Thought for the day
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
Chennai: Kreesthalayam Church Dedication in Sreeramula Vari Pally Mission Field of Kadiri Mission, Rayalaseema Diocese on 27th November 2018 was the first milestone ever laid in the history of Mission Partnership in Kadiri Mission. The dedication of the newly constructed Church was marked by a mission partnership between South Kerala Diocese and Rayalaseema Diocese. Synod Mission Department witnessed the Mission Partnership blooms in Kadiri Mission.
Rt. Rev. Dharmaraj Rasalam, Bishop in CSI South Kerala Diocese and Rt. Rev. Dr. B. D. Prasada Rao, Bishop in Rayalaseema Diocese, have conducted the dedication service. Rev. C. P. Justin Jose (Mission Director, SKD), Rev. David Naik (Mission Director, Rayalaseema Diocese), Mrs. Lilly Prasad, Mr. Donald Lal, Rev. Maxcin John, Synod Mission Director, and the Mission Board Members of the South Kerala Diocese, Missionaries from Kadiri Mission and Guramkonda Mission have attended in the Dedication Service.
Mr. C. D. George and Mrs. Gracy have extended their financial support for the construction of the Church in loving memory of their parents. Rev. Jiji Stewart, Missionary in Charge, has supervised the construction project.
Remarkably, Church building seems to be a simple one at low cost which could be an example for the construction works in mission fields.
Furthermore, Mission partnership which blooms in Kadiri Mission appears to be a creative and sustainable example to those who are willing to engage in Mission Partnership in the days to come. It will be sharing of resources, talents, concepts and it will be journeying together for the well-being of others, especially the most vulnerable in the society.
Rev. Maxcin John,
Director, Department of Mission and Evangelism,
