Bishop G. Parishuda Babu Gadelli, known as Bishop Babu, the founder and overseer of Orphans’ Faith Home in Machilipatnam, India, recently visited churches in the New Orleans area. The Rev. David Rodriguez, pastor of the Christian Fellowship Church, together with Richard McGovern, pastor of Brandywine Christian Fellowship Church, Coatsville, Pa., visited the orphanage in previous years. In addition to money, they brought roll-up beds, watches, sandals, candy and daily life necessities. “There is real need for this orphanage in India as many parents cannot provide the necessary food for their children and often abandon them on the streets,” Rodriguez said. “We also conducted pastors’ conferences while we were there. We have to raise $25 for each pastor to attend the conference. Each pastor also received a Bible in the Telugu language. The largest conference we were able to provide was in 2007, with the attendance of 3600 pastor from across India,” Rodriguez said.
