Dearest Fr. Jerry,
I write this email with lot of joy and encouragement after hearing the videos that you upload on Youtube.com.
Fr, the Holy Eucharist video of 10-09-2016 is so much filled with God’s word and how much Jesus loves us and has forgiven us from our sins. I have at least heard it nearly 20 times since and we have downloaded the same video and we all now watch it at our Home LED as a family. I thank you Fr. for again giving us the Word of God through YouTube every Monday and we always wait for the same.
Fr. I was working in Dubai and even there myself and my Christian roommates would watch the videos on YouTube .. They all are from Mangalore and I was the only one from Mumbai but still they would feel strangled that though they were in Mangalore they never paid attention to the Word of God and Life with Jesus. Today as soon as you upload the video on Youtube I immediately put the same link on our Whatsapp group so that they too will hear the Word of God.
Fr. by God’s grace I have got a Job in Doha, Qatar (Qatar Airways), my visa has arrived and every time I went for my medicals and other visa related thing I would always say Psalms 23,121,91,51 just as you told me 2 years back when I came to meet you at Trinity House Mangalore. Even during the interview here in Mumbai for Qatar Airways I recited the Psalms and by God’s grace I was able to pass the interview and I even cleared my Qatar GAMCA (GCC approved Medical center Association) here in Mumbai. I thank God for the miracle he has worked in my life. Further my Qatar office told me that the work visa would take at-least 3-6 weeks as it was the season of Ramadan last month. But I got my work visa only in 3 days. I remember when I went to Dubai on a visit visa for 3 times, dada had spent more than 2 lakhs but still I did not secure a job in Dubai but by God’s grace I didn't even spend a single rupee for the Qatar job. I thank God for his never ending love and mercy. I am told that the tentative dates for flying to Doha would be 7th October 2016 and I truly believe that the Lord will certainly help me and guide me to build a fruitful career in Doha. I request you for your blessings and prayers before I fly to Doha.
I thank you dear Fr. Jerry for bringing me close to Jesus,
I also thank you for teaching us a small prayer (Jesu Havn Tuzo, Ani Tu Muzo) which I recite number of times in a day.

My Son did not want to go away from home to do his studies in engineering. We had left all hopes as it was the second and most probably the last round for admissions. Management quota seat was costing around 4.5 lakhs. I was praying to God to take care of his child and bless him with a skill to earn his daily bread. I had also requested my son to pray to God, his Father to guide and bless him. Though I prayed fervently, I was still a doubting Thomas. In fact due to the various retreats of Fr Jerry and getting to know God more closely, we kept our hope and prayed. We kept it up to God to decide.
All praise and Glory to God for blessing my son with a seat to do his studies in Mechanical Engineering ( Govt. quota). And also the institute is very close to home. I remember the Christian song, ‘Four days late and still on time’ where Jesus came four days after Lazarus died. And still on time by giving him life. Really all hope was lost. But the best was kept for His child my son at the last round.
I also take this opportunity to thank all our brethren at Divine Mission Society for the intercession. I Pray to God our Father Almighty to bless Fr Jerry with good health and long life. God hears the prayers of the righteous.

Praise the lord.
I have been suffering from pleural effusion (disorder of lungs) . It is very painful. The pain was very severe & I thought of having a scan. On the scanning table I just prayed to God - "without your wish nothing happens ...so this disease you might have allowed to happen to me for some good reason. But I am not asking you to remove my disease but I am praying to you to give me strength to know the result and let my disease not affect my family happiness. And when the scan started my all time favorite angel Gabrielle wrapped me in his feathers and the result came there is pleural effusion but doctor said trust in God and go for medicine, don’t do surgery. I went for homoeo doctor and he said was very tensed at my report but didnt say a word and gave medicine and said you will be alright in two three days. I just saw and felt angel Gabrielle spoke to me and as doctor said within 5 days all pains stopped and no fluid in lungs too. Praise the lord.
In the first week of June 2016 Iexperienced a severe pain in stomach. I neglected it thinking it is gastritis. But for next two weeks it kept on increasing and I decided to do a scan on 27th June. I kept praying to God and on 26th (Sunday) during mass when communion was given, before I could keep it in the mouth, I prayed – “I take this communion in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. Angel Gabrielle be in this bread and I will take it as medicine and kill the pain caused by evil spirits”. After the mass we went to our relatives house & market. Next day there was NO SIGN OF PAIN. A message to all when we pray, we should trust God not test whether God will cure or no.
Praise the Lord.

Thank you Jesus, Praise you Jesus.
Last year I was going through very difficult times. I did not have good working conditions, financial position was very bad. One day I called Fr. Jerry to pray for me and my family. I had very strong faith in God that he would deliver me out of my problems. I started praying with deep faith and used to say Psalms 23, 91,121,126 everyday and almost times in a day. This year God had blessed me with good working conditions. My financial problems is solved.

Praise the lord,
In Psalm 91:11-12 for he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone."
True to his words God has given me a chance to serve him by rescuing me from the accident that I met with of 10th February 2016.
As usual after finishing my duty I went to pickup my wife who is working in A.J. Hospital. I was waiting for her in front of hospital gate by the highway side, I was hit by a lorry from back and the car in which I was sitting spinned around and hit against a milestone and got smashed completely from back. All this happened within no time. But I was not panic, being in the driver’s seat I felt somebody lifting me in their hands and I was safe even without a single scratch anywhere on my body. People surrounded the vehicle looking for the person inside. Astonishingly I opened the door, came out and thanked God for sending his angles to rescue me.
Thank you Jesus, glory be to God he has heard my prayers. He will hear me forever because I am in his hands.

Pray because it is needed,
Needed to bring near your enemies end,
To end all those wrongs and hatred,
Prayer filled with Spirit and Truth is needed.
For joy and peace pray,
If you are sad and your feeling bad pray,
You are happy and your laughing praise,
Pray to God, praise the Lord everyday.
In the days your living lean on him,
At your death bed remember him,
Call unto him day and night,
For God alone can protect you and reach you out.
Only Jesus and no one else can listen to you,
Call unto Jesus, on whom even saints and angels leaned on too,
The end is near and the world will fade,
Only Jesus can save you from going to the Hades.

I am not afraid of anything,
Nor do I worry about a single thing,
I have kept my hope in suffering,
Whatever I do my aim is to meet his decrees.
Why should we be anxious when God is on our side?
Didn’t he tell each one of us that he cares for us day and night.
Trusting his promises I believe we can make through this hard time,
Believe in his gospel which is true and which will help you rise.
He is with us and also he is in us.
We are more powerful than anything in this universe.
Because we adore the God who made this world,
Because He lives in us, we will reign with him forever.
Trust in the Lord at all times you who have renewed your life in Jesus Christ,
Let not your heart be troubled because of sufferings and crisis.
Jesus Loves you and he will take care of your every single needs
You only need to be still and trust in his ways and timings.
