“BBC: A Caring Church”
We moved from Madurai to Bangalore in May 1982. We were total strangers in Bangalore. For us it was a big move. It was an alien experience for us to move from a rural town into a cosmopolitan city. At the same time it was very difficult for us to leave a Church where we were grown spiritually and where we enjoyed a real fellowship and a relationship that continues to eternity with fellow believers. We were not ready and didn’t want to move from our comfort zone. But there was no choice. Hence we came to Bangalore without knowing what the future would unfold for us. Rev. Victor (Pastor, First Baptist Church Madurai) told us about Waldocks and their ministry. It took us three months to settle in Bangalore searching for a place where we could worship and have fellowship with believers. In God’s time we came into contact with the Waldocks and we started to attend the worship service at Waldock’s residence at IV Block, Koramangala. We enjoyed the worship service and the fellowship. We were never in a hurry to run after the service. We liked to spend time with each other. We felt that we have come to the right place. We found that Uncle and Aunty Waldock, Ken and Mary Waldock were practicing what they preached. We enjoyed their hospitality and the fellowship around the table. We learnt so many things from their life and from God’s word. Their love for the Lord and their dedication and commitment to the ministry and their untiring efforts in reaching the unreached taught us so many lessons. They encouraged us in various ways by visiting our home regularly and be a help to us in the growing ministry of World Cassette Outreach of India. Aunty Doris Bruce, Aunty Helen Sension and Sister Moly were there to give us the fellowship that we needed. Our children John and James enjoyed the Sunday School and Junior Church.
Dr. Fred Waldock and Pastor Ken Waldock are caring shepherds and they have taught us to care for each other. We thank God for Bethel Baptist Church and Pastor Nelson and Reena D’Cunha who are continuing the work that was started by the dedicated and committed missionaries.
May the Lord help us to have the real care and concern for each other till His coming for His Church.
