Greetings from Rev.Owen Roberts - President, Synod of Pentecostal Churches
I am delighted to send my greetings on the occasion of the Birth Centenary of Pastor John Vasu and the Platinum Jubilee of the Madras Pentecostal Assembly.
I praise God for the ministry of Pastor John Vasu whom the Lord used to bring unity among the Pentecostal churches in Chennai. Through his leadership the first fellowship of Pentecostal Pastors was formed in the 1950's.
At this time when the Lord has graciously enabled us to form the Synod of Pentecostal Churches , we remember all the pioneers of the Pentecostal movement in India who had laid the foundation for the formation of pentecostal fellowships in our country.
As the President of the Synod of Pentecostal Churches , I thank God for Pastor John Vasu , the first President of the Pentecostal Fellowship Madras and the All India Pentecostal Fellowship. The unity efforts that they initiated is still continuing to bear fruit as the Lord is uniting our hearts to work together for the Kingdom of God in these last days.
I thank God for His faithfulness to the Madras Pentecostal Assembly for the past 75 years and I pray that God's blessing should continue to rest upon their ministry.
I also pray for Pastor Stanley Vasu that the Lord should guide him with His wisdom and use him to fulfill His purpose. God bless you
