I found this picture of a presentation at Karuni in India. It brought back some great memories. One of my memories is the silly enjoyment I took at each one of these events, in my name being a bit bigger than John Fales on the signs that graced the proceedings. Senseless, but I got a kick out of it. Chairman of the Board was a big deal. I felt like Frank Sinatra.
This was the opening of a sewing training center for displaced folks from the tsunami.
Anyway my pride in getting my name up on a poster and having it bigger than Rev. Fale’s also reminded me of Rev. Joseph Samuel. He was the president of the India Evangelical Lutheran Church at the time I was there. He was an example of service and humility that I found inspiring. His health has not been the best and Mr. Ravi Jesupatham who has been a contributor to these pages notified me and asked for prayers. My prayers have ascended and will continue to do so. I pray that you will pray for this kind and humble man too.
