Our ministry partner in Myanmar is constantly on the move – alert, awake and bringing awareness to the lost. The pastors sacrifice their lives and their time for His Kingdom and for the task of winning lost souls. They have answered the call in Isaiah 6:8 – “Whom shall I send? And who will go?” They are sharing everywhere they go.
Christmas is one of the special times when people are interested in knowing what the celebrations are all about and “Pastor Benjamin” and his team take every advantage of this opportunity to share. One of the key verses they share with Buddhists who are seeking is, Isaiah 9:6 “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given and he will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Every lasting father.” The ministry supplied meals to all people which encouraged many poor people to come and hear the message. Their philosophy is that Christ came for all people therefore Christmas is for all people. God gave His son freely and they share their gifts of food, love and the Gospel freely to all who seek to hear.
One of the tools that is most effective for evangelism is tracts and small booklets. These are easy to hand off to people and they can take them home and read them and know where to go for further discussion. In a country where Christianity is closely monitored, this is very effective. Throughout the month of December the ministry distributed, free of charge, literature called “The Three Kings”. They are always seeking new materials to translate into Burmese and have been blessed to have received several very effective pieces. If you have a tract or small booklet that you feel might be helpful to the ministry, please forward that information to us at email@example.com. We are also seeking funds to do reprints of several of the publications that ministry currently employs and many other pastors are in need of these materials.
Please continue to pray for the seeds that were planted during the Christmas season. There were several baptisms shortly after Christmas, but we are praying for more Buddhists to come to know the Lord Jesus Christ as their savior.
