Working for the Lord – August News from Andra Pradesh

Greetings to you in Christ precious name from your brother in Christ Pastor Veeranna from Hyderabad.

I would like to give my July report in Khammam and Warangal districts places:

I give thanks to you and all the donors of Messiah Mission and friends and their spiritual and financial support to tribal (gypsy) work in South India, Hyderabad. Once again I gave thanks to each one of them from the bottom of our heart.

Messiah Missions Gospel trip to Bhadrachalam in Khammam and Warangal districts

“Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching”. II Timothy 4:2

The River Godavari’s fury continued with the water level rising at Bhadrachalam in Khammam district. It reached 62 feet mark giving sleepless nights to the people in the low-lying areas. Several villages have been marooned with flood waters of Godavari. Several houses in the low-lying areas like Subashnagar in Bhadrachalam town were surrounded by floodwater, which seeped in due to alleged leakages in the sluice gates of the flood bank.  In Andhra Pradesh state, rain has continued from July month to still today. We are so thankful to God for rain in this season but there are many people in Bhadrachalem in Khammam district and other districts of Andhra Pradesh state with sleepless nights.

The month of July I visited some of the our pastors churches in Bhadrachalem area and preached the word of God and distributed tracts but in some places I couldn’t visit them because all the roads were cut because they were full of water and there was no power supply.

By the grace of God and through your prayers support I reached many unreached areas and preached word of God, prayer for sick and distributed tracts in flood affected in Khammam district: Bhadrachalam, Sarapaka, shbhasnagar Modikunta, Musallamadu Aswapuram, Yettapaka, Jagaram, Mothi. During the month of July I visited Bhadrachalam, Sarapaka, subasnagar Modikunta, Musallamadu Aswapuram, Yettapaka, Jagaram and Mothi to preach the word of God and encourage to our associated churches and pastors in Khammam districts.

I also spend time with our Grace children home at Thrilapuram village and teach the bible stories and song the Banjara songs.

Prayer requests:

  1. Please pray for flood affected churches in Bhadrahcalam Khammam district our pastors looking for helping hands .
  2. Please pray for flood affected poor pastors, evangelist in Bhadrachalam Khammam districts, they lost churches and houses , no food , no good water to drink.
