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.
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.
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.
Letter from Sagar Jalli to Brethren in the USA:
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.
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.
Save Kids Ministry in Andrha Pradesh India sets aside a day for a Worship Retreat
Prasad Deering has been called to minister to the youth in Hindu-dominated regions of Southeast India. One of his efforts is to teach each child in their congregations to become missionaries and to go forth and spread the Gospel in India.
Today he has sent word of a worship retreat for the children at the Rajupalem congregation and asks for prayers for it’s success.
Greetings you all.
I hope this letter finds all of you in great health and spirits. Thank you so much for your prayers, I can’t Express how this blesses my fruitful ministry and our spiritual growth. As we know that “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeded out of the mouth of God”. Our heavenly Father greatly desired to follow His instructions to live in a environment close the life in the garden of Eden, for that He invited us.
Because of this fact, we too invited the youngsters of Rajupalem Sabbath School for a day retreat on 29th July, 2014. For this event please uphold us in your valuable prayers. We want everybody to be truly raised in truth. So please remember us in daily prayers.
