Maramon Convention

Vinod writes:

Asia’s biggest Christian gathering Maramon Convention (The 115th) is scheduled February 14 to 21st. The pandal (flat roof thatched by woven coconut leaves) which can accommodate almost 80,000 people is expected to be completed by Wednesday February 10. The woven coconut leaves will be carried from their homes to their allotted area by each parishioner from nearby parishes. Two hundred thousand copies of Marmon Convention hymn book (in Malayalam and with transliterated) with 16 new hymns have already been completed. A choir of more than 101 members is planned to lead the hymns at every meeting.
The schedule includes morning, afternoon and evening meetings every day. The speakers planned are the Bishops of the Mar Thoma Church and Reverend Canon Tim Dakin, (General Secretary, CMS, since 2000), Bishop Dr. Robert M Solomon, (Methodist Church, Singapore), Rev. Martin Alphons (USA) and Rev. Vinod Victor, (Trivandrum, Kerala, India).

Please pray for all attending. You can follow it online
