The Principal of Hindustan Bible Institute, Dr. P.N. Samuel Saravanan, had a major accident on May 19th and has severe traumatic brain injury. He underwent decompressive craniotomy surgery and was in the hospital for two months. God was gracious and answered all of our prayers and Saravanan has recovered very well. Today he is a living miracle!
Saravanan went back to the hospital on September 1st to replace a portion of his skull. He underwent cranioplasty surgery and by God’s grace he is doing well. Saravanan did have some breathing problem and after bronchoscopy, doctors found that he has narrowing of the respiratory tract. So he underwent another surgery in his throat and a T-tube has been inserted. He has to be under observation and special nursing care for the next six to eight weeks.
The Saravanan family has already spent $36,000 and HBI, India and New Calvary Church was able to raise some funds towards this. Now they are in need of another $7,000 to pay the remaining bills at the hospital. We request you to please help this family. Could you please send in your generous giving towards Dr. Saravanan’s medical expenses.
By the way, just a small background of Dr. Samuel Saravanan! Saravanan came to our children’s home when he was 7 year old as his father passed away and his mother could not take care of him. God raised him up as a godly man as he grew in our children’s home. He completed his Bachelor of Theology at HBI and received the call to be a missionary in Indonesia. He went to Indonesia and learnt the language to work among the Islamic people, baptized more than 30 people, and planted two worshipping groups. While in Indonesia he completed his Master of Divinity and Master of Theology.
Saravanan came back to India after 7 years, got married to Sheeba, a godly woman and God blessed them with two kids. Saravanan joined the ministries of HBI as a Faculty member and went on to do his Ph.D. in Intercultural studies. Continued as a faculty and a year ago he was chosen to serve as the Principal of HBI & College. We praise God for giving us the privilege of investing in the life and ministry of Saravanan, see him grow in the Lord, becoming a minister of God and serving Him through HBI & College.
Friends, your giving will certainly help them to meet the medical expenses. We request you to kindly consider helping Saravanan.
Above all, we want you to please pray for his complete recovery. Pray for his family – his wife, their daughter Sophia and their son Nikki. Pray for God’s guidance and leadership in their family. Pray for peace and strength for each one of them. Pray especially for Sheeba, his wife, who takes care of him 24/7.
Thank you so very much for allowing me to share this need of Dr. Saravanan’s medical help and trust you will help us in this need.
