Pastor Praveen's Testimony

        Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Reddimalla Praveen Ratna Kumar. I was born on 15th May, 1973, in Bellampalli, Mancherial, District of telangana, in South India. I was born to Mrs Lee Alexander and Mr.E.Alexander, who worked in Singareni Colleries Company as Mining officer. My grandfather Rev.Reddimalla Gyana Ratnam, served God in C.S.I, Dornakal diocese


        Though I was brought up in a Christian family, I didn't know anything about Lord Jesus Christ. I thought that I could enter into heaven as I had a Christian background. So with that pride, I never went to sunday school or church. After completion of my Degree in Wesley College, Hyderabad, I returned back to my native place Belampally. As my father was in an officer's position at his work I had access to money, friends and free facilities and so used to spend all my time with friends in clubs, parks and play grounds. Even when I did not know God, He protected me and prevented from getting into any bad habits other than spending time with friends and involving in unnecessary matters. Bellamapally was famous as Naxalite controlled area and because of our misbehavior in the society, they warned us. But we didn't listen to them. One day they attacked us. So I left my native place and ran away to Hyderabad to save my life. I had no food or shelter. I lived on the streets, slept in bus stands and parks. My daily food was two bananas and water. I was abandoned by every one and no one consoled me or encouraged me. I attempted suicide three times but did not succeed


        Accidentally one day I came across Vishwavani meetings in S.P.G grounds, Secunderabad (the main speaker was Bro. BVD Joshi and Vijay Kumar, Kakinada). I knew that dinner would be served after the meeting, so I went there just to have dinner. At that time I had not eaten any food for the last three days. I was sitting at one corner of the ground without any interest towards the message and was waiting to have dinner after the meeting. But through that message, The Holy Spirit God opened my eyes and showed me all my faults. I immediately confessed my sins and realized that I was a sinner and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior. On 23rd Jan 1993, at 9:15 p.m., I told God that "God if you lift me up from this pit, I will serve you and I will die for you" Just two days after that, I got a job as a store in charge in Deccan Continental, a Five star hotel in Hyderabad. I got a good fellowship in Kukatpally. My spiritual Mother, Rev.Ratna Manikyam of Lords Grace Church, used to encourage me a lot. I was working as an Evangelist along with my job. I got married in the year 1995 with Ramadevi, who was saved from a Hindu family and is a good believer. She is working as a staff nurse in Indian Railways, Bellampally. After my marriage along with the ministry, I started a travel business with an auto and a Jeep. I went through major financial crisis of a loss of 4.5 lakhs in the business. We both went through a major depression and disposed off the vehicles. God taught me many lessons in whatever I did and wherever I went. I surrendered myself totally and came to full time ministry on 9th Dec, 1999 Dec.


        God blessed us with a beautiful church by our aunty Srilatha Sundaram. The Church started with three people in the first meeting. God touched many people through our ministry. Many people were delivered from demonic spirits, sickness, troubles, financial crisis, family problems etc. God blessed us gradually and now we have moved to a new church building in the same premises which can now accommodate 1000 people. We also have a Bible school, a 24 hour Prayer Tower and a T.V. ministry. My desire is to conduct Revival meetings in every District in Andhra Pradesh. Till now we have reached Eight districts on a regular monthly program. My Vision is to start a home for the aged and an orphanage. My desire is to reach our Nation and lift the Banner of Jesus Christ.


        God blessed me with two children Abishek, Akshaya and with a spiritual son Stephen who shoulders and shares the burden and responsibility of this ministry.

        So, pray for us and our Ministry. May God richly bless you all.

" The LORD is my light and my salvation "        psalms 27:1

Sis. Sharon's Testimony

        Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I am Reddimalla Sharon Praveen Kumar. I was born in Badrachalam, Khammam District of Telangana, in South India in a Hindu background family. My Father's name is Vishwanadam and my mother's name is Lakshmi. My name was Ramadevi. My father used to work in the nearby temple, explaining the people about the Panchanga's and telling them about their stars. We used to do a lot of puja's and the girls were not allowed to go outside the house. It was a highly orthodox Hindu family. I was also very religious doing lot of Puja's and visiting many temples.


        When I was studying seventh class, I had a dream in which a person came to me and gave me a New Testament. As soon as I woke up, I told my mother about the dream. She told me that we should not take the name of Jesus as we were Hindu's and of a higher caste. She told me that Jesus was a Lower caste God. She even warned me not to discuss about this dream with anybody. I finished my education and went for nursing training. During the Initial days of my Training I was very happy doing Lot of Puja's and visiting many temples. However, when I came to the final year of my nursing training, I was disturbed without any peace in my heart due to the financial problems back at home.


        After the completion of my nursing training, I went to Hyderabad to start my Profession. At that time one brother started telling me about Jesus. I thought I came to Hyderabad to settle down in my life, why do I need this Jesus. I stopped talking to that person for some time so that I can be far from this Jesus, But Jesus did not leave me as I was in his plan. This brother started taking me to small meeting and slowly even I started reading the bible and praying to this Jesus. I was praying without leaving my Hindu traditions for a long time. After some days I got sick, my nose was blocked due to a puss formation. I was using lot of antibiotics but I was not getting the healing. One of my friends took me to a Christian meeting stating I would be healed. In that meeting, I heard a voice. The voice said "My dear daughter will you love me and worship me". I told the voice that I already love Jesus. The voice said "If you love me come out of those traditions". I told the voice that I would leave them, which I did instantly. From that day onwards I started growing in the Lord.


        A sister by the name of Rev.Ratna Manikyam , was running a church in Kukatpalli, I started going to that church and she was my spiritual mother. I grew more in the Lord by loving the Lord and worshipping him more. My spiritual mother gave me in marriage to one of their church believer, who was also led to god by her. My father-in-law's place was Bellampalli, Adilabad,District of Andhra Pradesh. Even if I was from a Hindu background family they loved me and that is how my family life started. After seven years of my marriage life, God has blessed me with two kids, Abishek & Akshaya.


        God has blessed me in my Job and was promoted as a Nursing Superintendent in the Indian Railway's. I received many awards in my Job and my authorities are kind to me due to God's grace. After some days of my marriage days God has led us to start our Calvary Ministry in Bellampalli where God asked us to start. During the initial days of our ministry, we faced a lot of problems financially. However God has never left us. He had been with us, using us for the expansion of his kingdom.

        So, pray for us and our Ministry. May God richly bless you all.
