Pooja was born in a Hindu family. Her father is a daily laborer, working in house construction and her mother is a housewife. She has 2 younger sisters and 2 younger brothers. Her family is financially poor. Since her father was the only working family member, there were not sufficient means to meet all of the family needs.
Her family was not only facing financial problems but also was undergoing a difficult situation, as her mother was possessed with an evil spirit. Her family started to seek help from many different religions and doctors but nothing helped.
Later on they came to know a pastor and he shared Jesus Christ with them and prayed for her mother. Immediately, her mother was freed. So from then on all of her family became followers of Christ. Her family came to know about the hostel through the same pastor.
Pooja personally knew Jesus as she was brought up in the hostel. She personally was able to experience the love of God in her life.
Pooja came to Mercy Homes in 2007 and was admitted in class 5. Now she is in her 2nd year of college to earn a bachelor's degree in software engineering. When she completes her education she wants to assist her family as well as needy children like herself.
