Shaila will be known to many in DIAKONIA World Federation through attending Regional and World Assemblies.
Sadly, Shaila passed away suddenly on 14th September 2020. Shaila had served as the Executive Secretary of the All India Women's Work in the Methodist Church in India. It was my privilege to spend time with Shaila in Bangalore, and then in Chennai, and to meet other MCI Deaconesses. I wrote about my visit in 2014. Shaila is pictured below, fourth from the right.
Deepest condolences to her family, and to the MCI Deaconesses.
Romans 14:8 - If we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s. Rest in eternal communion with God, good and faithful servant.
