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

Living James 1:27
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

Mission Trip to Hyderabad
Prasad provides an update to his mission trip to visit members of his congregation that moved to the city of Hyderabad for work.
Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another, be compassionate and humble. ~ I Peter 3:8
Shalom to you all my dear ones in YAHSHUA.
We are so thankful for your prayers as sister Anusha has been recovering at home from surgery for a perforated hernia. It has been a slow process, but she is gradually regaining her strength. Your sympathy and compassion reminds us of the above verse in I Peter. It also reminds me of the need to continue to spread YAHSHUA’s love in India.
I am very glad to share that I had a successful mission trip to Hyderabad. I had quality time with our believers and their families that were once with us in the villages, but they moved to the city to find work during the many-years drought we suffered. I visited them and praying, strengthening them in His word, and shared their burdens in their daily lives, comforted them also sharing TRUTH in the form of literature. We are praying that this ministry will have an impact on these families and their communities. We heard a nice response from our believers after my trip, they also requested more literature and I plan to send it them through courier.
Meanwhile I regret I arrived back with another trial to overcome. Soon After my trip my LAPTOP needed repair as its completely not working. I was in search for its repair work from Vijayawada to Rajamundry and Vizag (an entire day’s journey) but its of no use. It cannot be repaired. From the year 2012 beyond the thoughts this valuable gift from you is wonderful blessing in my Literature Ministry, Edited and Published Sabbatical Truth, Pamphlets, Magazine also for the Translation work of YEA LESSONS which is a revolution in my children ministry also for literature in HINDI at North india, the loss of this thing is a big loss in my journey of Truth. So please uphold our need of a new LAPTOP FOR MINISTRY in your valuable prayers.
This time under the Grace of YAHSHUA. I have participated in a BLOOD DONATION CAMP, gave my blood and also motivated many youngsters in Hyderabad to donate so to fight THALASSEMIA Sufferers (a blood disease in children that is rampant here).
Also by the richest grace of Elohim I was able to meet with many like minded Christian friends and joined an open SEMINAR discussing the bible and the blessing of Yashua’s Way as a benefit to society.
Thank you so much for your continued partnership with Elohim’s work in India. The promise from Scripture is that Elohim will honour the work that we do for the Gospel. We love you very much and remember you in our prayers.
Yours in His Service

Kids Camp Success
“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me bless His holy name.” ~ Psalm 103:1
Beloved Ones in YAHSHUA, Shalom to you all.
There is great joy in heaven among the angels, and joy in the heart of Elohim when sinners are saved. As we come to the highest temperatures of summer in India, we have so much to be thankful for in the protection of my dear saviour as we who are alive at this time, were spared from the Covid virus. How grateful we should be to YAHWEH for extending our days. Let us seek the mind of the Abba Father and do our utmost to please Him by accomplishing His plans and purposes here on earth.
This week we had a blessed time with the children at Rajaraopeta. we had shared word of Elohim and songs with action, sports. We hear so many encouraging reports from those who have received the word of Elohim through deeds, many of their parents are happy to see their children in His presence.
Let us continue to pray for these precious people who are receiving the message of the Love of God and basic academic knowledge for their studies by Sister Anusha. We heartily say our thanks to dear prayer partners who prayed for the camp. We extend much gratitude to brother Blake Silverstein who guided us for CEM lessons. I will still need to translate into Telugu and print and publish (for the purpose of camp we downloaded only few parts of the lessons)
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Yours in His service

Medical Mission Camp
Medical Mission Report from Prasad:
Shalom to dear blessed ones in YAHSHUA
Whoever serves Me must follow Me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves Me. ~ John 12:26.
We are so thankful to have, in the words of the Apostle Peter, like-minded supporters who are sympathetic and compassionate to the brethren of India.
We were much blessed with the Holy Days of Feasts and eager to share the report, meanwhile sister Anusha has developed a minor eye problem, she was injured while riding but under the grace of Elohim she is recovering.
Last week we had a wonderful gathering at Rajaraopeta in the days of feasts as a street Gospel meeting, many of the villagers joined with us to praise Him and the time was followed by delicious dinner.
Under His richest grace we also had arranged GENERAL MEDICAL CAMP, There are many people in the world who are weary and are suffering. We who are redeemed by the Lord have to be a shelter and refuge to these souls, “like a tree planted by the rivers of water that brings forth his fruit in his season.” We consider all our supporters to be like the trees described in Psalm 1.“Blessed is the one whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not with”’
We are grateful to all of you who have been a shelter and refuge to our people as we endeavour to reach them with the gospel of YAHSHUA, also to Dear Mum Ericka who guided me with a clear summary of listed medicines.
In the coming week we are planning to arrange such street gospel meeting at Rajaraopeta and a new place near to my village, as the time is short we are much ready to reach with the light of Scriptures.
Please uphold us in your prayers. Please remember in your precious prayers that we are holding a Holy Matrimony’s of our dearest sabbath school teenager Sister Anusha (Brother Sharonraj Daughter) in the coming week let the time be a blessed time to the new couple.
May the Redeemer enable us through His people, to continue steadfast in our work until His return or when he calls us home.
I love you and thank the Lord for all of you in my prayers.
Yours in His Service,

Passover Joy and Unleavened Bread Services
Shalom to you all my beloved brothers and sisters in Yahshua. We had a blessed time of The Spring Feasts to share the joy with you.
We proclaimed Our Messiah Yeshua’s Death until He comes again on the evening of Passover and shared in this special time together as one body with all our brothers and sisters around the world. After the service of worship, the unleavened bread and wine, we feasted together in a most wonderful meal on a night to observe and remember our freedom in Christ.
The following evening we enjoyed commemorating the First Day of Unleavened Bread together in another worship service and meal to express our love and joy at being washed in the blood of our Savior and now to begin our walk in newness of life.
The following morning at our new building at the property blessed to us by beloved Peter and Nancy, we gathered together in peace to worship and feast on His Word and again both spiritually and physically, enjoyed a meal together – rejoicing in this time we are blessed to be together in unity and peace.
Then it was time on the following days to worship witgh our brothers and sisters in the village of Rajaropeta and preach the Gospel to the unreached of whom we shine like a light in the darkness.
Providing For Widows and Preparing For Passover
Praise report from Chitti Gampala:
Shalom and Good Morning dear Brethren!
We PraiseYah for we have had a joyful New Year celebration and peaceful Shabbat with our congregations. We are prayerfully trusting that you all have had restful Shabbat as we were!
Everyone rejoiced with delicious food we provided to our Congregations as at the end of our Shabbat, and we have distributed the Saris to the widow sister’s money sent by our Beloved Peter & Nancy. All of them are rejoicing for you all standing on their side to comfort them all ways… We are busy with building widows ‘ housing and planning for the upcoming feast days.
Glad to inform you all that We received April Month Support.
We thank our Father in heaven FOR YOU ALL that He has been a blessing to Gampala’s and to the WIDOWS at this time of difficult situation… We are also so thankful for all of your love and kind service to us.
The feast of Passover and days of unleavened bread are close to us, please do pray that our Father will give us Good weather to celebrate the feast days joyfully and peacefully. There are two sisters who are ready for Baptisms.
We are all continually intercedes before AbbaYHWH, trusting that He will protect His belongings for His name sake and rich blessing pure on you all, HalleluYah!
Please do pray for me so that our AbbaYAHWEH strengthens me to continue to serve Him until our MessiYah comes. We love you all, and hello and Greetings of love and shalom to everyone there. Have a good day of Blessings and Shalom.
A Ministry of Hospitality
Shalom to all my dear prayer partners who love and pray for us regularly.
We are happy to meet you through this letter once again. The Psalmist declared in 119:68, “You are good, and what you do is good” realising who God is. We have come to the end of this biblical year, also we had received support from you and constantly praying for you all.
Paul in bible constantly fanned the flame of the gift of God. (2 Timothy 1:6) Paul encouraged and reminded Timothy of his faith life in messiah, which had been given to him as a good deposit. The sound teaching of “FAITH LIFE” becomes very important when, a person wants to live a godly life in YAHSHUA especially when persecution is inevitable.
Last Sabbath we had a nice gathering at RAJARAOPETA (Place of Worship) with feast of love. Our precious saviour has kept a burden for a community near to us (migrants), who moved from north part of (India) near to (our area). My wife Anusha had accidentally met them and they were invited to the fellowship. We urge you to pray for the three new families who have been added to the church that they remain firm to the truth. Thanking you so much for your love towards our family and ministry. Please convey our heartful greetings to our beloved supporters.
We value fellowship as a driving force of ministry sustainability and impact. Your partnership propels this momentum. “I do it all for the sake of the Gospel, that I might share with them its blessings.” 1 Corinthians 9:23
The Elohim bless you and keep you; the Elohim make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Elohim turn his face toward you and give you peace.”
With Love and Peace

Surviving In Difficulties, and Mission To Bihar
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

Serving In The Lord’s Harvest
Fellowship In Faith Ministries serves Christian brethren regardless of denomination in encouragement to do Matthew 28:19-20, while supporting and serving congregations in the Third World where the Name of Jesus Christ is not known. Those fields are ready for planting and sowing by local Christians whom the Father has raised up, who are in need of our help.
Together we seek to be vessels of service to the Lord by fulfilling the Great Commission and being instruments for His Service as His Holy Spirit leads us.
We desire to help serve and enable brethren with a desire to show others the Way of God more perfectly, to be able to do so and in importance fulfill James 1:27. Together we hope to support and lift up the church and the needs of the Least of people on earth as the world measures them.
Fellowship In Faith is a completely voluntary organization. We all donate our time and talent to the service of brethren whom Our Father is bringing us. There is no overhead we keep for ourselves. Our focus is to be a conduit of your prayers, support and love to be given directly to congregations with whom we have vetted personally and have fellowship.
We also organize and lead mission trips to Southeast India, and wherever else our Father may open doors to send us. We desire to help a church body that has grown lukewarm and indifferent to the suffering of brethren in the Third World, recapture the Great Commission and involve the laypersons into the Fields of Harvest the Lord has brought us to serve in.
In this site we will share the testimonies, stories, prayer requests and events that Our Abba Father has involved us in service in the hopes of inspiring the congregations in the USA to follow their own calling to serve wherever Our Great God may lead them.
