The heat is still on! Lets pray for the monsoon rains !!
Hope most of you enjoyed a good break in May - a holiday or two away from the mad heat in Chennai ! Well, now that its June we are resuming children's church and homegroups and some of the other cool things we do at Powerhouse ! Keep your eyes peeled for news on U-turn, the Powerhouse hangout which will be held once a month at Velachery and at Aminjikarai. U-turn will feature great music, food, movies, short films, discussions, games, contests and everything else that makes a great two hour saturday evening hangout!
And dear parents, don't miss POWERKIDS for kids between the ages 5 and 15 at Velachery every month!
Mike and Stacy Wiebe and the kids are back with us again after their three months break in the US. Navin is yet to return from his US trip.

Website Launch - first week of May

Hi All,

Wonder of wonders... our website is almost up! We'll start with a basic set up first and we will soon keep adding information until the website as as good as we can get it to be! Thanks to Obed for helping us with the website and being so patient as we dilly-dallied over a lot of things!

So - we will hopefully launch our info into cyber space during the first week of May. We hope everyone is doing well and we look forward to hearing your feedback on the website - so keep checking the blog for further updates!

Please continue to pray for Jeyakaran, Kavita and Ritika as they finish the last leg of their journey - spending time with family in Houston. They will return at the end of this week - please pray for protection and that they would have a restful time.

Powerhouse Velachery is having a VBS this week - so please pray for them - that the kids who attend would have a blast and have be impacted by God's love and His word.

Website ... coming up!

Hi All,

We've finally got our website template in place ... so we're working on the content and hoping to have it all up and running by next week!

We hope all is well with everyone. Kavi and Jake had sent a note on the 18th (Saturday) - they say:

Dear All,
Ritika, Jake and I are doing well and having a great time!. We visited with family and friends at Philadelphia last two weeks. Right now we are at Phoenix with Mike and Stacy. We will be sharing at their services on sunday and meet up with their leaders here at Desert View Bible Church in the coming week. I will also be sharing at their women's bible study on wednesday called WOMEN OF THE WORD. Hope all's well with all of you.
Do continue to keep us in your prayers. We return to India on May 1st.
Bye for now

Please keep them in prayer as they minister and are ministered to by the Desert View Bible Church!

Easter weekend!
Click on the image to the right to check out what our Easter plans are!

Sorry about the long delay in updating the blog .... and ... yes, we are working on the church website, and we're hoping to get it up and running before Kavita and Jeyakaran leave for the States. Well - at least before Kavita leaves as Jeyakaran leaves earlier. So - the deadline is the end of March!

We hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the few days of cooler weather in Chennai while it lasts! things have been busy here in the office as we've been involved in the 'Dark is Beautiful' Campaign which was run by Women of Worth and the British Council for the International Women's Day (March 9) 2009. Click here for pictures and more information. Thanks to all who attended the events to show your support. WOW really appreciated it.

Please pray for Julie & Celeste as they are travelling around Australia and New Zealand over the next few weeks.

Please do pray for our pastors, Kavita and Jeyakaran as they will both be busy travelling over the next few weeks - pray for their protection, that God would grant them times of relaxation and refreshing, that they would get to spend some time together as a family, and that God would lead them as they lead the church. They will also be visiting Mike & Stacy and their church in Arizona.

Into the new year ...

Well, we've stepped into the new year and the first month is almost over! Things have been going well in Powerhouse Church.

It was great to have Pastor Sandy & Margie Mason from Desert View Bible Church, a congregation planted in the north valley of Phoenix, Arizona in 2002. We had a Powerhouse Leaders and Workers Summit on the 14th & 15th of January in Mahabalipuram and we had members from all five churches join together for this. It was a great time of refreshing and of reminders to get back to the basics of learning and studying the word and to remember the four main disciples of our faith - Solitude & Silence, Meditation & Memorization, Stewardship and Submission. Pastor Sandy and Margie also ministered in the Chetput, Aminjikarai, Velachery and Padur churches.

We'll be saying goodbye to Aubrey & Nishika this week as they leave for Canada on the 30th of this month. Please pray for them as they start their life together in a new country. Also - congratulations to Sibu & Nisha as they got married on the 24th of January! Please continue praying for them as well.
