- Dear All,
First of all, thank you Lord for your servant, our dear Rev.Dr.Prince Mannathoor Achen.
Nobody in this world is born as a leader, a soldier, an orator, an educator, a singer, a writer or any of that kind of an individual. Think of the thorny path they traveled to reach the peak. Visualize the efforts of a mountaineer; how many times he/she slipped and fell, how many times he/she got injured, how many instances the mind whispered to give up and return home; insults and accusations by fellow beings were not rare, long long period of sleeplessness, loneliness and discouragement, the nature he/she was born in stood against as tall as one could imagine and so on...
As far as I now dear Prince Achen, the path he traveled was not at all a comfortable one. One thing for sure, the Mighty One is holding Achen with the encouragement to proceed. Carry on dear Achen...it was His mission that brought you to this world. It is His love that is wrapping around you and safeguarding you for His purpose all these years. Praise & glory only belong to Him, Amen.
A humble note of reason for responding to the subjected message: "We should be brave to acknowledge the goodness in others and we should not fan out the news about a stain or minus in others but to pray for God's intervention".
With best regards,
Chev.Babu Jacob Nadayil,
