Pastor SudhakarRao also runs an orphanage, where he also lives with his wife and three children. FGEA is supporting the basic needs of 55 orphan children (e.g. food, clothing, medicines and school uniforms/equipment). Although schooling (including a school meal) is provided freely by the state, no other official assistance is given. FGEA is therefore providing monthly grants to support the orphans. Pastor SudhakarRao and his wife provide instruction to the orphans in the scriptures and the Christian faith. In January 2013 Dr Sadler opened an extension to the orphanage funded by FGEA to alleviate overcrowding; this has significantly improved the conditions for the orphans. The FGEA branch is officially registered with the state of Andhra Pradesh.
FGEA has funded the purchase of Telugu Bibles for local distribution amongst churches. Dr Sadler has visited India several times, the most recent visit being in January 2017. Further details can be found on the News
The photos below show Dr Sadler and Pastor SudhakarRao being welcomed at the official opening of the extension to the orphanage building in 2013 and the gathering inside of orphans, local church members and ministers.
In addition to the work in India, openings have arisen for book translation and publication for free distribution in the neighbouring country of Myanmar (Burma).
