Message from Director

Dear Friend,
Marriage is a commitment to life, the best that two people can find and bring out in each other. It offers opportunities for sharing and growth that no other relationship can equal. It is a physical and an emotional joining that is promised for a lifetime. Within the circle of its love, marriage encompasses all of life's most important relationships. A wife and a husband are each other's best friend, lover, teacher, listener, and critic. And there may come times when one partner is heartbroken or ailing, and the love of the other may resemble the tender caring of a parent or child. Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life. Happiness is fuller, memories are fresher, commitment is stronger, even anger is felt more strongly, and passes away more quickly. Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes life is unable to avoid. It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences, new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life. When two people pledge their love and care for each other in marriage, they create a spirit unique unto themselves which binds them closer than any spoken or written words. Marriage is a promise, a potential made in the hearts of two people who love each other and takes a lifetime to fulfill. Christian Marriage & Family is a ministry for Godly based marriage and family. It is our deepest desire to encourage you in your walk with Jesus Christ and His presence in your marriage, family and home life.

Message from Executive Director

Dear Friend,
Marriage was designed for companionship and intimacy. Through marriage we can learn about unconditional love, respectful honor, how to forgive and be forgiven. We can see our shortcomings and grow from that insight. We can develop a servant's heart, and draw closer to God. As a result, true soul happiness can be discovered, and this, I believe is one of God's ultimate desires and purposes for designing the covenant of marriage. Another very important aspect of a Christian marriage is not only a commitment to each other but also a commitment to God, the power of God! Therefore, the husband and wife in a Christian marriage must be dedicated to living a life pleasing to God and according to God's ways-Living a life in Christ. Each person has to strive to live their life according to the principles that are taught in the Bible. Each person has to strive to fulfill the God given purpose of their marriage. This will enable the husband and the wife to rely on a "force" outside of them to sustain them in their marriage. We are always accountable to God so we are therefore responsible to ensure that our marriage remains a Christian one and that it remains vibrant, strong, and a ministry in itself to others. Chavara Family Welfare Centre is formed with this great vision to fulfill our responsibility to God, society and nature.
