Doctor's Criminal Charges Replaced By God's Blessings! - Peter Fernandes, Goa

I am a Medical Practitioner with very good general practice. My first retreat at Divine Retreat Centre was in December 2007. I came with a lot of bad memories and I was completely confused in life. My neighbouring doctors, due to professional rivalry and with the help of their seniors had filed a criminal case against me. As a result I had to go to the Session Court and then to the High Court of Mumbai, India. I got the anticipatory bail.

During my first retreat I surrendered myself totally to the Lord and kept my hope and faith in Jesus. After the Retreat, the first message I received was that all my criminal charges filed against had been withdrawn by the police and my case had become a minor case. Four months later I left my medical profession and with the help of a beloved friend started my firm called ‘E.P.Associates’. Today, in eight months time, I am doing very well in my business and there are a lot of prosperous projects ahead.

My wife who was a relationship manager at HDFC Bank got a new job with 50% increment in salary. Jesus has worked great miracles in my life and I have now come to thank our Lord Jesus Christ for all that He has done for us. Praise and thank you Lord!
