    Rev. Bipin Macwan,Sir, my name is Girish Purushottamdas Patel. My father's name was Purushotamdas U Patel (Advocate).We used to live at Batuk Nivas, Umed Bhuvan, Mission Road, Nadiad. I am not sure if you know our family? I was student in Nadiad Mission School when our head master was Mr. Gilbert. Am I going too far? I want to send this email to you because I do not have any contact with any of my christian friends who were my classmate when I was 1955 to 1961. Also how are things going down in your neighborhood? My brother Pulin's good friend name Arthur was living right across from the Curch. Dr. JK was the superintendent of mission methodist hospital. Headmaster Gilbert's family still there? May be I am asking too much. Please pardon me for that. I was trying to remind myself and my childhood school with all of my friends with whom I grow up. I see that you have done lot of renovations to Church. Any other renovathions you plan doing next? How is mission Hospital? Is it still in operational condition? And also the school?Sir I wish all very well. Stay safe. Be aware of wearing Face Mask and Social distance between each person. Good luck for everything you do. God Bless all of Christian Family of Nadiad. I love you all.Sincerely,Girish P Patel

    Dear Brothers and Sister ,Why our voice is not being heard ?Why we are silent over Antidemocratic scenario ? Why our Gospel of revelation is not in full force ? Remember the time when Pope Paul II came in India in 1998 .Remember His words of conversion of India and South Asia .So Jesus is never delayed or postponed .He was alive .He is alive .More prayers for Holy Spirit are needed now .Do continue to spread Gospel all over India .Jesus is coming back .
