Sis. Roseline Rani hailed from Puthantharuvai, a place near Thisayanvilai of Tuticorin district, Tamil Nadu. After her father passed away when she was a teen, she came closer to Christ. After marriage as a family they moved to Pondicherry for work. In 1996 they committed to go as missionaries in one of Bro. Augustine Jebakumar’s meetings and joined GEMS in March 1996. After serving at Karwandiya for few months they moved to Sikaria.

She was a woman of prayer; a loving mother & a caring person. Though they faced many issues as a family and ministry, her prayers kept them going and enabled them to continue to serve the Lord. Sis. Rani was known for her hospitality and service mindedness. She would not turn anyone away and would somehow find a way to fulfil the needs of the people who visited the canteen. Her love & concern for people’s welfare won the hearts of many.
