I let go of my greed for food, chocolates and sinful pleasures - Sumantha Arun Mitra, Pune

I am a non-Christian. I had been suffering with many illnesses in mind and body. My wife who is a Catholic used to have holy experiences and revelations through Divine TV programmes in the USA. This is my first retreat at DRC and the Lord Jesus touched me in a special way with His words: “The kingdom of God has come near to you” (Lk 10:9); “If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you" (Lk 17:20); “Do not fear or be dismayed at this great multitude; for the battle is not yours but God's” II Chr 20:15); "Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you” (Mt 7:7); “So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!” (II Cor 5:17). At first I understood that every sin will give only worldly pleasures. I have undergone tremendous spiritual changes during confession of my sins to Jesus Christ. I do not have unholy thoughts any more. I have let go off my greed for food, chocolates and the other sinful pleasures of life. I have also received healing for my anxiety, sadness and worry about my financial tensions. I have decided to live a holy life after this retreat praising the Lord with every breath. Though I am a non-Christian I am completely convinced of the power, love, and fullness of Jesus Christ. I wish and want to take my first step towards Him by getting myself baptised at the earliest. I wish to spend the rest of my life in His companionship. I am inspired by the testimony of Aravindaksha Menon and wish to spread the Word of God to my fellow brethren. I praise and thank the Lord for this wonderful experience.
