Pastor K, the president of the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar and the leader of Gospel for Myanmar has had cause to thank the Lord as his church and one of its church outreaches had the joy of witnessing new converts coming to faith in Jesus Christ and being willing to publicly acknowledge their new-found faith in the waters of baptism. (Full names withheld for security – the Lord knows them well!)
At their home church in Yangon, Pastor K conducted a “Salvation Camp” from 11 to 17 April…
On Easter Sunday morning he had the joy of baptising two of those who attended who had accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
Please pray for these two young brothers as they begin their walk with Jesus as Saviour and Lord, asking that they may grow in grace and in the knowledge of Him
Later in April Pastor K forwarded pictures of one of their outreach churches - in a village (Ph…) in the Irrawaddy Division which is to the west of Yangon. The Pastor in this village is Pastor K S – please pray for him and the members of his group.
In April he also sent pictures from their outreach church in O village, which is about two hours bus ride away from Yangon City in the Yangon Division. Pastor H T, the pastor of that church had had the joy of baptising six young people from his congregation – please pray for Pastor H T and the members of his group. Please pray for these young people too, asking that they may grow in grace and the knowledge of Jesus Christ their Saviour.
Then on Sunday 8 May - Mothers’ Day - he sent a picture of the mothers of his church in Yangon, where they were honoured and given a gift each and specially prayed for.
Please pray for Pastor K and his team and their outreach church plants, asking that the Lord will keep them safe from Covid and the activities of the military government, and will meet their practical needs – they care for a total of 60 orphan children.
Pastor T, leader of the Advent Christian Church of Myanmar, wrote to tell us that his wife, H, had had the Omicron Covid virus in late March and was unwell as they celebrated her birthday.
He also wrote …
“March is wonderful month for my family. 7 children were born in March so we celebrated their birthdays some days ago. So including H, 8 persons’ birthday in March.”
The seven children he refers to are seven of the approximately thirty orphan children that he and his wife care for at their home. They are pictured below.
He also advised that they are looking to build a structure for cooking and dining and are looking to the Lord to provide for that.
The site for the new cooking/dining area
He wrote early in May to say that he and his wife had visited one of their “outreach mission fields” earlier in the month – in a rural area about 45 miles from Yangon
He also mentioned, as have other leaders, that the supply of electricity has become very difficult and spasmodic - he wrote…
“My family is cooking food by wood because military coup cannot supply electricity well. We are getting it only a few hours a day and it also not normal. I am praying for gas system soon. “
He also wrote…
“Please pray for our orphan children’s education costs. They will start their classes soon (25 May). They need school bags, umbrellas, uniforms, books... so the cost is big.”
Please pray for Pastor T and his team and their outreach church plants, asking that the Lord will keep them safe from Covid and the activities of the military government, and will meet their practical needs – they care for a total of 77 orphan children.
