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
Prasad Deering and Family
An emergency Mission Trip was conducted this past April 14th- May 1st to serve the Gampala family and cement our support and fellowship with the Christian brethren at the Shalom Congregations in rural Andrha Pradesh, India.
In January, Pastor John Gampala suffered a major heart attack and languished in a government-funded hospital for almost a week without proper care. Funds from Fellowship In Faith Ministries were sent 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.
Fellowship In Faith was moved by The Spirit and decided to send Michael Deering to visit India much sooner than they had planned out of love and desire to comfort the Gampala family and congregations. From April 15th, Michael’s mission focus was to assist with Pastor John Gampala’s heart attack care by taking him to a cardiologist and obtain 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.
During the visit, the congregation was served with wonderful Gospel messages and prayer was offered every single day for the blessing of the brethren and for hearings and provisions needed.
A day was spent serving the precious widows with a worship service and followed with the monthly food distribution and a surprise luncheon with gifts of new plates and water cups for each of the widows.
On Sabbath April 25th, we laid a cornerstone in the field Peter and Nancy Ryall have donated for the purpose of building a home for all 40 widows on the property. We poured oil on the bricks as Jacob did in Genesis and it was followed with congregational prayer for The Lord to provide what is needed to build the Ashram for all 40 widows.
It was a tremendous blessing of time with a family relationship that has grown over the years. We are blessed to know how wonderful it is to share the love of brethren from the USA who send support and provision for the care of the congregations. Michael served as a wonderful vessel for everyone and lifted up the whole congregation and the Gampala family after many hard months of trials.
Urgent Prayer Request for Pastor John Gampala from India.
I received this e-mail from Brother Chitti Babu Gampala this afternoon and the news is not what we would like to hear. John has a blood clot in his heart on top of suffering pneumonia. Please keep them all in prayer.
Dear Brothers and sister in Christ,
Greetings you all in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ our soon coming King…
First of all we thank you so much for sending $300 for our Brother John’s medical needs, However I am extremely so sorry to update you all on Brother John’s health issues any earlier due to failing of Internet, I was unable to send e-mails or even a mobile Message to our Dear sister Doctor Ericka.
I am sorry I cannot share his whole health problem as I am unfamiliar with medical terms to narrate what had happened to Bro. John, but this morning we shifted Brother John to the Apollo Hospital, as our sister Erika has advised and preferred us to go. So after Eco tests, the Doctor found that Brother John has blood clot in His heart, and put him in Intensive Care for an emergency care… for Treatment.
Me, and My wife Esther were unable to wipe out sister RUTH’s cries even after she had Eye surgery few weeks ago, as she left her husband John for very first time in Intensive care unit after 35 years of marital life….
We just return to home as it is now 12:20 AM here, much Tired. Please pray for Brother John for complete and quick recovery from his illness… our Fellowship In Faith Family know the Gampala family’s financial inaability to meet Brother John’s Medical expenses to repair him, and we know all of you have the same situation at this time, but prayers are very important…cards of encouragement is mostly need to sister Ruth at this time.
I will update more on brother John soon. Thanking you so much for your prayers and love. We too continually are praying for you… have good day, God bless you all.
To Dearest Brothers and sister in Christ,
Warmest Greetings and blessing to you all in the precious name of our Redeemer Jesus Christ who Tabernacle among us, HalleluYah…
We praise God our Father for He has blessed us through you all and has enabled us to celebrate the Feast of Sukkot… joyfully and peacefully with Brothers and sister in Christ here.
A Roman Catholic sister who rendered to our Faith has submitted to immersion in Christ, and add to the Congregation…Please continually pray for this new baby in Christ, so that God the Holy Spirit would guard her till death
There was much damage caused by the super cyclone on (Sunday), our Father has kept us safe in His Tabernacle Palms 27:58, as our nearest city Visakhapatnam ( Vizag) was 90% destroyed.
We cordially give thanks to Bro. Michael Deering’s Family, Pastor Robert Nakamoto & Family, and Bro. John B. Wilson’s family and who prayerfully and generously provide funds for Feast of Tabernacles to rejoice both physically and spiritually.
Thanking you so much, please continually pray for us, as the Harvest is plenty to reap soon before our Master Jesus Christ Comes to gather and put into His store hose. We too continually praying for you all, trusting that our father would bless you all and Hide you all in His Tabernacle till we reach home, Amen…
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.
