; we are happy to see God raising our girls from this house to witness to other girls. Amala has now become the reason of inspiration to other sisters out there. She has proved that those who work hard and learn from their heart can do impossible things. Because of the earthquake, her college is closed for two months and she is making the best use of her free time. We are very happy about her progress. Let’s continue to pray for her more.
