Serving Flood Victims at Godavari River
Shalom my Dear Loving Brothers and Sister in Yahshua..
During the past few months the world has been going through great fear due to the global pandemic. One of the many scriptures that has been comforting to me during this time is found in I John 4:4, “Greater is He who is in me, than he who is in the world.”
The fear of a fourth wave (of COVID) continues in many parts of India, and it is having a great impact, especially on the poor. In addition, there is a huge loss of property and life in my state due to heavy flooding in the surrounding villages near the River Godavari.
The love of YAHSHUA impelled me by watching the tragic sufferings of the people around me, so we delivered food packages to around 125 poor people under a government shelter. We are hearing about these families’ needs through local media and some Christian communities.
Since public transportation has not been operating, the poor have no means to access food supplies. We travelled around 150 kms with much difficulty, They are grateful for the provisions of groceries at a time like this.
I thank the Lord for friends like you who have genuine love and compassion for the suffering people of India. Let us be diligent in reading the Scriptures and praying for the sick and suffering, and let us continue to be comforted by the thought “Greater is He who is in you, than he who is in the world.”
I think of you and thank the Lord for your part in the work of our Elohim in India. I pray the Father will keep you “safe and secure from all alarms.” By God’s grace, all of my family are keeping well. I love you very much and remember you in my prayers with the members of Rajaraopeta congregation
Yours in His Service

Shalom to you my dear loved ones
I pray that this letter finds each of you doing well. Nowadays after the pandemic, People are very concerned about their health, the unstable economy, and unemployment. With all this anxiety and uncertainty about the future, the line in this song came to my mind: “God is still on the throne, and He will remember His own…”
While fear and frustration may overtake many people, we who trust in Elohim can remember Psalm 91:1-2, ”He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Especially in this time of global pandemic, we call upon His Name.
Praise Elohim for His inspiration for us to serve the lives of His people (Dearest Widows & Old aged) from Rajupalem and Lanka, at the time of our monthly Rice distribution, I am there to check their medical issues, also having regular medical check ups for the widows at SHALOM SHELTER everyday to fulfilling the scriptures James 1: 27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
“What shall I render to the lord for all His benefits towards me?” and I can never repay Him for all His benefits towards me. This week Elohim has blessed my Children (Shemmi Michael – 4th Standards & Shalomjee – 2nd Standards) to start their New Academic year with books and bags. Please uphold them in your prayers.
Please pray for us as we navigate through the regulations in order to continue these vital ministries. Your prayers and generous financial support have been a great blessing to help feed the truth searching families in India. We thank the Lord for your loving kindness and compassion to the poor and needy.
ABBA FATHER bless you
With Love and Peace
