Storm Fruit and Flowers

There have been quite a few dust and rain storms in our area during the past week.It was a great loss to the mango farmers as they lost tons of unripe fruit, but a boon to the pickle and preserve industry.
Here are some mangoes in our tree

In the dust storm a tree outside our wall fell. We got a bunch of flowers. They don 't last very long.I don 't know what they are called in English.In hindi they are called Medina.


Later on I got news that Daddy Jeyapaul has gone Home to be with the Lord, Mummy Jeyapaul preceded him by two weeks. It is a double shock and bereavement for the family. Please remember them in prayer.the four children, Prem, Janet, Dolly and Anand.

Daddy was the chief engineer of Western Railways , a man of God. He was on the board of several mission organizations and President of the Union of Evangelical Students of India, which is a sister organization of Inter Varsity Fellowship. He will be missed a lot.

21 Fertilize my soul:

Dear Father, Please be with Prem, Dolly, Janet and Anand. Comfort them, and give them Your peace. Thank You for this faithful servant, who lived his life for You.

Hi Amrita,
We are so sad to hear about Prem's Dad! My hubby had a chat with Prem on the phone a few days ago and said to me that he sounded like such a nice guy.

Kinza is in the middle of her India project at school so we are thinking about you ALL the time! AND we are learning a LOT! We're all involved in this one!

Praying for the family Amrita.

Hope the dust storms didn't cause too much trouble!

A life to be celebrated, a life lived for God. May the God of all comfort surround your family at this time.
Love, Sita

The same problems face also the farmers in my region.
It has a lot of days it rains and they begin the problems to become big!
We pray in the God, and we remembered always the all persons that left!

What love Amrita!

Wow about the dust storms... and the flowers are very colorful. I will be praying for the family in their time of grief. It's good to know that He knew the Lord, but I'm sure He will be missed very much. God bless :)

Dear Amrita
...I haven't been here so long that I didn't realize about Prem's Daddy and Mummy Jeyapaul.
I know that you are happy that he and she are in heaven but I still think that it is so sad. Just imagine that there are two big empty spaces for Prem and the dear family.
I will pray for their sorrow dear Amrita.....Love Terry
