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
Betlagundu: The Department of Mission and Evangelism, CSI Synod has participated in the Mission Review Meeting organized by Home Missionary Society (HMS), Madurai-Ramnadu Diocese on 10th March 2020 at Batlagundu CSI Church, Dindigul District in Madurai-Ramnadu Diocese. This meeting was the part of the regular monthly mission review of HMS. The meeting was started with praise and worship led and Rev.Maxcin John led a devotion based on Mathew 5:13-16. He reminded that being salt and light to the world is not just a privilege or position, rather, responsibility and accountability. ‘Marturia’-witnessing is an important matter and our life must glorifiable to God always, he told. There was a sharing session in which the missionaries shared their stories from the Mission fields such as developments, challenges etc.
Rev. Pon Prabhakar, Director for the HMS organized and led the program in a creative way. Betlagundu Church hosted the program under the leadership of Rev.Daiva Kani (Pastor), and the Pastoramma and the Church committee members. 53 missionaries have attended the monthly review meeting. It was the opportunity to learn and listen together as well as to have fellowship with each other.
The Madurai-Ramnadu Diocese has its strong footing in the committed service rendered by missionaries. Church Missionary Society (CMS), The Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (SPG) and The American-Madura Mission were the three reputed organizations which printed their service in our Diocese. Among the above said three Missionary Societies, the American-Madura Mission’s contribution is tremendous. Betladundu was the crucial station for the missional engagements. Nowadays, under the HMS, mission work is moving for the transformation of the given community.
The Department is thankful to Rt. Rev. M. Joseph, Bishop in Madurai- Ramnadu Diocese and also all officers as well as Rev.Pon Prabhakar, Director for HMS. Fifty-two missionaries have attended in the monthly review meeting.
