Beloved in Christ,
Greetings in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I take this opportunity to thank all of you for your prayers and support given to the youth board in the previous years.
This year youth board is conducting the Triennial camp during Onam holidays from Thursday 26th August to Sunday 29th August.

We expect at least 400 youths to participate from all our parishes in Kerala and the estimated expense will be around Rs 2 lakhs. Rs 50 is collected towards registration fees, for deserving candidates it will not be an hindrance in attending the camp. The amount collected from our parishes will not be sufficient, so I request your liberal contribution towards this need. I hope and pray that you will do your best for which the Almighty will reward you.
It has been said that more spiritual growth takes place during a camp than the whole rest of the year put together. God has a way of getting a hold of lives at camp like no place else on earth. There are a wide variety of factors that contribute to that including: removal of distractions, being surrounded by God’s creation, focused times of worship, daily Bible teaching, living in community, and many others. Majority of people who come to Christ (or people who make a decision for full-time Christian service, etc.) made their decision at camps. Pray that this camp may be a decision making camp.
The contribution be sent to Treasurer, Board for Youth Work towards 2010 camp fund.
May God bless you and keep you.
Yours in His Service,
Rev. Shaji Alexander
Secretary, Board for Youth Work
