Losing A DearMember

UPDATE from Prasad Deering on the situation in Rajorapeta, A.P. India.
Shalom to you all my dear loving family in Yeshua
Dear Brethren, we are very much desire to hear from you in these Pandemic Days. We always remember you all in our daily prayers as you all are much precious in our Abba Father sight. Hope you all are doing well in His richest grace, surrounded by His Spirit.
Last week we had lost one of our dear believers of senior age group to death. They migrated to Hyderabad from our village a long time ago for employment. Recently they returned from there due to health issues. We had a “Prayer of Hospitality” (memorial service) with their family members after obtaining the permission of Govt Officials.
We are very much lacking in spiritual fellowship with our dear believers due to the Panic Situation of Covid-19. We are only permitted to contact them through phone calls to strengthen them through conferences prayers on the phone. Unfortunately we are not able to meet with them online, as most of our members are too poor to have smart cell phones.
Please convey our hearty greetings to all our co-brethren, thanking you so much for you kind support and your valuable prayers.  Please do pray for us as within the last two days, we are seeing an increase in Covid-19 Positive cases in our Village.
THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU, THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU, THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE.
With Love and Peace . . . . . .

Virus Impacts The Ministry

Update from Evangelist Prasad Deering on the situation they are facing in India with this COVID-19 crisis.
***

Shalom to you all my dear loving family in His exalted Name.

The prayer closet is the battlefield of the church, the deliverance from fear. 

We are hearing about the pandemic situation in USA, we also are worried and by that time we are on our knees in the presence of our Abba Father. In the love of our ELOHIM which is selfless, considering the other, better than oneself as in (1 Peter 4:8) we are in intercession for you.

Meanwhile in our land, the situation is also moving from bad to worse.   Our government has initiated quarantine procedures. In His richest grace we desire to be able to go for Bible Studies, and regular house visiting’s through this week for the sake of the kingdom’s gospel. 

We had a wonderful Second Saturday Special Worship meeting a few days ago, but we could not imagine the situation we are confronted with for next week.

Second Saturday Special worship

Our hearts are troubled for the obstacles now in our way to do kingdom works.

In the upcoming of month of April and May we planned several Mission Projects to do. We had received a lot of phone calls from dear brethren in the last month in our pagan land who are willing to know the True Scriptures.  We planned to go to Jharkhand in North India, to be a beacon of true gospel in this pagan land. 

We were planning to inform you about this Mission Trip next week as a prayer request, but now unfortunately our situation is turned upside down.   We need your Loving Prayers as we don’t want to put much burden on you we lift our eyes to our Abba Father.

THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU, THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU, THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE.

With Love and Peace . . . . . .

Doing The Work Amidst Difficult Times

Chitti
Shalom to you all my dear loving family in Yeshua Messiah!
Passover and unleavened feasts are just round the corner. As we gather to remember Elohim’s gracious gifts to us, all we have experienced our Abba Father’s Love, and we need to share it with others. That’s what we are doing in many rugged areas of our region.
Unfortunately the political situation is turning from bad to worse in our country as the Parliament of India is passing the ANTI CONVERSION BILL, which will make our preaching of the Gospel a crime. Even today, in many areas most of God’s people in India are facing insults and threats. We decided to redeem the time  wisely to Preach the Gospel.
In his richest grace we had successfully finished the 7 week program of GOSPEL TO THE NATIONS, imparting the true Gospel in the hearts of believers and non believers in many villages and areas around us. We always thank you for your valuable support through prayer and donations to reach these lives for YESHUA.
During these programs challenges were inevitable. Satan does not like us in his territory. We have faced many obstacles, some from family as well as from unbelievers and sometimes from sickness. But all these challenges keep us alive for Him to give us better understanding of His plan and purpose for us.
Now through His strength and desire of our beloved believers, we are happily starting GOSPEL TO THE NATIONS -PHASE 2 to do outreach Gospel work in Rajaraopeta, Kakinada, Mamidada and other new places with the assistance of MIELEC & GIDEONS TEAM.
Gospel to the Nations at kakinada
We praise him for these beloved ones to join us in His kingdom.
Last Saturday evening we had a blessed meeting at Kakinada where we have Bible Study every Wednesday evening. We also printed Three Thousand Gospel tracts based on the truths of PASSOVER AND UNLEAVENED Bread  in the bible. Gideon’s Army will be ready to distribute these every Sunday. Brother Chitti Babu Gampala prayed and dedicated these tracts. Though we had many opportunities for preaching the Gospel knocking at our door, we had to painfully turn down some due to our lack of resources. So we do covet your prayer full support for these works.
THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU, THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU, THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE.
With Love and Peace . . . . . .

Training Up Our Young In A Hindu Land

Kids
Update on Ministry efforts in rural Andrha Pradesh, India:
Shalom to you all my dear family in Yahshua!
“Whatever you do, do it heartily as to the Elohim and not to men”.  – Col. 3:23
All services honorable no matter how small that task may be, if we do it unto Elohim
Praise Elohim for the opportunity share the Gospel to the villages in this 7th week of “Gospel to the Nations” program. We are happy to say the open door of True Gospel. Pray that many people will join with us to worship the True Creator.
Gosple to the Nations 7th Week
An article titled “What do young people really want?” that I read recently captures the desires & likes. They want a space where they can share their inner longings and vulnerabilities without being judged. They want their ideas accepted and contributions respected. They aspire to make a mark and make a tangible difference. They prefer both likeminded and diverse people. They also face umpteen challenges in the globalized world.
Amidst all these advances, each generation has the responsibility to seek The Creator and grow in His knowledge too. Such knowledge is not only vital but mandatory for one’s own good! This time we are precisely focusing on the youth under the theme GLOW (Go Light Our World) every Sunday evening we are gathering with our Sabbath Youth. In this youth bible study we are discussing on the topics
· What is the real pursuit of life?
· Will I robbed away from the fun and fullness of life if I like take Creator seriously?
· Are the lives of old Biblical characters worth emulating in this modern world?
· How do you serve Elohim in the here and now?
Youth Bible Study
Most of our youngsters are interestingly participating in this class; we request you too pray that these studies will be a lifelong blessing to many.
We thank all our prayer supporters for encouraging us and continually supporting us to fulfill His tasks. We too pray that our ABBA FATHER bless you with adding life to your years.
THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU, THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU, THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE.

Gospel To The Nations Program

Prasad feeding cake
Praise report on preaching activities in Andrha Pradesh, India, where anti-conversion laws recently passed by the Hindu government make Matthew 28:19-20 exceedingly dangerous.
***
Shalom to you all my dear loving family in Yeshua.
I am writing the praise report for the Gospel to the Nations program we have been having each week, which was successfully lead by our Heavenly Father (we have finished the first 5 Saturdays of 7 Saturdays we intend to preach this program).
Last week in the power of our Elohim we had a nice Gospel meeting at Lanka village.

01

I humble myself before the throne of the Almighty Elohim and acknowledge His wisdom in steering the entire mission for His glory. There were many challenges when I stepped into this responsibility, but the Elohim who has called me to serve Him through this Mission, enabled me to move forward along with my believers in the Mission. As David says, “I have been young, and now I am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, or his descendants begging bread (Ps. 37:25), as a Mission, we experienced the Lord’s timely provision and have seen the hands of Elohim in making funds available out of nothing. He met all our needs in this great mission.
As ambassadors of truth: we praise Him for the Gospel outreach in 3 New Villages on Sunday with the participation of our Teenagers. We had distributed Gospel Tracts in our Local Language at Sunday Churches to the Believers to show them the way more perfectly.
We are on solid ground because of the commitment of our dear supporters who have stood with us unswervingly; they heeded the prompting Holy Spirit to send their sacrificial gifts, amid their own needs and even loss. The unrelenting efforts of all the church Ministries Personnel are deeply appreciated.
Please pray for our upcoming meetings which are going to be held in the weeks ahead.
THE LORD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU, THE LORD MAKE HIS FACE SHINE UPON YOU AND BE GRACIOUS TO YOU, THE LORD LIFT UP HIS COUNTENANCE UPON YOU AND GIVE YOU PEACE.
With Love and Peace

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.

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

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

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.

 


Wisdom Academy – Serving Orphans in Kenya

Mardy Cobb

I have had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mardy during presentations of our ministries at a church festival back in 2013.  To say he was an additional inspiration would be limiting.    How wonderful it is that God is using us to serve in the many fields of His Harvest.  While we serve in rural India, Mardy Cobb has been faithfully serving the congregations in Kenya, Africa.

His report following showcases the wonderful work God has allowed him to accomplish with the love, prayers and support of so many faithful Christians here in the West.  As night continues to quickly fall upon the world, let us continue to work in the Lord’s Fields while there is still daylight for us to work.

From Mardy Cobb

I want to thank you all for your support of our orphans, and our school (Wisdom Academy) in western Kenya. Your financial contributions and your prayers have done much to help change the lives of these children.  God bless you greatly for your kindness and good works. May God keep you strong and protect you and your loved ones for your faith in Him and the exercise of true religion.

We have been blessed to have some wonderful children put into our care. Kenya, as you may know, administers national tests to all schools and school children.  Based on the scoring in these tests, schools are ranked.  The testing is, of course, measured against the Ministry of Education’s national curriculum.  Our school resides in a western county of Kenya named Kisii.  This county (Kisii) has 1560 schools within it.  Inside the county are several districts.  Our district is called the Gucha District.  Our school has been progressing well from its  very beginning, and we have additional improvements to report.  Wisdom Academy is ranked as the 6th highest school in the county, and we are ranked as the number 1 school in our District.  Because of God’s blessings allowing us to reach this achievement, we are now routinely called upon to give advice to both schools and orphanages in Kenya.  It is a testimony to God’s answering our prayers for blessings of favor in the eyes of those we work with and for. God is good.

Please pray that God would open more hearts to be as generous and kind as all of you have been.  If you know someone of a kindred spirit, you might consider mentioning our effort.  You can give them our website to review particulars (www.cogrescue.org).

Here are a few words from the Manager of our Orphanage and School, Richard Mogendi:

Peace , mercy and grace from our Father God and His son our Elder brother Jesus Christ  be unto you, your family and our family of faith. Please allow us to trust that this letter will find you doing well and that the hand of God is upon you. As always may all of our family of faith members know that we do make mention of them in our prayers. We love you brother and respect you always and all who have taken our burden into their hearts. Thank you for the messages that are of great encouragement to the family of faith.
Am writing this e-mail to express our heart most thanks to all of those who put aside their personal needs and gave to the orphans, school and teachers. May I say that the seed you sowed here and the watering of love we are experiencing from you day by day has indeed done a lot. We don’t have enough words to thank them but with our limited words we say thank you and may God bless you all.

God bless you and thank you so very much for your sacrifice, and for putting others before yourself.

In His Service,

Mardy

Brief Update On Sister Ruth

02

We at Fellowship in Faith Ministries would like to thank you for your prayers and your support to Sister Ruth Gampala to correct her loss of vision due to severe cataracts.  We are pleased to report that enough funds were raised for BOTH eye surgeries and those funds have been sent on to the Gampalas for the surgery.  Chitti write us to inform about the first surgery:

To, the prayer warriors in Christ,

Greetings to you all in the most precious name above all names!

We praise Yah for we had joyful and peaceful Sabbath with the Brethren rejoice in the Lord, HalleluYah.

I much delight let you all know that our Dear sister RUTH had eye surgery on Thursday, and brought her to home safely. We indeed do not know how long it will take time to cure the wound and get back her vision, except God our Father will do a Miracle through all of your prayers

Her Doctor diagnosed some medicines for healing and suggested Ruth should have surgery for the second EYE as soon as possible

We convey our heartfelt thanks for those who prayed for sister RUTH to have surgery, please continually pray so that our Father would mercy on her to have complete vision, and to provide provision for her to have surgery for second EYE soon.

“Sister Ruth and Brother John requested me to convey her hearty Greetings and thanks for those who prayerfully donate for me to have Surgery”

I will update more on Sister Ruth’s recovery…soon. ( sorry for my poor English)  “For GOD our Father is not unrighteous to forget your work and the love which ye showed toward his name, in that ye ministered unto the saints, and still do minister.”

Thank you so much for your unfathomable love and support to Gampalas Family. May God blessings be upon you all, bless you abundantly for His Glory. Have Joyful and blessed Sabbath shalom to you all. Please convey our heartfelt Greetings to all who join and stand with Gampala family ministry… Grace and peace be unto all from God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ our soon coming King.

Thanking you so much,

Your Brother in Christ,

Chitti & Family.

Prayer Request for Sister Ruth

 

 

 

 

DCIM100MEDIA

 

 

Prayer Request for Sister Ruth. After a long dry spell of being unable to meet with and talk via video chat with my brother Chitti Gampala, we finally were able to connect last evening and it was wonderful to see and talk with him. He conveys the thanks of the Gampala family and the congregations for your prayers and support for them.

In our conversation Chitti relayed a prayer request for my Amma, Sister Ruth who is suffering severe cataracts and will require surgery to correct them. Her vision is now limited to peripheral only. Ruth is not very trusting of doctors in India and there is some substantial costs to the surgery. Ericka and I encouraged Chitti to help Ruth overcome her fear and get the surgery done. 

They requested prayers for Ruth that she will indeed allow herself to be treated for the problem, that the eye doctor doing the surgery will be blessed and that Our Father would speed her recovery so her vision can improve. She wants to be able to read the Word of God again, and I need Ruth to be able to be the hawk she has been to protect me from Chitti slipping green ‘cobra’ (ghost peppers) into my food when I go visit.

Thanks Among Rising Persecution

DSC_0053

Dear Brethren,

Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We hope and pray you are doing well.

We pay our heartfelt thanks for your kind support and the prayers you are doing for us here in India.

We are so grateful to Brother Michael Deering for his great witness about Hebron.

By the abundant grace of God we and all the children are doing well here. We praise God for the freedom of the gospel in India.

I recently talked to the children about the Christians persecution in Iraq and Syria by ISIS. I told them the time is near to see the Lord Jesus face to face with His glory. We can see complete evil in the acts of the ISIS that how much they enjoy the persecution of Lord”s people. As you know death is the enemy of both man and God but they love the killing so that it IS is complete evil as I see it.

I read the email from brother Nakamoto about the killing of the children of Christians. Some things we cannot say YES or NO. They happen according to His will. We are merely human beings and simply watch His will on the earth. That is all according to my understanding.

We are all praying for the families who are suffering terribly. The Lord will take care of them where ever they are in the world.

We pay our heartfelt thanks to Brother Nakamoto and Sister Sherri for their generosity towards the children at Hebron.

We are having 174 orphans and semi orphans at Hebron at the moment. We are giving them food and shelter. We are educating them both secular and the morality of Christianity. They are learning principles of life and getting the answers for the questions where they came from?  Why they are here? What is the purpose of life? Where they will go?

I am just telling them to live like Christ and live forever.

We need to give a pair of clothes to the children this year which costs about 10 US $ for each child. Please pray for this particular need.

We are all sending our high regards and best wishes to all the brethren and sisters in the church there. Please continue to pray for us.

We are contentiously praying for your strength both physically and spiritually.

 

With best wishes,

Sagar and all at Hebron.

New Orphans Given Love And A New Home At Hebron

SagarCaleb1

The blessing of being able to provide for new children in need.

Sagar Jalli provides this update with photos from Hebron.

We are pleased and give thanks that a donor from the USA has made a substantial donation to Hebron to enable the hiring of 3 Government-required employees so that the girls dorm at Hebron can remain open at the orphanage without all the girls being removed and the dorms shut down.   This is the matron at the girls dorm supervising recess and games in the courtyard at Hebron.

These four girls were rescued by the government while begging on the streets.  They were sent to Hebron last week. Sagar is pleased that in this case the government recognized that Hebron is the best facility for taking care of the orphan children in India.

4girlsHebronThis boy, P. Caleb. was rescued two weeks ago while begging on the streets. His father abandoned him and his Mother died on the streets.  Hebron brings smiles to kids who normally would never have a reason to smile.

P.Caleb2 P.Caleb1

For the first time in the 47 year history of the orphanage, an abandoned child with dwarfism now calls Hebron home.  Sagar says “I felt very sad when this boy asked me to pray for the unification of the parents who left him and gone in their own ways. I prayed. Of course we both prayed.”

SagarCaleb1SagarCaleb2SagarCaleb3SagarCaleb4

As always happens at Hebron, the new children soon find the happiness, joy and love of caretakers and fellow orphans who gleefully spend their playtime playing various games, especially the State-sport of kabadi – which is similar to ‘tag’ and ‘steal the bacon’.

BoysKabadi BoysKabadi2 BoysKabadi3 BoysKabadi4 BoysKabadi5 GirlsKabadi GirlsKabadi2 GirlsKabadi3 GirlsKabadi5 GirlsKabadi6As always, the ability to provide for these abandoned and neglected children at Hebron comes from the generosity of brethren and people in the United States and other churches in the West.


Fruits For Orphans At Hebron

Update from Sagar Jalli – Director of Hebron:

We are glad to tell you that the government has approved our appointments of a watchman and two lady wardens for the girls.
We pay our heartfelt thanks to the brother helped in this need for one year.

I hope your trip to the churches is successful. May our dear Heavenly Father will bless all your efforts to help the Hebron home for His glory. We hope that we will get regular support for the needs at Hebron Home.

We are all praying for you all dear brethren.

May our Lord will bless you abundantly.

Your brother in Christ,

Sagar and all at Hebron.

It is a joy to see the kids enjoy USA apples, a fruit that is not indigenous to India.  A special treat for them.
