About Abraham Emmanuel
I was a born Hindu; at the age of 8 my whole family accepted the Lord. However, my journey with God did not start then. Just like the prodigal son, I walked away from God and family. The day I had nothing and felt hopeless, God touched me; and this led me to get closer to Him and serve Him. In 1993, I had the calling from God to pastor a church. So, with full of faith, I started Nazarene Mission, Sri Lanka.
The vision of Nazarene Mission is to reach out to the poorest of the poor in Sri Lanka; to preach the Gospel and bring souls to Christ. Our ministry focuses on people from tea and rubber plantations in the Central province and Southwest province of Sri Lanka; and people living in the slums of Colombo. The main church is located in Colombo, and it meets every Sunday for worship and during weekdays for Bible studies, women’s prayers, and family build-up meetings. The church had several branch churches in the tea plantations and praying for God’s provision to expand. Over 90 percent of Sri Lankans practice Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism collectively. As a church we yearn for the citizens to get to know Jesus Christ. We hope and pray for God’s wisdom and provision to spread and take the Gospel to people in the rural villages of Sri Lanka.
