The Lord has been faithful to fulfil His promises in order to equip the believers, raise the leaders to passionately reach the lost and compassionately touch the under privileged.
In the year 1980, Ps. Daniel Navakumar came to Germany and was initially employed in the US army base located in Frankfurt a. M. and was attending an American Church along with his family. In 1983 the riots in Sri Lanka, resulted in triggering a civil war all across Sri Lanka. This caused many Sri Lankan Tamils to leave Sri Lanka and migrate to several countries, one of which was Germany. During that time, God spoke to Daniel Navakumar, through his Pastor. Bob Brooks, to commit his life to minister to the Sri Lankan Diaspora . God opened doors for Daniel Navakumar to share the good news to the Tamils who had just arrived in Germany. He started to visit these people and shared about the love and compassion of the Lord Jesus Christ and the salvation available through Him. To his surprise many began to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.
At the juncture, Ps. Daniel Navakumar was taking the new converts and other individuals who were interested in coming to the Church where he attended. Thousands of them had heard the gospel and many hundreds of them deeply committed and took water baptism. Pastor. Bob Brooks saw the outcome and the revival took place among the Tamil people, he had motivated and encouraged Daniel Navakumar to consider going into full time ministry in order to reach the Tamil People. In the year 1985 a fellowship in the name of “Sri Lankan Prayer Group” was established. After that many believers started to gather to fast and pray and be a part in all night prayer in various cities across Germany. This prayer movement caused a great revival and many started to accept and commit their lives to Jesus Christ and to serve Him.
During that Prayer Revival, God spoke leading us to become a Church. In October 1988, in a place called Mülheim a. d. Ruhr, we started our first service and named our Church, Living Word Missionary Church. Since then in Germany and also from neighbouring countries, Tamil people started to attend our services. This revival started to spread across the European countries and the Lord led us to plant many branches, not only in Germany but also in Italy, France, United Kingdom and in Canada.
