Ferndale Baptist Church rejoice with our dear brother and partner Joseph Paul upon his receiving a highly-prestigious national award in India.

Joseph writes on the 12th March: ‘Greetings from our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! … by his grace once again I was recognized by the Government and they honoured me by giving one of the best and most prestigious awards, called Rajya Rathna. Kindly join with me to praise God, even though I am not worthy …he enables me and gave this worldly recognition.’

Stephen, the minister of Ferndale comments, ‘This is a remarkable achievement for a Christian in a Hindu country and is a testimony to the extraordinary work that Joseph and his late wife Lydia have undertaken for homeless children in Chennai. We are absolutely thrilled to receive the news from our dear brother!!!! The LORD has, indeed, honoured his faithful servant.’
