Sri Lankan Quotes By Gary Shteyngart

These are all good things, I said. But no one knows where your country is or who you are.

The best you can do is get the United Nations involved, as in East Timor. Maybe they'll send troops."

Sri Lankan Quotes By Timothy J. Keller

to the world. God created both body and soul, and the resurrection of Jesus shows that he is going to redeem both body and soul. The work of the Spirit of God is not only to save souls but also to care and cultivate the face of the earth, the material world. It is hard to overemphasize the uniqueness of this vision.

If you host your training in a nice Colombo (Sri Lanka's capital) hotel with a nice venue and a buffet lunch, we can get fifty to one hundred pastors and ministry leaders to come. They will come, and you can get some great pictures for
