The following story was written by Chevan Bhosale*, it has been edited for clarity.


Greetings in the name of Jesus. My name is Chevan Bhosale, from a small village in central India.

If you want to know what it means to be a blessed life, you can see it in me. I have completed my schooling from grade 1 through 12 while I was at one of Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission's Orchard Projects ear my home. I loved and enjoyed my studies while at the Orchard Project. I felt like I’m at home, but I could not continue my studies because the situation at my own home was not at all favorable. There was no one to look after my aging parents at home. Since there was no income source for my parents, I left my studies in the middle to be with my parents helping them by earning some money. Eventually looking at my parent's disturbing poor condition, they thought of getting me married. And in the next year, I got married. Now along with my wife, believing God for His provision and guidance, I look after my parents.


I count it my joy and privilege that I got to study in Mukti Mission, where I not only received my education, but also I came to know Jesus, and that’s the greatest achievement in my life.

I always used to think that if I was not enrolled at Mukti Mission’s Orchard Project then I could never ever have received a good education and also I would have not know about Jesus. When I used to see friends from my village, who couldn’t have their education, nor do they know about Jesus, I used to feel sorry for them but used to praise God that He had handpicked me to bless me in my life. I desire to see that my friends should know Jesus as I’ve received.

I want to thank Pandita Ramabai Mukti Mission from the bottom of my heart for their support and encouragement in my life.

Thanking you.
