Our Church's Rev P.M GNANADURAI wrote the biography of Rev William Goudie, he has mentioned that Goudie was the "Prince among the Missionaries". He served alot in and around the places of Tiruvallur District and he has built Hospital, Schools, Hostel,Lace Hall and many churches.
Especially to Our Village he stayed and gave treatment to our villagers when the whole villagers were affected by Cholera Disease, At the time most of our villagers planned to move to different parts of India, but he gave treatment and many of them recovered by his treatment and his prayer.
Hearty Thanks to Wesleyan mission and all the missionaries for sharing the Gospel to India especially in South India, so that our villagers believed and accepted the Lord Jesus Christ.
