My name is Shyamoly Hembrom. I was born in a Christian family and learned about the love of God from the Sunday school, Young Bible club and Church. I married when I was 17 years old. There was a big tragedy in my life after I become married. I was suffering from depression for 14 years. I kept my secret prayer request many times and even I prayed for myself too. Finally, I got my answer on last 19 January 2019. I gave thanks to the Lord. You give thanks to Him too.
I got married to Ripon in 2004, but after my wedding my in-laws couldn’t accept me as I was a Santal woman. I was in my father’s home with my son and husband for many years. My mothers-in-law couldn’t accept me in such a way that she used to torture me mentally, didn’t touch anything from me, even didn’t taste my cooked food. These all were because I am Santal, I belong to different tribal cast. As a result, our family started to face much trouble. We as a couple started to fight with each other. We decided to divorce each other once. I used to ask people to pray for me, but I couldn’t tell them the whole things which happened to me. I started to pray for my husband. After a time, I saw changes in Ripon, and we both started to pray together for my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and his son Ankon. Finally, we realized, God has answered our prayer last January 2019. We are now happy and peaceful family after long 14 years. I give thanks to the Lord for His grace and love.
