Asian christian mission - april - june news update 2014

  1. 1. 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.   !

  2. 2. 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.   ! Evangelizing  Non-­‐Christians   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.     Bro.

  3. 3. ! 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   Asia.   !
