Emmadi had been attending a Bridge of Hope center for four years before her life suddenly came to an end.

A Bridge of Hope student’s life ended January 3 after an auto collision. Emmadi Asha and her family were riding in an auto rickshaw on their way to a New Years service at a Gospel for Asia-supported church when a motorbike collided with the vehicle at high speeds. The impact caused the rickshaw to turn upside down, damaging one of Emmadi’s kidneys and breaking her right leg and left hand.

Her family immediately brought her to the hospital. Doctors kept her in the Intensive Care Unit, but her condition only worsened. Two days after the accident, Emmadi got to see the shining face of her Savior in heaven.

Emmadi was studying in the ninth grade. She joined the Bridge of Hope center in her area in 2006. Because of her witness, her family members began attending the local church where a GFA-supported pastor serves, and now they worship the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior.

They ask for prayer during this difficult time, that the Lord in His mercy will comfort them and bring them peace.
