Christians and Muslims continue to be persecuted by Buddhist extremists. Hundreds of Christian families remain displaced and are struggling to survive. Anyone who converts to Christianity is seen as betraying their family and community. New believers are often harassed, discriminated against and many even face violent persecution. Many churches have been asked to shut down.

 Pray: For reconciliation between different religious and ethnic groups in Sri Lanka.
