“For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.” (Habbakuk 2:14)
Yes, God is compassionately and continuously saving people from every tribe, tongue, people group, and nation. In most parts of the world, the Gospel is spreading through the work of national believers who are uniquely positioned to deliver the good news in the context of their own culture and language.
But internationals still have a role to play (Matthew 28:19). Through partnerships, internationals can join with national believers in the work being done around the globe for the Kingdom.
Meet a National Partner
One of the national partners doing work for the Kingdom in Myanmar among his own people is Dr. Mung, founder and president of Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary.
Dr. Mung’s schools have graduated several thousand young adults, who are now also well-trained and equipped to bring the Gospel to their own people in Myanmar. The students pay some tuition, but it’s at a reduced rate so that finances are not a hindrance to anyone’s studies.
How to Best Serve
We asked Dr. Mung how his North American partners could best serve him and his ministry. Should they visit the school to encourage him and his staff in prayer, give money to the school for the general operation, or was there some other way? His answer was genuine and funny!
He said, “It’s best to come and encourage us through your fellowship and prayers… and also give money!”
Please continue to pray for Dr. Mung and the students and staff at FBBC&TS because only God can save souls through their work. Should God lead you to give money to this school as well, here are some items you could give toward:
- Dr. Mung wrote a new book in the Burmese language and he is praying for $3,000 in funds to cover the total cost of publishing.
- They need a new working 30KW generator at the seminary in Yangon. A brand new one costs $18,000. They experience frequent power cuts without prior notice and it can cause grave danger when using the elevator.
- Third, they need to put a new fence around the property of FBBC in Chin State. The estimated cost for this is $12,000.
