In mid-October the shelter that Pastor Timothy and his congregation use for their gatherings and worship collapsed – fortunately, no one was injured by the sudden collapse.
He asked us to pray that the Lord would provide the funds to replace the structure with a more permanent one – constructed from steel framing and corrugated iron rather than bamboo and palm tree leaves. He estimated the cost to rebuild a new floor and a new roof at 2,781,800 Myanmar kyats (NZ$2,885, US$1,850).
He hoped to rebuild in December.
He gratefully advised recently that “God provided some materials for house and we are praying to start December first week.” Please continue to pray that the Lord will provide what is necessary to enable the project to be completed.
He asks us to also pray for two of the orphaned children he cares for are hoping to finish and graduate from their three-year course – B Th – in February.
Two others of his children are studying sewing courses and he asks us to pray for them in their final tests and exams too.
Christine (pictured below left) is doing her final level – Level 4, and Ngun Tha Pen, (below right) who is from the Advent Christian Church of Myanmar church in the Chin State, is studying Level 3.
Please thank the Lord for the happy smiles on these girls’ faces and on the pictures of more of Timothy’s orphan and underprivileged children that he cares for pictured below, and thank the Lord for the calling that all four leaders of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar have as they care for a total of more than 300 children.
