Quarterly Report August 2017

posted 11 Aug 2017, 18:18 by Simon Morgan
The  summer is over and comparatively  cooler days have arrived  for the relief of Hyderabadis. By God’s grace, we could survive with the latest bore-well during the summer for all our water needs. The monsoon was weak but the bore-well showed improvement in water level.  Now again after a few week’s gap, the rains started. This is a good sign as far as water and land are concerned. Unfortunately, the central government new tax rules has caused  an increase in the prices of food, clothing and other items.  With all these difficulties, our God is so gracious to provide for us in our needs.

We have five junior college students who are all attending colleges in City.  Junior college is equivalent to 11th and 12th year in other country's educational systems.  Two of the older girls who have previously completed tertiary studies, Betsica and Shirisha, have completed their internship and now they are probationary nurses in a corporate hospital. Once they obtain their certificates, they will be absorbed as staff nurses. Anusha is in the second year of a post-graduate degree in social work.
As the rains had arrived Lillykutty, Aaron and Benjamin  have used the backyard for a vegetable garden. The plants are coming up well and we expect a good produce from the garden. In the recent rains, there was a small damage to the stone work near the compound wall behind Charis and now it is being repaired. 
God willing, three marriages are planned towards the end of this year. Stephen in October followed by Sheena and Sheela in November. Sheela and Sheena have to get their inheritance which was promised. Christy has taken a contract Job of the Tata Institute Hyderabad, in giving computer training for rural government school teachers. This gives him an opportunity to visit interior villages and help teachers in setting up computer labs and using them for teaching. As he is appointed in Rangareddy district, he can stay at home and travel around in the district.   
 Very sadly I have to report that Prakash Harry, who grew up in the home, is now 30 years old and has had a history of mental illness, has been missing from the home for  2 months.  We have tried everything to find him and yet he is still not traced in spite of the sleepless nights we spent at places reported to have seen him by our friends. We do not loose heart in  praying for his safe return. May the Lord help us. Kindly continue to pray for Prakash’s return.
Thanking you, yours In the Service, MATHEWS.
