Blessing Children’s Ministries
Pastor John David Dimmili
Praise the Lord! Prayerful greetings to all of you in the Holy and only mighty saving name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is indeed a great honor and privilege for me to share about myself with you so that knowing about each other, we might come together to be bonded in the blood of Jesus Christ and share in all aspects for the widespread of the kingdom of God.
I am a senior Pastor John David Damilli, born and brought up from a Hindu background orthodox family in the village called Srungavuksham, Thondangi Mandal, and East Godavari District Andhra Pradesh in India. We were completely under the bondage of idols, ritual practices since our forefathers. I use to spend my life as I liked with friends, without any responsibilities, fully intoxicated with alcohol, smoking, watching unclean films, spoiling my life without knowing the abundance of grace of the forgiving love of Jesus Christ. I never cared of the good words of my village community and parents, but then I had a turning point in my life.
In the eternal plan of God even before the foundation of the world, one day a neighboring village pastor and the church team came to my village for outreach ministry. As I did not like Jesus Christ, I started fighting, scolding with bad language and warned the pastor to stop his ministry. My father was critically sick and due to lack of daily needs, treatment and poverty as a result he died in that same year. Again the same pastor which I scolded came to my house and comforted me with great words from the Holy Bible and preached God’s word. None of the village community comforted me like this man of God comforted me.
Though the pastor did not see my father, but knowing that I lost my father, the pastor introduced the heavenly father to me and invited me to come to the church. I understood that something new was happening in my life. As I slowly started going to church and reading the Holy Bible, the holy scriptures from Psalms 118:8 touched my heart. Then I submitted my heart to listening to God’s word, the Holy Spirit started leading me to increase my faith in the Lord. I confessed my sins before the Lord and accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord; I became the child of God. I was baptized in 1995. This is my life changing testimony when I received Jesus Christ.
I married with Aruna July 26, 2001 in this same year I received my Bachelor of Theology Degree. God provided a small rented house, a palm leaves hut. In the beginning of our ministry we prayed day and night by faith. There were times that we fainted because of not having food and we did not have proper clothing. The first offering was IRN 10 but then became 100 folds of blessing in the ministry.
We were unable to have children for 5 years. We were afraid and discouraged regarding the children but we fasted and prayed pleading with God day and night. We visited many doctors and my own people were mocking me saying, “Being a Pastor, God’s servant, why are you having this problem?” Bearing all These humiliations we trusted the promise of God and we continued with the ministry works. The doctor then declared to us there was no chance of us having children.
At this decoration, my wife was so discouraged. In the year 2006 one day my wife had great pain, she was rolling so severely. I prayed to God to stop the pain. I was losing my control and became discouraged. I started wrestling with God in prayer.
God revealed in a vision that my wife was healed. The next month my wife became pregnant and 9 months later she delivered a baby boy that we named Clint Paul Rein Hard. Wonderful! God did wonders in our life and then gave us another child, a girl, we named Leecy Rachel Renee.
