Project number: 81401
We support churches in their church work, their Bible studies, and their church start ups. This way men, women, and children have access to the Christian faith. The good news has changed a lot of people already. They have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord. They have found joy, confirmation, comfort, and help in him. Especially in times of need and worry these churches are helping them by offering Bible studies or church services so they can bring their concerns to God, they can worship Jesus, and they can pray for other people.
Our Baptist partner CREAM in Tallarevu has several social projects and a church convention that more than 60 churches are part of. CREAM supports the missionary work of these local churches with seven staff members that are coordinating the work of the churches. 8 local churches and evangelists paid by CREAM are teaching the good news as well as being responsible for the congregational life. 20 Bible women are doing house calls, they spread Bibles and tracts, and they engage in shaping the services and the prayer meetings. CREAM also organizes regular trainings on the campus in Tallarevu.
The director of CREAM is Rev. Vasantharao. He’s been the pastor of the local church in Tallarevu since 1974. They started with 40 members and have grown to more than 800 members as of today. Rev. Vasantharao and his son Samuel Sagar are very actively traveling all the churches. Through them many new churches have been planted.
