Dear Friends,

Always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect, having a good conscience 1 Peter 3:15-16

Alleluia! Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed! Alleluia!

The resurrection of Jesus gives us the sure and certain hope of eternal life. Because Jesus rose from the dead, we know that He is the Son of God whose death paid the penalty for all sin and that He will one day return and raise all believers to eternal life.

This is the truth that is proclaimed from the Lutheran congregations in Sri Lanka, taught in the seminary in India, and is at the heart of the Augsburg Confession.

The Lutheran Heritage Foundation recently published a fresh translation of the Augsburg Confession and many were gifted to the Ceylon Evangelical Lutheran Church. The above picture shows the ordained pastors and evangelists with these new gifts.
Inside our latest newsletter, you will learn more about the re-dedication of a newly renovated church in Sri Lanka, baptisms, confirmations, and about Concordia Theological Seminary in Nagercoil, India.

Thanks be to God for you continued prayers and support. The Lord is working through you to do His work in your home congregations, Sri Lanka, and around the world. Thank you.

Together in service to our Resurrected Savior, Jesus Christ,
