Message to the Diaspora Community

Message to the Diaspora Members of the Marthoma Syrian Church and Orthodox Syrian Church in Malaysia 

“Behold, I will do a new thing…” Isaiah 43:19 (NKJV)

Friends, this message comes as a reminder for each one of us, 2nd, 3rd, 4th generation of diaspora community; for us to (i) remember the sacrifices of our forefathers (ii) be thankful to God for His blessings; as we anticipate new blessings as God promised to “do a new thing” in our lives.

Recorded this message during my recent ministry trip to Kerala at Karukachal, Changanassery, Kerala

God’s blessing for a fellowship with Thomas Mar Timotheos Episcopa  at Olivet Aramana, Thittamel, Chengannur, Kerala

My acquaintance with Mar Timotheos Episcopa was in 1998 while Thirumeni assumed the helmship of the Malaysia-Singapore-Australia Diocese. It was God’s divine intervention for a renewal of friendship after a gap of 20 years.

Inspire of busy schedule, Thirumeni with the benevolent nature that signifies His Grace, with all smiles enquired the well-being of a few members by their names.

It was my blessing to have stayed at Thirumeni’s aramana.

Something significant happened when Thirumeni granted me a audience with His Grace The Metropitan at Poolathen.

I believe something so powerful happened in that room that I feel in the spirit of having endued with the spirit of reformation that birthed the Marthoma Syrian Church.

God’s blessing for a fellowship with Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma Metropolitan at Poolatheen, Thiruvalla, Kerala

My wife and I are truly grateful to God for extending us to Kerala for ministry, where it all started at the land of our forefathers.

    28 فَقَدِ استَحسَنَ الرُّوحُ القُدُسُ وَنَحنُ أنْ لا نُثقِلَ عَلَيكُمْ بِما هُوَ أكثَرُ مِنْ هَذِهِ الأُمُورِ الضَّرُورِيَّةِ:

    29 لا يَنْبَغِي أنْ تَتَناوَلوا الطَّعامَ المُقَدَّمَ لِلأوثانِ، وَالحَيواناتِ المَخنُوقَةَ وَالدَّمَ، وَأنْ تَبتَعِدوا عَنِ الزِّنا.

    فَإذا حَفِظتُمْ أنفُسَكُمْ مِنْ هَذِهِ الأُمُورِ، تُحسِنُونَ صُنْعاً.عافاكُمُ اللهُ.
