Pastor Balu Nayak, leader of Balunayak Banjara Tribal Ministries, is based at Mahabubabad City but they do not have their own church/parsonage building and therefore operate their ministries from rented premises. They ask us to continue to pray that the Lord will enable them to have their own premises.
They do own a small church/accommodation building in one of their outreach villages - a smaller village called Baluthanda. The church is on the top floor and the accommodation on the ground floor.
May is mid- summer in India; it is the hottest month of the year and is the month when all the children have their annual holidays from school. It is also the month when many churches have their VBS – Vacation Bible Schools.
Pastor Balu Nayak has sent some pictures of the activities of their VBS this year – although their building is really quite tiny, they had a good number of children who appeared to enjoy their time together hearing the Gospel stories and being involved in other activities, including enjoying cooked meals together.
