NEWS LETTER FROM ANAND & GRACE AT MALAWI(SOUTHREN AFICA)
There are many people in the world love many things but God is Loving Malawi by sending His servants. Malawi is southern African Country, most of the people are traditionally Christians but no salvation. Few months ago government is changed and is ruling by Lady President. God wants to change in the lives of the people here in this way God sent us too here.
About Us: We are from south part of India, a state called Andhra Pradesh though we are born and brought in Guntur, God in his grace and love saved us from eternal punishment through His beloved Son the Lord Jesus Christ and called for His service 2002 marvelously led us 10 years in His service in Vizianagaram, North east Andhra. Since we found the need and after many Prayers God has brought us to Malawi in the last month with 2 small kids to serve Him.(Philip saw the revival in Samaria but the Holy Spirit led him to meet Ethiopian treasurer in the wilderness Acts 8:5-26,29-40 here in Africa God is showing us the same experience)
God has graciously met our needs through His people and we are living in rented home, its much costlier than India where we were and also the food stuff expensive too. Thank God we have teacher who come to home to teach local language Chichewa and she teaches English to my wife so that we can understand the people and culture well. Please pray that God may provide us the house rent in time and also for Chichewa learning.
Our God given daughter Anny Suma is going to local school namely Blantyre Baptist Academy and is in preschool. Praise God that he has provided for her first term school fee. There are international schools but the fees are higher than local. We did join her in local school that she can understand that there is no racial barriers( Our Lord went to Samria) Please pray for her health as well as she can make friends at school and understands the lessons of her teacher.
Our God given son Jack Harry is enjoying and playing in home. Pray that he can grow in the fear of God. For now he is suffering with fever we find it difficult with good doctor and medicines we have to depend on our native place We are praying for Jack to join in School in the coming New year. Please also remember to pray for our Insurance is finished in this month 17th.We need to have International Insurance which is for 2 years.
About the Work of God: We are working with the small assembly at Blantyre called Bethel Chapel gathering every Sunday at School. Presently I am helping in the Bible study on Wednesday and preaching in Assembly meetings and in Fire station on every month 2nd Thursday with Dr. Jonathan Newell. My wife Grace has started Children meeting at home about 40 Children are coming every Sunday. God has helped us to distribute thousands of Challenge Good News Paper with the brethren in the Assembly in this area and villages. We could also visit the village Assembly(Place called Nampati) there I had privilege to share my testimony to many attendees. Please pray that Lord bless the seed sown and come out fruits. God willing will be visiting another village in next month. God willing we are praying to start Emmaus work here also as we did in India, Bill board Ministry (The Word sheet ministry in India) and Gospel Film ministry. Please pray for the 4 wheel vehicle is must needed for this ministry. We are now using public transport which is horrible and cheating, Sometimes Mr.Newell is helping with his vehicle.
We have not been supported by any Indian brethren Assemblies except from our Commending Assembly. We found there is no agency to represent or support any way. This is discouragement but God has been faithful to keep us until now. We greatly thank Him for his Goodness. We kindly request you please pray and support us as Lord leads to fulfill God’s work in this land.Also remember Bro.Suresh,full time worker at Fort Gospel Hall India.
