Our Pastors are shepherds for a flock of babes in Christ laboring in the Fields of The Lord’s Harvest here in Andrha Pradesh, India. Often they require acting as Generals to navigate themselves and their congregations around the battlefield of hostility that exists for them, their ministry and those in their congregations. Please keep us in your prayers for safety and strength through The Holy Spirit to do the Work of the Lord in preaching the Gospel to those lost and whom never heard of Jesus Christ.
