Brother Vijay Kumar (Earlier called as Suri Babu) was killed on June 8th, 2016 by anti Christian elements for doing God’s work in Gulletivada, a tribal region in east godavari district of Andhra Pradesh. He was serving God and doing his ministry for last 5 years with these tribal people.


Pastor Vijay Babu, was trained earlier in 1990’s at Believers Church in Hyderabad, then he completed the training, he along with other person was sent to jaggampeta in East Godavari to start his ministry. He was assigned to that location, and he preached the Gospel of Jesus Christ in that area for a decade.

He was focussed and dedicated to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to these tribal villagers. He even learnt Koya language to preach the Gospel to tribals.
