Sri Lanka

In 2014, TWR Canada began sponsoring a 30-minute weekly program, God’s Unique Book, to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ to the majority Sinhala Buddhist community in Sri Lanka. The first year of programming was based on the book By This Name (by Canadian author John Cross), and sought to explain what makes the God of the Bible unique from all other gods or spirits. Following completion of this book, the TWR team in Sri Lanka created original programming covering topics such as salvation, the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, who God is, what the Bible is, the authority of the Bible, and family issues. God’s Unique Book is aired on national radio at night, and reports indicate that families are listening to the programs together, and that house churches are being formed as a result.

Impact:

“I listen to TWR programs occasionally and the Lord spoke to me through today’s program. I understood that I should not blame God. I have a very bad past and often it makes me feel guilty. I am coming back to Jesus after one and half years.”

“My brother and sister listen to your programs regularly, but this is the first time I am listening to your program. I like it very much and I pray secretly. My parents do not allow me to follow Christ. I listen to the messages through my earphones. I was very sad during Christmas, but, however, God made me listen to your program. I believe that my parents will also come to Christ.”

Prayer Requests:

  • Pray for listeners who are choosing to follow God after listening to God’s Unique Book.
  • Pray for the team in Sri Lanka as they respond to listeners.
