Church faces opposition

October 20, 2018 

The pastor received a call from the Coordinating Secretary to the Chief Minister of the Uva Province asking him to attend a meeting at the local community hall. The pastor arrived at the hall with his son at around 05:30 p.m. 03 villagers were also present at the meeting. The villagers demanded the pastor stop the construction of his church and attempted to persuade the Coordinating Secretary to support them. However, the government official asserted the pastor’s right to carry out his religious worship activities.
