Testimony of a migrant worker
(8 April 2020)

My name is Regin and I come from the state of Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, India. I arrived in Singapore on the 1st March 2009 to work as a plumber in a local Construction company. I was born in a Roman Catholic family but I was not a religious person. A friend invited me to attend the Risen Grace Ministry church in Ang Mo Kio. I was a regular church attendee.

On 19th October 2017, I received a phone call from my eldest brother who is a pastor of a village church in India. He had a dream of me being in an accident and called to warn me about it. However, I dismissed the warning as I was healthy and fit.

The following day at my workplace I was assigned to fix a broken wash basin in a client’s house. As usual, I took my tool box and carried a 24kg new wash basin on my shoulders. What happened next was unforgettable. I slipped and fell prone on the floor. The wash basin landed on my left arm and I became unconscious. The safety office in my company shared later that blood was oozing from my nose and both ears. Apparently I was not breathing. My colleagues thought I was dead!

In my “unconscious state” I hear a very loud voice, saying to me “Rise Up” and I saw a vision of a hand on my head. I woke up and was rushed to the A&E Dept of NUH. Xrays of my left hand revealed comminuted fractures of 3 fingers of my left hand. The orthopedic doctors were not confident that my affected fingers would recover and be functionally useful. I had several operations on my left hand and physiotherapy sessions. I stayed 13 days and my hospital bill totalled $41,000.

Pastor Augustine Baboo of the Risen Grace Ministry church visited me and prayed regularly for me. He encouraged me with a passage from Ezekiel 37 regarding the valley of dry bones becoming a mighty army. I was deeply moved by the words of Scripture and the love shown to me by Pastor and members of the church. After 3 months of physiotherapy, my left hand showed some improvement. I was on medical leave for 6 months and my left hand slowly regained strength. My finger bones were crushed but God restored them. Indeed my dry, splintered bones came back to live. God healed me completely! I went back to my hometown in India to recuperate. I returned to work in Singapore on 11 November 2018 under a new Construction company. My boss is a Christian and I am happy to be working with this Company.

The accident was pivotal in turning me to the Lord. I confessed Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord. I began to read the Bible regularly and pray daily. By God’s mercy, I received a new lease in life. Not only was I healed physically, I became a child of God. Slowly but surely, God is transforming me to be more Christ-like. Previously, I was an angry and argumentative person, always worried about finances and the future of my wife and son. I have become a more patient person and am not anxious about the future. My salary is low, but God provides daily for my needs and for my family. I trust in Him. I love to share the gospel with my colleagues, friends and strangers. In obeying the Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20), I witnessed people coming to faith in Christ and likewise they also go forth to share the good news of the gospel with others. I saw multiplication of believers in an amazing way! As I minister among the sick and those with broken lives, I saw many miracles of healing by the Lord. To Him be the glory! My greatest desire is to serve Him faithfully all the days of my life. He is my everything!
