During October, a further distribution of funds from Advent Christian General Conference’s BREAD OF LIFE Project was sent to some of YJM’s ministry partners. They have reported on their use of these funds as follows…
Pastor Ahaj Kumar Pani ministered to poor and needy believers in Odisha State. He commented…
“These people are living very poor and needy. They are living in rural areas. Please pray for this ministry and for their spiritual growth.”
Rev. B.Balu Nayak pastor of the Advent Christian Church in the Mahabubabad District of Andhra Pradesh State wrote to Mission Manager Immanuel as follows… (“Ayya” is a term of respect for those being addresses – much like “Respected Sir” in English)
“Greetings to you all in the most precious Name of our Lord and SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST,

At the same time as he was feeding the poor, a new District – Mahabubabad – was formed in Andhra Pradesh State and Pastor Balu Nayak’s church was able to celebrate by providing clothes (saris) for poor tribal widows. Once again, his ministries were featured in local newspaper reports.
