Just last month I visited some pastors in Galle where we have been running our extension classes.  They have 37 pastors who are keen to do our BA in ministry course. LBC CGS has an old building which was bought for the college.  I visited this property along with the pastors who are keen to renovate it and use it to run classes.  We are estimating $5000 to renovate the building and put some extra toilets in and also a guest room so that those who go down from here to teach can stay overnight.  And another $5000 to establish a theological library in Sinhala (this includes purchasing books in Sinhala from LBC Publications, CTS Publications, Bible Society etc., bookshelves, a few computers, photo copier – which alone is about 120,000 Sri-Lankan rupees – about $1000).  Hence in total we want to raise $10,000 for the Galle Project.

I am excited that there are so many who are keen to study in that area.  Attached are some pictures of the premises in Galle.
