cha-map-inlineWesley Chatla is a church planter with Indian Christian Bethel Baptist Gospel Fellowship. He is starting a church in Andhra Pradesh, India, and requests funding for its promotional service and to help meet ongoing needs. He sends the following letter.

Due to the change in the government and the incidents that are happening these days, it is necessary to let all the Christian leaders and the local pastors know about our new church plant, as the persecution is growing against Christians. We are planning to introduce Bethel Baptist Church in Machilipatnam Dec. 20. I am in the process of booking a community hall and publicizing this event. We are planning to give a Christmas feast for all the participants.

I have estimated the total cost nearly around $1,000 U.S. for this promotional event. Apart from this, we need another $3,000 to purchase the furniture, sound system, pads, and needed church items, and to do some painting work and fixing mats for the building and rent for first four months. Your generous donations are greatly appreciated. We are still praying to buy the available property for this church plant.

Please send donations to cha-propertyIGM, 990 Calkins Road, Rochester, NY 14623, or donate online at Please mention the funds as “Chatlas’ Church Start-up Funds–Project.”
