"In the six years that I have known Caleb Rayapati and the Harvest Ministries team, I continue to be amazed as the hand of God works in and through this humble ministry. India is a dark land where the light of the Gospel of Christ is desperately needed in the face of caste prejudice, superstition, false gods, oppression and unimaginable evils. Human life holds little value and a concern for their fellow man is a foreign concept. Into this backdrop enters Harvest Ministries who is taking the Gospel to the rural villages of the Telengana district of Andhra Pradesh in many cases for the first time ever. The message of Hope burns brightly for a people who are mostly dalits and considered sub-human. I have had the privilege to look into the faces of dozens of these hopeful who have been reached by the gospel and found life in Christ. Harvest has entered their villages and dug wells to provide fresh water, they have held dental clinics providing free relief to people whom otherwise must suffer, unable to pay for the treatment they need. Medical clinics provide for untreated health needs and permanent HIV/AIDS clinics minister regular monthly treatment to dozens of sufferers. This holistic approach to ministry brings practical love to a hurting people along with the truth of God’s love and the message of eternal life. The 125 churches throughout the region offer worship opportunities for believers as the 25 pastors minister through the ministry of the Word of God. Additionally there is a wonderful school providing a Christian, English speaking education to what will be 300 residential kids ( all from Christian churches) along with dozens of local ‘day students’ who are largely Hindu but whom are being exposed to the gospel through their fellow students.
I have been privileged in so many ways to participate actively with this ministry. Please allow me to encourage you to consider serving Christ alongside Harvest Ministries with your gifts and support. What can you do? You can provide for a well ($750), support a local pastor ($150 a month), sponsor a child in the school ($50 a month), build a church building ($10K) (less than 20 of the 125 churches have their own building) or simply give. I assure you every dime will be well spent. There has been nothing in my life that has been more rewarding than serving alongside Caleb and Harvest Ministries. May God be glorified as His people rise to the challenge to meet the needs of a desperate and dying world by bringing the message of Jesus."
