Quarterly Report - Nov 2017

posted 12 Nov 2017, 13:04 by Simon Morgan
Dear Brothers and sisters,
After a long wait, there came blessing of rains last month. Most of the agricultural fields in Telangana received good rains and the farming lands had a revival. At home in Moinabad, the water situation has improved both in our campus and outside in the village, drinking water is available from the bore-wells.

Stephen's wedding went well and Stephen and Shalini are staying in a rented accommodation near Carol and Diana.  Stephen is working at the same printing press and Shalini is trying for a job. Back at home, now we have only 3 children, Latha, Pranavi and Aakash, going to the local school.  Ruth, Hannah, Pooja, Peter and Benhur are in junior colleges in city. They are doing well. Beulah obtained a permission from her hospital to do a Post Graguate in Nursing and she is planning to join M.Sc Nursing while she is working.

Sheela is getting married on the 29th of November and Sheena on the 30th of Nov.2017. Both marriages are to be in Kerala to grooms from that state. We specially thank the brotherhood for years of support and help
to bring them up at the home and now as they are entering family life, we request for your kind prayers for them. 

Myself and two representatives from Shunem home attended a meeting convened by the women and Child Welfare Department of the Government of Telangana recently and the officers explained the new rules and regulations for running a child care facility in the State of Telangana. There were about 80 representatives from various non-government organisations who operate homes for poor children. We are studying the Government conditions and rules in detail to see whether we are able to run the homes in a Christian atmosphere with Christian education as a part of the home activities. Anyway the existing children will be
cared for and be supported to complete their education in the next few years.

Once again we Thank the brotherhood and the Sydney committee for the support and prayers for the Moinabad families and the children.

Your Brother In Christ, Mathews.
