Pravaham @IrvinePres – January 2013 News
Posted January 29, 2013on:
Yesterday, January 28, Christie, Marilyn and I decorated the big bulletin board in our church with Pravaham – see pictures attached. A week or so ago, IPC missions team had invited me to put up a display of Pravaham for the month of February. The bulletin board, about 96 inches wide (length) and 40 inches tall (height) is located in the hallway of our Jenny Hart Education Building. There’s a lot of traffic during the week from parents of the children going to pre-school. On Sunday there’s the children and adult Sunday school classes. A lot of people will see these pictures of Pravaham. I’m very grateful to our Missions Team for inviting us to share about Pravaham via this board for the second year. I was truly blessed to have Marilyn and Christie’s artistic talents. I’ve attached a few pictures of the display we put together and hope you will enjoy them.
We divided the board into three themes and the first (green background) features the art activities of the girls. We were also able to add the most recent picture of Dr. Vivian Churness, Anne and Pr. Devadoss with the current Class taken just this past weekend during their visit (Vivian and Anne were guests from San Pedro who visited Pravaham – their story was blogged separately and I will be printing a copy of their letter describing the visit and adding it to the display board). The middle panel (background yellow) showcases the success story of Priya, the gold medallist. The final panel shows pictures of the 2012 graduation, girls rehearsing for the ceremony, etc..
All photos (except one) were taken and contributed by Christie. Thanks, Christie! If you look closely enough you will even see that Uncle Samuel made it into the display; Bishop Ananda Rao Samuel was the founder of Pravaham. The title display “Where in the Word is Pravaham?” is part of a poster that Jon made for their family presentation at IPC last year. On Jan 6, 2012 Jon who is the Irvine Pres. missions team chair and his beautiful family – Jennifer, Trisha, and Christina – shared about their visit to Pravaham in November 2011.
While we were doing the display and close to when we were getting finished I started to look around and noticed that there was another display right across from ours. Guess what it was titled? “Where in the world is Flat Stanley?” Now, how cool is that? Is our God awesome or what?
