20 years ago this year Leela started as warden at Nambikkai Illam. A celebration was held on Sunday 26th February. About 36 old boys and girls came during the morning and stayed for lunch – Biryani of course! Several came with their wives and children. Leela was suitably adorned with an Indian shawl (a gesture of honour) and a photo album with lots of photos from the last 20 years was presented to her along with a gift and signed card from all the children. Several gave testimony to her love and care as a mother to them while they were at the home.
Brian Tugwell gave a message about Leela being a comforter to the children and now she herself would be comforted from Isaiah 66:13. Look out for more about Leela’s 20 years in a future newsletter.
