    Great work, all good wishes and pray that many more useful resources can be added to it. We will introduce this to many more. Thanks

  20. Wish all blessings to your endeavor. Definitely help many to learn the life history of missionaries and specially the pioneers of the Mar Thoma Church.

  21. Praise God for your endeavour, this is an asset to the sabha as the records of the same are either not stored or if stored no one knows about the same, or where to get the same from. I appreciate your hard work behind this endeavour. May God Bless you and use you for the kingdom of God by spreading the witness story of the yester years. Thank you once again. Can we do something thru the Sabha Website, if interested please share your suggestions wherein we can do the same through the Sabha Website also. As I am incharge of the website, I can do the maximum I can to bring out the same to the Youths of our Church. thanking You.

  30. Dear Advt.John Nellor,
    Appreciate Your valuable and very essential informative web site for the new generation.

  31. പ്രിയ തമ്പി ,
    ഈ ശ്രമത്തെ അഭി നന്ദിക്കുന്നു.I had a quick look at the design and content of the site.Looks very concise and informative.Two minutes introduction, since it is very brief will open the window for further reading on those personalities.
    I suggest to expand the scope by including those politicians who contributed for the freedom fight , like T.M.Varghese , poets like Puthenkavu Mathen Tharakan etc…

  35. Dear Adv. Nalloor,

    A much worthy and dedicated effort to give awareness to all Sabha members(inclusive of all ordained and non ordained ).Sure that all these contents will give more awareness of the realities which are purposely hidden from the Church History even..Good effort.

    Sir, Pray Almighty to give you strength and wisdom to keep doing so for the betterment and uplift of the Sabha as we are getting weaker and weaker in the real Christian ways of life .

    May God Bless you.
