February Update From Andrha Pradesh
Shalom to you all my dear family in Yahshua,
There are certain things that can be gained only through prayer, particularly the possessing of the nations for the Lord before the king appears in His wrath, let us pray with Him, in Him for His glory. The nations belong to the Son by the right of His Creation and by the Law, (His word) so we are proudly proclaiming His Good News to the nations. We pray and preach for His glory to be revealed among the nations.
Last night we had a thanksgiving prayer meeting at our “Home of Comfort” at Rajaropeta, brethren from Rajupalem and Lanka congregations added with us to praise His name and we were joined by elder people from our village who fully listened to His word. However, a hostile neighbour of the Gospel disturbed our Abba Father’s work, but we continue to pray for him. We also had delicious meal after the meeting.
PEOPLE OUR PRIORITY
We praise Elohim for our involvement of preaching and teaching His Word to the believers and making everyone to stand perfect in Yahshua every week. We are conducting cottage prayers, Gospel meetings so please pray that the ministry will bear much fruit for His glory as we also pray that those who are joining with us will resolve to vigorously continue serving our Elohim.
Dear brethren we are rejoicing in the faithfulness of our Elohim. He is trustworthy to provide all our needs from last week our beloved sons Shemmi Michael and Shalomjee have started their New Academic Year with safety precautions for Covid. We urge you to uplift my kids Education needs to be provided in time. We need to pay for the Academic Fees and Books.
“I lift up my eyes to the hills– where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth. indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep. the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. Psalm 121:1”
We are blessed to have a spiritual fellowship with you all to wait for His glory, we uphold all of you in our prayers. Also uplift is through your prayers that I and my family want to serve Elohim faithfully.
Please convey our hearty greetings to all our co-brethren, thanking you so much for your valuable support and prayers.
I keep my eyes always on Yahweh. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Ps 16:8
Evangelist Prasad Deering & Anusha
I have been in contact with Gampala Anandababu through WhatsApp and have been inspired by the work being done there and the need for donations to purchase bibles. I have also read throughout this site, that you have some medical struggles with your church elders. My prayers will be with you. Please confirm for me that it is safe to send money to Anandababu for the bibles. I would also like to make a donation to you as well.
Blessings in the name of Yeshua.

Shalom Erik! Yes the work being done by the congregations there is inspiring. However, we do not recommend sending donations to Ananda for bibles as this is a request for needs that have already been met by our ministry. We have asked Ananda NOT to beg for funds and to create the impression the Gampala congregations have no help or support and that their widows are starving and children hungry. The congregations do have needs – and we have been supporting the widows and the Gampala ministry with monthly support for many years. However, we do not have confidence or trust in Ananda to steward donations sent by the saints in the US to him directly. We have established trust in funds send to Ananda’s uncle, his mother and his younger brother Prasad who have always proven trustworthy with every donation we have sent. We would be happy to facilitate funds from you to them for specified needs. We keep nothing, every cent of a donation to the Gampala ministry goes directly to them, minus bank and withdrawal fees that are incurred when they withdraw the funds.

Shalom Michael! It seems Ananda is still messaging messianic congregations telling them widows and children are starving and in need. He says we can transfer money by transferwise. Is there any other way we can donate to the congregation directly or to Anandababu’s uncle? Via the Ministry? We already sent a donation to the ministry but there was no answer when we contacted them.

Shalom Jasanth! I am sorry for the delay in response, I was away for my daughter’s wedding and a family vacation. YES, donations can be sent to us, and we then send funds directly to Ananda’s uncle Chitti, or Ananda’s younger brother Prasad, of whom both have proven trustworthy and honest. You can get more updated ministry information on our Social Site at MeWe (we no longer use Facebook) at: https://mewe.com/group/5ec499363485340660f185ac where Prasad and Chitti often send updates. You can send funds/offerings for the Brethren in A.P. India to “Fellowship In Faith 1014 Dawson Road
White Bluff, TN 37187-4206
We have sent Chitti and Prasad ATM cards to OUR bank account here in the USA – and they are able to withdraw the donations we put into them for the congregations and the widows without incurring delays and bank transfer fees. Our ministry keeps nothing, our overhead is donated as tithes and we strive to get every single cent/rupee that is given into their hands.
On behalf of the brethren, Dhanyvadamaulu (Thank You) for your love and concern for the Least of These in the vineyards of YAH’s harvest in India.
