On Sunday 19 April Mission Manager Immanuel again had the pleasant duty of representing Yesuway Jeevan Mission at a baptismal service, and presented each of the candidates with a new Bible.
This week it was the Fellowship of Blessed Hope church at Ramapuram, a south-western suburb of Chennai in which are located several large hospitals, many large IT companies and many educational organisations including two university campuses.
The pastor at Ramapuram is Pastor D. Solomon Rajan and on this occasion he had the joy of baptising five of his congregation. The church membership consists of 33 families or 80 people and 70 were present for the baptismal service.
Missionary Miss Beryl Hollis was instrumental in planting the church many years ago and the present building complex – church sanctuary with manse above – was opened and dedicated in 2000 by the late Rev George Teshera.
