In the year 1996 as Fr. Basil Mookkanthottathil was praying, he saw a forest where people do not know about Christianity. So he started to search the forest and he came to Machian Khurd where we have at present Prabhu Yesu Da Prarthan Bhawan Ludhiana.
By the blessing of Bishop Symopherion, Fr. Basil bought land near the forest at Machian Khurd village in Ludhiana in the year 1997. There was only a mud house in that land where he stayed. No servant, bathroom, electricity & water facility was there at that time.
He had no money even to spend for his daily needs. He started to stay there and fast and pray for the people, and a lot of people started to come to Prabhu Yesu Da Prarthan Bhawan, to get blessings from Jesus Christ through Mother Mary of Holy Rosary.
