I am Pastor Yangala Nageswararao from Pasivedala, a village in the Kovvur Mandal region of the West Godavari District in Andhra Pradesh State, India. My wife, Aruna Ratna and I reach into the rural areas of Kovvur Mandal on the southeastern side of India to bring the gospel to the very poor and needy.
Rural Evangelism Ministry
Before I came to know Jesus as my savior I was a great sinner worshipping and praying to idol goddesses. I did many criminal activities against all other religions like Christianity, Sikhs, Muslims, Hindus, and others. Because of my crimes against these religions I was convicted in court as a religious criminal and sentenced to two years in jail.
While in jail the warden, whose name was Zachariah, told me about Jesus Christ. He gave me a Bible to read in my free time. As I continued daily reading I learned about my own sins and I started understanding what I was doing to Jesus Christ because of my actions. I spent much time in prayer, crying and repenting of all the sins I was learning about. I cried out to Jesus and he saved me. Now I am forgiven and Jesus Christ is my Savior and King. Immediately after this a court order was issued in my favor and I was released from jail.
I started ministering the gospel in the rural areas reaching the poor and need. These are the forgotten people in the Indian society. Very little is being done to help them survive much less help them overcome the poverty and hopelessness they face just to stay alive. Everywhere I went I always praised the Lord telling about the great sacrifice Jesus did in his life for us. With great joy and rejoicing I proclaimed the love of God as people in the outreaches responded and came to Jesus. The children were uplifted from the stories and songs as the adults would join in to bring great praise to our Lord and Savior. This is why we named the ministry Rural Evangelism Ministry.
Our vision is to bring the message of Jesus to the people of the rural areas and help them learn how to overcome their hard conditions. We are seeking ways to train them and raise their ability to provide for themselves. One way we are helping is with our widows and women sewing ministry. We train them in the skill of sewing, supply them with material, then we help the to get their own sewing machine.
Our main focus is teaching the Word of God. Besides showing how to life the Christian lifestyle, we teach the gospel and the doctrines of the Bible. We also provide Bibles to people when we can.
We gather food to distribute as much as possible.
We enjoy sharing the gospel and ministering the Love of God the most.
To help my wife and I in this work we have gathered and trained twenty pastors to go further into the remoted areas around Pasivedala, and the village of Nandamuru. We are having difficulty getting the a chapel suitable enough to fit all the people from our local community in for worship. We are constructing our own chapel to solve this problem.
Here are the Pastors that are under our leadership.
It is our desire to fulfill God's purpose in our lives by pressing further into the rural areas and continue sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ. Please help us with this vision by donating to help us reach those who are the poor and needy.
Thank you for your kindness.
Please remember to pray for us.
