Dear Father Jerry,
I am writing this email to share my joy and proclaim the Goodness of our Lord God.
Psalm 37:4 “ Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart”.
Father, last year I wrote to you about my problems asking your prayers for deliverance from fear, shyness, and depression; I also had problems in my marriage and very bad financial condition. I was trying very desperately for a job from 2 years, and TODAY THE LORD HAS BLESSED ME WITH A BEAUTIFUL JOB. JUST THE KIND I ALWAYS WANTED! And I believe soon my relationship with my husband will be restored fully. All this was possible only when I turned towards “THE WORD OF GOD”. Moreover, the desire to know and LOVE the WORD of GOD motivated me when I heard your message “Showers of Blessings” one year ago on YouTube. I also asked Mother Mary’s Intervention in getting this Job. I told God that I would give 10 percent of my earnings to your noble work and mission of spreading our God’s Word. Father, I thank you for your prayers and your inspiring messages and talks on the Word that has filled spiritual insight and led many like me towards God.
Last month my brother had fever, which the doctors suspected as dengue because his platelet counts were very low when tested, then we went on recalling psalm 91 verse 10 “No evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling” that whole day and thankfully the fever turned out to be common viral fever.
Thanks and Praise to our Lord God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

My mom's wrist was swollen, So she consulted doctor at Manipal Hospital. Doctor said its a bone cancer and we need to operate and remove bone tumor as soon as possible. We all were in shock and couldn't accept it.
I called Father Jerry to pray for her. He said to read Ezekial 37 1:10 twice a day and have faith in God. We all started praying.
Doctor gave 3 options before operation.
1) If bone spoiled little, they will remove tumor with spoiled bone and fill with bone cement.
2) If its little more, then they will remove lower back bone and replace in hand.
3) Last option is removing complete wrist.
It was very hard time for us. Father Jerry's healing prayer we are listening in you tube, which gave us so much strength .. It increased our faith.
By God's grace doctor went with first option. tumor sent for biopsy test. It took 2 weeks to get report. In that 2 weeks healing prayer gave us strength and hope to our family.
Within 1 week we all had faith that God has done the miracle and mom is healed.
Report came on 18th Nov 2014 as "Normal Tumor" and Its not "Cancer". God has done miracle and now doctor said no treatment required. Now she is completely cured.
We really thank God for his mercy on our family and even Fr. Jerry for his prayer and giving us hope.

I completed my graduation in May 2014 and was striving for job. I came to Bangalore and started searching. I asked Fr.Jerry to pray for me and he told me not to worry, God will give me a good and better Job. I started giving interviews in many companies and got selected too. I thought that was the way which God showed me but I was wrong, the offer which I got was rejected because of delay in my results as that was not meant for me.
Later I gave interview in IBM and waited for 2 months. At that time I prayed with God that I am not going to give any other interviews after this because I know that you will give me job in IBM itself, but its your wish not mine and I will give testimony if I get job in IBM. I kept complete faith on God that he'll help me to get into it. I faced many people saying, try in some other companies also don't depend on 1 company but I didn't listen to them.
Because Jesus told, If u have little faith then you can command a mountain to fall in sea and it will.
Here I felt the meaning of these words and experienced too.
God did not leave me and made me get into the same company.
I got into IBM with good shift and with good colleagues.
I thank Holy Trinity for abundant blessings on me and my family and Fr. Jerry for his prayers.

Last year during this time in May 2013 I had come to Mangalore for a visit. And as soon as I came and I met Fr. Jerry in Trinity.
I had just completed my graduation that time and I was terribly disturbed and distressed about where will I get a job and about my career and future.
And what I heard from Father those words of consolation and grace is still in my heart and mind.
While I came for a retreat at Kenchankere and last when I came to ask blessings from Father, he told me to Trust God and Keep faith in Jesus that he will never leave me.
Thereafter i came to Mumbai in June, trusting only in my God and the Psalm 23 I read three times and I went for the interview here in Mumbai.
There were 126 people who had come for an interview that day and out of that only I got selected because My God had already prepared a Job for me there.
This June 2014 I complete one year with this company Capita India.
And it is only because of trusting God and his blessings that has helped me to sustain and blessed with a good job and good future.
I thank you Fr Jerry for always praying for me and above all thank you for the touching retreat talks that you upload in the website. I always make it a point to visit website dmsworld.in to hear the word of God.

Praise The Lord !
I hereby like to give my testimony for what Lord Jesus has done in my life.
In 1999 I heard first time your retreat for 5 days in Kulur Church, where I came to know Jesus more closely and what the Word of God is. I also understood what Ten Commandments meant through Word of God. From my childhood I always use to speak to Jesus as a friend, I didn’t know talking to Jesus is also a prayer. As I grew up I got attached to the world. I lived Christian as a name but did not truly live it. After attending retreat in 1999 Jesus changed my life to live the way he wanted. I attended retreats in Mulky nearly 3 times in Konkani and once in English. Each time I attended the retreat I found I attended for first time. Since Saturday was Divine Youth day I stayed on Friday after the retreat to attend Divine Youth one day retreat. On Friday evening I was feeling lonely even though one of my friend was with me. I was badly remembering my mom. So I went before sacrament to pray, that time I found a book The Precious Blood of Jesus in which I got to read how Jesus eagerly waits for us in Holy sacrament and feels lonely when none of us bother to visit Him and speak to Him. Jesus gave me His pain of loneliness which was severe, where I found difficult to bear. From that day I decided to visit Holy sacrament daily. I prayed to the Lord to give me a job where I can visit Holy Sacrament daily before going to work. To my surprise God gave me job in St Aloysius College where 1hr I use to spend before Holy Sacrament in Adoration Monastery in Milagres then I use to go to work. Till to day I am continuing this even though I left job in St Aloysius College. Presently I am working in a private company near Chilimbi, still I go daily to Urwa Church because there is a Monastery where there is Holy Sacrament.This way Lord gave me a way to do His will. I found that though many Christian children are studying there no students who make time to visit Jesus. Only during exams I find students coming there to pray. To my notice, I found a Hindu girl who is studying in primary, comes there daily. She prays so faithfully closing her eyes and joining hands in faith. She even reads Kannada Bible by herself.
I had a dream where Jesus says something but I do not understanding. I had planned to go to attend a retreat in Kerala, Mother Home which is in Kannur dist. I knew that retreat is in Malayalam but I was told there is translation in Kannada. So I took with me Kannada Bible. I didn’t know till I reached that retreat centre the retreat is in Malayalam and no translation. I planned that moment to come back. One aunty who took me there told that it is God's will, that I should attend retreat. Even she didn’t knew that I am unaware that retreat is in Malayalam and no translation. She prayed for me to change my mind and stay for retreat when I said I want to go home. I always use to say The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want after you told to read it. I just cried before Lord I came in intention to attend for spiritual need, there also I found picture of Jesus as Shepherd. But to my surprise Lord starting showing visions where I could understood what was told in Malayalam. He showed me there how people there give thanks to Him dancing singing which I never found in Mangalore. No one knew there that I don’t know Malayalam. When Fr. Mathew, Director of retreat centre told that I don’t know Malayalam then only everyone knew. I met people who served Lord which gave me inspirations.
I Thank You Jesus for being with me every time.

Oh Lord you are my master,
Unless you build me, I will not grow better,
You are my future holder,
Take my responsibilities on your shoulder.
I can't do anything without you,
Weak and feeble I am on my own.
On you do I lean forever and ever.
Never cast me down and hold me when I stumble.
You are the root of all wisdom and Master of this creation,
You know the beginning and the end,
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Jesus please have control on our lives.
He is able and for him nothing is impossible,
Let us not be rigid and depend on our failing strength,
But let's be humble and offer our life into his hands.
For Jesus is our Creator and Father of all universe.
