On the outside
This week on Wesley Impact! TV, we talk to Jiya Aurora, who is a survivor of domestic violence. Jiya has found a renewed hope through helping others find faith and self-worth.
We are also joined by Shauntai Batskie, Aboriginal singer and a regular on the show. This week she sings ‘My Redeemer Lives’.
Rev Keith Garner shares his thoughts on the account in Luke’s Gospel of the 10 lepers and how only one responded with gratitude.
Special guest: Jiya Aurora
Jiya is a Sunday school teacher here at Wesley Mission and anyone who has met her will know that her smile lights up a room. As a child, though, Jiya was abused and later forced into an violent arranged marriage.
When she moved to Australia, Jiya was on the verge of becoming homeless, but she was able to change her life and is now working and studying full-time. Jiya shares her story with us and tells us how she found a new life in Jesus Christ.

Keith’s message: The lepers
Rev Keith Garner reads from Luke 17.
In this passage 10 lepers called out to Jesus from a distance, which was not allowed because they were considered unclean and as such had no right to come close to Jesus.
Jesus saw them, heard them and responded to them. God’s healing is not restricted to anyone. After the healing, only one of the men, a Samaritan, returned to offer thanks to Jesus Christ. This shows that out of the 10 lepers only one was total healed.
