The day Poonam was born, her mother died. Her uncle and aunt raised her. Later, a preacher came to their village and shared the Gospel with them. Her aunt and uncle were changed, but Poonam wasn't willing to believe. Later, when Poonam had to be hospitalized, her doctor, who was a believer, and a young man accompanying the doctor, came to pray for her. Through their teachings and prayers, Poonam’s life changed. Her uncle and aunt arranged her marriage to the young man who had come to pray for them. The young man's parents were not believers. They were very upset because he married a girl they didn't like and who didn’t bring any dowry, so they kicked them out of their house. Poonam and her new husband went through a very difficult time financially and emotionally. They now have two children, a 4-year old boy and a 3-year old girl.
