Now God so loved me that He sent one of his servants Bro. Lawrence Raja, who used to come to my house many a times. He not only prayed for me fervently, but also advised me to change my attitude and path towards Christ. Though I would attempt to listen, looking for a chance to skive away, I made sure I neglected his words. Result as my studies continued, my arrears started to grow up. I was least worried about anything. I just wanted to enjoy my young age.
One of my friends, Mr. Iwin Johnson he used to come to me with a message that God loves me. He advised me to pray and read Bible, quoting Jesus died for our sins. I used to scream and shout at him, asking him to get lost, threatening him not to come and talk to me like this anytime in future. My life continued to roll in my sinful path.
In my last semester exam in 2007, I had 12 subjects as arrears. Many of my friends were successful in their campus interviews even before their graduation. For me, I was not even qualified to attend a campus interview. Still I was least bothered about anything and I wanted to relish in my young age. Ironically, I remember saying to my friends that I wanted to go to UK, who unsurprisingly laughed and mocked at me.
After the results of my exam in May 2007, I still had 8 subjects to finish my course. My parents and relatives were totally disappointed and there was no peace in my house. Strangely, I hoped I would be able to pass the exams next time. I was wrong and unsuccessful continuously in my attempt to finish my course.
