Dubai City Church and Abu Dhabi City Church

By Kerry Mauldin
By God’s grace and blessing, we are back from the villages and have made it thru torrential rains, many flooded rivers and thankfully have missed no assignments.
We are wrapping up the balance sheets today.  We gave all the churches and had money for 1 well that we did not give but will see the fruitfulness of Dojjalabai Thanda village and prayerfully be able to give in Feb.  They have water a 5 minute walk from the church and want a well on church land, but only a few believers and it needs to bless the whole village…we must wait.
We gave all the other 7 wells…
Today, many people will come requesting things and many prayers to be given…
Tomorrow we fly to Dubai and speak at Dubai City Church Thursday night, Fujeirah on Friday and Abu Dhabi City Church Sunday night…
Good things ahead and so so thankful for you all holding us in prayer!
We gave right at 40 churches and 7 wells this trip and dedicated more than that!!
With love, thanks and prayers,

Signs and Wonders

 By Kerry Mauldin
Wonderful day with no rain and many dedications!!
At Uttlapalli Village, we dedicate church given by Vinita AG.  Here last year we baptized in 55 gallon drum behind a tarp because hindus were upset.  We gave to start church and it now runs over 50 adults and 40 children and growing weekly.
One crippled girl from birth, 4 weeks ago can now walk.
We prayed for infilling of Holy Spirit and heaven was so real and a couple got their heavenly language.  Gave matching gift to put stone floor and extend the church–no more room…
Srinivas Nagar–we dedicate well, Melody gave in memory of her late husband who passed 7 years ago.  It has sweet water and 40 church members and all neighbors were so thankful.  One pump of handle and water comes!!
Narsapuram–so truly blessed me!!  This church built by Tula Rosa NM and well by the Haymes family, has grown from 50 to 70 with added 50 children.  This is an alive church.
last year we prayed for a boy Krishnan, 18, who was born deaf-mute.
I had forgotten, but his father Hamu Niak, a stone polisher, brought him up and both were so so excited.  They shared how after the prayer last year—now Krishnan can hear and speak.  He had such a huge smile as he told his name, what village he is from, his fathers name …  PRAISE THE LORD!
Last year, his father pledged to do marble floors stones in the church and it is beautiful job as a stone polisher…
In the churches where God is showing signs and wonders–which are so many churches, they are growing much.
In Keshavapuram, we dedicated a church and plaque given in memory of Judy Henry of Muscogee-a friend who so encouraged and prayed and is now with the Lord!
Nice church that we gave today for flooring etc.
One woman was one of many who stood and told of God’s grace and love.
She was some 55 and a widow since age 26.  She shared she was widowed and both of her daughters husbands also had passed and they were widows…
She shared how now she has no debt and God is taking care in spite of all the challenges…she set down.
I asked:  “sister, is your name Naomi?”  All said, “YES, that is her name.”
I am so thankful for God’s goodness and grace.  He does do miracles and so so many are testified about in everyday here:TB, leprosy, deaf-mute, babies given etc…
He sees us thru daily and keeps us covered in blessing and protection!!
Just crossing many rivers the past week with so many low water “bridges”? has been so challenging with so many bridges washed out and bumper deep waters… having to throw stones in holes on bridges to make it across…  HE PROTECTS and does “Signs and Wonders”!!
Thanks for your prayers!!  2 more days in villages…

Heart Prepped and Ready…

By Kerry Mauldin
Just 3 days left in the villages and much has been accomplished by Gods grace.
It is truly amazing what all can be done when God gives favor and wisdom and we choose to walk in it.
One lesson really jumped out at me today:
We went to Lakkavaram Village and people were sitting on a tarp on thefoundation 20×40 of where they want a church.  We are went to houses and streets and compelled people to come and hear the story…
70 adults go to the church and 50 kids.  They have been meeting under the trees and want a nice church.
We sang and Jim shared, I taught on giving and they began to give 224,000 rs and we matched 100,000 to build the church.
These people were just concluding a 40 day fasting prayer for the church and their hearts were ready and we also blessed with what they need to get church built!
Their hearts were so prepared!!
Went to dedicate church in Kothagudem.”New Village”–the church was painted a pretty.  Pastor had come last Feb and cried out for help.  We taught him and put rupees in his hand as a test that he would teach his people.  We drove far today and only 3 of his 40 members were there, besides a lot of kids and others we compelled to come.
Pastor shared he had borrowed 60,000rs to complete the church at 24% interest and the people had given nothing… He wanted us to help him.
I had to correct and rebuke him.  He failed the test in that he did not teach the people, but made excuses for them and then borrowed the money.  Also, with us coming, only 3 show up…
We told him we would come again in Feb. if he would get his people there and teach them.
What a difference preparation in a village makes!
Last, in Mellacherlu “Many Lakes Village”–35 met in small 12×15 room.
They have land and want a 20×40 Prayer Shed and need 60,000rs.
We ate lunch and taught them.  Meeting here 5 years, they have their goal low.
They want shed with no walls and will add walls later.
We matched 1 rupee for each 2 they gave, but if they raised more and stepped out, I felt impressed to help more.
They raised 41,000 and we added 20,000 so they can build exactly what they expressed.
I hoped their faith would step up, but they did not over extend themselves.  “This is first church we have built and are not sure how to go about it”, they shared!!
Lord that we set our vision high enough, prepare our hearts and walk in Your wisdom and guidance!!
Your prayers have been so greatly appreciated and have born fruit!!  Thanks so so much!!
Melody, Kerry, Jim and Joshua!!

“He is at the Gate, Don’t Disturb me”…

 By Kerry Mauldin
Today was more torrential rain, roads washed out and challenges, but awesome..
MarriKunta (Big Tree) village, right on banks of canal.  We went first time last Oct. and shared Christ with the many who lived in thatch sheds on canal bank.  Today, several stood in church under construction and shared specifically how one year ago they heard the “bracelet story” about Jesus and accepted and took baptism and now one year have joy and no regrets.
The church has grown by 20 to 50 adults and many miracles are taking place, getting much attention in village!!
Dedicate well in Adivemla, drilled by Webbers Falls AG.  Good sweet water about 5 feet from church and no other wells around.  All others were dry holes!!
Church is now being built by the well…
Arvallapally–Dedicate church by Red Oak AG–last year was thatch church and though not finished, they meet inside and we helped give to finish…
Pastor Joshua and Pramila (sweet savor) had no children in Feb, so we prayed.  Today, he so excited shared that 25 days ago they had twins.  Born after 8 months, the tiny boy passed after 1 week, but little Huldah Grace is now 25 days.
No prenatal in villages for premies…  This couple gives us joy…so thankful!!
Alfa Nagar–dedicate wellby Mountain Home AG.  On banks of lake and church built by Haskell AG… Good humble Pastor…
The village that so touched me today is PillaMari–“Childs Tree” Village–
We walk into small house where 30 people meet for church.  They want a prayer shed outside that 100 can sit under.  We have never been here and go to inspect…
Upon entering, first I see Peter.  He is 21and sitting in wheelchair and instantly I figured he has Muscular Dystrophy which I so understand.  He has a gentle smile, but can no longer lift his arms to shake hands.  You have to reach out and grab his hands…
After all the questions and details to figure building the church and all of us giving to build and having prayer, I turned to Peter.
They said he was a good singer…
He began to sing in his chair, “You are glorious, greatest light, King of Kings…”
beautiful voice in this challenged body…
But we sensed something…
Others spoke up…”Till 5 days ago, 21 year old Peter sang with his 19 year old brother Andrew, and they sang so beautiful together.
Andrew also had MD until 5 days ago.”  They related,
Andrew was on the cot and it was his time and his last words for this 19 year old boy:
” Jesus is coming for me, He is even now at the gate, don’t disturb me…” (they have gate to the house) and Andrew was with the Lord.
This was so fresh in their hearts and even as they shared, all I could do was choke on tears.
Now Peter was singing without Andrew, but still a gentle smile as he faces the same thing.
I can’t wait to come in Feb to dedicate Prayer Shed and walk these village streets with Peter and share Christ when its not raining…
Such a reminder, “HE IS AT THE GATE”
Love and appreciate you all so much and so thankful for encouragements…

Oxcart to Victory

Rain, Rain and more Rain…
It has been definite monsoon time, early, but trying to not let us slow us.
Went to first village Jaganath Thanda and pastor was leading us in along canal bank–only way into village.  Came to place the bank washed out and a 3 wheeled auto fell into the torrent of water…  We will have to come in February!
All along the roads, low water places are covered and is quite an adventure…
Midtanpalli–Came to dedicate a good church given by Canyon DEl Oro AG in Tuscon, AZ.  One young woman “Rupika” stood to share with huge smile.  Since coming to Christ 9 months ago at age 22 life has been so blessed!!  She took us to homes!!
I asked her what Rupika meant?  “It is the name you only gave me 9 months ago when you baptized me!!”
We named her Rebecca!!  Ha!!  Translation…
We went to her house…  Rebecca married at age 13, her husband died when she was 16, and now 22 has found Christ and no more fear or sickness that plagued her.  Many had seen the difference in her and today, her mother, aunt and several others made firm commitments to follow Christ and pull the deities-gods out of their houses!!
Kotapahad “Kings house Destroyed” village–Mud and water everywhere.
They harnessed a team of oxen to oxcart and we all climbed on and walked 1/3 of mile thru muck and mire with all the Christians following in a long line to the place a nice church is being built.  Incredible memory as we watch those 10 year old oxen dip their horns to get under the yoke and such strength to pull…
As the Christians all got a brick to sit on, on the foundation of a beginning of a church under stormy clouds, we taught and prepared hearts.  Every person joyfully gave for the church 111,250 rs and we match to build!!
Oxcart man in his dirty, simple lungi, gave 40,000.  What an awesome memory with laughter and joyful people to build Gods house and 7-10 hindus were among the gathered that accepted Christ and also gave.  Whole village is less than 10 years old in Christ!!
Sublade Village–“Sharp Blade” village–All are 8 years or less in Christ and together we taught and challenged and they gave 175,000rs and we matched to build a strong first church in the village!  These are spirit filled people who know how to come into the presence of God!!
By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
On 21/2 hour drive back to our cots (55 miles) We had an exhibition.  We came to place where torrents of water were crossing the road and in dark, holes were washed and people were trying to stand in knee deep water and direct motorcycles across with their loads.
We set in jeep watching and learning.  No one got hurt, but watching made you  want to laugh, but was not funny…Lord help us….
We made it back and it has poured all night!  I think of so many multitudes we see everyday who live under little plastic tarps over thatch with dirt floor.  Several sleep in the church beside us when they as travelers are stranded…
So thankful for your prayers and standing with us!!

Rooftop Lesson

In Feb. we climbed on a rooftop to dedicate a church in village called Kodada, CC ReddyColony, pastor Simon.
given by Faith Bible Chapel in Page AZ.  I was at first not so impressed…
When we first went, there were 25 people with good hearts so we gave and they built a nice church on the slab roof.  Today that church has grown to 60 and is so alive and growing.  They took us to neighboring village some 10 miles where we joined with them to build a first church in Naryanagudem, built by Roundup Cowboy Church.
Today we went to X Road-Kodada, Few miles from CC Reddy Colony.  We helped them build a nice church on a rooftop similar to CC Reddy Church.  However as we dedicated, we encouraged them also to give a missions offering of thanksgiving to help another church get started.  We prayed and only 3 people gave.  Two were visitors and one was pastors daughter of about 15 years old.  When she gave, he was standing near here and some on our team saw him reach out with his foot and kick her.  Only 1500 rs were given $12….  This pastors wife stood and said, “If they give to this, they won’t give to help us…”
My heart hurt for them.  They have a beautiful church all 100% complete, painted and so nice, but with hearts like that, challenges are ahead.
When we entered Naryana Village as the last of the day to dedicate the mission church alongside pastor Simon–built by Cowboy Church,
They met us with drums pounding.  Roads were ankle deep mud from all rains and I was struggling to walk after falling earlier and my knee was going out…
Two guys grabbed hold and walked me thru the village to the beautiful church and so so many gathered.  All stood in church yard as drums pounded giving shouts of praise.  Joshua and Jim were right in the middle dancing a victory dance with all the men with women all gathered around shouting praise to God!
We cut the ribbon and all went in!  Church holds about 150 seated crosslegged on the floor, and it was packed with people looking in the windows.
All got on their knees to sing and the drums pounded out incredible rythym and all sang with everything in them.  Made tears come to my eyes and keep swallowing the lump in my throat as hands and drums pounded out the staccato rythym…  These people are in unity and about 100 have taken baptism and many filled with Holy Spirit.  We shared message of salvation with up to 50 that came as unbelievers….they all prayed a strong loud prayer of salvation.
We began to pray and prayer totally filled the air and when quiet came, we began to sing universal song…Allelujah…
Two separate women shared of visions and word from God,
“There will soon be a great shout and Jesus is telling us He is coming soon”
these village women, who were hindu before, related!
Many have been having visions and God speaking to them in the congregation that was all hindu previous, but has come to experience Gods presence and power…led by young Simon in early 30’s.
What a difference in two roof top experiences…Like Peter, I want the vision on rooftop to be life changing for Gods glory, and not selfish.
By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
Dedicate Gudibanda,(temple stone village)  given by Tula Rosa CC in NM.  Good nice church building with Life!  Also a Church given by Okema AG
and gave for 3 more churches…
Good things happening and so many hearing Gospel and churches growing!!
Have 6 more villages today….
Keep praying!!  Such peace when know you are covered in prayer!
With so much thanks,

What Good can come from simple Shed?

 From Pastor Kerry Mauldin
We came to Ganugubanda (wine press ) Village, and pulled up to loud speaker blaring from under a long heap of banana leaf thatch hut.  It was an old hut used some 4 years with a simple dirt floor and set of drums at the front.  70 people could squeeze under the pile of leaves with people out front.  These are spirit filled people who love the Lord!!  We got rice tarps in front and people came.
We taught on giving…
They have a piece of land bought on main road and want to build a church to seat 200, with a slab, concrete roof.  We taught and together all of us committed almost 7000 $ for the church.  We gave offering from Mt. Sherman AG who sold knives to build a church in India…  This will be a great church!!
All the people walked from the hut to new land and stood in circle holding hands and we gave shouts of praise and prayer for what God is going to do!!
We gave dedication for small, but nice concrete church given by Miami Apostolic Church.  The 20 people truly love the Lord and have very humble good pastors who husband and wife literally built the church after coming here with nothing 6 years ago after God healed pastor from death and he committed to serve the Lord. Had to speak into their lives and encourage them…
Ykuntapuram (heaven) village, we came to dedicate a simple $500 shed.
Only church in the village of these Banjara gypsy people!
When we saw it, I was so disappointed.  It looked like a cattle stall.  Had a good roof and metal, concrete poles and one side was old, stone plastered fence as back wall.  It had dirt floor  and a rice tarp over the dirt.
Pastor Prasanth was beaming.  “7 years I have prayed for a meeting place for these Banjaras and now you have helped us and 35 come Sunday at 11 for prayers!”  He and his wife and others sang with all their heart and as we split in teams to go to houses, hindu people listened so intently and committed lives while pledging to come to the “church”.  Sincerity was strong in their faces and hearts as they stepped forward.
Prasanth said, “in 2-3 months we will put a stone floor down as new people come and we will fix this nice.”  He asked nothing except for a bicycle to go the 7 km (4.2 miles) to the other village he is the only pastor in.  Joy we gave…
When you see such thanks and joy, it is huge blessing to step beside…
We spoke straight into the heart of Ganugubanda village pastor and strongly, clearly warned and encouraged him to keep his heart and hands pure as they begin to build and go from banana leaf church to a nice church.
He seemed to hear with his heart!!
Thinking of Jesus who came from a “shed” and many would be ashamed by His simple beginnings.  But He changed a world!!!
Lord help us not to look down on the simple beginnings, but see things the way You would see them!!
Thank you all so so much for standing with us and praying!!

Branch is Tied into the Vine

 By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
Rain came hard this AM as we went to the villages!!
at Gorenkapalli in pouring rain we dedicate a church given by Abundant Life!!
Pastors were so thankful and blessed!!
We were there last Oct and gave for the church.  Johan and Rageny, pastors had just lost a baby girl in death and we prayed God would restore with a baby.
we named and dedicated Samuel who is now 3 months old!  Named him Samuel as a fulfillment of a promise from God and he is dedicated to serve the Lord!
The church has grown from 15 to 30 adults this year!!
At Thatikula Village–Toddy Tree Village–We dedicate a prayer shed where Satyam (truth), came to the Lord 8 years ago, but none of his family.  Last year, we shared with his family and when we set with them, the look on their faces was terrorizing to us—(get out of here and don’t bother us) but they listened and several accepted Christ.  Satyam and his brother poured anointing oil all around a shiva temple and the family vowed to build a house for the Living God.
We dedicate that church today.  It is right beside a river and about 30 were there as we prayed, celebrated, cut cake and shared Christ with several who had not accepted!
God has so poured out His blessing on this family.  Their Chili pepper shop is doing well and blessed in every way as they are the first in the village to step out for Christ!!!
Korlapahad (Branch Village)–We had a late lunch early supper and saw where church is needed.  No other church in whole village.  We walk to visit in hindu homes and at center of village we gave bracelets and some 200-300 people totally surrounded us and we began to share.  Eventually they quieted down and listened very well as we clearly shouted the message.  A loud unison of voices prayed the prayer of salvation and we spoke into many hearts that were unbelieving.
Jim got up and taught the 100 or so kids down front a song with motions and all enjoyed!!
Joshua is a magnet to not only all the teen boys, but multitude of teen girls who all wanted a picture with him…
In the dark some 50-60 gathered at the church place and we taught them and joined with them to build a church (given by Huntsville Evangel).
The day ended on a great high as it is so much joy to have so so many gathered to accept and then press press press in for prayer…
I know God heard the many cries that these people have as they call out to Him and we joined with them!!
The Branch is was getting tied into the Vine!!
With love, thanks and prayers,

Wells of Salvation

By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
Awesome fruitful day in many villages!!
Went to Tripurarum to dedicate the well given in honor of Rose and Harold Hull’s 50th anniversary.  They have walked nations with us in the past and Harold has gone to be with the Lord.  The well is right in front of the church we built in 2010.  It has grown from 15 to 70 adults and growing and learning!!
we went to hindu homes around the church.  These homes have been greatly blessed by the well.  Mannamma and Siadalu live right by the well and she had been making 15, 20 minute trips daily to carry water.  Now she had 20′ to carry and their hearts were wide open to hear the Gospel.  Both accepted Christ and agree to come first time to church and pull the gods…
The 2nd well dedication was at Hamu Thanda, Banjara (gypsy) village in memory of my Grandma and Grandpa CF and Ollie Mauldin who pastored many years till Grandpa died in 1962.  What a joy to have the heritage they passed down…
These tribals are so humble and giving.  Live in simple houses, but the church given by Verdigris AG is now beautiful!!  Painted and marble floor in simple village.  We visit hindu homes and 15 adults set as we share bracelets of salvation.  They began to talk strong, asking questions and not wanting to pray like a parrot and repeat some words.  Much explaining and English to Telegu to Banjara translations finally won them over.
Pastor and his wife gave their best hospitality and so want us to promise to come back.  700 families and 10 are Christian so far and rest all worship idols…
Now the people will all be coming to the church for water and hearts will open to breaking the curse of sin, sickness and poverty thru the blood of Jesus.
Went to Dokallabavi Thanda–“Stomach well” village- Pastor was not at the small unfinished church so we went to crossroads shops and set to have chili’s and chai.  We gave bracelets and quickly 50 people were standing around us in circle as we did “street meeting”.  They listen quiet and some want to follow Christ.  One young man, a bus driver, was first to speak up.  If a pastor was in this village, we would follow.  This man never preaches, he gets a pension and is only in his house.  We promised follow-up…
Later encouraged, but spoke straight to the pastor, rebuking in a building up way…
So many tools are available to reach a world for Christ!
Thank you all for strengthening our hands…
Dedicate Venganagudem church–nice church that Oolagah AG gave to build!!
Dedicate Haliya Colony Church, built in memory of pastor Notchie Twist in Shulter, OK.  Churchhas grown to 50 adults from 30 just this year since church is built.  We set among the plastic thatch tents many live in and share Christ and enjoy the limes they gave from over our heads…
Fruit is so good!!  6 more villages today!!  Long good days!!
With so much thanks,
Jim, Joshua, Melody and Kerry

Hundreds of Voices

 By Kerry Mauldin
One of greatest sounds in the world is hearing hundreds of voices praying in unison…
We were in Pullicherla (tiger) Village and stop at a school.  They have 329 students and many were there.  Jim is in his element in front of all those kids, teaching “I Am Somebody” , because God loves me…
Sharing Christ and all those children, sitting crosslegged barefoot on the ground in perfect rows, wearing all alike uniforms and the boys with ties…
eyes closed and sincerely praying as a higher pitched unison calls out to Jesus…
These are the blessings!!  A young woman started the school and now has 2 buses and is currently meeting under the trees with the children, but in process of building a 5 room school house with more rooms to come.  She needs about $9000 to complete and we prayed with her standing on the land and brick construction going on…
She is bold and most of students are hindu…
We gave 2 churches today and dedicated Dasari Nemalipuram that Stigler AG gave.  They needed flooring and we taught and 2 strangers to the villages each gave 10,000rs and we matched what was given for steps and floor…
That 2 strangers gave for a church that was not even there church.
Most of the people are in cotton fields.  Masses of people are packed into tractor wagons to point of overflowing and come from all over to be cotton pickers!!  I only imagine back in 1930’s the migrant workers flooding areas to pick fruit or cotton and camped in little tents and cooking fires and working long days in the fields…
The fields truly are ripe for the harvest.  We must work with urgency!!
Love, prayers and so so much thanks for praying!!

Shouting Battle on the Street

 By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
Went to Devarakonda area today dedicated a church and gave 3 more churches.
At Pasunura “many cows village”, we dedicated the nice brick Prayer Shed as the
first and only church in town.  We gave pastor Prahbu and wife a water buffalo to help them make a living and shared Christ with many.
Here came Shaker, 22, with polio, walking with sticks on the tips of his toes and pressing on to make it one rugged step after another.
We had given him a pair of goats and now he has 3 goats and doing well in spite of living alone since both parents are passed away.  This young mans gentle determined spirit goes straight into my heart and brings tears and joy at the same time!!
Vaddipalta village there is no church, but 28 believers have come to Christ and taken baptism. Pastor was hindu until 7 years ago and served Jesus along with other gods until 2 years ago when he committed and was filled with Holy Spirit and went to 6 month Bible school.  Now he has bought land in main part of village and wants a church….
We look at land, but people around are not in unity with him.  We set under trees on main road and many people gather as we share Christ.  They listen very well, till one man began to shout loudly, “Why can we not worship all gods?” he disrupted everything….
Come to find out, it was pastors own brother shouting…
Pastor has stood as first in the village for Christ and it is very contentious.
I gave this brother the challenge… “When quiet tonight, ask the Living God to speak to your heart and verify if the story of this Jesus is real that you heard today…”
The brother finally quieted down and took the challenge.
We prayed the prayer of salvation with many in this village and joined with them to build the church.
One woman there for 4 years has a giant tumor on her hip.  It is huge and like a football in size.  Poor and no way to get it removed.  We prayed and gave money and pastor will take her to Hyderabad 3 hours on bus for surgery…
Late into the night, sitting on the ground with buffaloes around in the house yards and people gathering to hear the Gospel.  All villages with no church, but people are stepping up and coming to Christ!!
We must have urgency to make the most of all that God has blessed us….
Thank you all so much for praying and notes of encouragement!! Nothing like it when you note people have got your back…
Love thanks and prayers,

Village of Sorrow

By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
This mission has been so awesome in many ways, and had challenges in others!

We are healthy and blessed, but this area had political turmoil and all buses shut down and we struggled to find reliable transportation.  We got a taxi (5 plus 1) and 9 of us and all our luggage inside.  Has no shocks and so so slow to go hundreds of miles…  Opportunity to send email for prayer cover has been so challenged!!
We went to remote area of villages near the quarries.
We pull up to Chinthalapeta (Sorrow Village) and are greeted by some villagers.
We follow these bare footed friendly people into a thicket of scrubby trees where they had cleared out an area and swept it clean and put a circle of plastic folding chairs.
It was like as a kid when we had a secret place to go make a fort…
This is where they met for service and the land is given for a church.
30 adults and children set crosslegged on the tarp as we share about Christ and taught.  They so much want a church as there is no church at all here.
These are hard working people.  One young woman started with 1 goat 7 years ago and now has 25 to go with a captivating smile that filled her face as it flowed out of a heart full of hunger for Jesus.
We gave matching amount and these people gave for the church!
Many were watching from around in front of their small houses and we went and shared.  One woman said “NO” she would not leave here gods and pray to Jesus, but by end of visit, she and all were waving with huge smiles as we left…
“Our parents named this SORROW VILLAGE”… but these people are choosing joy!

Noorjahan–Light of the World– Update from Pastor Kerry Mauldin

 Update from Pastor Kerry Mauldin
 We start to walk into the village…”It is a long walk” they said.  Next thing,  4 men pounding drums in unison make a line in front of us and we begin to follow these 4 bare footed leaders who announce our coming.  People begin to crowd around us from the simple houses.  They are touching us and shaking hands and welcoming…
We walk all thru town to where chairs are set under a tarp.  About 140 people gather and we share the HOPE that we have.
This reminds me of the donkey that came into the barn at the end of the day and shares with all the animals.  “You wont believe the day I had…  I picked up a hitch hiker on the road, he related.  As I walked along, people began to come and put palm branches down and even their clothes so I would not soil my hooves.
They began to welcome me and Greet me in the name of the Lord.
Amazing, you won’t believe, but they even said, “Lets make him our king!!!”
Best day I have ever had!!!

Wisdom to help the Widows of pastors–India villages

When we go next week to the villages, we so need wisdom on who and how to help.  I just received this and many other requests for churches and wells….  When you read of someone keeping up the Good Fight and running the race in spite of challenges, it makes me want to step up and help!  But we have found thru the years, it is best to inspect and not just expect…

Our days will be full and so many many villages to inspect and prayerfully know how or when to help. 
Melody, Joshua Heilig, Jim Eastman and I make up the team going Oct 7 to the villages!!
We are counting on you to provide a prayer covering and by God’s grace, we will dedicate 59 churches and give for about that many more and a multitude of people will find Christ as we strengthen the hands of the pastors and bless the widows and handicapped!!
With love, thanks and prayers,

 Request report no: 16; from Pastoramma. K.Mary – Turkapally village …
To Rev. Kerry Sir,
AD. Jaya Prabhakar Sir &
Pastor. J. Emmanuel,
                              Sir, I am Mrs. K. Mary, wife of Late Pastor. Barnabas. My husband served the Lord for 15 years as Pastor before he rested in the Lord after suffering from dengue fever. To do not stop the God’s given duty , since my husband’s death I took the responsibility of serving the Lord’s purpose in Turkapallyvillage ..
Sir my husband had bought 200 yards of land ( which is in 30Ft x 60Ft ) for the purpose of constructing a Church in Turkapally village. We had laid the basement and erected pillars at the construction site. About 60 to 70 members come from nearby villages to attend the Prayer Services we uphold at the under construction site. But now few of our regular members have stopped coming to attend Prayer Services due to insufficient space.
I studied up to 10th standard and I live with my two children – daughter has completed 12th standard and my son is studying in 10th standard. I am trying hard to keep the members united in the Lord as a Church.  I Preach to encourage and strengthen the weakening Spirits and help them to stand firm in their Faith in Christ.
Sir I humbly request you to consider my poor condition and help me complete the Church construction. Except you I know no one to seek help from. Please Pray for me , my children and for the incomplete Church construction…. Thanking you…!!
Yours in Christ,
Lady Pastor. K.Mary,
Turkapally village …

Thank you letter no:1 ; from Pastor. V.Mark – translated by Jovita Elizabeth….

We leave 2 weeks from today, Oct 7-Nov 13 for India and the villages, UAE for ministry and Jordan and Israel.
All is coming together very well!!
By God’s grace I today got my passport and visa back after 6 weeks challenge…
Please hold us in prayer as we go.  This world is in such turmoil–read today of 85 Christians killed in Pakistan the same day 68 Christians killed in shopping mall in Kenya.
I have total peace about going, but have such an urgency in my heart to touch as many lives for God’s glory-thru the blood of Christ-as quickly as possible!
We must stir the zeal and be diligent!!
Thank you for holding us in prayer!  If you do not want to receive these updates and walk thru the villages with us and commit to pray, Please let me know now and I will take you off the reception list.  Once overseas, it is challenging to make adjustments.
When I read the brief translated note below, it brings me such joy!!  Lives touched and God gets the glory…but it is your investments and prayers that make it all possible.
We have many villages to inspect 45-60, for possible churches that are applied for.
9 Villages at least have asked for wells… Widows and handicapped and pastors to help…
Many of you have invested in these things and God knows what is needed.
If anyone has used glasses, reading glasses, hard candy, a few beanie baby size toys, matchbox cars, tooth brushes or have made salvation bracelets–it will be a great blessing in the villages!!
Thank you so much for walking beside us and encouraging and praying!!

Thank you all so much for remembering to pray for the villages!!  Truly, many are coming to Christ and hearts being changed!  Govinda Reddy, 2 years ago had motorcycle wreck and broke his hip.  Now after much anguish, is back daily going to the villages.
When we read and remember the people, it brings joy!!
Those you pray for and then get results of healings…  God often heals after we are long gone and He gets all the glory!!
We have a great team going October 7 to India for ministry.
Nov 4 we meet (11 of us) in Amman, Jordan to learn and grow in Jordan and Israel–got a full team!! PTL!!
We will send out a prayer letter in weeks ahead, but be praying for the villages and people, that we will not miss one assignment.  Every church will be built, wells drilled and widows and handicapped helped… and that multitudes will come to Christ and take baptism!!
We are so thankful for those who have given for a church, well or “talents” and some give glasses, toothbrushes and some are making “salvation bracelets”.
Thank you each so much for standing with us in prayer, encouragement and help…

 Melody and I are so thankful for God’s saving grace and to see the results of the churches being built and filling up…
Thank you each for standing with us and helping with prayer, encouragement and giving!!
I just got this picture today of the Endupamal church plaque, given by Harrison Faith AGod and another at Parvedula the  well given by Mtn Home AGod.  We dedicated this church from DeQueen AG in Oct. and now added the well.
It is joy to see these villages growing and prospering as the first and only churches in the village are dedicated and filling with people wanting to know this Living God!
We must stay focused and have an urgency in our hearts to touch as many lives as possible for Christ.  It is to easy to get caught up with the cares of this life and world and loose the joy of touching lives for Christ!!
It was a joy to do Illinois Special Touch a couple weeks ago and have more camps to do…
By God’s grace and the hard work of the men and women in the villages, we will have more updates of people turning to Christ.
\Please keep praying!!

Update from Pastor Kerry Mauldin

Thank you for holding  those in the villages in prayer!!
When I see our coworker of 17 years, GovindaReddy, on a walker and sticks, I am so blessed!!  At age 54, 2 years ago, he had scooter accident and crushed his hip and leg, but is back up on sticks and going to the villages!  He has urgency in his heart!
Like Veeralapuram Village on 10th–many had come to Christ, no church or pastor there, but Govinda had led many to Christ and they pulled the gods…  After a year of Govinda not able to travel and no church, these drifted back to demon gods…  By God’s grace, churches must be planted and people taught and strengthened!!  Your prayers are so needed!!!
As you read thru this report made by a man , walking on sticks with a strong commitment in his heart, PLEASE stand beside him and the many others who are reaching out to touch lives for Christ!!
At the same time, find someone toreach out to yourself and show the love of Christ!

We sat on front porch that is painted nice and 35 people pack the
porch of this, the only church in this village of 300 families.  15
families now follow Christ with the first coming 12 years ago.  Prabu
Das pastors, but his sister was the first believer…
12 years ago, she was in hospital and Rehelamma, a lady pastor from
Ellareddygudem, met her in the hospital and led her to Christ.  I
remember so clearly Rehelamma…3 years ago we helped her build a nice
church and when we dedicated, it was packed with people and so
beautiful.  We set in the church and nice cloth covered back
wall…however, we found there was no back wall.  She did not have
enough money for wall.  But she responded, “No problem, the church is
already full so we will just extend 25 more feet, then put a wall on.”
I love that spirit!!  Her husband Moses, had passed away, but she had
a CAN DO spirit.  Then 2 years ago, Rehelamma went to be with the

But she led 1 woman to the Lord and now the church is with 35 faces
and tears flowing and arms raised in prayer to the Lord.  Even the
small 3 yr old children on the knees in sincere prayer!!  Today, 6
climbed down the ladder into the cistern, where Jeff baptized these
who committed hearts to Christ.

They want a church and have land a some stones.  We began to prepare
hearts to give… “None of us are thieves, they responded when
asked… But after reading Mal. 3:8-9 they said most were thieves.
Then began to give.  One woman gave her gold 8000rs, another a load of
sand, another use of her tractor… they gave 35,000rs, we matched it
and they had some money and a great church is being built!!  (In honor
of Bro. Guthrie at Stigler First AG).  81,500 rs given, even more than
needed in estimate–may get ceiling fan!!!
It is an incredible joy to stand beside these and strengthen their
hands and together build the first church in village and know these
are sincere pure hearted people who are here because one God fearing
woman led one sick lady to the Lord in hospital, 12 years ago.  Both
those ladies are now with the Lord, but the brother, Prabu Das pastors
here and reaching 3 more villages…

Lord help us have the zeal, drive and strong overcoming determination!!

Gave for good churches at Indlur Village from (Souls Harbour in Jay,
Ok), and Gorenkapalli from (Abundant Life Church).  and checked on
Kasurajapalli where the church is being built and looking
good…plaque is from Grandview Tabernacle in Muscogee–will dedicate
in October.  PTL!!

Gave talents to widows, and many heard Gospel that have not heard before!!

I am so thankful for privilege God gives to share and observe His love
to people never hearing before…

We sit outside under a light in Ishkababivigudem Village at 845pm,
swat bugs, dodge the bats and write because of blessing of a thumb
drive that connects to internet…

Thank you so much for praying!!

First day in the villages!!
We went to Ramnagar to see construction on church by Fairlland
Assembly of God.  Church is coming up well, and plaque looks nice, but
in Oct. when we shared and gave for church, a villager gave double the
land and so instead of a small church, this is coming up much
bigger–seat 150-200.  Pray they have enough to complete it.  A joy
was the woman, Elishamma that came to Christ and we were there when
she held hands with her husband and he also accepted Christ.
Both are in church and growing stronger!

Cherlagoraram Village- We sit in front of simple home of people who
break stones for 4 rs each and the whole village is stone breakers.
The first believer in the village is Inkula, now 60 and has 6
children.  They have all come to Christ and are now about 30 believers
of 1000 in village, but growing and good spirit!!
They spoke up quickly that 1 of 10 stones broken belong to God.  All
children have come and “Naga Raju”, “snake King, now called Daniel, 25
was the last to come 2 years ago.
It was blessing to hear and see a large family sitting on the mat in
front of the house sharing how God has changed their life since coming
to know Him.  The debts and misery are gone since they have learned to
tithe and give…  Daily, the whole family sits and reads the Word of
God together.  The younger ones whoa can read, read to all.
We look where they have been building a stone church the past 5 years,
but have no more money.  Publicly we stood and committed among
themselves, one by one to give 24,000Rupees, then we matched it and a
nice church will be complete.

The joy is this pastor, Paul, who came 9 years ago was only 20, but
has led them and 3 other villages to Christ.  These are the only
churches in the villages.
Paul, we helped with his first village church in RA Nagar in 2011.
Dr. Mast and I pulled up early AM in Feb 2011 and no one met us and
small concrete stone church.  Today, we visit and the church regularly
has 80 members that totally overflow the church and is growing so so

6 took baptism today.  One woman who was Laxmmama and is now “Saramma”
stepped in for baptism.  She is about 26 and the power of God hit her
and she shook and cried as she went under.  Then she shared how 1
month ago, she worshipped hannamun, the monkey.  She got a tumor and
had no hope, but a brilliant light filled the room she was in and a
man stood there that she came to know was Jesus.  She said “all I
could do was shout HALLALEUJAH and shake”.  Jesus healed her last
month and now she follows in baptism.
She stood with her 2 small 2 year old boys, tears streaming down her
face and thanking the Lord for all He is doing in her life!!  We named
her Sarramma.

Christ is revealing himself to many in this way.  Miracles are
happening and so many are coming to Christ!
Another man, Ramalu, 28, rode motorcycle, wanted baptism.  After he
took baptism, his name is now Phillip.  He shared this one year since
accepting Christ, everything he does is prospering, even as Phillip
kept being blessed and prospering everywhere he went…

We had an easier day today.  JUst 4 villages after the drive from
Hyderabad.!!  Our team of Jeff Oaks, Melody, “superwoman” Mauldin and
myself!!  We are blessed and so so thankful for your prayers!!

With so much thanks, prayers and joy to serve the Lord,

Kerry, Melody and Jeff
