Story of Laxmi - Hope Restoration
When you walk into Laxmi's back yard this Christmas, you’ll hear the sound of a loudly bleating goat. For Laxmi and her family, it’s the most wonderful sound they’ve ever heard because it means hope.
Life used to be comfortable for Laxmi and her husband, Raja. He made good wages working as a carpenter, and Laxmi stayed at home with their two sons and daughter. But everything changed when a unfortunate accident suddenly took Raju's life.
Now, as a jobless widow, Laxmi had to provide for her young children all alone. She worked hard to farm her land, but she struggled to put food on the table. She couldn’t pay her kids’ school expenses or buy the clothes they needed.
“I was so discouraged. There was no one to help me—not from my family or my husband’s. There was no one to comfort us. To be alone and responsible for my children was a big challenge. I didn’t know how I would be able to feed them and send them to school.” - Laxmi
Laxmi wasn’t really alone. She knew Jesus, and her HOPE pastor and fellow church members often visited to comfort her and her children.
Seeing her need, the HOPE bought two pregnant goat and gifted it to Laxmi. Hope once again blossomed in the overburdened mother’s heart: God was taking care of her. With this goat and its future kids, Laxmi will start a business. She plans to sell some of the kids for income, raise a herd of nanny goats and use the goat droppings to fertilize her crops.
“Because I have these goats, I am able to move further in life,” Laxmi continued. “I have a hope that I will be able to multiply this goat, and through it, I will be able to provide my children’s needs.”
