2014 April NEWSLETTER
Message from our vicar
“The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace.” -  Numbers 6:24-26.

Dearly Beloved in Christ,

The resurrected Christ is the foundation of our faith. He came to the world and died for our sins, defeated our sins and death experiences and pointed out the ultimate victory through the resurrection. Once a scholar wrote about Jesus, “He who is the Bread of Life began His ministry hungering. He who is the Water of Life ended His ministry thirsting”. As a faith community we have to love our Lord Jesus Christ through our life and ministry. Wish you all a great Easter blessings.
   
This is my last message as the vicar of this parish through this column. I am writing this with a heart of gratitude and thanksgiving. Our God Almighty empowered us within our limitations, to serve this parish for the last three years. I consider this as a God given opportunity in my ministry. I express my sincere thanks to Most Rev. Dr. Joseph Mar Thoma Metropolitan and the Hon. Episcopal Synod of the Mar Thoma Church for giving me this opportunity. My ministry under the guidance and leadership of Rt. Rev. Dr. Geevarghese Mar Theodosius, the Diocesan Episcopa is very inspiring and empowering to me. The fellowship and neighborhood living with Rev. K. E. Geevarghese and Kochamma was also a blessing.
   
Long Island Mar Thoma Church is a blessed church in all aspects and we were privileged to experience this blessing from the very first day of our ministry in this land. We have plenty of memorable events with you.  We praise God for all your prayers, support and care rendered on us. We thankfully recognize your love for us. We really enjoyed our ministry in this parish. Each and every member of this parish is unique to me; we love you, and respect you. Let us continue this great fellowship through our prayers.  We thank you for all the Office Bearers, Executive Committee members, and all those who took the responsibility of different organization during our ministry here. To serve this parish during the Silver Jubilee year was also a blessing. May God bless you and guide you in your future journey of faith. Also we beseech your prayers for our ministry in future also.
   
We are transferred to Nellikala Mar Thoma Church in Kerala. We are planning to leave from New York on April 28, 2014. Kindly pray for our journey back to Kerala. You can reach me at my email abbinuachen@gmail.com. You all are welcomed to our new place.
   
Our newly appointed vicar Rev. Shinoy Joseph will take the charge of this parish from May 2014. I welcome my friend Shinoy Achen and family to this parish and wish them a blessed ministry in Long Island Mar Thoma Church.
   
Let me conclude with the final greetings of St. Paul, to the church in Corinth, “Finally, brothers and sisters rejoice! Strive for full restoration, encourage one another, be of one mind, live in peace. And the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet one another with a holy kiss….. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all”. 

May God bless us all.

With Love and Prayers,
Rev. A. B. Binu
