Doing all these activities mainly in villages is to see people taste the love of CHRIST.
A Ministry with a Vision to Reach both Jews and Gentiles...!.
Activities like church plantation, supporting village pastors, helping poor students and extending medical help are spread into the Andhra Pradesh districts named Srikakulam, Vizianagaram, Visakhapatnam, East Godavari, and Krishna. Started an orphanage in 2009 with 30 kids on average and making the way into many huts to spread the fragrance and the taste of CHRIST 's love. Also on fortnightly and monthly basis reaching and feeding hundreds of old people (no one to look after them), HIV + people / families, leprosy people and beggars on the streets. Thirty deep Village pastors & tribal areas are being helped every month and visiting them often to see the programmes and progress in their villages, in the churches and in their respective families. The above said all activities, among Indian villages and poor communities and surviving families are being done without any hindrance because of the great Christian country USA (from only church which is having 235 years of history on par with the country's Independence). Its roots have reached many countries and reached India too for CHRIST like Christian Ministries to touch and save many hearts.
Without the help of the anointed pastors, committed elders and loving congregation , the G-D's work of feeding and encouraging many families since 2005 would have not exist here in India. Praying and planning for more and more activities for the betterment of lives and precious SOULS. CHRIST like Christian Ministries India, is one of the best investing fields for anyone to see years of growth and expansion of God's Kingdom with continuous commitment.
