Pastor Balu Nayak is the leader of a ministry known as Balunayak Banjara Tribal Ministries, based in the town of Mahabubabad in the State of Telengana. He is a member of the Banjara tribal community himself and ministers in two other areas – Baluthanda, and Salarthanda – as well as in Mahabubabad
He heard the call of the Lord to this ministry sixteen years ago and has been ministering the Gospel and carrying out various social services for his people since then. They originally had no buildings in any of their ministry areas and held services in the open air under trees, in homes and occasionally in rented tents. They have subsequently built a small church building in Baluthanda and are slowly building a larger church and accommodation building in Mahabubabad.
Their building at Baluthanda (pictured) is already too small for the congregation, and Pastor Balu Nayak is thanking the Lord for that problem, but he has recently written to Mission Manager Immanuel about another problem that they have.
