Benjamin Clough, Rev. & Mrs William Harvard, Rev. George Erskine, Rev. Thomas Squance, and Rev. James Lynch, who worked as missionaries pioneering to bring Methodism to Sri Lanka. Thank you for the many blessings you have given Methodist church to grow steadily, strongly and firmly within 200 years in our island despite all the hardships and the unpleasant experiences the church underwent. We thank you for the contribution that was given towards education, Spirituality, the improvement in the Health care sector and the improvement in social services due to the commitment and the vision of our missionaries. We remember and give thanks to you for the lives of martyrs and the many Christian workers who were committed to their ministry within the past 200 years.
