Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Greetings in the name of our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ.

By the grace of God we could enter into another month of 2017. Let us praise God for all the blessing we received in the last month. Let's examine ourselves, about our decisions and commitments we were taken on New Year day. 

This year month of February has many special days. Healing ministry Sunday we are observing on February 12th and Last week of February the Lent Season begins. Let us use this month to prepare for observing a meaningful Lent Season. We have many members who are directly or indirectly connected with Healing ministry. Healing Ministry is one among threefold ministry Jesus used. If God willing our AGM will be held on 19th February, 2017. Let it be a meaningful time for examine ourselves and not for blaming each other but for seeking strength from God to continue our faith journey according to His will.

All over the world celebrates  "Valentine's Day" on February 14th . The greatest love letter in the world is Bible. John 3:16 tells "God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life". Whoever believes in Him become the children of God. Let us examine what kind of love we have? Jesus gave His life for each one of us. Nowadays our relationships  became a contract. God's relationship with us is not a contract but covenant. In 1980's there were a tendency among youth was "Choose Three, Love two and Marry one" but nowadays it became "Choose Three, Love two and Marry none". Young Women and Young Men, especially in Spiritual circle, are bothered by the question, "Is it wrong to fall in Love?"  The peer pressure and the media appeal are too powerful for youngsters to resist. Falling in love is not sin. But love at first sight is risky. Go slow. Consider the pros and cons. Consult your parents, trusted elders and senior Christians before giving word. Commit the matter to the Lord and wait . See if you have peace over the matter. If you are open and sincere, God will guide you with confirmations. Remember God knows your future. So trust in Him only. 

 By God's Grace we could reach here on 13th January, 2017. We are very grateful to all of you for your warm welcome you have given us. Thanks for your love, concerns, and prayers from all the members. I thank Rev. Paul Rajan Achen and family for take care of the pastoral needs of our congregation during our absence. I know that I am not at all worthy to be your Pastor but I trust in Almighty God who called me and strengthens me to do His ministry even though I have many limitations. So please uphold us in your daily prayers, so that God may use us in His hands according to His will. Don't hesitate to call me.  Whatever pastoral services you expect from us, please share with us. Any time you can call me (24*7) and share with us your prayer requests also. Hope as soon as we get the driving license and fulfilling other formalities, we can start House visits and pastoral care. Till now please bear with us. Let us work together for the Glory of God in coming days

May God bless us all.

With Love and Prayers,

Rev. Pretheesh Babu Kurian
