General

In 2009 for Christmas, we visited KGF and Chickballapur and distributed gifts-Rice, Dhal, Sugar, Oil, Shirts and Sarees. Due to unrest in Andra Pradesh we were not able to visit Madanapalli. Subsequently, planned 15th Jan 2010.  Mission is everyone’s responsibility.  Some members actively participlated, others supported, some prayed for the work, only God blesses and substains the development process.  We are very grateful to the members of the Cathedral who have generously provided resources for providing the X-mas Gifts.

A combined one-day training programme for some of the St. Mark’s misison enablers and K.C.D Mission workers was held at St. Marks’ on 3rd Sep-2009.
