Pastor K, who is presently President of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar, has recently written to ask us to rejoice with him and his family and his co-workers, as a graduation ceremony was held on 5 March for three graduands of Gospel for Myanmar’s Bible College - Salem Theological School – who had successfully completed the Bachelor of Ministry course.
Please pray for these three young men as they now go to various parts of the country, as God has called them, to share the Gospel with their fellow citizens. Pray especially that the Lord will meet their daily, practical needs, that He will keep them safe and give them great joy in service for Him.
This graduation ceremony was a particular blessing for Pastor Kenneth and his wife Eunice, as one of the graduates was a young man who is, as he wrote, “one of our children” – one of the orphan children who he and his family have cared for and raised since soon after Cyclone Nargis struck the Irrawaddy Delta in the south of Myanmar in May 2008.
Later in the month, Pastor K wrote as follows…
“Greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you are doing well. We the ACCM and we the Gospel for Myanmar Mission also doing well.
This is our prayer request for our Church. Since March the whole country facing difficulty concerning about electricity. Now our electricity is rotation system. This morning our Sunday morning worship service also doing without electricity. Therefore, please remember us in your prayers. We really need to be able to have generator for our worship service. Thank you very much for your love and prayers.”
Please pray for this need, which will probably be applying to all of the ministries of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar (ACCM) members as they are all based in Yangon (formerly Rangoon), and in fact to all the residents of the city – about 7.4 million. As a matter of interest, the city was founded around 1028 to 1043!
Pastor Kenneth also sent the following picture with the notation…
“Our ladies are having Women's Bible training today. This training will be until tomorrow.”
Please pray for Pastor Kenneth and his family, and all the ministries and workers of Gospel for Myanmar, including its church planters and their families, those who teach in the Bible College, and the sixty orphan/underprivileged children who they care for in various parts of the country.
