Teaching seminars in remote villages in Myanmar (Burma) bring new life and encouragement
Ecclesiastes 4:9 tells us that Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour. It was with this in mind that, two years ago, our office in New Zealand began a new partnership with a Christian ministry in Myanmar in order to increase our effectiveness in bringing Derek’s teaching to the Burmese people. Myanmar has a population of 55 million, of whom 87.9% is Buddhist: 87.9%. Only 6.2% are Christian. Our new “partner ministry” already has open doors into many of the remote villages in Myanmar, and this enables us to hold numerous teaching seminars using Derek’s material and gift many books to village leaders.
Look at this amazing feedback!
An Evangelist says:
We travelled along the Ayeyarwady River by Grace boat and stopped and visited villages to carry out our mission activities. We travelled three times annually and visited an estimated 30 villages - these are the underserved and disadvantaged communities in these remote areas. We shared the Gospel and during each trip, about 50 people came to the Lord (wow!). I follow-up by conducting discipleship training three times a year. One of my problems was giving out spiritual material, but I have now received Derek Prince’s books to give out. Each person was given five books to share in their church Bible study groups. They told me these books are very valuable to them. Thank you very much for sharing these books.
A Woman Leader said: I work as a leader in a Baptist church. Every Wednesday we have Bible study and also visit the sick. The great blessing for me was when I received the books from Derek Prince Ministries. I used the book Marriage Covenant and then Faith to Live By for Bible study and fellowship with my women’s group. It was a new inspiration for them. When we visited the sick, we shared the book on God’s Medicine Bottle with the patients as well as their family. We also leave the book for them. As I revisited the patients, they were encouraged and got better through reading that book.
A missionary couple from New Zealand recently made a visit to Myanmar to teach and encourage pastors, leaders and other believers at churches and in seminars. Given the great lack of Bible teaching in Myanmar, much of what they presented from Derek’s material had never before been heard by these people. Everywhere they went, people were hungry for the Word of God and everyone was highly ‘engaged’ as they received the teaching. Many pastors were given Derek’s books in Burmese, which will be a “life-line” to them. We are wanting to hold further training seminars for pastors and leaders throughout Myanmar and help local missionaries to build Christ’s church.
