|FEATURE STORY - NEHA|
Native Place: Uttar Anchal, Himalayas, India
Birth Date: August 10, 1998
Testimony: I was born and brought up in a Hindu family and have one brother and one sister. Our parents were really poor, therefore they could not send us to a good school. Because of our poverty, they could not afford to give us nutritious food or clothing. My father worked hard in the field, but earned just enough for us to barely survive.
Also my eyesight was impaired. I could not look straight ahead. I had a birth defect that caused me to look sideways. The doctor said I would go blind if I did not get an operation. Due to the poverty condition my parents were in, they were unable to do anything for my eyes.
In 2005, by the grace of God, my brother Inder and I got to come to the Blue Haven Children’s Home operated by TellAsia Ministries. After coming here, God blessed me abundantly and it was beyond my expectation. I learned many things like speaking and writing in English, computers, and how to respect others. My favorite subject in school is science and I want to learn more about living things and things in nature that are not created by man, but by the powerful God. One year I got the top score of the entire school. Also, through a gracious donor, TellAsia was able to pay the money for the operation of my eyes. Now I can see straight and properly.
When I grow up I want to help poor families. For that I want to study hard. If I study hard, I know it will help me get a good job so that I would be able to help my family and other poor people. I would like to be an Air Hostess one day. This would be a good way to travel around the world and share Jesus' love with people. I also have a desire to one day give God's hope in every city and every village in the mountain area where I am from. In the world, I know my name can be famous, but I only want to become famous in God’s Kingdom for His glory.

North India is a very unreached place and many people are dying without knowing Jesus Christ.
