Light of Love

John 3:16-21

Prayer for the Day

Help us walk in your light, God. Draw us out of the shadows and into those transparent places where we can reflect your love for the world. Lure us from darkness into the light of new creation, that place where our willful separation from you is unnecessary and overcome. We are children of your Light. With thanks and praise we pray.

How will others recognize you as a child of light today?

  1. Greetings to you from Pastor David Pulagala, Bendapudi village,

    East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh state, India.

    We feel it is a great privilege for us to meet you through this e-mail. First of all I would like to thank you and appreciate of your great task of reaching the millions in world. When I checked your webpage, I am very much impresed by the wonderful work you are doing.

    Really the Lord is using you and dear family to reach out to the millions . Please let me introduce myself to you.

    I Davidraju Pulagala am doing the gospel work in the neglected and interior villages in remote and tribal region of
    Andhra Pradesh state in India. We have been working for the last 10 years reaching out to the neglected villages. My father is also a pastor and he did very wonderful pioneering work amongst remote village people and also tribal people groups. As he is getting old, I took up all the responsibilities of my family besides my busy gospel work.

    Most of the people work with are illiterate, ignorant and superstitious. It is very challenging to work with such people
    groups. They are open to the gospel but it takes time to convince them. This is the reason we often conduct village outreaches with a team of 10 pastors and lay men. Several villages are being reached so far and still so much is to be done. In some of the villages there is no facility for transportation execpt walking or going by a bi-cycle, even there is no electricity and no hospitilization so people suffer from different viral fevers and contagious dieseases. With such people groups we are working. Please pray for us as move and go out to reach such people groups to be heard the gospel. Hundreds are being reached through our frequent village outreaches but millions are there to be reached. Hundreds of the villages are there to be reached out with the gospel. We have been trying our level best to reach these people with various outreaches but we do not have enough funds. and any funding agency is helping us. By faith we go and reach these
