Discover the Word Sri Lanka Project

About This Project

Since 1980, Discover the Word – of Our Daily Bread Ministries – has been inviting listeners to join in weekday conversations about biblically-based topics. Available on radio and digital listening platforms, Discover the Word strives to make the life-changing wisdom of the Bible accessible to all.

Discover the Word desires to help those in Sri Lanka start 2018 on the right path by providing Our Daily Bread Annual Editions to those who desire to grow in their walk with our Lord. This annual edition will provide encouragement from Scripture and devotional thoughts from writers around the world. As a loyal listener of Discover the Word we know you love digging into God’s Word and this is a fantastic opportunity to support those in Sri Lanka with a solid Biblical resource.

We have a goal of sponsoring 15,000 copies through our “Sponsor-A-Book” program, which will get God’s Word to those who cannot afford the devotional.

And you can be a part of it!

Thousands of tourists flock to Sri Lanka each year, drawn by its white sandy beaches, clear blue waters, and culturally-rich cities. Behind this glowing picture, however, Sri Lankans are still picking up the pieces of their lives. Years of battle between government troops and separatists, in a 26 year long civil war, ended in 2009. This war left 100,000 people dead and an economy crippled. However, the country is recovering. With the iconic A9 highway open again, along with other key roads, cities like Jaffna in the north and Trincomalee in the east, which were previously inaccessible due to the war, are now open. Even more important is that these cities are now accessible to Bible resources. Sri Lanka is a country of 20 million people with less than 7% Christian. We now have new opportunities to proclaim God’s wonderful message of love, peace, and reconciliation.

We need your help, your support, and your prayers to meet our goal of sponsoring 15,000 books. $2 covers the printing cost for one Our Daily Bread annual edition for Sri Lanka. Please donate, and share with your community of friends who want to be a part of bringing the life-changing wisdom of the Bible to Sri Lanka.
