BIBLE SCHOOL REPORT
Our Bible College of mission was started in June, 2011. There are 18 students from different states and regions. There are one from K State, two from P Region, two from S State, two from N CState, and twelve from S C State. The school’s motto is from the book of Ephesians Chapter four and verse twelve: “To prepare God’s people for works of service… “ We have compulsory schedule for students to go Outreach Evangelism once a week.
Next, students are interested in learning guitar, thus, we teach them how to play guitar and key. Additionally, they are learning notes of basic musical scale. They enjoy spending time at Bible School.
Mr. S, a first year student, wrote how he learns from here: “Before coming to this school, I cannot understand the Word of God and am very weak in spirituality because His Word is very deep for me. I was encouraged by teacher by reading this scripture portion from Joshua 1:5, (no one will be able to stand up against you all the day of your life and I will be with you), so, I praise God and give thanks to Him who strengthens me always. At the same time, by seeing the teachers’ committed life and character, I am pleased and decide to share the Word of God to unreached areas. At the beginning I did not know how to write and read English, but now I improve writing and reading English and general knowledge in here”. It is a great blessing for study in Bible school.
One of the ladies said, “When I lived in my town, I was proud of myself. I behave as I like in the past. The worst thing is that I never put God first in my life. But when I came to Bible School, I started know about God and His love. And then I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and Lord in here, and I was baptized immediately. I thank God for making me to come to Bible School and to be born again in Christ. I am encouraged not only by seeing my teachers’ active in spiritual life and good character and motive but also their ways of living in front of students. My life is absolutely changed in here. In the past, I was ashamed of standing before people, but now, I bravely stand and share His word in front of audience. I am influenced by His word, love, faithfulness and goodness. I physically improve English writing and reading more and more, and spiritually have a burning desire for the lost souls who did not know Christ as their Savior and Lord. I decided to serve God after graduating because He changed my life totally, and threw away my personal desire. I praise God for all the things He has done for me.”
HOME CELL REPORT
Home visiting is essential in serving the Lord for growing spiritually. Pastor has been going to house to house visiting to encourage them and pray for them once a week. They’re thankful for God for this warmness and showing our church’s care each house. One of households said, “We feel that we are blessed in participating in this church”. It makes them warmness to them because as soon as the Sunday service is over, all members were going back to their respective home, so there are no fellowship with church members. So, we decided to have Home visitation for each one in once in a week.
WOMENS BIBLE STUDY REPORT
Women have Bible studies once in a month. They share the situation and circumstance they faced, and testify how God shows His ways in their lives. It is believed that this Bible studies plays a significant role in Christian life. They pray for ward authority, township authority, regional place, and other things for human rights and the presidents of Union of Myanmar so that the government will allow Christian to build Church and to worship God freely in any area. A woman said, “Even though I face difficulties at home, all my burdens are lost when we exchange our troubles sharing each other”. This Bible Studies group, they studied verse by verse. And then discuss all together.
