Dear Brother in Lord Jesus Christ,
My name is A Thanga Raj aged 35 Yrs from Bangalore. I was working in a small private concern. One year back due to some misunderstandings (especially due to moral and chastity cause) I along with 10 other staff came out of the company. Since then all of us including 10 other staff and their family are facing great hardship without any definite source of income. Last year I along with my parents (Mother is a stroke patient) sat at the feet of Our Lord Jesus Christ and sincerely prayed for his mercy. To our surprise one of the old customers contacted me over phone and enquired about some details of his transaction presuming that I was still working with the old company. I told him about my exit from that company. Suddenly the customer asked me why I could not start on my own and the firm is ready to give their order. I explained that I could not do so for since I do not have any financial support to that extent. The customer advised to think about it and come out with good decision. On the very same day my friends by name Mr. Mohan (Hindu friend) and Mr. Sunil Ebenezer (Christian) came to our house and expressed their concern for our condition. Immediately both of them told us that they will invest some amount for the business and asked me to start the company since I and 10 other staff have sufficient experience in the field.
They also asked me to invest some amount as my share. Since all these things were happened without our expectation we thought it as a good suggestion. We therefore sat at the feet of our Lord Jesus Christ and offered our sincere thanks for his reply to our tearful prayers. Accordingly I and My friends with the help of other 10 staff started a Company and named it as “BETHEL LOGISTICS PRIVATE LIMITED. The work pertaining to this cause
went smoothly at that time and some customers also agreed to place their orders with us. Suddenly we got stuck up since we run short of funds as I was not able to invest my share amount due to the reason that the Bank Loan we expected through an agent betrayed us miserably. All our efforts to get money by pledging our house also failed. Hence I took hand loans for interest sold my vehicle music systems and invested in the company, now our debtors who were silent for all these days started to squeeze us now for repayment of loans we have taken from them. We have gone to the extent of selling our house also but nobody came forward to buy it and some interested party who came forward to buy the house tried to exploit the situation and offered a very low price. At present our credit is 29 lakhs and the party who came forward to buy his offer is 23 lakhs, customers who promised to give us the business also betrayed us miserably and there is no source of income for us. I had to sell even my mother’s THALI Chain to pay interest to the debtors. All of us including the staff and their families are struggling hard to pull on the days in the absence of any definite source of income.
We fail to understand the reason for this type of stagnation inspite of our sincere prayers to our Lord and God Jesus Christ. We now request your goodself to pray for functioning of Bethel Logistics Pvt. Ltd. without any obstacles. We request your goodself to place this petition in the hands of our Lord and God Jesus Christ and pray to shower his blessings on our families and Company Bethel Logistic Pvt. Ltd. to flourish and prosper since this company is the only source of income and livelywood to all of us. Also I have promised to give 10% of the overall turnover to Christian Ministries.
