Wesley Chatla is a church planter with Indian Christian Bethel Baptist Gospel Fellowship. He is starting Bethel Baptist Church in Andhra Pradesh, India, and previously requested funding for startup costs. He now sends the following letter.

We personally thank each and every individual for your sincere prayers for the church plant project. After months of prayers, God enabled us to start off the church in a rented facility, and the last attendance was 18 members, including my family. We are trying to find a hall, but no one is coming forward to rent the facility for church purpose. God is good.

We have five kids in the church, and Sonia is teaching them ever since then and they are so encouraged. Please pray that they will grow in the Lord and it will be a great encouragement to the parents as well.

Please pray for Rajesh (22) and his sister Soujanya (19), who are a great help to us in setting up and tearing down along with my family. Rajesh and Sounjanya lost both parents when they were very young and are raised by their aunt. Rajesh is working in a pharmacy, and they are looking for marriage alliances for Soujanya right now. Please pray for them and their future.

Please pray for Mr. Vinay, who is not saved but started coming to church. His wife, Mrs. Sirisha Vinay, is saved and attending church regularly and she is asking prayers for the salvation of her husband.

I am thankful for my wife, Sonia, and our sons, Joshua and Joseph, for their sincere help and support in the ministry. It is very exciting to see one or two new people every Sunday.
