Update from Pastor Kenneth – President of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar
In answer to a recent enquiry concerning whether the very difficult situation in the Myanmar State of Rakhine, with hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims fleeing as refugees to neighbouring Bangladesh, had impacted the outreach ministries of the ACCM in that State, Pastor Kenneth replied as follows…
“Thank you very much for your prayer, your love and care for we the mission workers here in Myanmar. By the Grace of God we are safe and going well. But one of Pastor Joseph’s mission fields in Rakhine State was affected by the problems. Pastor Joseph is to go and visit there, but because of the problem he cannot visit.
And other difficulties that we have are in Chin state, there was heavy rain in the past weeks and there is land slides. We have transportation difficulties and in Sagaing Division because of the heavy rain there were floods and many bridges collapsed. Our people who are living there are having difficulties. The most need for those area in our people are for their daily food, and drinking water.
And in my Bible School, on Saturday night (23.9.2017) at 7:55 pm one of my students, who was studying for his second year was died. We sent his body to Chin State where his parents were living and the funeral service was done at 5:00 pm today. [26 September] Therefore, we really need your prayer for the recent situations that we are facing.
On behalf of we the ACCM I would like to say “Thank you” to all of you for your passion and love and care for us. May the Lord continue to bless you and give you more wisdom, strength and long-life.
Yours sincerely in Christ,
