As a child, Balraj could not go to school. His parents were too poor to send him and they needed him to work to help the family. He remembers as a child, he would peer into the schoolhouse to watch the other children as they learned, desperately longing to go to school too. But it never happened.
Soon Balraj was married with children, trying to make a living as a bicycle repairman. But he couldn’t read, write, or do math and this was a problem in his business. He knew that vendors, and even his customers, were cheating him, but he had no way to prove it.
When Balraj heard that a free Adult Bible-based Literacy program started in his neighbourhood, he quickly signed up. He learned so much in his class! Soon reading, writing, and calculating money became easy for Balraj. Through the Bible-based lessons, Balraj also learned about Jesus, and received Him as his Saviour. Today, Balraj isn’t cheated anymore, his business is successful, and he happily shares about Jesus with those who come into his bicycle repair shop.
