Oddanchathram MUT Seminar
GCI had a second program in MUT from March 9-11. It was conducted by Deepak R., Cherian Zachariah, Mrs. Mary Philip (Chennai/Delhi), and John Z. Both seminars were very challenging exposures and of deeper experience for the participants.
These events opened new doors through the missionaries who attended the Seminars from different States. We have invitations to conduct programs in Trichy, Nagercoil, and Gujarat through these programs.
We have invitations and possibilities of running ELS and Training Programs in Chennai (through Capt. Cherian Thottathil, GCI Board member & Mary Philip), in Bangalore (Through Alumni Immanuel & Myra Theodore as well as my son Joesam John Zachariah) and in Mysore (through Mrs. & Mr. Mohana Krishnan, in Delhi (through EGF including my son Joezac John Zachariah & Mary Philip), in Mumbai, Pune and North East India through our EGF friends.
John Zachariah’s improved health should allow him to join Cherian Zachariah (GCI Executive Secretary), Deepak, Capt. Cherian, Mary Philip, Immanuel Theodore, Mohana Krishnan and others for the ministry in these areas. GCI plans to organize and conduct programs in these areas appointing these as Regional Organizers.
Cherian Zachariah in full time ministry
The GCI Board has appointed Mr. Cherian Zachariah to work full time along with his church and local responsibilities and on payment of a monthly allowance. He takes care of the GCI Centre in the Administration and Management with the assistance of Deepak Ranganathan. GCI is trying to raise the funds needed for his support and other programs at the Centre.
Deepak has expressed his plans to move from GCI Centre, Kottayam to Wynad (North Kerala) to be involved in the outreach evangelistic ministry from June 1st 2016. But he will be available for the GCI ministry ahead, especially in organizing. We expect one of our faculties (like Capt. Cherian) to stay at the GCI Kottayam Centre and manage the affairs Deepak was caring and to assist Mr. Cherian Zachariah.
Praise the Lord for all the blessings of the past and pray for the future plans.
