Hello Friends, Family, Brothers, and Sisters,



I am starting this campaign on behalf of Balu Ratnam Motru. He is Pastor of Ramagiri Baptist Church near Anantapur, India. In April 2015 my wife was able to travel to India and do missions work with Balu and his team. They traveled to many small towns and villages in Andhra Pradesh spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. Many of the people they encountered had never heard the name of Jesus but received the Gospel with joy. Due to the dominant religion in India being Hindu, there is a very prejudice cast system that labels certain people as the "untouchable". These are the ones Balu and his ministry are most often in contact with and ministering to. Balu and the faithful believers of his church, though constantly in need themselves, desire to meet the needs of others around them. Most importantly they want to share the Gospel of Jesus.

I say all of this not to make you feel guilty but to express the need my friend, Balu, and his church are facing. They know that God is good and He will provide for them. I also have no doubt that God will provide a way for them to see Christ glorified all over  Andhra Pradesh.

I'm asking you to pray for the work that is already being done, pray for the work God will do, and to partner with Balu and Ramagiri Baptist Church by donating to help cover the expenses associated with ministering to villages all across the state.

Every penny made in this campaign will go directly to Balu and his ministry in India. Though this site doesn't charge a fee, the credit card companies do. Even so, I will personally cover that fee and make sure that the full amount you donate is given to Balu's ministry. 

If you have any further questions or comments feel free to contact me:

Thank you so much for taking the time to look over this and prayerfully consider giving to our brother Balu to spread the Gospel in India.

Update #1

Much ministry has continued to happen in Andrah Pradesh! VBS has been successful and many children have heard the good news of Christ Jesus! Balu and his team are still hard at work. It has been very hot there, and even now at 5pm it is 99 degrees. They did receive some much needed rain last week and praise God for that. God is at work in India and it is a blessing to hear of all that is going on.

I've received word from Balu that ministry is going well. VBS has been very fruitful and many children have heard the Gospel! You can look at some pictures under the "gallery" tab.

Here is a message Balu sent me this morning, "What a great joy of explaining the Christ love to those kids throughout this week and sharing them the Christ love by action songs and stories and dramatically.  We are blessed by these kids.  Please continually pray for us."
He also sent his gratitude for all the support that has been coming from each of you who have prayed and given. "Thank you for your prayers and support towards our ministry brother it's been a great blessing to us."
Thank each of you! God it's doing a great work in southern India through the ministry of Balu and his church! It's great to be a small part of that!
