Dear friends,

Greeting of Peace, Joy and a new start!

Thanks for being with us in this ministry of intercession. The intentions may appear ordinary; those who approach us may be few. True. I invite you to multiply the same in hundreds/ thousands and pray for as many as possible. Pray repeatedly for these people.

Thanks for your generosity. Thinking of the other makes one better! Helps to forget self!!
