Today, the Christian Missions Charitable Trust India (CMCT), founded by Dr Colleen Redit, is a comprehensive ministry serving 2000 people a day with 350 staff members.
It all started when Colleen, as a teenager, felt a call on her life from God to the poorest of the poor in the Tamil-speaking area of South India.In her journey to obey that call, she became a trained kindergarten teacher and taught for three years.
Colleen completed a two-year diploma course at the Bible College of NZ and left for India in 1964 with a vision and burden for the needs of these people.
Her aim was to begin a work that would give opportunities for girls to move out of the poverty cycle.The motto then and now is, "Where there is no vision the people perish."
After arriving in South India, Colleen studied to learn the language and kept seeking God's will for where He would have her serve.She was soon invited to Madras (now named Chennai) where her ministry started by teaching a couple of girls cross-stitch in a rented garage.Chennai is in South India, with a population of eight million and hundreds of slum communities.
"From 1967 until now, it has been the greatest privilege of my life to work amongst the poor and uplift lives," says Colleen, the president of CMCT.
Throughout the celebrations, Colleen was honoured with speeches and presentations.CMCT also released a DVD and book to mark the occasion.
Mrs Wilton describes Colleen as a woman of vision, faith and action, supported by a competent team of Indian people with a wide range of qualifications.

This is a book that traces the most remarkable story and work of Colleen Redit, founder of Christian Missions Charitable Trust, Chennai, India. However, in reading the book I was struck by the simple and very 'matter of fact' way in which this story is told.
What is communicated is the warmth, wisdom, and enthusiasm of Colleen Redit.
