Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,
Greetings in the most holy Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. How are you? We are doing fine by the grace of God and by your prayers and expect you are, too. Thank you very much for your continual love, prayers and support for our ministry and for us.
In the month of January, Bro. Richard and Sister Karen and Bro. Scott and Sister Brenda visited us from New Life Baptist Church, USA. It was truly a blessed and wonderful time. We had three days of meetings where Richard and Karen taught our students. It was a blessing to them. Scott and Brenda shared their testimonies and the students were touched and inspired.
In the month of March, we had three days of meetings in Haslathada village where our Pastor Kiran is doing ministry. There, seven people accepted Christ and took baptism. Pray for them so that they may grow in the Lord.
In the months of April and May 2015, we conducted Vacation Bible School for the children in six different places where our pastors are doing the ministry. In each place, about 60 to 70 children attended. Classes were from Monday to Saturday. We taught them Christian songs and stories and asked them to memorize Scripture verses. We also provided them with lunch and snacks every day. The result of the Vacation Bible School was that many children learned about the Lord Jesus Christ and some of them accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Savior. Please continue to pray for the children’s ministry.
On April 24th, we had a church dedication near Ananthapur, Andhra Pradesh where one of our students, Prakash, is ministering. The land for the church was donated by one of the ladies who is a member of the church and we funded the construction. It was the hand of God that led us in building His Kingdom.
Pray for the Bible School, students and teachers. Pray for the church-planting ministry. I underwent surgery on my right ear (tympanoplasty) on the 11th of this month. Kindly remember me in your prayers for God’s healing hand.
In His Service,
Rev. D. Ravinder Reddy
