Rev. Manchikala Shalem Raju, and Fellow Missionaries of Shalem Gospel Ministries in Balajiraopet, Tenali – India held their annual Christmas Celebration yesterday. All of the communities that they are serving were invited which turned out a record gathering!
During this celebration, the people got to hear the Nativity Story according to Luke, welcome St. Nicholas who came to help them celebrate the birth of the Lord Jesus Christ, by sharing sweet treats with the children, singing and dancing, and then bring everyone together to feast.
The ministry also presented gifts of clothing, shoes, and blankets to those in need, along with Bibles, and tracks in the area’s predominant languages.
A great “God Bless You” goes out to the faithful of The United New Testament Church, International – whose giving became a means of grace for this wonderful ministry where so many were able to Hear the Word and Fellowship in the Holy Spirit.
