Update #9: Sri Lanka Mission 2019
(Message sent 5:13 p.m. March 19, 2019)
We had a great meeting in Thisssamaharama with about 100 pastors and leaders there. They have very fond memories of the times Pastor Arlo and I have been there and it was good to spend the day there and see the things that God has done in that area over the past few years. There were 17 senior pastors and 9 full time pastors and we gave each of them a gift of money to help in their ministries. Then it was on the road again and off to Monaragala to attend a graduation ceremony at the Lighthouse church. Westside supports an after school computer program in this church where poor children can come and learn computer skills.
On the way we stopped off in Boga Lima at another children center that Westside built to see the development of some agricultural projects that we sponsored two years ago. We meet with the young pastor there and prayed for him and for rain as there has been a 9 month drought in the area.
We are doing well and heading into our last week here so please continue to pray for us and the word we are sharing with pastors and leaders in this nation.
