Elisha Jonnalagadda

Elisha Jonnalagadda is a pastor in Martur, Prakasam District, Andhra Pradesh, India.  Martur is near the major city of Chilakaluripet.  Elisha is a pastor and bishop who has overseen a network of 60 pastors for the past five years and has also been ministering to the needs of orphans.  Elisha has also been involved in publishing christian literature for several years.  God led Elisha and Godpoems poet Steve Pursell to meet and become friends in His ministry. In 2014 God led Elisha to offer to help Steve publish the Godpoems and get them out to the beautiful people of India first and eventually beyond.  Then Elisha and Steve joined together to also work to build orphanages for needy children in impoverished places all over the world, beginning in India, with first home under Elisha's supervision.  This ministry is called Lion of Judah Homes for Children. Elisha's wife, Suneetha is a gospel singer and with Elisha's help, is at work to compose music to some of the poems and eventually record them as songs to the Lord.  The funds raised by the Godpoems poetry books and songs are divided evenly between Elisha and Steve.  They go toward the care for the children, the building of the Lion of Judah Homes and basic living needs.  Elisha is publishing the poems first in English but is translating them and working towards publishing them in other Indian languages too: including Telugu/Sanskrit and Hindi, so far.  Elisha and Suneetha also run a magazine called "Witness for Christ" which is reaching thousands of souls. Your prayers and any practical or financial support God leads you to lend for these project would be much appreciated.  Lion Homes directors' board also includes Elisha and Steve.  Your prayers for Elisha, Suneetha, their two babies, and the orphans they care for are very much appreciated, thank you.  Please enjoy Steve's tribute to his friend and partner, Elisha, the poem, Brother Moment.
