I thank Jesus for everything I have today and I also thank you very much for always praying for me and my family.
Bro Paul when you had come to Melbourne in September 2016, you prayed for me and my family and on the last day when we were about to drop you at the airport from Langam hotel, I had come to assist you and your team members before we could leave, I was in my taxi uniform and brother Alek said this is Samir when you saw me you asked me what happened why I look sad, I said the government in Victoria has forcefully acquired the taxi licence for $100,000/- ($ One Hundred Thousand dollars) and I has purchased it for $350,000/- ($ Three Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars) Now I have a debt of $197,000/- ($ One Hundred and Ninety Seven Thousand Dollars), on that day September 2016, we taxi licence owners were not aware when the government will give us this money it was a very big financial disaster in my life but you looked at me and prayed over me and said Jesus just like Peter give Samir 2 boats full of fish and just like Peter… Samir must glorify your name at that moment I didn’t understand any thing and I thought if only I come out of debt its a miracle, I didn’t expect anything more.
However as time passed by, I miraculously came across a developer and they asked me only 5% deposit to purchase a property in Cheltenham and I didn’t have fund’s however we managed to refinance our private car (Toyota Yarris family car) and get the 5% deposit organised, later the house where we were living its value went up so I managed to put the entire business loan into my house loan.
Next following year August 2017 we received letter from the developer to settle, the project was completed 3 month’s earlier and I was not ready with my bank papers to settle, the developer started sending me Notice Rescission where I was issued with a penalty of $10,000/- ($Ten thousand dollars) and now one week’s notice to settle or they will auction the property and than add further penalty on me for not fulfilling the contract and settling the property on time, I didn’t know what to do and on Saturday evening I said to Jesus I lost my taxi licence now if I lose the house I am not fit to show my face to my family, I couldn’t pray that evening and I said to Jesus my mind had stopped working please listen to my son John who is reading the Psalms 91, miraculously the same week on Monday in my letter box the government sent me a cheque of $100,000 ($ One hundred thousand dollars) which they were supposed to give me after they had acquired the taxi licence, I immediately gave that cheque to the bank for settlement. The property got settled and I got the keys on 14th September 2017 which was my wedding anniversary day. I thank Jesus for this Miracle.
After than within a week 3 patches appeared on my head the size of 3 coins close to each other my hair started to fall from these 3 patched areas and smooth skin begins tp appear, my GP (local Dr) gives me rash medicine but nothing working than he gives me a referral to meet a dermatologist but I got the appointment after 2 months, I was becoming bald very fast and I had to attend my sister in-laws wedding in Jan 18, I prayed to Jesus and in 3 days time since I am a taxi driver I got a customer who was a dermatologist, I spoke to him about my case and he took me to his clinic straight away, he gave me injections and than said exactly the same location where the forehead skin is exposed we need to do biopsies as the skin colour is abnormal after biopsies report the Dr called me and said you have Bowens skin cancer which is the early stage and you are lucky that it has not spread to your body, he was surprised that this happens to people above 60 years old and how did that come to me also it was on my head where there is dense hair we cannot apply sunscreen to the head on the hair and how it was exposed was a miracle, now he decided to take appointment for surgery and the surgery would be very big as the spots were at 3 locations, even that procedure had a waiting time of 2 months but as I prayed the Dr called me and said I will organise another Dr for you in the city you need to go straight and incase they mention that you do not have an appointment tell them since you drive taxi and were passing by you happened to come and are willing to wait for any Dr, however when I went there they said we are all booked and you may have to leave, we will call you incase somebody cancels their appointment but I kept saying if the Dr doesn’t see me it will be a big surgery on three locations but they didn’t agree and as I was about to leave from within myself I felt Jesus telling me that I will take you in now again and again and suddenly the phone at the reception rang and the receptionist said there is another Dr who will like to see you are you happy to go in and I said YES.
When I went in it was less than 60 seconds wait time and I was straight with the specialist Dr Laura young, she was surprised to see the medical report and called the lab to recheck the biopsy report, she mentioned that it only happens to old people and was surprised to see the location on my head where sunscreen cannot be applied, she also did my biopsy and the report was positive for Bowen skin cancer, she than started the treatment where a cream acts like an external kemo was used and after 6 weeks the skin was burnt and removed, new clear skin appeared and hair began to regrow now the Drs check me once a year and my skin on the head did not require surgery.
Now in January 2019, I got a letter from the second developer to settle my property in Preston and my wife had mental health problems the financial broker told me just forget this 2nd property with out Priya’s pay slip we can’t settle this property you may have to auction your property at Preston, I already had $80k as my tax returns and he said it will not help I prayed to Jesus and Priya recovered miraculously her pay slips began to come, the finance broker said because of harder lending standards you need to amend your tax returns to $160k I didn’t know what to do, I approached 2 accountants they straight away refused than I prayed to Jesus and my night taxi driver recommend me to go to his accountant and his accountant did agree he said from where can I show this excess income you show me the details, I will amend according so I didn’t know what to do, but I said to him that the government had given me $100 when they acquired my licence and had said we can pay tax on that amount, I asked him if we can show that amount and he agreed, I amended my income to $140k and paid additional tax of $28k to keep things moving finally the bank approved my house loan and we were ready to settle…
We were only waiting for the valuation to be done and were ready for settlement but valuation was 3 months late and when the valuation took place it was $100k less, I didn’t know what to do, but again Jesus gave me $88k miraculously and $30k from my in-laws we were again ready to settle after valuation but the settlement date by the developer was delayed by 3 months, my offer was about to expire after several extensions but on the last day of the offer the developer sent an email that he wad ready to settle… even during settlement there was lot of hindrance but by the prayer of Jesus Calls prayer partners this issue was solved and the house got settled on 19th December 2019 before Christmas vacation.
Whatever Paul Dhinakaran said Samir, ….Jesus will give you 2 boats of fish has been fulfilled…. there is a battle when Jesus is involved but we have to pray and the victory belongs to Jesus…
