Dearly Beloved in Christ,

Greetings in the precious name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,
Thank God for the blessings we received from God last month which helped us to lead a joyful healthy life witnessing Christ in our worship and church activities. I express my gratitude and love to all the parishioners who have cooperated in all the programs which were held in our parish in January. I request everyone's participation in all the activities of the Parish and the Organizations of the church.

Another Great Lenten season has arrived.

Through fasting, we should realize that the mission of our Lord is accomplished through the cross, and that the cross is not only for meditation, but for turning it into a life experience.

"Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. He answered, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God" Matthew 4:4.The Lenten season that leads us through spiritual purification, allowing us to renew our faith and draw closer to the path of cross. Lent is also an opportunity to contemplate what our Lord really did for us on the Cross. We should unite with the Lord by meditating on his suffering and death on the cross.

It is said that the joy of fasting is that the Lord, who is a good physician, is relieved from the disease of sin and gives healing and forgiveness to sinners. May this Lenten season be a time of spiritual growth and a deeper understanding of God's love and grace. May the merciful God bless us all as a parish abundantly during these days of Lent.
May God Bless us all abundantly.

V. T. Thomas Achen.
