Most of these churches are located in villages and are administered by 150 ministers who live in Rajahmundry and the surrounding area. The goal for each minister is to establish at least one new church a year.

LITTLE LAMBS INTERNATIONAL ORPHANAGE:

Their first orphanage, housing 102 children, was established in Rajahmundry in 2006. As requested gy the Indian Government, all of the children were orphaned as a result of AIDS.

HIV/AIDS MINISTRY:
The Mission and Welfare Society – India embarked on an HIV/AIDS program in 2004 to disseminate information on this disease. A booklet, titled Follow Jesus, Prevent AIDS (subtitled: The biblical basis for sexual abstinence to avoid AIDS) was prepared for distribution. The HIV/AIDS story is given to the people through seminars in churches, schools, colleges, local gatherings, etc. In addition, the booklet is distributed on streets and in homes. About 3.6 million copies have been distributed, and it is estimated that the message has been read or heard by up to 40 million people.
