from the pastor
My dear People, Roshini and I have had a terrific time here in Sheffield. One thrill was getting a surprise visit from Ishaaq, on his way back from a work conference in Oslo, Norway. While Elishba engaged Roshini with some manicuring, I was sent to answer the door. Looking through the thick glass, I saw an Indian sort of face, and when I opened the door, they say that I said in a high-pitched voice, “Ishaaq! What are you doing here?” After ushering him in, I called for Roshini, and with a very grave face I pointed her to the drawing room. She went in thinking that Joe had had an accident while outside, and on seeing Ishaaq, she became very emotional, and Joe had a great time capturing it all on video. Ishaaq was with us for one week. That was a fantastic bonus—especially, being able to go to church with both our children, and Joe and Sophie. Wish Jess, Priya and Alisha could have also been there. Though we have enjoyed our family time, our thoughts have turned toward all of you, again and again, and have been feeling “bad” about not being there whenever we heard of any crisis among the members (Bunny’s accident, Usha’s operation, Arman’s injury). I am grateful that Rev J T Raja and the ministry team have been consistently stepping into the gap and providing the needed pastoral care. Elishba’s convocation is on the 19th, we leave on 23rd and will be back on the 24th. See you soon. Pastor Kuru
