In mid 2013, generous gifts from an Advent Christian Church and individuals in the United States enabled Pastor Kenneth to purchase 10 acres of paddy field (pictured left in 2013) for his organisation– Gospel for Myanmar. At the time Pastor Kenneth indicated that the land would enable them to grow rice both for the families of their members and to sell to provide income to ensure that their ministries continue.
Pastor Kenneth is again praising the Lord – this time for a good harvest from the land, which is situated in a village about 25 kilometres from Yangon. He recently wrote…
“Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We always remember you in our prayer time.
I and my family and all our mission work here in Myanmar is going well as you pray for us. I do very much appreciate and thankful for your love and care for us.
Along with this letter I send you some pictures of our paddy field. This year we plant two kinds. One is green gram and another one is paddy. It is very beautiful. This year God blesses our field and our green gram and paddy are very good and very beautiful. Let us continue to help each other by prayer. May the Lord continue to bless you.”
Google describes green gram, also known as the mung bean or lentil, as “a small round bean similar in shape to the field pea. ….it cooks up fast and has a sweet flavor. With its high fiber and nutrient content, it offers a number of health benefits.” and calls it “a lean source of protein.” Paddy, of course, is rice.
Please thank the Lord once again for the donors who provided this land for our brothers and sisters in Christ in Myanmar, and thank Him also for good harvests for them this year.
