LOVE IN THE WORD CHURCH – Tallapudi, Andhra Pradesh

Pastor Sirra Nani (Santhi) Babu

Pastor Sirra Nani Babu (Joseph Raju) was brought up in a Christian family in Hukumpet, Andhra Pradesh, India. His father was a pastor and had five children. Pastor Sirra was the middle child and he has four brothers. When Nani was young, his parents dedicated him to God in a country where Christians are severely outnumbered. He leads a disciplined and prayerful life. Like many youth, after he entered his 10th grade, he decided that he did not want to do God’s work. So he became an electrician, learning how to wire and cable homes for electrical service. One faithful day when electrician Sirra was up on an electrical pole when he received a major shock that should have pushed him off the pole to his death, but Pastor Sirra says that God was with him that day. H decided from that moment that maybe he should return to do what his parents dedicated him to do – serve the Lord. Sirra started fasting and prayer in 1996 and in June 5, 1996 was baptized. One day while praying, the Lord called Sirra to preach and on November 15, 1996, Pastor Sirra began his formal ministry. Jeremiah 1:8 became his call text and he dedicated his life to doing ministry.

Pastor Sirrai went to Bible school at Bhimavaram from 1997-1999. On September 24, 1999, he married his wife Santhi Kumar. He has three lovely daughters that work with he and his wife in the ministry. His church LOVE IN THE WORD CHURCH – TALLAPUDI, ANDHRA PREDESH, INDIA (formerly, THE LIVING SAMARITAN MINISTRIES) is in Tallapudi Town in the Godavari District in the state of Andhra Pradesh, India.
