Dear members and prayer partners of Grace Counseling India,
Greetings to you in the gracious name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I write this from Calgary, Canada on a North American visit with my wife. Let me update the GCI ministry for your information, praise, prayers and support.
For the last few years GCI activities were minimal due to none to stay and look after the Head Quarters and the lack of funds. After three years of prayers and search for suitable person, God is guiding us to revive the ministry of Counseling and Counselor Training (long term and short term) at the base. Thank God for His miraculous methods of working.
Resident Staff at GCI Centre, Kottayam: Mr. Deepak Ranganathan who was working lately with Missionaries Uplift Trust and Nisha (formerly, UESI Kerala staff worker) with their two little children have joined GCI ministry on 15th June 2013 as Resident Staff on training and probation for one year based at GCI Centre, Kottayam. Let us praise His great name and prayerfully extend our support to them. Former UESI staff Premkumar M.P. was instrumental in getting this couple for GCI. Thank you for the prayers for the GCI ministry.
Literature Ministry: We plan to re-start the literature ministry and preparation of materials including the publication of the “Grace Counselor”, with Cherian Zachariah as its Editor, appreciated by many across the world.
Tax exemption: God is at work in favour of our getting Panchayat Tax exemption for the buildings for which we were after the Govt. for the last 12 years. Continue to pray.
Visit to GFI: While I was in US, I had the privilege to be guest with Sue and Dr. Charles Solomon at the GFI home base in Tennessee. It was good to renew fellowship with GFI and discuss the needs and opportunities of GCI. Our web site was just republished with the help of John Woodward.

All glory and honor be to Him.
In His grace
