GREETINGS
FROM REV. ELLIS & TEAM
Dear friends Easter Greetings from CFM. Hope you enjoyed the presence of the lord in your Easter service. CFM, CLCC, GCH, and all our co-workers, network churches and my family members are praying for your family and ministries. Hope the risen lord will be with us to conquer and move forward towards the Vision, Goals and Plans that he has set for you. May the Lord bless you abundantly!

ORDINATION SERVICE & PASTOR’S CONFERENCE

On March the 16th we had a great ordination Service with Rev. Joseph Osborn Overseer of KLCI – London. 18 Gods servants were ordained on that day as a minister of CFM Network Churches. In addition to that we had 130 pastors who attended the conference that day. We focused to encourage the pastors and motivated them to multiply the churches. By the support of the lord we provided lunch and bus fare to the all participants. The anointing of the lord was eminent during the conference. We thank God for what God is doing through CFM Network Churches. CFM is also grateful to Rev. Joseph Osborn and his team for their sacrifice and all their efforts to bless us. We are totally privileged.

March 18th we conducted leadership programme for all our local leaders. Our church deacons, deaconess, Sunday school teachers, reception team members and volunteers participated. Rev Osborn empowered us with powerful leadership teachings. It was very useful to drive the ministry according to His will and by His Word. Evening Revival meetings started from the 19th to the 20th March. The total body of Christ were revived by these meetings. Every member of the church was edified and as a result we see more people in prayer.

SILVER JUBILEE
By the Grace of God Rev. Ellis & Rachel completed 25 years in our marital life. My son Sam Ellis was conducted the whole programme. Pastor. Osborn was our chief Guest with brother John Nganga, Ratna John and Alex. The Head Quarters church arranged the whole programme. Ellis and Rachel renewed their vows to each other. Pastors Ellis & Rachel commented that their 25th celebration was extravagant than their actual wedding day. Extended regards and thank you to all who sent greeting on that day. From the words of Pastor Ellis, “We praise God for all His goodness for past 25 years. We thank God for my Sam, Shiny, all my family members, my church family and all friends. With Tears I remember my dad Duraisamy and my mum Thavamani even though they are in Gods home they are in my heart. I praise God for my parents life.”

LIFE CENTER
Visit to the Life Centre at K. Poondi Village with Rev. Osborn & Team

“Many people were delivered from curse, disease and bondage under the mighty power of Jesus.”

We had a great evening at K.Poondi Life Center on March 21 with Rev. Joseph Osborn and team. We enjoyed the long drive through the countryside and reached K.Poondi village where the life centre is located. On route we also enjoyed fresh tender coconut and traditional meal on banana leaf. As we sensed in our spirits that the village is highly dominated and influenced by evil powers, myself and the team prayed a warfare prayer walking around the village. We bound and rebuked all demonic interference in Jesus name. Later on we had a lovely welcome by our children from the free tuition centre project, which was then followed by the planting of a coconut tree in the Life Centre garden. Later in the evening under the Good news to the poor project we proclaimed the gospel of Jesus Christ to the village people. More than 40 people came for that meeting. Every one enjoyed and joined with Rev. Osborn and his team in praise and worship. Many people were delivered from curse, disease and bondage under the mighty power of Jesus.

Bangalore Fasting Prayer Meetings:
April 12th myself, my wife Rachel and along with my daughter Shiny went to Bangalore to preach at the Full Gospel Assemblies of God Church . My friend and loving Pastor Rev. Paul Thangaiah invited and hosted us. God used me powerfully for the glory of god and edification of the church. Pastor Paul’s hospitality and love was unforgettable.

Good Friday & Easter Celebrations

April 22nd from 10:00 am to 1:30 pm we had our fasting prayer meeting with meditation of crucifixion. Our members were praying with tears for each other and for the nations. Our Easter Service started at 8:30 am with powerful worship. Rev Ellis gave resurrection message and he encouraged the people to salute all the missionaries from all over the world who carried the burden and did missionary work in India. Every one realized the missionaries sacrifice and commitment.

In our last newsletter we request you to pray for the extension construction work of GCH. Thank God that the work has progressed up to the 1st floor roof level. Kindly pray for the needs to be completed before end of May. Details of the construction are 900 sq. ft. hall and two extra toilets with bath room.

| APRIL 2011

All of our branch and network churches are strengthening and edifying after our regional visits with Rev Raven Nair and Ps. Chantal and also by the effect of Rev. Joseph Osborn & team’s Conference. Every village pastor has a zeal for God and committed to do a great thing for kingdom. New souls are adding in our churches. Through our ACM life centers we are seeing great breakthrough in the communities. We are seeing our dear lord’s countenance through our free tuition centre children and Grace Home children’s smiles. Our kid’s never forget to pray for you all. Our mission, vision and its needs are growing. I hope and pray that the lord God will increase our CFM friends to fulfil His great task. I sincerely thank all our partners and well-wishers who stand by us and support us in every step of our journey. Together we can do all things in Christ Jesus. Amen!
