Sri Lankan Beauty

Colombo, Sri Lanka- We landed in Sri Lanka early this morning and spent the day meeting with the local church. This country has laws in place to prevent Christians aid workers from moving freely. For those living here it has made things very difficult.

Tomorrow we take an airplane up to the northern part of the country. This is a area that has been in a political/religious war for years. We will be going there to check on the developments of a local mission whose goal is to provide the basic necessities to the refugees of that war. I am looking forward to seeing this work and seeing what AMM can do to help!

The country of Sri Lanka is beautiful. The place we are staying is right next to the beach. The people are amazingly friendly, helpful, and the live life in a kaleidoscope of color. It is devastating to see the damage that has come to these beautiful people due to years of political unrest, poverty, and now the tsunami. I believe that there will be a change for the better soon.

The area where I am going has no internet and likely no electricity. I will not be able to update this site for about a week. Please pray for me and every other worker in the world for the harvest time is here! God Bless
