Mission Manager Immanuel likes to visit all of Yesuway Jeevan Mission’s ministry partners from time to time, as such a visit was a condition of the partnership contract entered into by all of the partners. In early January Immanuel asked Rev S R Paul Aruldoss, (pictured at right) a good friend of the Mission and a former President of the Advent Christian Conference of India who is currently pastor of the ACCI’s church at Saidapet, to visit Pastor Pani and his team in Odisha. It was Rev Paul Aruldoss who introduced Pastor Pani to the Mission when he was ACCI President. Our brother was very happy to accept this invitation and be able to meet and encourage Pastor Pani once again. Pastor Paul Aruldoss was able to deliver some TREASURES in the Odia language which had been sent from the United States.
Pastor Pani and Rev Paul Aruldoss and other members of the Odisha team spent several days visiting some of the areas in which they minister, and Pastor Pani sent reports and pictures as follows…
