Pastor John Gampala: I am much delighted to give you a very Brief update on Bro. John ‘s health. “He is doing well”, God our Father is guarding him with His Spirit to continue to Serve His people (despite massive heart attack last January that has rendered the left side of his heart dead) … It’s been almost a Year as he was discharged from his death bed. His Cardiologist is amazed of his health condition on gradually improving day by day. It’s because all of your prayerful SUPPORT and words of encouragement. He often visits few houses in a day to preach the word of Truth, Encouraging the Brethren to continue steadfast in Truth, and so he is still doing in His regular activities… such as preaching on Shabbat day…

Bro. Joshua and Kumari:– (Bro. John’s son-in-law and Daughter), they are regularly Attending our Shabbat Service, and feast days rejoicing in the Lord with their two Children. Unfortunately Bro. Joshua’s parents are opposing them on their faith. Please do pray for their family to accept the Truth… Brother Joshua and Kumari are prayerfully seeking to have work for their family…too.
Me, Your Servant Bro. Chitti Babu Gampala: – As you know I am much busy with Family, Ministry, since 3 years now. (Even I have no time to speak with my Brother Michael on Skype often) However our Father is doing great things for my effort for his name sake, HalleluYah. I too have had some health issues recently. I have high Blood pressure 170/110, but my Diabetes is normal. I met my Cardiologist recently, he suggest me to have TMT (tread mill Test). Which is ok, but I have some Bad cholesterol in the Blood. I am daily peddling my Bicycle all around 12 Kilometers in day to reduce Bad Cholesterol… I also use my Regular Medicines…

After paying Bribes and Tips to the Government officials, we got the local and State Government Approval to be Build the widows home in the property given us by our Beloved Peter Ryall and Nancy three years ago… I have submitted all required Documents of proofs to the Central Government of India to Grant a FCRA (Indian version of 501C3) successfully…. This is a very complicated and Stressful work for me…but trusting in our Father, we are prayerfully waiting to answers the enquiry team who comes from New Delhi soon…I do not know yet how much Bribe they demands from us to Grant the FCRA (or what troubles may come as new government in India is becoming more hostile and intolerant of Christians in India).
 
However I am glad to inform you all that our Brother John Gampala has received support funds you sent … I will use as you specify where to use… remaining money will deposit into our Regular amount…
 
I request you all please continually pray for GAMPALA’S well being, and comfort in the time of trails.
 
The private school we send our children have demanded we pay school fees by 15th Jan, 2016… (Including- Nelson, Stephanie, Johnson, and Dina Grace too) I am trying to find a part time work to meet the needs, but I have not got one yet, I do not want to lay a burden on you…Our Father has assigned me to complete the unfinished task, both in spiritually and physically…
 
Please continually pray for quick resolution of the FCRA, so we can receive the needed funds to build the Widows home, so that the precious Gems can stay together safely and comfortably… I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at last your Care for me has flourished again though you surely did care. Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ who Strengthens me.
 
It’s not my intention to pinch you all by sharing about Gampala’s, but with love. Please continually do pray for Gampala’s so that we may steadfast work in winning of many for Christ’s sake. We are also continually praying for you all. Once again we the whole Gampala’s, widows, and the Congregations here are sending their heartfelt Greetings of shalom to you all, and prayerfully looking forwards to meet in the Mid Air with our Lord, amen.
 
Have blessed and joyful Shabbat SHALOM to you all.
Your’s fellow servant of the Master
Bro. Chitti
