Dearly beloved Pastors, Churches, and praying friends:
Greetings from us and all our mission work from Hyderabad, India. It is always the drastic difference in culture and the conditions here that force us to change our schedules frequently. And the beginning of Summer has its effect on the body with sharply rising temperatures. I reached here on the February 18th and plunged into the things that awaited my return.
*The translation work of the Telugu Bible having been completed, but the intense compiling of the entire document needs my presence to oversee every detail.
*The prospect of the new children's home under our east coast mission church required my travels there right away. We had healthy discussions and plans for five children who needs care and a place immediately, but we have to get the preliminary things taken care of which takes time and prayers. I will keep you posted as we get closer to get it running and working with the local church and Baptist Charities.
*The school (Aleph Academy) requires me to go through a week of ACE training camp in April for me to be the Administrator even though I will be adjunct at the moment due to my priority over the printing of the Telugu Bible.
*Meanwhile, my sister Mary's husband passed away suddenly due to cardiac arrest. She and the whole family needs all your prayers for comfort at this time of a huge loss. She is such an asset in the mission work in numerous ministries.
We want to thank you for all your love, prayers and support, and assure you of our prayers for you daily. May the Lord grant you your due rewards when He returns in His glorious kingdom for which we all watch and pray.
Serving the Savior
Bro. Rufus Saripalli and family
