The church at Zamin Pallavaram is one of the older churches of the Advent Christian Conference of India – it is 60 years old. Its present membership is 50 families – about 150 people attend services regularly with up to 200 at special occasions. Rev. Paul Stenny is the Pastor – pictured centre in left picture below.
27 April was indeed a special occasion for the church as they witnessed the baptism of three men and two ladies – below left. One of the men and the two ladies were from Hindu backgrounds and the other two men were from Christian families. The Mission presented a new Bible to each of those who was baptised.
The usual custom is that newly baptised candidates have their first communion immediately after their baptism, and the right hand picture shows this happy and significant part of the service.
Please praise the Lord for these new members of His family and pray that they will grow in grace and in the knowledge of their Saviour and Lord.
