UNITED CHRISTIAN FAITH GROUP OF MINISTRIES
It is about 1920s India under the British colonial rule, there two kinds of people came from UK, one is for business another one for saving the souls as missionary.Inthose days, there are the missionaries came to Godavari Delta after the construction of bridge over Godavari at Dowleswaram, it makes the people to get civilization and hand to mouth, That time one of the Missionary Brown came to Ambajipet stayed over there in the mission centre, Every day he and his wife visiting the weekly market in konaseema that time my great grandfather Navuduri Pullayya, who is a village doctor visiting weekly markets in the surrounding village,,thoug he originally come from Cobbler community which is a heinous job in the India Hindu society. Because this community people make shoes for all communities, they do cremation services for high caste Hindu people and bring the cloths of dead people. This way the cobbler Dalit people lives under the mercy of high caste Hindu people in all manners
One day Mr. Brown and his wife visited the weekly market that time my great grandfather selling his medical products and taking care of patients, nearby by place Mr Brown preaching the gospel to all by standing on a wooden chair in order to focus them toward him and his voice. My great grandfather hearing the gospel he believed, his hard heart changed and invited Mr. Brown to his house, he is the head of the community in those days so the whole community people came and hear the gospel, that is the First gospel service and Sunday service around the radius of 25kms in this area, praise the Lord
As Brown is coming often and other Indian gospel ministers are visiting pullayya family
One day there are about 10 people Baptized along with Pullayya, that day Mr. Brown gave Glaxco Dhoti to new clothes to the Baptized ones., As they wore the new clothes, the high caste Hindu community people get furious about these untouchable people because they used to work for them day and night as slaves and scavenger work, now these new born Christians practicing health and hygiene, taking bath regularly, wearing full new clothes first time in their life, previously they were all half naked means cover their secret part only
Now they were saved physically and spiritually, by observing their new life the Hindu community leaders not able to digest the truth and new life style so that Hindu elders attacked on these new Christians when they are going to meet in a house where they would get together as church( called out or redeemed ones), on the way these Hindu leaders strip off the clothes of my grandfather, they make naked him totally, that time a women threw a piece of cloth over him so he hide himself with hat cloth, that Sunday they all get together and just prayed no preaching, the very next week Mr. Brown came and hear the total grievances of the believers, so that Brown took courage and again lead all the believers in the high caste Hindu people street and lead them to a canal for Baptism of one believer, so none of the Hindu came forward to attack because the land being ruled by Britishers.
That time some of our community people and my great grandfather declared that we are not untouchables_ Madiga-cobblers) we are touched by Almighty God- born again christens, since then we lose all kinds of privileges which were reserved for untouchables, so that we become a equal to high caste people, we are socially and economically minority people but more power ful by the leading and guidance of the holy spirit from time to time. We are not dominated like Hindus but we are precious , chosen generation and priestly hood for the glory of God
As the church is going on increasing the membership of the believers that the brown asked the believers to come forward to take hold of the priestly hood as minister of God, none of them come forward, that time my father is a new born child about months so they dedicated him for the service of the Lord by holding him with their hands, after many year finis of my father education, so he was miraculously called by Lord in a one gospel meeting, then he did not turn back and go further in the ministry by preparing for the greater call in the ZION BIBLE COLLEGE Vijayawada, after finishing his studies and graduation, he was lead by the Lord to work for the toughest place where is the strong hold of communist GANNAVARAM, started ministry, there we are 6 of his children born, my mother from Krishna district, so she supports him faithfully in the ministry in all up and downs.
I and my brother Raju were twins and first born, so that my mother is physically weak unable to feed to of us, so that my grandmother took my brother Raju to Katrenikona where my father’s brothers stays and works, so here was under their care, as the days passes my parents decided that we should not separated the twins let them live one place, so they brought me to katrenikona, I and my brother we bother get education at Z.P.H.SCHOOL till 10th, then we moved to Vijayawada where my father is pasturing, we live with parents and sister, the devil attacks suddenly on my family unity as the form of death on my brother Raju, that year a year of experience of bitterness 1979
Since then we are fine and doing well, in 1996 November the cyclone and floods devastated the total area of East Godavari district of konaseema, that time my first boy John Thomas born, the same month I travelled to katrenikona with some amount of money to help the first generation Christian in my place, I have distributed some basic food stuff rice dual salt oil and etc
After few months I have helped the people to rebuild the houses new clothes, fish nets, income generating projects. All the projects were successful and faithfully done. 4 churches were established
Praise the Lord, I left that place I visit after yearly once occasionally
Very recently I supposed to teach my children who we are where we are how we live in this area and who is our siblings, earlier my children studying in a Hindu schools , it impacts a lot in their spiritual and physical life so that I searched for a Christian school, later I found ParamJyothy Public School in Amalapuram, I have made joined them in 2012. They were good physically spiritually and educationally glory to God
As a result of my children studies I have been visiting Amalapuram monthly twice, so I have visited some of my friends, pastors churches and own community people and relatives, some of them were really under the rule of Satan and clutches of poverty, it is my desire where there is need I have to rush there and do faith in action , lot of children wondering on the streets, catching the fishes in small brooks and canals and tributes even on the bay, so it is my strong desire that the children are the tomorrow leaders of the nation and the church , It is my prime aim to educate them with excellence, bring them unity for growth and touch the lives with charity, so that the Lord guided me after much prayer and consultation of my friends and Elders lead me to start the charity in the name of UNITED CHRISTIAN FAITH GROUP OF MINISTRIES, it is a non denominational and non racial charity for all human beings do to good love thy neighbor as thy self, in this great work please join your hand , open your heart and walk your feet towards needy.
