We, the staff and believers of the Church of God of Prophecy in Myanmar, hope and pray that everything is going well with you and your family. We thank God for His faithful guidance from the beginning of our ministry even to now. We deeply honor and greatly appreciate your love and mission mindedness towards our nation during these days of end-time ministry.

It’s my honor to give you a brief report and update of the ministry in Myanmar. We praise God for the wonderful things the Lord has done through the ministry of Church of God of Prophecy within our nation. We praise God for the mission college which He has helped us to establish, the Church planting ministry which is growing, and for the Children Homes—which we started 10 years ago with our Carmel Children’s Home. We truly give God all the praise and thank Him for how He has flourished the ministry in Myanmar.

The past 10 years journey has not always been easy and smooth, but we have experienced the true meaning of His Divine Presence all along this journey. We still remember that it has been a great step of faith in a great God, Who has kept His hand over us all the way.

His Word teaches us to, “Be still, and know that I am God! I will be honored by every nation. I will be honored throughout the world” Psalm 46:10 NLT.

Recently, we were invited to lead and teach at a three-days’ seminar at Lashio, Northern Shan State, in the upper area of our nation. More than 50 people gave their lives to serve the Lord during this seminar. We are truly grateful for God’s guidance to help us in this area. We sincerely desire your prayers as this ministry in the northern area progresses, and we continue to seek and honor Him in all that we do to promote His Kingdom.

These are a few of the photos depicting some of our services and also ministry to our children and youth. People in Myanmar are sincerely seeking God to fill their lives with His Presence. Please stand in prayers with us as we continue to reach out and penetrate the cities of Myanmar with the Gospel of Christ.

Please allow us to share our prayer requests with you that the Lord will provide building funds to complete both of these churches. Two years ago, God spoke to our hearts through this Scripture in Haggai.1:7-8, “Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways. Go up to the mountain, and bring wood, and build the house; and I will take pleasure in it, and I will be glorified, saith the LORD.” Because of this conviction we sold our livestock, some of our rice fields, and began these church buildings through those funds. But the costs of materials has been great and our funds were not enough to complete these buildings, so we rely on God to provide.

The above photo reflects the construction underway for our Bethlehem Mission Church, where Pastor Zar Pey, presides as our pastor. Approximately $4,100 would help us to complete this structure so that they could have their own worship facility.

We constantly pray and believe that God will open the right doors to meet the funding needed to complete the two buildings. We are soon beginning to enter the rainy season, and it will be time to start working in the rice farms. Our Pastors Zar Pey and Aung Mee have asked us to please pray that work can be completed on these church buildings before we have to begin working in our rice farms.

We sincerely submit these projects in the fear of God, through the approval of our General Presbyter, and with a real sense of implementing the 2020 Vision in Myanmar. Thank you very much for your great concern and partnership with the ministry of our nation. We deeply appreciate and greatly honor each of you for your continued prayers and financial support for these beautiful babies of God.

Prayer Requests

  1. Please pray for our Mission College, it will be reopening June 1, 2015. We need two rented houses—one to accommodate the boys’ hostel and the other for girls’. These two houses will cost around $500/month. This is a big issue for us, because we have been running the College only by faith.
  2. Please continue to pray for Bethlehem and Taungmann Mission Churches’ constructions. We have exhausted all the funds we had to invest for both of these constructions.
  3. Please remember in your prayers that all the children in our orphanages will be admitted by the government to school for this term.
  4. Please pray for 4 of our house churches which are badly in need for their own church buildings,
    because the government does not allow continuing to worship in dwelling houses.
  5. Please continue to pray for all those who turned to Lord during our April Youth Camp. As soon as they took water baptism, they were immediately expelled from their families. We now have a big responsibility to look after them and help provide their daily needs.
