CFC In Kannamaly Rise To The Occasion

When man works with God, miracles happen. This was the powerful message the team got that victorious weekend of August 28 to 30, 2015 in Kannamaly when three programs ran simultaneously despite having limited resources.


Eighteen couples participated in the Marriage Enrichment II (MER II) which was conducted from Saturday afternoon to Sunday evening. Christian Life Program sessions were held at the same time, with 14 couples taking part. The team had to stagger a few of the MER sessions to adjust to the CLP sessions which ran the entire weekend. The CLP graduates were formed into two households, and they held their first household prayer meeting a week later. They are now being assisted by the more senior CFC.


The Youth Camp, on the other hand, was facilitated by Youth for Christ fulltime missionaries Roseberry Dulla and Benedict Landicho, who were indeed picked by God and sent to Kochi to give their heart and soul to the Camp. The evening sessions went past 9:00 PM but the participants had no difficulty in staying on. Twentythree youth finished the weekend activity.


As the participants are high school and college students, they are very conversant in English, making interaction between facilitators and participants quite easy.


It was heartwarming to note that the MER II participants have agreed to form the next CLP team in October in Fort Kochi in Fr. Peter's Parish. On the other hand, two of the YFC Camp participants have already made up their minds to go on full time mission after their graduation next year.


And while God blessed the team’s efforts abundantly, the contribution of those who served made God’s love more tangible. For one, Fr. Josy was fully immersed in CFC community and went all out to ensure that the preparations as well as the arrangements of the venue, food administrative and spiritual support were well taken care of. Benson, Suma and Greatan gave their time and talent as speakers. The senior CFC members of Kannamaly gave talks and made all the arrangements for food, transport and accommodation for Benedict and Roseberry. CFC Kuwait provided financial assistance.


As of this writing, the conduct of another CLP has been finalized in Fort Kochi from 9th to 11th October. Fr. Raphy, Parish Priest of St. Joseph's Church, Palluruthy, which is about 3 kilometers from Edakochi, wants a CLP as soon as possible. The team is trying to work out the logistics and the composition of the service team for this. There may be two more CLPs expected before the end of the year. Truly, God is really working miracles and those who serve must rise to the occasion. (Hector Poppen, CFC India Country Head)
