WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA) – Discussing the lives of Dhumal, his mute son, Japa, and their experiences of loss, grief, distraught, and ultimately hope in God through Whom all things are possible.

Clapping, stomping and cheerful singing filled the Sunday school room. Children in brightly colored clothes moved together as Sunday school teachers led them in the motions to their favorite praise songs. Little Japa, only 5 years old, clapped and danced with the other children. But when the songs ended, it became clear again that something was wrong with Japa. When Japa first started attending Sunday school, he sat quietly during the lessons. In fact, he was always quiet, except during the songs—Japa’s favorite part of the class. It didn’t take long before his teachers realized that Japa was mute.

After his wife died, Dhumal did not know how to help his mute son. Father and son found hope through the prayers and encouragement of the local Gospel for Asia Women’s Fellowship.

Women’s Fellowship Speaks Hope to Father, Mute Son

After learning about Japa’s condition, the Women’s Fellowship reached out to the little boy. Tenderness filled their hearts, and they discussed how to help him. They visited his home and found out that Japa lost his mother when he was only 1 year old. Japa’s grieving father, Dhumal, did not know how to help his little boy who was mute from birth.

The Women’s Fellowship diligently fasted and prayed for Japa’s healing. At the same time, they visited the little boy and his father, encouraging them from God’s Word. As Dhumal listened attentively to their words, hope started to bloom in his heart. He started to believe God could heal his son. But would He?

Following a month of fervent prayer, the impossible happened—Japa experienced complete healing! The little boy began talking. Dhumal listened in awe at the sound of his son’s voice. What was impossible for the father to give his son was possible for God. Grateful to the Lord, Dhumal committed his life to serving the God of healing.

Father and son now attend worship services together, lifting their voices side by side to Jesus, the Great Healer and giver of hope.

Singing is still Japa’s favorite part of Sunday school, but he now also participates in the lessons with the other children, no longer watching in silence.

Read how God answered the prayer of a childless woman.

    God works many miracles in today’s world, and this is easily portrayed through Japa’s case. God blesses us in any ways, and it is amazing to see how much He can do for us as long as we keep our faith in Him. This is not always easy to do, and it may seem like He is not listening to us at times, however He is always there for us in any time of need.
