When Pastor Ranjan of Naula, Sri Lanka, approached local authorities for a permit to build a worship place, they refused. He then built an extension on his house to serve as a place of Christian worship. Under the influence of local Buddhist monks, police and government officials have declared the space an illegal worship place. They are threatening to seize and destroy not just the extension but Pastor Ranjan’s entire house. Pastor Ranjan’s wife is experiencing medical problems and depression as a result of this persecution, and believers are reluctant to attend church because of government scrutiny. Pray for this family and the church that meets in their home.
