Living Light Ministries is an orphanage in Kuchipudi, Andhra Pradesh, India which is a little inland on the south eastern coast of the sub-continent. The ministry is run by John Babu, Pastor.
The Lord gave a vision to Pastor John Babu in 1980.
God gave him a vision about orphans, destitute, slum, street children, the elderly, as well as the local Pastors of the area.
Pastor John started the mission work in 1999 to share the Love of Jesus Christ with these people.
Living Light Urban & Rural Development Society is officially registered by Indian Government in 1999 (reg. #39).
People just call us "Living Light Ministries."
The focus of the ministry is in Kuchipudi, Adhra Pradesh, India, where people need the love of Jesus as He is the light of the world.
Pastor John & his wife, Jaya started Living Light Orphans Home with 5 kids in 1999. Now there are 38 kids in the orphanage.
Living Light provides them with food, clothing, shelter and education.
It is the hope and prayer of Living Light and Pastor John to grow the ministry to help the needy in the area as well as continuing to give the children the help and family that any child needs.
Here are pastor Babu's needs, as listed from his website:
We have 38 kids in the orphanage. Who are in need of daily food,clothing,shelter and education etc... Each child need a 30$ a month. You can sponsor one or more children at a time or you can adopt our whole Orphanage on a monthly basis.
2) Need to buy land and built the own orphan home:
We need to buy one acre land and to built the own orphanage building for 200 kids and to accommodate them.
3) Free Education Christian School:
We need to built a Free education Christian School and to give free education to the orphans,poor kids,street children,slum children and "Dalith children" who are untouchables in India. We have to give them a free education and to give them a better life.
4) Need to buy a School bus to send the kids to school:
Do you know Everyday our Children walk 6 kilometers to reach their school from our orphanage. They became very sick and they got leg pains. In India we don't have proper transportation. We need to buy a School van for kids.
5) Church Planting:
We are planting churches around the country. We still need to built more then 200 churches around the country.

We are helping the elderly with rice, and little pension every month.
