A letter from Urmila Kurkalang
Hello wonderful people of St Stephen's,
What lovely memories we have of all of you and our great times together over the years!
We miss you and are so thankful for the part you have played in our lives, as individuals and as the community that sent us out!
Well, it's been almost three years now and the day is almost upon us. I am being ordained as a deacon on the 3rd of July, at St Paul's Cathedral. And we can't wait!
It's what I have been training for formally over the last three years, but in a sense, it is what God has been leading me to from very early on in my life.
I'm certainly nervouscited! I would so appreciate your prayers for Samara, Jonas and me, as God continues to lead us on paths we have not known. But this we know that the God who has called us is faithful, and He will be our refuge and strength at all times.
Please could you also pray for Reverend Richard Young and the lovely folk of St Matthew's Church, Yiewsley and our parish ... as they try to train me!
We would have so loved for more of our loved ones to join in with the events of the day, but our plans have been greatly curtailed due to this pandemic and its restrictions. It will of course be an honour to have Steve and Caroline there!
So whilst you can't be there in person, you are more than welcome to join in with the service at 5pm; it will be livestreamed at the following link: https://youtu.be/5MvzIgwnquI.
We look forward to catching up with you at some point along the way, on this exciting adventure of faith and hope and love! In the meantime, we continue to entrust you into His care.
With love and prayers,
Samara, Jonas and Urmila
