A Youth of Indiscretion
During his youth, Roshan believed in Jesus, but he never truly surrendered his life to the Lord. He went to Sunday school, was the president of his youth group and eventually became the Sunday school teacher and the church's secretary. Yet in Roshan's life, Jesus soon became just an afterthought.
The culture Roshan was raised in began to sway his life. Alcohol proved to be a powerful temptation, and the people he surrounded himself with only encouraged him to indulge in his newly acquired bad habits. Marriage to a woman named Lalasa didn't change his behavior much either. He still drank and still kept bad company.
Around this time, a hardline group in the area began coercing people to join their cause. Roshan knew it was only a matter of time until they came for him, so he fled with his wife to a village 150 miles away.
A New Life Emerges
Years passed, and Roshan and Lalasa had a son and daughter. Increasing family needs helped Roshan realize he needed to change. He had little idea that during this time, his younger brother, Aran, was praying fervently for him.
Aran, a Bible college student, often shared Christ's love with his older brother when he was home on school breaks. It was during one such visit that Roshan finally came to understand who Jesus is and sought Him for his future.
