Christmas Care Distribution Makes Way for New Church

[182] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for churches in Sri Lanka.


A church in the Batticaloa area of Sri Lanka conducted their first Christmas Care Pack distribution early in the summer. One of the distribution points was in a hunters’ village deep in the jungle. The children in this village were overjoyed to receive their packs. No church was in this village prior to the distribution, but this event gave front-line workers the opportunity to negotiate with the village leader to allocate land to build a church. These workers are now in the process of procuring the land. Pray for the church to be firmly established in this village and the whole area.

  • Thank You that Christians in the Batticaloa region of Sri Lanka had a burden to reach this village deep in the jungle, and that the village leader agreed to allow them to build a church there. Once the land is procured, and the building process begun, create an interest in the hearts of the people to know more about Jesus Christ and His love for them.
