Church Building in
Muppalapadu Village, Andhra Pradesh, India.
Bible Baptist Church is trying to help build a church building project in Muppalapadu Village, Andhra Pradesh, India. The local pastor in the village is Pastor G Bhaskar Rao. He is a friend of our church and is a faithful servant of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Our Assistant Pastor, John Nelson has had the privilege of ministering side-by-side with Pastor Bhaskar and testifies to his selflessness and commitment in serving the Lord.
Muppalapadu Village, where Pastor Rao is from does not have a church and is in desperate need for one as the number of Christians in the region are growing. Pastor Rao has a burden to build this church and has already started work on the building by investing his personal savings into the project. You can see pictures of the work that has already been started. We hope that you would prayerfully consider giving to this project after reading Pastor Rao's testimony, seeing the pictures, and the projected cost of the project.
Pastor Rao’s Testimony
Greetings in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Savior
My name is Pastor G Bhaskar Rao. I was born at Muppalapadu Village in Andhra Pradesh, India. I belonged to a nominal Christian family in a remote area. There was no church in my village and surroundings region for me to grow spiritually.
After my education I started my own business, but could not grow my business. I did not have peace in what I was doing and at that time I heard the gospel from Pastor Devadanam through his ministry. I accepted Christ as my Personal Savior and surrendered myself to serve the Lord. I followed God’s calling and came to the City of Bangalore to get trained in Berean Baptist Bible college and Seminary. In 1998, I graduated from my program in Theology by His grace. After my graduation, I started a church in one of the slums in Bangalore. In 2001 I married my wife Salomi and was blessed with my son Abhishek and my daughter Preethi Sharon.
God’s Miracles in my Life
In the year 2013, when I was preaching in youth meeting I had a heart attack. I was critical and it was through prayers God made me well and I was able to continue my ministering. In 2015 again, I had a very bad ischemic stroke to left side of my brain and my condition was very critical and I was battling for life. Again, the Almighty Lord did a miracle in my critical stage and healed me. The doctor could not believe that I have made it out of such a critical condition.
When I was in my bedridden state the Lord placed a burden in my heart to build a church in Muppalapadu Village, my home town. There is no church in that region even to this day.
