Project: Sri Lanka Mission

  • Post category:Asia / Projects

Project ID: LK0007-62714

The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s (LCMS) church body partner in Sri Lanka, the Ceylon Evangelical Lutheran Church (CELC), needs funding to support, maintain and grow its ministry presence in this South Asian island nation of mostly Buddhists and Hindus. There are currently some 15 worshiping Lutheran congregations and mission stations with more than 600 members. Four ordained pastors and five evangelists serve this faith community through preaching, teaching and outreach. Lutheran churches and mission stations are located around the island. The CELC longs to reach more people with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Yet the lack of resources is a constant constraint: Church building repairs and supplies are needed, as well as Christian books and materials. Almost half the population in Sri Lanka exists on less than five dollars per day, creating opportunities for mercy projects, such as basic school supplies for local students. Support for this ministry project would enable the church and the community to thrive both physically and spiritually.
