VOM, Sri Lanka:

The National Christian Evangelical Alliance of Sri Lanka (NCEASL) reports the wife of martyred Pastor Edirisinghe is recovering from severe injuries sustained during an attack that killed her husband. "The NCEASL chairman visited Shiromi yesterday. She is experiencing a great recovery, she speaks, breathes well and has been transferred to Kandy General for surgery to remove [the] bullet," NCEASL reported. Mrs. Edirisinghe was critically injured on February 17 when two assailants gunned down her husband outside their home in Ampara, Sri Lanka. She sustained critical injuries to her stomach and their two-year-old son was also injured in the attack. Pray for her quick recovery from the remaining surgeries. Ask God to heal her emotions and to touch their son with the love of Christ. Pray God will give them supernatural ability to forgive the assailants and for their testimony to draw nonbelievers into fellowship with Christ.

Thanks for sharing this. I stumbled on your blog when doing a search about North Korea. I have been learning a lot about the situation in North Korea, I guess because it's been North Korea freedom week. I don't have time to really read more of your blog right now, but I think I'll stop back. It looks like there's some more here I'd be interested to read.

I just recently learned that the situation in Myanmar is just as bad as North Korea, but it doesn't receive as much international attention because Myanmar doesn't pose a nuclear threat. Believers in both countries can really use our prayers and support.
