How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news, who publishes peace, who brings good news of happiness, who publishes salvation, who says to Zion, “Your God reigns.” (Isaiah 52:7)


Pastor Suresh Varigeti writes:
Praise the Lord! We had an exciting outreach. We visited an interior village called Cheepurupalli, approximately 50 KM from Rajahmundry. I would like to share our experience from this joyful outreach.

Let me share about the village. It is situated among the hills close to river Godavari. People are tribal and idol worshipping Hindus. Extremely poor earning food on a daily basis. We have one of our associate Pastor and his wife working in this village preaching the Gospel. God is using Pastor Satyanandam and his wife powerfully. There has been a tremendous transformation in this village which once was a completely Hindu village. There was no hope or joy. Chained in the clutches of witchcraft and idol worship. It is the power of the message of the Cross that has started to transform the lives of the villagers. There was a great opposition to the preaching of the Gospel. But the committed pastor couple continued to share the message persistently. God used us to encourage this couple to keep pressing in. They are an example of how they are blessed through the monthly fellowship meetings and trainings received. Through their committed ministry they won more than 100 souls and still winning. Now they continue to gather in this worship center to worship and pray regularly. We are going to conduct a three day Gospel crusade here in the next month. Believing for the whole village to come to Christ. Please pray.

When we visited this village last Sunday. We were able to witness true joy in worshiping the Lord. God used us to minister to them. Pastor Suresh shared on ‘Seeking God Wholeheartedly’. From “If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.” Jeremiah 29:13 and Mark 2. At the end of the preaching all the church knelt as they were led by the Spirit of God to pray and seek God. After that we laid hands and prayed for the sick. After hearing the message other villagers brought the sick people to be prayed. There was a woman named Venkata Laxmi who has been suffering from epilepsy for about 5 years. She falls into fire and water when she is under convulsions. She came and asked for prayers. As we prayed over her we proclaimed healing and deliverance from the sickness and bondage in Jesus Name. She was touched by the Spirit of God. We are believing for a complete healing.

There were many children who attended this meeting. Bobby presented them with a Sunday School Bible which Brother Dan wanted to be distributed to Children. Young people were counseled to seek God’s will in their lives instead of living a life without direction. We have taken our Children from the Children’s Center. They sang worship songs as a group and shared about how they are growing in the Lord at the Center.

The congregation is a joy to watch. They thanked us for visiting and asked to visit every Sunday if possible. We are looking forward to the upcoming Gospel meetings this Church is going to conduct in the next month. Pray that we win this whole village to Christ.  Pray for this congregation to keep growing in the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. pray for our team of Pastors. Thank you.

In Christ,
Your Brother
Suresh Varigeti
