We were sad to say goodbye to our friend, Anand Gabriel, who returned to Chenai in India on 26th January. A Christian and Gideon from the Church of South India, Anand (or Gabriel as he was known to many of us) joined out fellowship during his two years living in Wythenshawe whilst employed by Simon Carves Chemical Engineering. Anand was a blessing to our church family and the local Manchester City Branch of Gideons International and will be sadly missed. We know he will be happy to return to his family in India and we continue to pray for them as they continue to bring the gospel to those with whom they live and work. The photo attached was taken after Anand’s last service at which he preached an inspiring sermon.
