Herbert W. Armstrong founded the Worldwide Church of God in the late 1930s, as well as Ambassador College in 1946, and was an early pioneer of radio and tele-evangelism, originally taking to the airwaves in the 1930s from Eugene, Oregon.

Recent news reports about Sri Lanka have not all been good. We sent a team to this island nation to get the big picture for our readers. Here is their report. Our firsthand investigation of Sri Lanka has been eye-opening. Among the lands of South Asia the island nation of Sri Lanka is certainly fortunate. Its palm-fringed beaches are washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. In the interior, there are fertile farmlands, lush forests and cool green mountains where some of the best tea in the world is grown. The population of just more than 16 million hardly overcrowds the land. And the people-72 percent Sinhalese and 20 percent Tamils are generally healthy and literate. Sri Lanka has been able to avoid the worst of the hunger and hopeless poverty that neighboring nations in this part of the world have to face.
