The Bethesda Thanksgiving Meet was organized on 2 December 2018, at D.G.S. Auditorium to thank the Lord for the great and mighty things He has done at Bethesda in the past 25 years. Having celebrated the Silver Jubilee of Bethesda Prayer Centre on 10 October 2018, the Thanksgiving Meet was held to thank the Lord for His innumerable blessings, miracles, and deliverances that He performed through the Bethesda Prayer Centre. 

As the congregation gave thanks to the Lord, the presence of God filled the auditorium with the anointing of the Holy Spirit and answered their prayers with miracles and deliverance. Many who had received blessings and miracles through the Bethesda Prayer Centre participated in the meeting to whole-heartedly thank the Lord. 

On the previous day, the Bethesda Vision Centre was inaugurated after renovation. By the grace of God, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran, along with the servants of God inaugurated the Vision Centre so that multitudes can come and soak in the presence of God. The gathering celebrated the inauguration of the new Vision Centre in the heart of Bethesda. Praises and thanksgiving filled the air, rising as a sweet aroma to the Lord, followed by an edifying message from the Word of God by Dr. Paul Dhinakaran. God was undoubtedly at work in this place! 

Sis. Evangeline Paul Dhinakaran led the gathering to praise God for all that He has done in the past 25 years through the Bethesda Prayer Centre. According to the verse from Psalm 100:4, “Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name,” the congregation thanked the Lord in one accord for making Bethesda Prayer Centre a House of Comfort to millions of people. Sis. Evangeline led the crowd to thank God specifically for the blessings, miracles, and the deliverance people received in Bethesda, and for the visions that our Lord had given to His children at this place.  

 The Biller ID facility was inaugurated at this meeting. It is a fantastic feature the Department of Post has extended to the Jesus Calls Ministry to ease the facility of e-Payment through National Biller ID. This facility to Jesus Calls is the first in India extended to any private organization, with customized data collection along with donations. So, there is no longer any need to fill money order forms to support the ministry. This feature will make a headway in God’s Kingdom through the generous donations of the partners. Dr. Paul Dhinakaran along with Mr.Sudhir Gopal Jakhere IPoS. (Sr. Supdt. of post offices Coimbatore Division) inaugurated this facility amidst the thousands who had gathered.  

Dr. Paul Dhinakaran shared the Word of God and encouraged the people to open up their hearts to receive the Lord and serve Him just as Peter received Jesus in his boat when He filled it with fish. He also expounded on the life of Zacchaeus who welcomed Jesus into his house and received salvation. The Lord gave a vision to Dr. Paul Dhinakaran during the prayer to initiate a Bethesda Prayer City project. Dr. Paul commenced the existence of Bethesda Prayer City by faith and prayed to God for His guidance in this project.   

The presence of God filled the place stirring up great miracles. Many came forward to testify what the Lord has done at the meeting. The faith of the people was ignited through the hundreds of testimonies that rose on that day.  At the end of the Bethesda Thanksgiving Meet, Dr. Paul Dhinakaran and Sis.
