Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Wells of Salvation

By Pastor Kerry Mauldin
Awesome fruitful day in many villages!!
Went to Tripurarum to dedicate the well given in honor of Rose and Harold Hull’s 50th anniversary.  They have walked nations with us in the past and Harold has gone to be with the Lord.  The well is right in front of the church we built in 2010.  It has grown from 15 to 70 adults and growing and learning!!
we went to hindu homes around the church.  These homes have been greatly blessed by the well.  Mannamma and Siadalu live right by the well and she had been making 15, 20 minute trips daily to carry water.  Now she had 20′ to carry and their hearts were wide open to hear the Gospel.  Both accepted Christ and agree to come first time to church and pull the gods…
The 2nd well dedication was at Hamu Thanda, Banjara (gypsy) village in memory of my Grandma and Grandpa CF and Ollie Mauldin who pastored many years till Grandpa died in 1962.  What a joy to have the heritage they passed down…
These tribals are so humble and giving.  Live in simple houses, but the church given by Verdigris AG is now beautiful!!  Painted and marble floor in simple village.  We visit hindu homes and 15 adults set as we share bracelets of salvation.  They began to talk strong, asking questions and not wanting to pray like a parrot and repeat some words.  Much explaining and English to Telegu to Banjara translations finally won them over.
Pastor and his wife gave their best hospitality and so want us to promise to come back.  700 families and 10 are Christian so far and rest all worship idols…
Now the people will all be coming to the church for water and hearts will open to breaking the curse of sin, sickness and poverty thru the blood of Jesus.
Went to Dokallabavi Thanda–“Stomach well” village- Pastor was not at the small unfinished church so we went to crossroads shops and set to have chili’s and chai.  We gave bracelets and quickly 50 people were standing around us in circle as we did “street meeting”.  They listen quiet and some want to follow Christ.  One young man, a bus driver, was first to speak up.  If a pastor was in this village, we would follow.  This man never preaches, he gets a pension and is only in his house.  We promised follow-up…
Later encouraged, but spoke straight to the pastor, rebuking in a building up way…
So many tools are available to reach a world for Christ!
Thank you all for strengthening our hands…
Dedicate Venganagudem church–nice church that Oolagah AG gave to build!!
Dedicate Haliya Colony Church, built in memory of pastor Notchie Twist in Shulter, OK.  Churchhas grown to 50 adults from 30 just this year since church is built.  We set among the plastic thatch tents many live in and share Christ and enjoy the limes they gave from over our heads…
Fruit is so good!!  6 more villages today!!  Long good days!!
With so much thanks,
Jim, Joshua, Melody and Kerry
