East Coast Trip: Churches in Kelantan - 2

After our visit to Gua Musang, we travelled to Kuala Krai to meet up with our alumni, Yesudasan, who is pastoring a small Tamil congregation of about 25-30 in this town. He is also involved in pioneering work among the Indian and migrant families in Kelantan.

Kelantan has a very small Indian community, estimated to be about 550 families. This group of community is very much neglected and marginalised. Yesudasan's church, Pusat Misi Immanuel (Immanuel Mission Centre), is the only Tamil speaking church in the entire state of Kelantan.

We had a good time catching up with Yesudasan and his family for mutual encouragement. They are in need of our encouragement and support, as this particular ministry is one that is lonely, difficult, and often not met with encouraging results.

I think this was a nice trip to meet up with friends and pastors in the east coast and gave them the needed encouragements. Looking forward to read more about it.
