THIRTEEN NEW WORKERS SUPPORTED IN SRI LANKA!
Volume XXXXVIII No. 2
The ‘Good News’ this month is that by faith once more we have
added to the anointed national workers this ministry of Abundant
Life Crusades is supporting. At only 25 US dollars per month we
are able to support a full time minister-worker in Sri Lanka.
Marge and I have ministered in the very south of India but have
never ministered the Gospel in Sri Lanka.
Below you can
see Marge and I who seem to be looking down at a map of India
with the Island Nation of Sri Lanka at the bottom of the map,
population of 21,513,990 with the land mass slightly larger than
the state of West Virginia. Ceylon is the former English name
given to Sri Lanka by the British, under their occupation of the
island nation in South Asia as a dominion in the British
Commonwealth between 1948 and 1972 and as British Ceylon during
the occupation of Ceylon between 1815 and 1948.
Prior to that is
was called Ceilao during the Portuguese occupation between 1656
and 1796. It was called Zeylan by the Dutch during their
occupation of Sri Lanka between 1505 and 1656. Sinhala is the
official and national language used by 74% and the Tamil
national language is only 18%. However, English is commonly used
in government and is spoken knowledgeably by about 10% of the
population. The people are Buddhist 69.1%, Muslim 7.6%, Hindu
7.1%, Christian 6.2%.
As you can see there is a great need for
‘EVANGELISM! We have asked you in the past to lay your hands on
the photos as an act of faith and pray for these new workers we
are supporting. Pray that God will keep them and that they will
be mightily anointed of God.
That He would use them to the winning of the Nation of Sri
Lanka to the knowledge of our great God and Saviour Jesus
Christ. Pray for their safety. As you may know from the news
that since the outbreak of hostilities between the government
and armed Tamil separatists in the mid-1980s, thousands have
perished and several hundred thousand Tamil civilians have fled
More than 200,000 Tamils have sought refuge in the
West. In this war-torn and spiritually needy country it is a
great joy to be able to support these 13 men of God who are
winning the lost of Sri Lanka to Christ. They join the many
workers of India, Cuba, Latin America, China, Taiwan and Africa
that this ministry is supporting through people just like you.
It is wonderful that day and night, 24/7 there are workers out
there somewhere in the world winning the lost to Christ, going
to places we cannot go, eating food that we cannot eat and
speaking languages that we do not speak, doing the Commission of
We all have a part through our prayers, faith and
support. The Bible tells us in (2 Cor 6:1 KJV) We then, as
workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not
the grace of God in vain. Please continue to pray for this
ministry that not only want to win souls personally but help
others to do so. God bless you and yours is our daily prayer.
