WILLS POINT, TX – Gospel for Asia (GFA World and affiliates like Gospel for Asia Canada) founded by Dr. K.P. Yohannan – Discussing the devastating flood in Sri Lanka, and the Gospel for Asia workers who provide ongoing support and relief to disaster victims.
In December, 24 families, all members of a Gospel for Asia-supported church in Sri Lanka, watched in horror as their homes were flooded by nearly three feet of water. The flood waters raged for 10 days, leaving those affected unable to work and provide for their families. The situation looked uncertain and scary, but through the compassionate care of fellow believers, these villagers found hope, help and healing.
Help for a Community in Need through Gospel for Asia Workers’ Support
After learning of the devastation in Colombo, Gospel for Asia-supported pastor Maran and Sister Janani visited the affected villagers, providing hot meals for many of the families. Seeing the extent of the community’s need, Pastor Maran requested additional assistance for the village.
On December 15, dry ration packets were distributed to the 24 families affected by the flooding. The rations were a blessing to the villagers and helped sustain them by providing food for one week.
