Seventeen-year-old Sandun lived with his family in a small village on the southeastern coast of Sri Lanka. His father, Pasindu, a fisherman, worked hard to provide for his family. Sandun felt very lucky: His family had everything they needed; his father didn’t smoke or drink alcohol like many of the other fishermen; and he and his siblings were getting a good education in school and at home. Sandun loved his life and his family. But when a difficult diagnosis arrived, Sandun needed both healing and hope.
Learning About Jesus
Although Sandun had been in good health his entire life, he had developed breathing problems diagnosed as asthma, a common condition in the region due to the heat, humidity and dust clouds. Sandun took the medications prescribed for him for close to a year, but they only mildly helped.
One day, while Sandun and his siblings were home studying, GFA pastor Nuwan and his wife stopped by. The couple left a piece of literature with Sandun and his family, a gospel tract.
