May I take this time to thank you for your generous assistance for construction of my house. I was really disheartened at the inability to construct a house for our family. My house was in a dilapidated condition. I could not afford to spare any amount from the sundry cooly works I have. I was literally striving hard to meet the expenses of my family. It was at that critical stage that you included me in the housing scheme of Vijayapuram Social Service Society.
Dear Father, I do not have words to express our gratitude to you. Only what we can do is to pray for you. You will be strengthened to do more and more good to people of our strata. May many more families experience your love and concern and support.
We extend our sincere love and gratitude to Vijayapuram Social Service Society and the Bishop of our Diocese . We will surely remember you in our daily prayers.
Thanking you from the bottom of our heart.
