Ecclesiastes 4:9 tells us that Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labour. It was with this in mind that, two years ago, our office in New Zealand began a new partnership with a Christian ministry in Myanmar in order to increase our effectiveness in bringing Derek’s teaching to the Burmese people. This “partner ministry” already has open doors into many of the remote villages in Myanmar, and this enables us to hold numerous teaching seminars using Derek’s material and gift many books to village leaders.
I work as a leader in a Baptist church. Every Wednesday we have Bible study and also visit the sick. The great blessing for me was when I received the books from Derek Prince Ministries. I used the book Marriage Covenant and then Faith to Live By for Bible study and fellowship with my women’s group. It was a new inspiration for them. When we visited the sick, we shared the book on God’s Medicine Bottle with the patients as well as their family. We also leave the book for them. As I revisited the patients, they were encouraged and got better through reading that book.
- A Woman Leader
A missionary couple from New Zealand recently made a visit to Myanmar to teach and encourage pastors, leaders and other believers at churches and in seminars. Given the great lack of Bible teaching in Myanmar, much of what they presented from Derek’s material had never before been heard by these people. Everywhere they went, people were hungry for the Word of God and everyone was highly ‘engaged’ as they received the teaching. Many pastors were given Derek’s books in Burmese, which will be a “life-line” to them.
now need your help again, please.
We are wanting to hold further training seminars for pastors and leaders throughout Myanmar and help local missionaries to build Christ’s church. It costs us NZ$1,300 to hold each seminar, and our desire is to hold 10 in the year ahead. Would you perhaps be able to fund 50% or even the full cost of one teaching seminar this year?
In addition, we have Burmese staff support costs to meet each month. So please prayerfully consider if you could help us and to what extent, so we can help disciple the Body of Christ in Myanmar.
Your gift is genuinely needed and very much appreciated.
