Bullard graduated from Lubbock Christian University, Abilene Christian University, and Sunset School of Preaching. He has preached in Texas, Pennsylvania, and spent 11 years in Great Falls, Virginia. In 1985, he became a full-time missionary to India under the oversight of the Elders at the Manassas, Virginia Church of Christ. Jerris is married to Juanita, who is originally from Baltimore. They have both completed numerous mission journeys to India; by 2008 Jerris had made 51 and Juanita 20 mission trips to India.

    To everything there is a season” (Eccl 3:1-8). “A time to be born—a time to die,a time to  plant—a time to pluck what is planted,a time to gain—a time to lose…a time to keep silence—a  time to speak.”God made every thing beautiful in its TIME. A multi-national company in the USA works during the day & at night turns over its work to India. In this way the company is working around the clock. God gave 24 hours each day for everyone—& if you don’t do the important things while you have the time, you may live to regret it.

    They come to the Kakinada School of Preaching from across India — including Bihar and Orissa states, where Christians routinely suffer persecution. Some bear the light skin and Asian features of Mainipur state in India’s far east. A few are from Myanmar, a nation in Southeast Asia where religious gatherings often are restricted or prohibited.

The Dharoor Experience

dharoor

Every year for the past 85 years or so, the Methodists from Hyderabad and surrounding districts have conducted a huge camp meeting near Dharoor (a small village in Ranga Reddy District of Andhra Pradesh). This camp meeting is always in November, and is held in a big open field. It has grown from 10,000 in the inaugural year to about 10 lakhs today (1 lakh=100,000). [This is one million people in attendance.] I went this year to see what was going on. I will tell you why.

Report - November 2009

"CANCER." That's what the doctor said. The "routine" mammogram with its accompanying "routine" recall for another test because "something is just not as clear as it ought to be" was just another test like Juanita had experienced so many times before. We had gotten used to hearing such words, not comfortable with such language, but accustomed to hearing it. This was no doubt another such annoyance. I casually said, "Let's go get this over with so that we can begin our visits to the brethren and make our reports" about another great mission with which God had blessed us. Little did we know how that routine test would change our plans and our lives. It was cancer...and it was fast growing. It had spread to the Sentinel Lymph node. The surgeon removed 28 lymph nodes, and while only one was found to be cancerous...it was in the Sentinel lymph node... the one which first spreads the disease to the rest of the body.

Dear Brethren,

 

Greetings to you in the precious name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. That greeting may not seem so much a trite formula for beginning my news report if one reflects on the fact that I have been in a land where the names of Lord Shiva, Lord Krishna, and Lord Buddha are commonly heard. But I have a dream and a longing for the day when only the name of the God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit will be uttered by all the people of India, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

Dear Brethren,

Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Most readers have heard about Juanita's complicated gallbladder and abdominal surgery. This was followed by a lengthy, difficult, and often painful recovery. We apologize if this news has not reached you. Briefly, let me inform you that Juanita is now doing very well. It will take some time before she regains her full energy, but Juanita expects to be able to return to India as scheduled on August 8th.
