ACM Update April – June 2014
Dear Christian friends,
In our last news update, we wrote to you about evangelistic eﬀort among the Jerwang people along
Burma -‐ China border area. We are happy to report to you that so far 53 Jerwang people in 8 villages
have accepted the Lord. Our evangelists continue to live and work among them to win more Jerwang
people to Christ. Please pray with us for more victory. We are very grateful to Wallula Christian
Church for generously supporting two evangelists for this eﬀort. We still need to raise monthly salary
support ($200 each) to cover 6 more evangelists, $700 for a motorcycle and $800 for 2 reliable cameras.
The Lord willing I plan to go there in October to conduct a Bible seminar. It is a diﬃcult trip, so please
pray that my health will permit me to return to them.

Teaching Trip to Malaysia
Last month, the refugee community in Kuala
Lumpur, Malaysia invited Brother Jerry
Thaprom and me to come teach them. The
community is composed of over two thousand
refugees from Burma. They work low level,
menial jobs while they wait to be processed
and are given passage to another country.
Some have been in these communities for
many years and are at risk for human
traﬃcking rings that prey on the poor and
vulnerable. They come from a variety of faith
backgrounds and requested clear teaching
from the Scriptures. We were there for a week
from June 10-‐16th. Bro. Jerry focused his
instruction on cults and the occult. I taught
simple Christian evidences and the work of elders and deacons. We took turns preaching during
evening and Sunday services. We thank the Lord for this opportunity to strengthen their faith and
teach them the Word.
New School Year At LBI
We changed the school year at the Lisu Bible Institute. It usually starts in June, but from now the ﬁrst
semester starts the ﬁrst week of August. Please pray that the Lord will send those whom He will be
able to use to further His kingdom. We have a huge responsibility to teach the Lisu what it means to
be a real Christian. Many are turning to Christianity simply as a protection against the evil spirits. We
need to take them to a deeper level of understanding and belief. Brother Joel Khopang will continue to
serve as president of LBI. He has been a blessing to this ministry.
During two months of recess, Bro. Tufusa, Dean of Students, took some recent graduates to evangelise
the Lisu people along Thailand-‐Burma border area. He reported that there are thousands of
unreached Lisu people there. They evangelised in 42 villages, 68 people accepted Christ and were
baptised into Him. We need to send pastors to those villages to evangelise non-‐Christians and
minister to the Christians.

Along with the new work with the Jerwang, I am going to concentrate on writing Bible
commentaries which the Lisu Christians everywhere have been asking of me for many years.
Please pray I will have the clarity of thought and discipline necessary for this task and that I
will be able to diﬀerentiate between men's opinions and what God actually says in His Word.
We should like to ask those of you who would like to continue receiving our news update to
please give us your email address. It will save us time and postages.
Thank you so much for your faithful support and prayers on behalf of this ministry. I am
increasingly aware of all the work that remains to be done to bring the lost to a saving
knowledge of our Lord. Your partnership is invaluable and greatly appreciated. You may never
go to those remote areas to preach or teach but we will. Please help us to go there to take the
Good News of Lord Jesus Christ.
As we informed you, the Lord willing I plan to come to the United States to visit supporting
churches and to enlist new supporters for the work in Asia. Please let our forwarding agent
know should you be interested to meet me when I come to U.S. next April 2015. Hope and
pray that there will be some new supporters which we sorely need to further the Gospel in
Yours together in His service,
