    Bibles & Songs Books:-The scarcity of Bibles and songs books in our local language is chronic. As church members here are very poor they are unable to afford the Great price of Bibles .The churches of Christ here lack songs books. Please help us get bibles in our local language {Telugu}. Please pray that every person can have his/her own Bible to read and learn the word of Truth.

    I continue to sow the seed, I find some people understand the truth. Interested in the learning the truth. I continue to visit those villages. The names of the village are Akaveedu,Sangapeta,Chinagani palli and Anampalli. These three villages are in Prakasam district. These are some of the village like my visit to them. I hope some day I can fish some souls for Him.

    Dear Brothers & sisters
    Great need to preach the nations. Mark 16:15 How many of the Christians recognized this Great Commission ? I don't know but there a great urgency for this call and the commission. Here in India we are able to go for the many places to preach with great sufferings . We do need the encouragement. So far we have been baptized 5 men and women in the five village areas. These souls needed the Milk of the word. Pray for us . Many of our poor preachers giving their lifetime services to the Church over here. Pray . Request for the Prayers . If u really pray for us that God could do the miracles in the soil of India . We do have the rains , no problem , but the poor have no food for the rainy season . They have to go for the fasting . pray for them. We do need to restore them with Love. Love them if u had the time .

    We are conducting the Bible classes for the new Born babies.
    Pray .
    Yours in Christ
