Nathu and Maya left their mountain village 5 years ago with their three little kids. Unable to support their family in the village, they ended up in the capital city working at a carpet factory.
Nathu used alcohol to run away from his problems which ultimately created family trouble. Quarreling with Maya became the norm and their children’s demeanor grew worse over time. It’s clear they were no longer a happy family.
During the pandemic, SRC delivered relief packages to the carpet factory workers. Nathu and Maya were one of the recipients and became overwhelmed with emotions when given the food, as did their kids. But, they were not interested in learning about Christ. Now let’s move forward to 2022.
