“TO GOD BE THE GLORY
Dear beloved in Christ,
Greetings in the name of our living God.
As per Proverbs 12:10 “The righteous care for the needs of their animals”, you have cared for the needs of our poor people
You are the righteous in the sight of God and these poor ones they are absolutely in suffering for food, in this unfortunate lock-down duration. God has set up you, His loving generation to feed them. The worth of your contribution (Rs. 6000/- Six thousand only) is still alive in their bodies.
There are so many people living a luxurious life, even in these critical economic conditions (Proverbs 11:17), but you had a thought about helping the poor and sent food to these simple people.
We pray that according to Proverbs 11:25, God will bless you and send prosperity. As Psalm 112:8 says, you have given your gift of food to these poor background people.
Your great help will add more strength to these people to follow the way of Jesus Christ strongly in future.
We believe God will send all His goodness to you regularly in your home.
Yours loving brother in Christ,
M Paul Sundar Raj & Team
ACCI – Khagaria, Bihar”
