The church of Christ in Subbaiahpalem:
This congregation was started by Esudas in 2004 with 16 souls.
It is a remote village with a population of about 3000. All of
these members are converted from the new Apostolic
denomination. They have since grown to have 25 in
regular attendance. All of them are members of Lord's
Church. None of them can read or write so they are wholly
dependant on Esudas and his family to bring them the word of
The members work in the fishing industry
and also catch rats in the agricultural fields of the higher
caste citizens. The rats spoil the rice and other
fields. They are payed by the land lords for each rat
They have a complete building
for the worship assembly. After the congregation converted
from denominationalism, the old group came and took the roof off
the building. They later offered to return the roof if
they would convert back to the new Apostolic denomination.
The members of the church of Christ in Subbaiahpalem refused and
enough money was raised by Christians from the United States to
replace the roof.
Sister Lakshmi was from this
village and due to the lack of proper treatment she recently
died. If proper medical treatment could have been provided
she would have survived a few more years. She was a good
young mother of 3 children and a faithful Christian wife.
It is difficult for the poor.
Money is in short supply for medicines and treatment. They
are in constant need of our prayers
Worship is every Sunday Morning at 9:00 AM.
Bible class is on Friday evenings at 7:00.
The faithful saints in the church of Christ
in Subbaiahpalem greet you warmly.
