This is a continuation of the report from Jonathan and his experiences in Myanmar.
Taunggyi, Shan State – The second week of my trip I had one of the largest opportunities for the gospel that I have ever experienced. I was invited to come and work with a band of 12 indigenous missionaries who are going out to plant churches in Shan State among unreached villages.
Located on the border of China, Shan State has always been a source of conflict in Myanmar due to its preservation of culture and Buddhism. It also is one of the largest unreached areas in Myanmar. This group of missionaries has decided to go to unreached villages and fulfill the call of the Great Commission.
We spent one week going through God’s Plan for His Disciples, learning what it looks like to be personally established in the gospel so we are able to teach others how to be established in the gospel. And then we started God’s Plan for His Church, and our prayer is that God will use His Plan in the missionary’s lives as they put into practice what they have learned.
Please pray that God would establish these brothers and give them a sincere hunger to do things God’s Way and RETURN to the Scriptures in the power of the Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Also, that they would value the Gospel as the “conclusion” and the “help” to reach those that have never heard of Jesus (Acts 16:9-10).
We have a three-week training starting the end of June in Yangon. Putting all these events together and seeing how God is working, causes us to believe that He is preparing indigenous disciples to reach those who have never heard the gospel, not just in Myanmar, but beyond their borders. Please let us know if you are standing with us in prayer (use the Contact Page).
