Sewing and Sowing Gospel Seed: How God Is Working in Myanmar

We at Live Global marvel at our national partners’ faith and endurance as they serve diligently in circumstances it’s hard to imagine from North America. We love sharing how God is working in Myanmar through the stories of our partners.

Two years after the military coup changed the country of Myanmar, the challenges continue but Christians still pursue Gospel ministry in their communities and beyond. By His grace, God is still working in Myanmar. We at Live Global marvel at our national partners’ faith and endurance as they serve diligently in circumstances it’s hard to imagine from North America. We love sharing how God is working in Myanmar through the stories of our partners. God is the hero of their stories, but our national partners are the main character.

Making New Friends

Live Global partners Suan and Lyn are faithful messengers in Myanmar, sowing the Seed of the Gospel wherever they go. Last year they settled in new surroundings. (See previous update.) They started visiting the Danu villages in the area. They made many new friends as they distributed over 500 copies of “The Ancient Path.” This small booklet is a wonderful tool for opening hearts and presenting God’s message of salvation in Christ among the people groups of Asia.

Sewing School

Suan and Lyn have established a new branch of the Dorcas Sewing School in their new location. They welcomed ten girls to the sewing school who came from the villages in the regions around them. 

Lyn says, “We heard that a few from the Palaung Hills also want to come, if they do, we will welcome them. The ones from Yatsauk and Kalaw said they have never heard of Jesus even once. Every evening we have family devotions and share the Gospel with them. Please pray that God opens their minds and heart.

She shares the Gospel and Bible stories with them using a children’s Bible. By learning to sew, these young women may be protected from the scourge of human trafficking in Myanmar. More importantly, while learning to sew they will also learn what it means to believe in Jesus and to follow him.

Producing Fruit

Where the Gospel is sown in good soil, the Seed produces a wonderful harvest. One of the Dorcas Sewing Schools reported the conversion of four young women among their recent graduates. Three girls from the Hmong people and one from the Shan people testified of their faith in Christ. Praise God for His saving work!

It is a privilege to join arms in prayer for these ministries as we hear how God is working in Myanmar. May God prompt our readers to help provide financial support for God’s servants and the Gospel work that they are doing in Myanmar. Learn more about Suan and Lyn and pray about how God might be calling you to partner with them.

Bev

John and Bev have served in SE Asia for over 20 years. John's book The Ancient Path is widely used as a tool to overcome the objection that Christianity is a western religion. The ministry of The Ancient Path is directed to unreached people groups (UPGs)- groups with little or no scriptures in their mother tongue. Your gifts support the projects in evangelism and church planting of national believers with a passion to go to "those who have never heard". Romans 15:20-21
