Akhi’s Story

June 4 2015

My name is Akhi, and I am a pastor’s wife. One day my husband and I attended an engagement party of one of the Christian young men we knew. While at the party, we discovered that the Christian man was marrying a Hindu girl. We were very concerned, knowing what the Bible says about being unequally yoked with a non-believer.

My husband and I had no choice but to go this young man and explain that he shouldn’t get married until his future wife became a Christian. I offered to meet with this young lady for Bible study and asked her to invite any of her Hindu friends that she would like.

At first I shared with them the story of Noah. This young woman was open to the Gospel and responded immediately to Christ, acknowledging Him as her Savior. We continued to meet on a weekly basis, and as a result of meeting with this Hindu girl and her friends, twenty-two family members became Christians! The young couple ended up getting married and have established a beautiful Christian home. But the blessings didn’t stop there - another outcome was that the parents of the Hindu girl even got married! Although they had lived together for years and years, they had never felt the need to be officially married until they met the Savior.
