Bud Centre Christmas
Arrival in Sri Lanka
Pastor Marlo Johnson
I landed in Sri Lanka at 2 a.m. Saturday, December 17th and arrived at Nish and Kristin’s place around 6 a.m. Straight to bed for a quick nap, then a shower, and I was off to the BUD Center Christmas program! The kids who attend the BUD Centre sang, danced, and performed a drama for their families. It was a wonderful day, where Nish’s brother (a pastor) shared the gospel with the children and their families.
Nish and Kristin have developed a strong community, and it was easy to see the love expressed within it. At the end of the program, every child received a gift bag and every family received a hamper. We are a part of this ministry as the hampers were funded by a gift from Westside. What a blessing to partner with Nish, Kristin, and the other workers at the BUD Centre. Truly, it was a great day and what a great way to kick off my time in Sri Lanka. Pray that the message shared will impact both the kids and their families.
