Tatapudi Christian Grace Ministries
Ministry Type: Translocal
Joined FMIN: September 2012
Biography: Christian Grace Ministries is actually a group of small churches in different villages around the village that Rajesh and Suneetha live. There are 54 villages close with very poor living conditions. Rajesh and his brother Ramesh work together in ministry, and the churches were actually established by their father Assirwadam, who transferred to heaven. Rajesh tells us, "Our believers are too poor, but rich in faith." The ministry focus is extending His kingdom in these surrounding villages. The newest church is located in the village of Mareduback. The people in this village do not know Jesus so they are drawing the people to Him by worshipping Him in truth and spirit through His word and deeds.
The churches have children's ministry and an active youth ministry, who are desiring to share the word of God in the villages by taking books, Bibles and handbills. Evangelism projects include social services such as medical camps and distributing Bibles, church planting, Christian music and sewing center for the poor. They plan to build a pastors training center for preparing the soldiers for harvest and an animal project where they will be able to give a cow or buffalo to help pastors.
Strengths: Rajesh, Suneetha and Ramesh are all passionate about helping the poor villagers, as well as helping the pastors who are working in the villages. They work to be able to give support and food. Rajesh tells us his strengths include trusting Jesus in times of trouble, singing, music, leading the congregation and translation.
