The Unreached Peoples Prayer Profiles
Sri Lanka is a large island republic in
the Indian Ocean, just off the southeast coast of India. Tea and rubber
are the most important export products.
Civil war has damaged trade and
development, and has destroyed tourism. Buddhists' traditional image of
non-violence has been tarnished by the long conflict
between the Buddhist
Sinhala and Hindu Tamil.
Buddhism is the state religion and is
protected and promoted. Though freedom of religion is assured,
discrimination and rising anti-Christian feelings exist. However,
of decline, the church is beginning to grow again.
