Scaria Zacharias shares a testimony of how abiding faith in the Lord´s magnificence can bring deep change to the lives of those we serve in His name. A story of team work, prayer and growth

It all starts with a dream, one big enough to reach lofty heights. In Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT), like many of the campuses in India, the JY prayer group, started in a small way in the year 2012. At the outset, it was a small group of four members gathering weekly for prayer meetings. Regular follow ups and a growing fellowship with our collegemates helped us expand, both in number and in faith, eventually. We grew to a sizeable 25, all in a year´s time. We would gather for a weekly prayer meeting beside the volleyball court, even when the court was in use and often we got stared at by students who passed by.

In September 2013, the members of the prayer group decided to organise the VIT Marathon, an earnest effort at presenting and projecting the Christian theme of Pro-life to everyone on the largely secular campus. Much deliberation and thought went into the conceptualisation, planning and execution of the Marathon. The whole campus came together in an extraordinary show of support and many participated in the organisation of the event. There were times I was bewildered by the selfless service and dedication shown by all for the success of the event.
