New Friends

I am so thankful to all the people we met while staying in Calcutta.  They  made our stay much more enjoyable and comfortable.  To the people who took care of us at the Volunteer house and the staff at the hospital and last but not least the leadership of Mercy Ministries.  Thank you so very much.

Geraldine and Jean
You both were a tremendous help to us and a resource of knowledge and information. We couldn't have done some of the things we did without your help. We wish you both the best in your future endeavors and hope to see you again someday. 

Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to spend time with us and all the time you spent in keeping in touch with us before we even got to Calcutta.  

Pastor Joshua
Thank you for your labor of love for the patients of the hospital.  We enjoyed going on rounds with you to pray for the patients.

Orijeet and Pastor Phillip
Many thanks to Orijeet and Pastor Phillip and their staff at the Volunteer house for your care and attention to our every need.  We appreciate all that you did to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. 

Chinese Dinner with AG members

Our team enjoyed a wonderful chinese dinner with members of the AG church and Mercy Ministries.  We are here with Huldah Buntain one of the founding members of the Calcutta Mercy Ministries. Huldah and her late husband built the Mercy Hospital and the various ministries that bring hope and healing and the message of Christ to many in Calcutta.

Here are some of the leadership of the ministry.  Sanjay and Ruhi Prasad, and Bonnie Buntain Long.
