Kamal plans to work in a parish back home and also teach at CTS.
Global Ministries is very proud of the academic performance of these young men and the contributions they have made to their academic communities. Jude Sutharshan, Rohaan Premaranjan, and Anthony Suthakar from CACM have graduated in the recent past. David Nirushikan will continue one more year at Eden to finish his Master of Theological Studies course. Meanwhile, two others - Biyoora and Selvakumar are pursuing their M.Div studies at United Theological Seminary in Manila, Philippines.
Global Ministries is proud of these young men and woman who are preparing themselves to a ministry of witnessing to the transforming power of the gospel in the war-torn areas of Sri Lanka. Since 2005, CACM, an heir of the 200-year-old American Ceylon Mission, has made a name for itself through its courageous stand for truth, honesty and justice.
