It gives us an immense pleasure to report you that we have successfully completed the ministry building construction at Chinnakodur (CKD) village and dedicated it for the glory of God. When we first thought about this building it felt like it would be impossible but God has proved once again that nothing is impossible with Him. Finally, after 3 years of fundraising God has allowed us to finish this building construction. It is so amazing to see how God opened the doors to fulfill His plan for General Baptist Ministries in India.
On the day of dedication, we had the honor of having a famous celebrity to attend the dedication service. His name is Raja, a Telugu movie actor who gave his life to Jesus few years ago and quit the movie industry to start his own ministry. A huge uninvited crowd came to see the actor, so we took advantage of it and preached the gospel.
There is so much need of God’s work to be done in this country, especially preaching the Gospel. Certainly, this facility will help us to do many things which will not be possible otherwise. We plan to use this facility not only as a church but as a home to many General Baptist outreach programs such as the Good Shepherd’s Children’s Home, Bible training center, and Lydia Sewing Center. Not only that but it will be a base of ministry that people will be able to know and come to for help. In the midst of oppositions, persecutions, and anti- Christian government God made one of our dreams and visions come true– to have General Baptist Ministry facility in India. A facility that holds and runs various ministries and projects to reach out to the unreached people of India.
We praise the Lord almighty for the call and vision He gave us for this country and thank every one of you for sowing your seed through your prayers and financial support to this ministry. We now would like to extend our invitation to all of you to pray and plan a mission trip to India to see what the Lord is doing here through General Baptists and enjoy this new facility.
