I was invited by CMC Vellore to be the speaker for the “New students orientation” program on 30th July 2010. The event was held in Scudder Auditorium inside their sprawling campus. The Director of the institution & the Principal of the college started the event with their wonderful introductory speech about the history of the college, the vision, etc.
The small south-indian town of Vellore is now in the World Map, predominantly because of this 100+year old health care institution called CMC (Christian Medical College, Vellore) that was started by Dr. Ida Scudder. What an inspiring story of commitment, obedience to the voice of God, display of His love, example of hard work, vision and service-to-mankind!
Last year (05th Sep 2009) I was the speaker of a one-day seminar for the General Services Board members of CMC Vellore. So this is my privileged second time of interaction with CMC Vellore team.
I spent the day with the Young Health professionals – Students who were joining the college for their studies. I was able to share the biblical truths under the topic “Empowered to make a difference”. This was their first day in college and they get to start their academic life by hearing life-transforming biblical truths! How exciting!!
