    No words to express the good gesture done Bethany congregation, sisters, and all who made this project successful. The Monteiro family are lucky to have such a beautiful house donated by well wishers whose names are endless. They should thank our Almighty God.

    Praiseworthy job by Bethany Sisters of Mangalore. It's a direct response to the words of Jesus: " I was a stranger (homeless) and you welcomed me." May we all emulate this example of Bethany Sisters. Well done Sisters.
