“He would lock me in a small room with the animals. Days turned into weeks, and my stomach would growl. He never gave me enough to eat,” said Nadish. “Weeks turned into months, and my body would ache. The work was hard, and there was never enough time to rest. Months turned into years, and I began to think that this would never end.”
But through a miraculous event, Nadish found his way back into the loving embrace of his mother. Dr. K.P. Yohannan’s book, No Longer a Slumdog, unveils the true-life accounts of many of South Asia’s children, like Nadish. The message hits hard. He speaks of “winds of change” and a powerful move of God.
The children’s stories tell of going from a life of heartache and poverty to finding joy, laughter and a bright future. Despite the affliction these children face, Yohannan shows us there’s opportunity for change as many find new life in God’s redeeming love.
No Longer a Slumdog inspires faith that a better tomorrow is truly possible.

I cried through the entire book, and not always sad tears; there were some happy tears in there too. What an amazing story of so many individuals rescued and helped by the GFA organization! Truly heart-wrenching and inspirational to see the work that God is doing in Asia! I immediately went to their website and signed up to sponsor a child in India.
I especially loved the quotes from famous missionaries and apologists at the beginning of each chapter. Excellently written and well-organized book that reads easily and quickly! I encourage everyone to read it!
