I'd been in touch with Jonathan
Bonk at the Overseas Ministries Study Center (OMSC) to see if he had received
any word about Nalini Jayasuriya who, as you may remember, returned to her home
in Sri Lanka following her time here at OMSC
(and her exhibit at ISM/YDS). Thankfully, she is fine and was able to get
through to friends in Florida, who passed the word along.
In his reply, he mentioned that the OMSC
community is raising some money to assist relief operations in Sri Lanka. They "will be sending a cheque
to Bishop Duleep de Chickera at the end of this month. He is the Anglican
bishop of Colombo." Checks can be made
out to OMSC, but donors should write "Sri Lanka Relief" on the memo
line; they can be given to Judy Stebbins at OMSC.Thanks,Gale Pollen.
