Paul Ciniraj Mohammed a Muslim convert to Christianity is working among
Muslims and Hindus in South India. His faith in Christ has led him to so
many persecutions but God protected him and his family from the terrible
tragedy. Here is the thrilling miracle which took place in his life just
On 7th Sep. 2002 he got an email saying, "BELIEVE ALLAH IS ONE;
MUHAMMED (pbuh) IS HIS MATCHLESS PROPHET.
You're against the religion of peace. You propagate vulgar mission. You
are not only a "Kafir", but an enemy of the truth. Be careful.
You're going to loose your loved ones. And you'll live without having legs
and arms as a sign for those who destroy the true religion."
Pastor Paul contacted us and few other believers for immediate prayer.
Despite of all the prayers, things went wrong and all his three kids were
hospitalized. On 9th Sep. 2002, he wrote, "My children, Besly (elder
son, 13 years old), Hepzy (daughter, 12 years old), and Lesly (younger
son, 8 years old) came back from the school with a severe vomiting. They
are admitted in the hospital. Doctors think some food adulteration. The
children are very weak and tired, so we did not ask what exactly happened.
Kindly pray for them.
THOUGH HE SLAY ME, YET WILL I TRUST IN HIM; BUT I WILL MAINTAIN MY OWN
WAYS BEFORE HIM" (Job 13:15)"
Later that day they found out that on the way to school Besly, Hepzy and
Lesly were given poison by a woman. He wrote like this in his eMail,
"Thank you so much for your sincere and tearful prayers for my
children Besly, Hepzy and Lesly. By God's grace they are getting better.
They came out from the observation room. The whole night we were asleep,
knelt down before the Lord and waiting at the hospital. The Holy Spirit
strengthen me and my wife with a wonderful power, and we're quiet sure
that came through your prayers.
My children were coming back to home from the school by a public transport
bus. They use to come and go by bus only. The bus was thick with travelers
and other students. A middle-aged woman was sitting on a seat. As soon as
she saw my children, she smiled at them, called them by name and made
arrangements to sit the youngest one at her bosom and other two beside
her. On the way she enquired about our family as a well-wisher. She said
to the children that she is one of the prayer partners of our mission; we
(Mercy and myself along with the children) went and stayed with her family
some time ago and she always praying for us. My children don't remember
they met her before.
When the children were out of time to getting down from the bus she
supplied them chocolates as a token of love. She herself took out the
rapper and forced them to eat. My children are very fond of chocolates.
They were happy to get it.
As soon as they got down from the bus, younger one began to vomit,
suddenly the elder one too then the daughter. They lost their chocolates
when they vomited. Somebody went on the way saw this and they brought them
home soon. By the time the younger son fainted. We were afraid. But prayed
to God and took them to the hospital.
Doctors found poison in their saliva and gave the exact treatment in time.
If we were late two or three minutes..... ? Praise God. He protected us
mightily as the apple of His eyes. He answered our prayers. Thank you
again for your prayers. Now they are OK. They are God's children. LET HIM
DO WHAT HE WANTS.
We searched for that woman. But nobody knows her. We reported to the
police. I don't think the hospital is safe. And I don't know what to do
next. Please pray that God Himself take care of us according His will.
I again request you this time to pray for me and my family as well as our
pastors and evangelists who are ministering with us and their families,
the new believers and the seekers. EVERYBODY NEEDS YOUR PRAYERS VERY
Next day on 10th Sep. 2002 we got very disturbing email from Pastor Paul
Ciniraj saying his daughter Hepzy is in critical condition. He wrote in
his email that, "Please pray for my daughter HEPZY. At the daytime
she was all right. She is having a sudden change after the evening. She is
unable to breathe properly. She wants to talk; but cannot. She is loosing
her memory power. According to the doctors, poison might have affected her
Please...please...please pray for my daughter. Our Lord will not make His
children ashamed before the scoffers and heathens. He is the Lord of
miracles. By His stripes we have healing. Let His precious blood being
poured on her lungs. Let His nailed hands being touched her whole body.
May our Lord forgive the one who did this. By God's grace both boys are
OK. My wife is upset. Pray for me too, that God may strengthen me to
suffer anything. LET HIS WILL BE DONE."
Hapzy's condition worsened and she went into coma. But the almighty God
looked at the tears of His people and did mighty miracle in the life of
Hapzy. On the same day while we were on family prayer, God's mighty power
came upon us and He told us that, "When you will pray for people,
instant miracles will take place." We claimed the promise of God and
asked for a miracle. My brother also replied him back quoting, Psalms
34:19, "Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD
delivers him out of them all."
On 11th Sep. 2002, Pastor Paul wrote again sharing the mighty miracle
which took place in his life. He wrote, "My 12 year old daughter
Hepzy was unconscious about 30 hours. Myself, my wife Mercy, our boys
Besly and Lesly knelt down before our Lord around her bed and was praying
with full of tears. My sons had been recovered; and were with us at the
same room. We were sure that hundreds of the children of God like you were
praying for Hepzy with tears at that time..
When we were praying we saw Hepzy's face became very bright. Though her
eyes were closed, but she smiled with full of Joy. Quickly she lifted her
hands up and was trying to catch something. We assured she is departing
from us. My wife and children cried aloud. I tried to control; but
couldn't. Doctors and nurses who were on duty rushed into the room hearing
our cries. Doctor was attempting to check her pulse. But before he was
checking the pulse Hepzy got up automatically from the bed. Her hands were
up and we clearly felt that she was holding something in the space. She
was calling "YESHU APPACHAA...., YESHU APPACHAA...." in
our mother tongue. (Yeshu=Jesus; Appacha=Abba). Then she opened her
eyes. She looked into her hands with an amazement, then looked up to the
space, again to the hands and fingering a point, said: "AVIDE
YESHU APPACHAN!" (there is Abba Jesus). I hold her hands and
called her by name. Without any problem she recognized all of us. She
realized that she is in the hospital. It was about 1 O'clock at midnight.
She wanted to eat something. So doctor checked her thoroughly and asked us
to feed her something light. She is having little temperature. Doctor
prescribed a tablet and she had it. Before she went to the bed we praised
our Lord together. Hepzy praised the Lord and prayed with a new power..
PRAISE THE LORD! OUR GOD IS THE LORD OF MIRACLES! LIVING GOD! MIGHTY
Now Hepzy is taking rest. Mercy, Besly and Lesly are with her. I came home
to convey this miraculous news of our Mighty Lord answered the prayers of
precious and spirit filled children of God like yourself for Hepzy and
gave her life back for His glorification. Please pray that our Lord may
make use of her as His witness to win many unto His fold..
No! I will never turn back from the Lord. At any cost winning the Muslim
world and the third world unto the Salvation of Jesus is my ultimate aim..
The death may embrace me. Doesn't matter! For to me to live is Christ and
to die is gain..
Once again thank you for your valuable prayers and timely sending the
messages of encouragement. We have only few people praying for us and
asking whereabouts. In which you are the one. I will never forget it. May
God give you reward and bless you, your family, your colleagues and your
ministry. We always will be remembering you in our prayers..
Yours friend and brother

protection of His children.
Jesus, Son of Maryam, heal me - 5
this time you have read that, Gulshan Fatima was paralyzed at her left side
when she was only 6 months old. Her mother died when she was an infant. Her
father loved her so much that he took her to England for treatment but when
they heard the disappointing words of doctor, "it has no cure",
their hearts broke down. Her father encouraged her and said, "We will
go to Mecca and knock the door of Allah, and he will heal you." So they
went to Mecca and visited Ka'aba - the house of Allah. Even she kissed the
cubical shape of ka'aba but to their utter despair nothing happened. To
avoid her father's troubled look, she kept her face down. Then they visited
Safa and Marva from where they bought Zamzam water. She bathed with that
water but nothing happened. She and her father returned home heart broken.
Next blow for her was, her beloved father's death!
She woke up in the morning 3 o'clock as usual and started thinking, "it
is wrong that I am alive like a useless cripple but he is gone." Then
she thought, "God, I cannot live like this anymore, may be 30 more
years. Please take me to father." Then she thought, "Why God is so
far away and why so silent? Perhaps my forefathers have committed numerous
sins and because of it God is not answering me." Perhaps God wants to
see more patience in her, but how much more patience God needed from her?
She thought that if God does not help her, she would have to find some
method to kill herself. She thought about hanging herself which was nearly
impossible with her one hand. Then about poison, she had no idea that from
where it can be obtained. She also thought about knife and scissors but they
were beyond her reach and in locker. As she was thinking other thoughts came
into her mind that, "you will never be with your father and mother in
paradise, if you commit suicide." As a Sayed she had automatic entry in
heaven though she may fail in duties toward Allah and five pillars of Islam.
But taking her own life will cancel this privilege.
Oh, her heart was filled with hopelessness and great despair. She felt as if
someone has squeezed her heart and tears streamed down on her face. In her
great helplessness, she started talking to God, not like Muslims do with
their set prayers and books but her heart cried out to God for a solution.
Her words came out of her heart as she was talking to someone who knows all
about her, her need and her situation. She told, "I want to die.... I
do not want to live anymore, this is the bottom line." But to her
surprise her cry being heard by someone. She felt as a great peace filling
her soul and veil is lifted. She started praying with more boldness and
said, "What was my crime that you made me a cripple? As soon as I was
born, my mother was taken away from me now my father... why I got punished
so severely? She sobbed out saying these things. The silence was so deep
that she could hear her heart beats. Suddenly she heard a low, gentle voice
out of the blue in her own language, "I won't let you die, I will
keep you alive."
What's the point of keeping me alive, she inquired? She said, "I am a
cripple and when my father was alive I could share everything with him, now
he is dead and every moment of my life is like 100 years. By taking my
father you left me hopeless. I have no interest to live in this world
She heard the low voice again saying to her, "Who gave eyes to the
blind, and who made the sick whole, and who healed the lepers and who raised
the dead?" I am Jesus, Son of Mary. Read about me in the Quran, in the
Sura Maryam (Chapter 19)."
She had no idea how long these talks went on, whether 5 minutes or half an
hour but she woke up hearing the Morning Prayer call from the mosque. Later
that day she visited the grave of her father with her sister and other
family members and convinced that she was dreaming a dream. They had 40 days
mourning period for father in which many people from far and near, humble
and wealthy visited their home to pay respect to her dead father. During
these days no food would be cooked in home and brothers would neglect their
works and they spend all the time thinking and talking about the dead
After returning from the graveyard some strange things happened. One of the
maids screamed and pointed toward a chair, saying, "I saw him sitting
in this chair." And Gulshan wondered, why she would see him? Aunt came
to her room to massage her head because she had a painful headache because
of crying so much. "Your Uncle and me will look after you as your
father and mother, aunt said." When aunt left the room she recalled the
voice she heard about Sura Maryam and tried to read in her Arabic Quran but
it was difficult to understand fully. "Why not read in my own
tongue", she thought?
She sent a note through Salima saying, "Please give the bearer the best
available Urdu translation of Quran." She also told Salima to take
money from Aunty and go to bookshop and ask for the best version of the
Quran published by Taj Company. Salima went and two hours later she returned
with the book wrapped in newspaper. At night when everyone slept, she took
the Urdu Quran in her hands and unwrapped the green silk cover. She longed
to hear the same voice to assure her about the way of healing and new hope.
Her heart was full of sadness but filled with curiosity as she was holding
the book. She said Bismillah and opened the book and started reading.
The Angel said to Mary, "Allah bids you rejoice in a Word from Him. He
shall be noble in this world, and in the next, and shall be favored by
Allah. He shall preach to men in his cradle and in the prime of manhood, and
shall lead a righteous life...."
On the third day, Safdar Shah, her elder brother became Pir(religious
leader) and head of the family. At the end of mourning period they raised
the stone on her father's grave and everyone was invited for the mourning
feast. Before returning to Lahore, Safdar Shah came to Gulshan's room. He
was holding the papers of her property. He asked her to go with him and live
in his home at Lahore. But she did not want to leave her home and also she
wanted to learn more about prophet and healer, Jesus so she refused to go
with him. Safdar Shah told OK and he arranged to put money in bank account
of Gulshan and Gulshan will sign the check for household needs and Safdar
Shah will visit twice a month to see accounts.
One by one all left leaving Gulshan alone without a friend or close
companion. But aunt used to come and sit with her and talk...
