Kummarivani Illu Ministries
For over twenty years Casa Do Oleiro has had the opportunity to minister to the beautiful people of India. We are amazed and humbled as God continues to use this ministry to reach people with the love of Jesus and the good news of His salvation. We invite you to see the projects He has allowed us to partner with through Real India Kummarivani Illu Ministries.
Casa do Oleiro partners with a ministry in India called REAL India, which stands for Rural Evangelism and Adult Literacy India. REAL INDIA is a Non-Profit Christian organization established in 1997 by pastor Jayakumar Garnipudi. It operates inter-denominationally, working together with other Christian organizations who share a heart for the people of India. Pastor Garnnipudi's vision is to go into mostly rural areas and preach God’s Word teaching adults and children alike to read and write.
Having the simple skills of reading and writing help them find work and provide for their families. By ministering to their physical needs and showing them love we are also able to share the Gospel of Jesus with them. Now these individuals can share their love for God with others in their community.
Kadilibai Tanda Church
This year we began building a church located in Kadilibai Tanda, which is about 50 Miles away from Hyderabad city. The church is located in Banjara, a tribal village, with nearly 800 people but very few believers. It began with one God fearing man named Kishan who had a heart to build this church in hopes of reaching his community. This is a very courageous step because his father is a Hindu Pandit (priest) and the village head. This means constant strife between Kishan and his family.
This small church reaches out to the children of the village and now has over 70 children attending every Sunday. The children say the best part is the worship service and hearing of the love of God. The village struggles with having clean water and often suffers with sickness as a result.
We are asking that you please pray for the workers, the children, and especially Kishan. Pray that God will continue to give them strength, courage, safety, and provision to complete the church. This is such an important project as it is reaching the next generation for Christ.
Dorcas Sewing Center
The Dorcas Sewing Center in Puduru Village, Kurnool District serves the community by providing free classes to teach those in the surrounding area the skill of sewing. Here the women are able to not only learn a valuable skill allowing them to provide clothing and household goods for themselves, but they also sell these goods to bring in an income.
May this center bring honor to Jesus for many, many years to come.
Children's Bible Camp
Our annual children's bible camp is an amazing time of fellowship and fun. During this camp many local children hear the gospel message and have the opportunity to meet Jesus and learn of His great love for them, often for the first time.
During the camp the kids are fed, read bible stories, and play games. The staff also gets a chance to meet many of the children's families and invite them to attend a church service.
Through our medical clinic in Hyderabad many received medical treatment for various ailments, had exams, and received medical attention they may not have otherwise received.
It was a wonderful time to reach people with the love of Jesus through medical care, food, and fellowship. Our hope is that we can continue to tangibly minister to those who need to know that God loves them.
REAL INDIA CHURCH
In December 2015 we finished with the construction of our new church/school located in the region of Hyderabad, Telangana State, INDIA. This project is part of a community outreach in an area that is severely impoverished with many faithful believers, and many who are open to the gospel message.
Our goal is for this building to serve as a school for the children of this community as well as a church. Pictured to the left is a prayer circle thanking God for the completed foundation of the new church.
We pray that God will bless this church and guard the pastors and those who serve there. May many people come to know the immeasurable love of Jesus through this fellowship. Thank you to all who helped bring this project to completion.
