Dear VPS members/supporters:

Sri Radhe!

Thank you for participating in our prayer meetings. After seeing the
encouraging support from most of you, a few VPS members, Dennis Kelley, Charran
Mahadeo, Nick Cavallo and I, have decided to visit Chennai and help with the
Tsunami relief project. We will be leaving for India on January 28, 2005. We
will join Venkata, who used to live in Quincy, MA but returned to Chennai, India
last year. Venkata and other local people are working hard to help those who
were affected by the Tsunami. Our project may include one or more of the
following areas:

1) Support schools, which were destroyed by the Tsunami.
2) Support homeless centers, which are helping the people affected by
the Tsunami.
3) Distribute soap, water, food, clothing etc.
4) Organize bhajan programs in the local Mandir.
5) Help with cleaning projects.
6) Distribute health information fliers.

If you have not yet donated to any organization then please consider
donating a check payable to VPS. We will be working with the local people and 100%
of your donation will be used for the cause.

We will keep you posted regarding our activities in India. Our visit to
India will be helping the people in Chennai and then planting trees in
Vrindavana at Sri Radhavan site. We will try to be engaged in Bhajan programs and
will travel to the Rajisthan area for sightseeing. We will also engage in food
distribution to Harijan (sweeping class families) and the poor. If you
are interested in joining us please contact as by January 15th the latest.

We may not make a great difference but we will serve with devotion and
dedication to those whom the lord has touched.

Please keep us in your prayers that we may continue to do this selfless
service.

RADHE RADHE!!
