“The LORD has done great things for us and we are glad.” (Psalm 126:3). Its with great joy and gratitude to our Lord Jesus that we place on record the 10th Anniversary of the Good Shepherd International Church in Abu Dhabi. It was conducted on Saturday evening 6th of June, 2015 at the Evangelical Church Centre Main Hall.
The programme opened with prayer by Pr. John Jacob and the GSIC Choir led gathering with a few worship songs. Pr. Bijo B. Jacob George welcomed the gathering and introduced the GSMI- its genesis, vision and mission. Br. Lordson Antony, a Christian singer from Kerala was invited to lead in praise and worship. He was able to engage the gathering with a few special numbers that helped bond a nice time of worship.
The overall activities of the Church and the Ministry, as well as the growth over the past Ten years was presented by Pr. Thomas P. Mathew. It was a good time to reminiscence the past years as we looked back to thank God for the various ways He had led us as a ministry/church here and in the various places He had taken us.
The magazine, ‘Shofar‘ was released on the occasion and distributed to all present. Several felicitations and a prayer of blessing by all the pastors who had gathered, graced the occasion. Around 250 people attended the Thanksgiving Programme after which a time of fellowship of the food helped meeting and greeting one another.
We praise GOD for His enabling grace that led us thus far and look forward with renewed strength for all that He would do through us!
