The India Mission

Welcome

 

The work in India has produced over 2,000,000 baptisms, has built schools, clinics, and church buildings, preachers' training, publications and bibles, Lectures and Studies, Women's programs and Foster homes, even Gospel Films to be used in Conversion.

Jerris has been involved with the team that worked to produced all of this. Jerris first teamed up with Ron Clayton in 1987. The autonomous Team meets in Hydrabad to discuss shared goals. They discuss the statistics that are kept on the India Church of Christ and work on common goals.

Jerris has been a preacher, evangelist, and missionary for many years. Originally from Snyder, Texas Jerris N. 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.

    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.

    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.

INDIAN SPICE

Indiaspice350

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.

India Report - December 31,2004

Greetings in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. On Sunday, December 26, the day after Christmas one of the world’s deadliest natural disasters of all time struck Southeast Asia. Tsunami! We knew the word before December 26th. Now we know the full force of the event. Never again will it be just a word. Now it is a range of terrible emotions. And never again will we view the ocean in the quiet, serene way we once did

Dear Brethren,

The headline on the Front-page of tile Washington Times, July 12, 1999, was gripping: NUCLEAR POWERS 'TO END FIGHTING. My first thought was, "What is this?" How could I have missed a war between nuclear powers? Which nuclear powers--USA, Russia, France, China? None of these.

Dear Brethren,

"I'm back in the saddle again...out where a friend is a friend.” What a great song by Gene Autry. Following a long year of sickness, those wonderful lyrics, by the singing cowboy, are the music of our hearts. By the grace of God Juanita and I are fully back! She is cancer free, and arthritis surgery has greatly relieved much of the pain in my right hand. Thanks to so many of our readers who have supported us by means of prayers, cards, and emails.
