Ministry Update From Prasad

Sabbath School

Shalom to you all my Dear Loving Family in Yeshua…

Dear Brethren, When the Word of God is preached, the Holy Spirit works in the hearts and lives of people, convicting them of their sin and leading them to repentance. As this number increases, the people themselves feel the need to gather at regular times for worship and listening to the Word. This happens over a period of time. Normally the believers meet in the missionaries home. Later it may move to a believer’s home. This is how we are continuing our bible studies in Tuesday and Thursday at Rajupalem and Rajaraopeta.

Thursaday Bible Study

Tuesday Bible Study

The worship group may initially consist of our missionaries and one or two believers. The rest of the people may be just seekers or interested people. It is wonderful to see the numbers grow. First, we have individual believers. Then we progress to whole families and then the families bring their relatives to the Lord. This is how the worshipping group grows until it finally becomes a full-fledged church.

Ministry to the children

YESHUA said, “Let the children come to me and forbid them not…” Children are the pillars of tomorrow. How we teach them today will be seen in how they live tomorrow. Our missionaries have recognized this and therefore are involved in a special ministry to children. “I look at these children as MY children,” declared one of our missionaries. Further we have discovered that they way to a man’s heart are through his children. Our ministry to parents is often through their own children.

File Pic

One of the primary ways of reaching out to children is through the SABBATH SCHOOL this is proven to be a powerful way of generating an interest in Yahweh’s Word besides delving into the lives of these little ones. And little ones learn very fast…much faster than their parents. Little ones also see the light of the Gospel much faster and respond to Yeshua’s love. Another way is through free tuitions. These tuition classes begin with prayer and a time of singing before taking up History, Geography, English and Mathematics! This was made possible through your generosity and earnest prayers to build the worship center where without any obstacles we could be able to run the Sabbath School programs as it is not possible in the previous days in rented homes.

Youth Bible Study

Blessed be the God of Abraham the most high, possessor of heaven and earth shall guard you in His Peace. Thanking you all.

With Love & Hope

Continuing To Preach The Gospel Despite Difficulties

Gospel Meeting @ Rajaraopeta (3)

Update letter from Prasad Gampala Deering:

Shalom to you all my dear loving family in Yeshua

Praise Yahweh that a Gospel Meeting was conducted in RAJARARAOPETA Village where Hindu people gathered and were refreshed in Yahweh’s Word and responded to the Good News of Yeshua Messiah. By the grace of Our Heavenly Father this meeting was held without any disturbances or persecution and many believed in the Savior. Please pray that believers would stand firm and Faith to endure struggles. Pastor Chitti has visited the meeting and shared the Word of Yahweh.

Please pray that this breakthrough may continue until our Yeshua Returns. We are still facing Hindu opposition in this village to conduct prayers in our Houses because we have widows.

Our Youngsters committed to a work day and cleaned and painted the Sabbath Worship Center at G.Maminada for the congregation there. Continually uphold them in your prayers.

Your’s in His Service

Festival Joys and Ministry Update from Brother Prasad

 

Rajaropeta

Shalom to you all my loving Family in Messiah.

It’s a great amazing fact that we all enjoyed the Feast of Tabernacles last week. We are so grateful for the incredible support that you have been empowering us to do in this season in response to the Feast. We are thankful to Yahweh for His great shower of blessings in the FOT for His Peace, unity, health and wealth.

In this FOT Yahweh has given wonderful opportunities to introduce and inaugurate many new things for HIM.
The Bible has a lot to say on the right foundation and right building. To build on the right foundation of Messiah and to build right on the foundation is wisdom according to the Scriptures. We also want to rejoice in the fact that Yahweh is stirring a great revival in our Congregations. The enthusiastic women participated to sing for Yahweh as choir and made all of the believers to enjoy in His presence with Praise worthy songs and Hymns.

We praise the Yahweh for the opportunity to launch a new small Weekly Bible College (Scriptures Research Center). Where people eager to learn more about the Scripture and have an earnest desire to witness for YAH. We are excited about the enthusiasm of these believers and we thank YAH for open doors to spread the Good News. This Bible College is designed for believers as they seek to grow in YAH as disciples. We are thankful for the vision and faith that Yahweh has given us through word and his spirit especially in relation to the redemptive purposes of His eternal will. Vision is to be sensitive to Yahweh’s leading and wait for the revelation. For this revelation we need Study Materials regarding our faith to teach, make them to learn, to build them on the right foundation as per “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander. 1 Pet. 3:15-16”.

Our mission is not based on human need alone. It is Yahweh centered. We are having productive meetings discussing hopes and plans for the ministry, but we are in great need of prayer support from behind to move forward that’s why we started an Intercessory Prayer Group with sisters “Mielec Prayer Team (Intercessory Prayer Team)” those who are ready to pray about various prayer request around the clock.

TLT TV

We have a dream and it is this: all who are in spiritual, physical, social and economic bondage must be liberated. This can happen only through spiritual transformation that comes by hearing the Gospel and by believing the Messiah alone. Man’s basic need is spiritual. Only when their world view, life style and moral outlook are changed can real progress be seen. To gain this progress we want to produce the scriptural facts in the visual media (YouTube, Face Book, WhatsApp, and other media etc.,) to change lives. This is why we want to share the biblical facts in a YouTube Channel that Indians could watch and realize the truth. We want to call it: “THE LIFE TV7 – Changes your life today” and the idea is born in this FOT. It is resting on the scripture that the greatest secret of fruitfulness is still the principle of the corn of wheat, which is giving up of life. We want share this life in many cultures using Telugu, Hindi languages in India.

We want to reach the uttermost seekers of our country so we want to record the messages of dear servants of YAH. For this purpose we are in great need of Video Camera (HD) and Software for Live Programs. We are thankful if you contribute for this to share the good news in multiple ways. We value your prayers and participation, suggestion, encouragements in Yahweh’s work.

This time we had a one day Feast at Rajaraopeta Congregation at our home most of the gentiles attended curiously and listen to His word. Pastor Chitti shared the word of Yah, we provided delicious meal for them.

Once again thinking you so much for your valuable prayers and support. Please do continually pray for my dear family and Ministry.

Pentecost Joy and Celebration at Hebron

Prayer

Dear brethren and sisters in the church there in USA,

We hope and pray you are doing well.   We are all sending our heartfelt thanks for your great generosity for the church here in India.

We had a blessed feast of Pentecost meeting here. Thank you for your kind help for the Pentecost meal.

Meal

We are greatly renewed in the spirit of the Lord. Nowadays preaching of the gospel is entirely different with changes in India. Without having the spiritual help we can’t handle the evil spirits. Satan is not just out side our church he is IN the church to deceive the elect. So it’s very important to all the faithful to renew in the spirit every day with the armor of God.

We love you all.

Sagar and all at Hebron.

Surviving In Difficulties, and Mission To Bihar

Gospel Chariot-.jpg

Greetings to all of our prayer partners in precious name of Yahshua

Dear Brothers and Sisters, we have already come to the last month of the Biblical year, we must be now familiar with “Oh my how time flies” Phrase. Changes are happening (here in India) so fast that it seems as though it is surreal.

Here on the home front Modi’s Government announcement of demonetizing the five hundred rupees notes caught everybody off guard. Suddenly the currency which had so much value became mere paper overnight.

Talking of value the human soul is priceless. God fashioned man in his own image. Man is the crown of God’s creation. And so he has an intrinsic value. Man chose sin and be in slavery under a tyrant. But Yahweh in mercy has taken the initiative and has reconciled us to the Father through Him as the month of Abib we are going to celebrate the feast of Passover.

I have taken the theme as a burden to introduce the saviour to those around us, He taught that would be the best gift we can give to anyone. So we are planning to do outreach ministry in the North Part of India during the month of May 7th onwards. This area in the state of Bihar is majority Muslim and the risk we take is even greater to us than normal with Hindu leaders who also persecute us.  But we must do Matthew 28:19-20 and rely on our Abba for our protection to do His will.

I am sure as we lift our saviour he will draw men to himself as we realise Yahweh’s moto that we are strengthened to stretch out even in the midst of impossibility.

Dear brethren all of you know how great the task is for us to preach the gospel in the north parts of India, while the persecution going on. The kingdom of Yahweh is enlarging and will include every nation, every language, and every tribe. So we are focusing on this vision. We request you all to pray for us. Sound mind and health and also we are in great need of resources. We have to distribute gospel tracts, Hindi Bibles (instead of Telugu ones we have) and literature on True Gospel to educate the brethren in truth, so the work of our religious tracts is in progress (translation from Telugu to Hindi). Please pray for that. We are indebted for your support in the ministry.

Prayer is the mighty engine that is to move the missionary work. Our communication with the Elohim is vital in this war. Let us therefore maintain this link and intercede for one another so that our enemies attempts will be foiled.

We found that many of our past believers (who used to attend the House of God) who moved to Hyderabad for the purpose of livelihood are now in a devastating position from the truth. It became a passion for us to motivate them and mold and renewal them back into the faith as they are our fruits of the harvest.

Last week I went on a gospel trip to Hyderabad visiting all our dear families and strengthening them and inviting them to come back to Rajupalem for the coming feast. Please do pray for them.

Yours’ Loving Family in Yahshua

Mission India – April 2015

 

An emergency Mission Trip was conducted this past April 14th- May 1st to serve the brethren and cement our support and fellowship with Christian brethren in rural Southeast Andrha Pradesh, India.

In January, Pastor John Gampala of the Shalom congregations suffered a major heart attack and languished in a government-funded hospital for almost a week without proper care. We sent funds to Chitti Gampala to take Brother John to a private hospital where his diagnosis of a major heart attack was confirmed with echocardiogram results that showed his left ventricle’s heart muscle had died with two blockages leading into the heart.  The doctors wanted to perform an angiogram but did not think John would survive the procedure and as a result the Gampala family decided to place John’s life into Our Farther’s Hands in prayer and they took him home to rest on God’s mercies.

We were moved by The Spirit to visit India much sooner than we had been planning out of love and desire to comfort the Gampala family and congregations and to check on the progress of various projects we have been assisting with at Hebron Home, notably the water crisis that required the building of a new pipe system and new membranes for the filtration plant to replenish water to the campus in Palakollu.

From April 15th, our mission focus was to assist with Pastor John Gampala’s heart attack care and obtained oxygen for him so he can breathe (his heart is no longer pumping blood adequately to his body) and to comfort the widows who have lost a sister recently, with encouragement for the congregations that have endured many trials of late.

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On Sunday April 26, I traveled  to Hebron and visited with the orphans and with Sagar Jalli and family and had a wonderful time with the children whom we all love and documented the progress of the various projects underway there and noted new challenges that we will try to assist Sagar in accomplishing.

As you can see by the smiles and love of our being together again, I have to again give all of you many thanks on behalf of the brethren here and the bottom of my heart for your continued love and support to these precious brethren we serve on the front lines as they do Matthew 28:19-20.
