Mon State, Myanmar, Southeast Asia Field:  Less than 4% of the population of Myanmar (Burma)  is considered Christian.   Major dominant religions of this area of the world have been in place for centuries.  But God is moving…and He is moving through local Christ followers / Nazarenes, who have a heart and passion to be the hands and feet of Christ.

MyanmarBurmese Nazarenes began reaching out to those living in Mon state in 2006.  After 8 years of planting seeds, the harvest is beginning to take hold as there are now four organized churches and four more home churches in this area.

One of these Burmese Nazarenes answering the call to take the Gospel where it has not yet been is  Pastora Ruth.  Every Saturday Ruth travels to Ywar Tan Shey, a village in Mon State where she reaches out to more than 30 children in the area by providing Bible lessons, games for children, and various activities.

Another devoted Christian who goes to Emmanuel Church of the Nazarene had a burden for the children in her community.  She prayed and shared her burden with her pastor.   Stepping out in faith without any outside funding, they established another home children’s ministry.  A place for nurturing the future of God’s church in this area.

God is blessing their homes and ministry.  I am reminded of the story of Jesus feeding the 5,000, with just five loaves of bread and two fish (Matthew 14:13-21). In Mon State, Jesus asked the local church members what they had.  They gave what they had and God is surely blessing and multiplying.”

Would you please join us in prayer for these children’s ministries in Myanmar?  Pray for God’s anointing power to:

  1. Transform the lives of children in Mon State;
  2. Protect local workers in this area;
  3. Provide Godly partnerships that can multiply this ministry in the years to come.

If you are in the United States and would like a first-hand opportunity to hear of the exciting ways in which God is working in this Southeast Asia nation,  please contact us below to schedule Dr. Kwon for a visit with your church or ministry group.

Dr. Kwon will be in the United States from June 15th to July 30th, 2015.
