God bless you and thank you all!
We sat on front porch that is painted nice and 35 people pack the
porch of this, the only church in this village of 300 families. 15
families now follow Christ with the first coming 12 years ago. Prabu
Das pastors, but his sister was the first believer…
12 years ago, she was in hospital and Rehelamma, a lady pastor from
Ellareddygudem, met her in the hospital and led her to Christ. I
remember so clearly Rehelamma…3 years ago we helped her build a nice
church and when we dedicated, it was packed with people and so
beautiful. We set in the church and nice cloth covered back
wall…however, we found there was no back wall. She did not have
enough money for wall. But she responded, “No problem, the church is
already full so we will just extend 25 more feet, then put a wall on.”
I love that spirit!! Her husband Moses, had passed away, but she had
a CAN DO spirit. Then 2 years ago, Rehelamma went to be with the
But she led 1 woman to the Lord and now the church is with 35 faces
and tears flowing and arms raised in prayer to the Lord. Even the
small 3 yr old children on the knees in sincere prayer!! Today, 6
climbed down the ladder into the cistern, where Jeff baptized these
who committed hearts to Christ.
They want a church and have land a some stones. We began to prepare
hearts to give… “None of us are thieves, they responded when
asked… But after reading Mal. 3:8-9 they said most were thieves.
Then began to give. One woman gave her gold 8000rs, another a load of
sand, another use of her tractor… they gave 35,000rs, we matched it
and they had some money and a great church is being built!! (In honor
of Bro. Guthrie at Stigler First AG). 81,500 rs given, even more than
needed in estimate–may get ceiling fan!!!
It is an incredible joy to stand beside these and strengthen their
hands and together build the first church in village and know these
are sincere pure hearted people who are here because one God fearing
woman led one sick lady to the Lord in hospital, 12 years ago. Both
those ladies are now with the Lord, but the brother, Prabu Das pastors
here and reaching 3 more villages…
Lord help us have the zeal, drive and strong overcoming determination!!
Gave for good churches at Indlur Village from (Souls Harbour in Jay,
Ok), and Gorenkapalli from (Abundant Life Church). and checked on
Kasurajapalli where the church is being built and looking
good…plaque is from Grandview Tabernacle in Muscogee–will dedicate
in October. PTL!!
Gave talents to widows, and many heard Gospel that have not heard before!!
I am so thankful for privilege God gives to share and observe His love
to people never hearing before…
We sit outside under a light in Ishkababivigudem Village at 845pm,
swat bugs, dodge the bats and write because of blessing of a thumb
drive that connects to internet…
Thank you so much for praying!!
Kerry, Melody and Jeff
This image reveals “rootless cones,” which form on lava flows that interact with subsurface water. They are in depressions because subsequent lava flowed around the base of the cones, then “inflated.” Lava inflation is a process where liquid is injected beneath the solid (thickening) crust and raises the whole surface, often raising it higher than the topography that controlled the initial lava emplacement.
This scene is in Amazonis Planitia, a vast region covered by flood lava. The surface is coated by a thin layer of reddish dust, which avalanches down steep slopes to make dark streaks.

Part 2: Darwin’s Domino Effect
Scientific Darwinism maintains that, without master design, a single cell is responsible for all of life—this, through a process of random changes over some 4.5 billion years. My intent is not so much to challenge this theory, but rather to dispute its claim to exclusive, uncontestable king-of- the-mountain status.
You know, as do I, that to question evolution “as fact, not theory” is to wallop the wasp’s nest. At increased risk to potentially lethal stings are the purported weak predestined to obsolescence. Presumed-to-be highly evolved elitists within the ranks of academics (both in the scientific community and atop the totem pole of higher learning) afford no room whatsoever for challenge. After all, favored races in the struggle for life naturally know what’s best. For them (and them alone), experiential open-mindedness is unnecessary.
No Can Do Heads AND Tails
Academic elitists champion what David Horowitz calls institutional leftism (political correctness). Laden with laughable absurdities and ludicrous inconsistencies, politically correct thought serves as umbrella under which many postmodern “-isms” huddle. United causes include civil/ gender/ sexual orientation rights and radical environmentalism.
Problem is, Darwinism and institutional leftism are mutually exclusive. In Darwinian thought, for example, homosexuals fall short of the fittest, favored class because they don’t procreate to ensure survival of “their kind.” Repeat that out loud, and you’re certain to be branded a homophobe. Darwin’s belief system is by no means politically correct.
Ayn Rand accurately identified the racist as a person who, based upon racial origin, ascribes collective qualities to others—precisely what evolutionary-minded Margaret Sanger did upon founding Planned Parenthood. Sanger referred to blacks, immigrants, and indigents as “human weeds” and “reckless breeders”; and she went so far as to advocate extermination of the “feebleminded.” Today, Sanger’s lauded as a veritable goddess of sustainability. Parrot her and see where that gets you!
