Amount expected: Rs. 2000,000/-
Loving brothers and sisters in Christ,
Greetings to you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ
“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth” – 3 John 4
Thanks be to God who helped the Sunday School Board to work in the church and in the mission fields in the year 2009 by training the children in the Word of God and helping them to walk in that truth. We take this opportunity to thank all who helped this ministry by prayers and finance.
The Board is involved in conducting Sunday School Annual camps, annual exams in Kerala and Bahya Kerala, centralized competition, mission tours concentrating children in parishes, V.B.S. and Mobile V.B.S. in various centres, organizing V.B.S. Directors training, sending birthday cards to the children, giving certificates and felicitating Sunday School teachers who have completed 60 years of age and organizing children’s Bible Clubs in schools and fields by sending missionaries.
In order to do the above mentioned works we need large funds. Therefore we have separated February 14th as Sunday School Day. Keeping these large needs of the Board in mind we request you to prayerfully contribute as much as you can by offering it during the worship offertory time on February 14th. We request you to co-operate with us by sending the amount collected from the covers and the offertory on that day to the office. Sunday School Headmasters and teachers should kindly take earnest effort in distributing the covers to each and every family. Though there is no Sunday school being conducted in certain parishes we request even those parishes to participate in collecting and sending the Sunday School Day offertory for advancing the works among our children.

We expect to conduct 40 V.B.S’s this year through which we can meet about 4000 children with the gospel of which the board meets the financial need of 8 V.B.S.

From the Mission Fields:
Evg. C. P. Markose is concentrating the works in Gudalur in Tamil Nadu. During last October 2nd the 3rd one day program was conducted here and about 200 participated in it. In this session many of them accepted Jesus as their personal saviour and others rededicated their lives.
In Kerala Miss Mary Thomas and Miss. Kala V.V. are stationed at Vadakkenchery and are coordinating the work in Thrissur- Palakkad centre. Mr. Binson takes care of Keezhilam centre, Miss. Sony Skariah and Miss. Reni are stationed at Mallassery in Pathanamthitta and Miss Bindumol Varghese and Miss. Simi John stays in Karikkam and looks after the work in Kottarakara – Kadampanad centre. Through these ministries about 900 children are met with the gospel every week. In the year 2009 God enabled us to begin two new fields that are in Keezhilam centre and in Kottarakara – Kadampanad centre. We are looking for sponsors and those interested are requested to contact the Board secretary. To support a missionary we need Rs. 2500 and for a mission field it is Rs. 5000. We appreciate your prayerful contribution.

We request all to pray for this ministry among children and support whatever way you can. God may bless you with great rewards.
