    I appreciate thsi decision of Hyderabad region.

    may I also point out oenmore imprtant matter. Our Sunday school text books are beyong the standard and comprehensive capacity of children at that age. teh English trnslation of these textbooks look even worse.

    Textbooks stil remain teh most imprtant tool for our Sunday School.

    Therefore, I request an organsed effort is needed to improve teh English translation of our Sunday School textbooks
