  • Letter From Rhonda

Hello everyone

Bless you all. I hope things are going well for you. This is a note to to let you know that Gina’s family has kindly directed the estate funds that were in the original Highway Ministry account back to us. I have started forwarding those funds to India along with the regular monthly payments that you give. Ezra is helping the poor in his community and also distributing funds at monthly meeting he holds with pastors who are reaching out to help people in their villages. Ezra covers a wide and also remote area so he is going to purchase a second hand people mover vehicle. He is also going to construct a compound wall around Railpet church as it is a snake prone area which are plans that he had discussed with Gina. Gina also supported AlexTalari who directs Joy ministries. A couple of you also support him. Alex provides assistance to many including education & vocational training for children and adults who have disabilities and those who are visually and hearing impaired. I have forwarded your funds to him also. Thank you all for your support. Your generosity makes an impact and saves lives.

Be blessed

kind regards

  • Dear Sister Rhonda

Greetings to you in the matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Wish you a happy New Year sister. May this year be the year of new happening in your life as the presence of God goes before you and gives you rest.

We had a wonderful Christmas this time. Celebrated with our church and the pastors. Distributed new saris to more than 30 widows. Thank you for making it possible. All our pastors also had a very good Christmas.

Sister, we had given 2000rs monthly to 16 pastors and 1000rs monthly to other pastors. But now because I am receiving in less amounts, I had to cut down their sponsorship to 1500rs each.

We have stopped a project that we were running previously of evening tuition along with dinner for poor children at one of our churches in Ponnur, we used to give previously due to lack of resources. But we are continuing feeding widows and taking care of an orphan girl named Susmitha at our home. Susmitha is now studying 7th standard (high school)

Sister, we are in serious need of a car for the ministry. Until recently i have been using my dad’s car which is now in repair garage. And life of the car is also finished in November. Because that’s very old car, there is no chance of extending life for that car. Please pray that God would provide us a good car.

My daughter Tabitha wrote an entrance test last week and

is now waiting for the results to do her masters in the medicine. Please uphold her in your prayers.

By the grace of God, the ministry is going on well and we could see the fruit of it. Please uphold me and my family in your prayers as we do to you all.

Much love in Christ – Pastor Ezra

Sponsors Letter

  • Dear Sponsors

Thank you for faithfully giving to support the men, women & children who are receiving vital assistance through Highway ministries in India.

I am continuing to send funds & make contact with Ezra every month.  Ezra has asked that I take a friend & visit them in India, however I am not able to at this time.  He & his lovely wife Vani are well & are doing all they can for their community & the Pastors they oversee. Their son in law is recovering well from an accident & is planting a church with Ezra’s daughter Kezia in Hyderabad. Ezra & Vani’s youngest daughter, Tabitha, is wanting to continue studies to become a nurse.

  • Photos of India.

Gina’s son recently forwarded some of her notebooks & (Early) photos of India. I thought it would be good to share a few of the photos with you all. Most of the photos I have chosen are of Gina with a few of Ezra & Vani, children, friends & family. Both Ezra & Vani have an amazing Godly heritage with parents & siblings who are also very strong in faith. I have added a photo of their fathers, both of whom I met when I went to India with Gina many years ago.  Ezra’s father Ps Israel (on the left in the last photo) was a dynamic preacher with signs & wonders following & Vani’s father Ps Bushinan (pictured on the right) would pray for several hours daily. My favorite photo is the one with Ezra, his brother & Gina laughing.

kind regards

God bless, Rhonda

Highway Ministries in Ponnur

  • Letter from Ps Ch Ezra

Dearly beloved in Christ,
Greetings in the Matchless name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, in this letter we want to share to you the work of expansion of kingdom of God through Highway Ministries in the villages of Guntur District,Andhra Pradesh.

  • Outreach

In the year 1996 God’s Missionary to India Late sister Gina Hanrahan came to A small town Ponnur, Guntur district to start the work of God, i was her field director.Living Waters
Together we built 23 churches in the remote villages and raised more than 100 orphans over the years, Out of whom many are ministers of the Gospel now.

  • 20 Sponsored Pastors

Currently in our Highway ministries there are 20 sponsored pastors to whom we are supporting monthly 2,000 INR, working in those areas in which we (Sister Gina and myself) did evangelical field works.

  • Widows and Orphans’

We are also into social work for the development of the socially outcasts especially with widows and orphans, we are also helping poor people to be self dependent by helping them get a job or start a small scale business like tailoring, taking tution for children, and food carts.

  • Rise Up Training

We are currently running an evening educational centre which also functions as a place for mentoring children who are from abusive family background at one of our churches.

We have raised up youth of the church to take up roles in preaching the gospel and sending them for bible training and giving them first hand experience in evangelism and planting churches.

So basically we are doing field evangelism, social work, church planting and raising up next generation leaders in the body of Christ.

  • Ongoing Support

Now that our dearly beloved sister has entered into His Glory, we need your continued prayer and financial support for the ministry here in India, so that money won’t be an hindrance for the expansion of His Kingdom. We encourage you to support Highway ministries in prayer and deed and be a partaker of the expansion of the Kingdom of God in this end time season. I thank everyone who is faithfully continuing the support. We thank you and Bless you in Jesus Name

Loads of love from India – Pastor Ezra
