I would like to welcome and thank Deacon Larry Niekamp of Sacramento, California who has taken on the responsibility of Book keeping /accounts section of CHESS, and Dr. Lindsay Briggs who has also taken on the responsibility of the U.S. Coordination / Secretariat of Catholic CHESS Project. These two again are great volunteers without whom we cannot achieve our desired objectives in terms of coordinating our activities in the United States of America. Meanwhile, I ask you all for your prayers for the project that the Good Lord may continue to direct and guide us all in His wisdom which is beyond all understanding. Together with his wife also, Deacon Larry has been sponsor to some of our children for many years. So, together we have been on this journey.

and that as he does his bit of this onerous task God may bless him and his family abundantly.
