Jonathan has been in Tamu, Myanmar the last few days. He is very excited about the opportunities to present GPHD for 3.5 hours to approximately 40 plus indigenous missionaries. Please pray for this conference and the missionaries/church leaders who attend. This is a Chin group of believers and they are primarily known for being very rigid traditionalists and tend to be opposed to any type of change.
The Chin, as a people group, stay in conflict with the neighboring Burmese villages because they are not Buddhists. Such conditions call for a radical proclamation of the gospel, both in word and lived out by believers. Pray that some of these barriers can be broken down by the power of God’s Word and the Holy Spirit. These brothers and sisters seem to want to go and reach the Burmese. This area of Myanmar is a melting pot of Nepalese and other ethnic groups here in Tamu and the surrounding areas of Saigaing Region that they have already planted churches.
As we pray for these believers in Tamu, we must remember for them and for ourselves the words of Jesus; “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation” (Mark 16:15). The responsibility falls on all of us, wherever we are and whatever resources we have, and God has given each of us what we need to obey His command – even fervent prayer!
