Encourage Children From Sri Lanka

On Easter Sunday, 2019, as churches in Sri Lanka gathered to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, eight bombs exploded across the country. Thousands of lives were changed in an instant with hundreds dead, injured or missing after the blasts.

One of the churches most deeply affected was Zion Church, at which 30 believers (including 14 children) lost their lives and over a hundred more were injured.

Open Doors local partners are working with believers from Zion church and their families, many of whom are struggling to process the events of that day. Many of these believers are children.

Please pray for these children as they come to terms with what has happened. You can write to encourage them. Many do not understand English, so please keep your messages simple and colourful. Your letters will be delivered close to Christmas, so you can include Christmas greetings if you’d like to.

Please send cards and letters by 30 October to PO Box 51236 Tawa, Wellington 5249
