Story number 3 for 15 Mar 2001

(Sri Lanka)–Open Doors is confirming a report of an assault on Christians in Sri Lanka. 36 believers were injured when about 100 Buddhist extremists assaulted the congregation of the New Life Christian Center during a service last month. Ironically, the pastor and some members of the congregation had attended an Open Doors seminar, “Preparing for Persecution,” just three weeks earlier. The situation remains tense, and extremists continue to threaten believers. Please pray that the Sri Lankan church remains strong.
