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
