The Rev. Steven Mahlburg, LCMS missionary to Sri Lanka, wrote this update regarding work in Sri Lanka. As he encourages in the letter, please keep
The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod began work in Sri Lanka in 1927 as a natural outgrowth of its work in India. Missionaries worked primarily in the mountainous tea estate region of central Sri Lanka among the Tamil-speaking Hindus. Between 1998 and 2013, there were no resident LCMS missionaries in Sri Lanka.
