MGOCSM Missions 2010: St. George Balikagram in Pune, India

The MGOCSM of North American conducted its 2010 Missions Trip at St. George Balikagram in Pune, India. The group consisted of Rev. Dn. Shaun Mathew, Rev. Dn. Saju Varghese, Liju Varghese (IL), Rosy Luke (NY), Blessit George (NY), Sneha Kalayilparampil (NJ), Justin Cherian (PA), Jobin Varughese (IL), and Alan Alex (TX).

The missions team prayed together every morning, noon, and night with new English Shimo translations, met with several parish MGOCSM's to get a feel for the youth movement in India, met many bishops and workers of the church to learn from their great experiences, and most importantly spent time with the girls at St. George Balikagram in Pune. The group also visited several missions in Bombay and Roha and spent a week on an Orthodox pilgrimage visiting significant sites throughout Kerala.

Thanks to all the supporters of the 2010 Mission. Please continue to pray for the Holy Church's mission work. The Missions Team hopes the recap video below inspires you just as the mission trip inspired the group.
