Today the Eu & EGF met for a half day
morning retreat in our church.
This mission is very similar to
IVF (Inter Varsity Fellowship.
We 've been a part of it since the past 35 years or more.
University students from various disciplines , working
people and married couples with young children
came together to worship the Lord
and have fun and fellowship

This young lady gave a powerful testimony.
She once belonged to another religion.
Her father was encouraged by a Christian to read
the Psalms from the Bible.
He was deeply impressed by the 23rd Psalm
"The Lord is my shepherd,
I shall not want".
He pondered over the concept of
God being a shepherd, this was
absolutely alien to his religious background.
As he read more of the Bible ,
he became convinced of the reality
of Christ and accepted Him
He encouraged his wife and children to read the Bible
and one by one they all
put their trust in Christ.
When this family made an open
declaration of their faith
they faced tumultuous opposition
from relatives and their
high caste wealthy community.
They were completely ostracized and denigrated.
This hurt them deeply but they
held on to their faith in the face
They attend a church which
comprises of people who have turned to Christ
from various religions.
They all are learning and
