Christians make use of an unfinished building in Sri Lanka.

Kingdom Building

Christians make use of an unfinished building in an undisclosed town in central Sri Lanka, where a native ministry is training indigenous missionaries who are overcoming entrenched belief in malevolent spirits, along with Buddhist and Hindu traditions, to present the gospel. Workers soon hope to finish construction of the building. Partly for cultural reasons, Sri Lankans prefer to meet in church buildings rather than homes, said an indigenous ministry director who trains church leaders in the country. "We want to finish the church construction this year, and we want to extend the church building in another town," he said. "We also want to build a church in a town in Sabaragamuwa Province – this is an urgent need, and we need at least $11,000. Congregations in three other towns also need church buildings."
