Wesley Chatla is a pastor with the Indian Christian Bethel Baptist Gospel Fellowship in Andhra Pradesh, India, and now planting a new church. He and his wife, Sonia, send the following ministry update.

Please pray, as we are praying and planning to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through our Neighborhood Community Christmas Celebration in Nimmakuru Dec. 12 and Machilipatnam Dec. 19. The people in these areas are below the poverty line and live on daily wages. Our church started the groundwork already and is so excited for this great event, even in the midst of persecution, to share the love of Christ through this season.

We are praying for the following funds so we can reach 100 people in each location:

Love feast: $300
Bibles: $500
Gifts (blankets, school bags for kids, etc.): $700
Combined cost for both centers: $3,000

I appreciate your prayers.
