“Very clearly I heard again the same voice, ‘My daughter.’ I look[ed] back. There was a bright light shining on the corner. Inside of the light I saw Jesus the Lord.”

Sayujya Thampuratti belongs to the Hindu Royal family of Kerala in India, and she shared recently about how Jesus came to her one day—revealing Himself to be the One Way to God the Father—and changed her life forever.
“From childhood I was an idol worshiper,” says Sayujya. She describes in the posting how she had been “offering flowers to [her] idols” when one of them fell from her hand and broke into several pieces. She became very upset and “cried with a deep sorrow,” she says.
“While I was crying, Somebody touched me on the shoulder. I thought it was my mother…the Person touched my shoulder [and] called me ‘My daughter,'” described Sayujya.
“I was shocked because it was a gentleman’s [voice]. I stood up immediately and turned towards Him; but I found nobody behind me. I looked around the corners. I was surprised to [find] nothing because I was quite sure that [Someone] had touched me and called me as daughter,” continued Sayujya.
Finding no one, the girl went back to her room and tried to put the broken idol back together, to no avail. She began to weep again, until…
“Very clearly I heard again the same voice, ‘My daughter,'” Sayujya described. “I look[ed] back. There was a bright light shining on the corner. Inside of the light I saw Jesus the Lord. I quickly understood it was Jesus, because many times I saw His picture several places. Jesus told me, ‘My daughter, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life; no man comes unto God the Father, but by Me. Believe Me…and follow Me.’
“Automatically I knelt down before Him. I confessed before the Lord Jesus and accepted Him as my personal Savior and Lord,” said Sayujya. (Photo: Sayujya being baptized/PCM)
Following her amazing conversion, she took all her idols and threw them away, much to the astonishment of her parents. She explained what had happened to them, but “they became angry and began to persecute me,” she said.
Sayujya was able to obtain a Bible from Pastor Paul and Mercy Ciniraj of Paul Ciniraj Ministries (PCM), and she was soon baptized.
Says Sayujya, “I asked Paul Ciniraj Ministries for more Bibles to distribute among my friends that they too will be believing Jesus Christ as their Saviour. Now I share my testimony among my fellow beings and distributing Gospel tracts and Bibles through PCM.”
Sayujya added, “Every day I am becoming strong in my faith in Jesus Christ, my Lord. Please pray for my family and friends to experience this marvelous and happiest salvation.”
