The Lord of impossible lives! The believers in Thumbippara village had to walk miles to other Mission centers to worship the Lord. It was their earnest desire to have a worship center of their own. Answering the prayers our gracious Lord helped to find a proper plot at Thumbipparakkudi itself and helped us to construct a beautiful worship center. The Vice President of Tribal mission Mr. P C Baby inaugurated the hall. We thank all who supported in all ways. Please keep praying for us.

Karathoor, Palakkd.

Chithra, an Irula girl, the daughter of Mrs. Pappa and Laxmanan, was studying and residing in a hostel about twenty-five kms away from her home. Last month, one night she woke up with a terrible nightmare and since then became a totally deranged person. She showed no interest in her surroundings and refused even to carry her daily routine activities. So, the hostel authorities called her parents and send her home with them. The worried parents tried all the traditional medicines, and even sorcery to save her. All their attempts were futile. She became worse day by day. She was sobbing through out day and night with out sleep. For almost a week she just sat hugging her mother neither allowing her to go neither anywhere nor permitting anybody to come near her. Seeing the plight of the girl, the elder brother of Pappa sought the help of a local reputed magician who demanded Rs.3000 to start the treatment. Since they had already spent quite a lot of money for the treatments, they could not pay for the magician. Despite the strong opposition from her husband, Pappa’s mother decided to go to Lakshmanan, her younger brother who was a devout Christian. He fervently prayed for the girl and arranged for a three days fasting prayer meeting in his house. During the prayer session, our gracious Lord wonderfully healed the girl. Now Pappa and her beaming mother attend our worship regularly glorifying the true God who healed her. Please pray for this family so that the father and the neighbours who had witnessed this miracle may come to know Christ.
