On Monday 16th Dec, a full moon Buddhist holiday, a preaching initiative was launched in the capital city Colombo. Postal invitations had been sent to contacts in the region.
In a fairly typical pattern for this culture, many said they intended to be there, but only 4 turned up. Given that we are in the ‘pre-Christmas madness’ period, many are running to and fro, but knowledge is not being increased!
All of the 4 attendees that did come along were known to us and we were thankful for the opportunity our Father gave us to witness to them.
Brother Russell and sister Margueritia Taylor are with us from Perth, and Brother Russell presented two sessions on What Happens When We Die, and God’s Coming Kingdom on Earth. Brother Frank Ryan presented one session on Bible Prophecy Fulfilling Before Our Eyes. Brother Malik and sister Chatu provided translation into Sinhala.
Approximately 11 members and young people from Negombo Ecclesia travelled south to provide welcomed support.
All attendees expressed their intention to attend the follow-up seminar next month, and we pray that, by God’s grace, some of the others who expressed interest will come along then too. We hope this initiative will begin to grow another ‘hub’ for the Truth to be preached, where interested friends who find it too far to travel to Negombo, can learn the Truth under the guidance of bro Frank who is now living in Colombo.
