According to this word, we are not only doing this honorable ministry but our main vision is to make disciples Matthew 18:14 – “Even so it is not the will of you Father which is in heaven, that one of these little ones should perish”.
In the year 1999, the Lord graciously enabled us to start an organization, registered and recognized under Government of Tamilnadu, India by the name “Blessing Refuge Ministries” in the heart of the city in the District of Thiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu, South India.
Cheyyar Taluk in Thiruvannamalai District, Tamilnadu, South India and is about ….. sq km in area. There are 225 Villages in Cheyyar Taluk. Its major population is illiterate, farmers, gypsies who do not even aware of what is happening around them. Their major occupation is weaving, agriculture, tribal people who are most backward to the civilized cities. These villagers have never ever had heard about the existence of the living God, Jesus. For more than 15 years, we have been doing the Lord’s ministry in over 50 villages in Cheyyar Taluk.
Our main vision is to share the gospel to all the villages surrounded. The Lord graciously enabled us to plant 8 branch churches in and around Cheyyar Taluk. Among those villagers, the Lord anointed 8 Pastors and 2 Assistant Pastor to pastor the flocks to His kingdom.
Apart from gospel ministries, we are conducting free tuition centers for the young children who long to go to school but unable to afford it. Moreover, the disserted, abandoned widows, aged ones, blind, disabled, the sick like lepers, infected with incurable diseases, and rejected communities by the so called society were comforted, consoled, fed with good clothes and food.
For the past 10 years, the Blessing Refuge Church was conducted in a rented thatched house near Cheyyar village bus stop. During October 2011, unexpectedly due to heavy rain, the thatched church was blown up. So we had to shift our main church to the Branch Church at Sirunkattur. This area was 10 km interior from our main church, so in order to unite the believers at one place and then drop them after the Sunday service, we had to book a tempo every Sunday to pick up and drop the crowd who were unable to afford their travel expenses. We have around 130 communicant members from around 50 nearby villages.
