Day 13, March 24 - Dame Mary Edith Brown's birthday and CMC Ludhiana's Founder's Day. Happy birthday and happy Founder's Day!

The day began with a special Founder's Day chapel service at which Bill Virgin brought the message and Val & Doug Virgin sang, interveaving 2 songs, “He Reigns” & “I Have Decided To Follow Jesus”. This fit in well with the theme “My Work is for a King”. We were also pleased to have fellow Canadians, Linnea Good & David Jonson along with their son Patrick with us for a good part of the day!

The official sesquicentennial ceremonies and celebrations began at 11AM and were held under the same large shamiana as the convocation. There were dignitaries from the local community, former administrators, Delhi, sister college, CMC Vellore, Australia and, of course ourselves from Canada. See the photo captions for a little more detail.

This was followed by a luncheon where Bill and Doug were able to speak with Dr. Richard Daniel who studied here in the 50’s when Dr. William Virgin was a professor. Richard told us he was in the student group that met in the Virgin’s home each week meaning Bill & Doug had met him when they were children on the CMC campus! Richrad went on to become an Opthamologist and served as Director for a time at CMC as well.

After this, Dr. Clarence Samuel brought Pastor Mani and two young women who had recently taken and graduated from the first Learn And Uplift Foundation online course offered through CMC.

We had dinner with George Joseph who runs a boarding school for children from the homes of families who have a member with leprosy. These children are shunned and excluded from society even though they are not infected and are excluded from attending a regular school. George and his team provide education so the children can then enter the mainstream of society as young adults.

Then it was time to finish packing and prepare to leave Ludhiana the next morning.
