KIEC’s New Campus

After almost a decade of dreaming and praying. Then add into that a few years of looking at real estate properties, numerous meetings and seven months into our three-year KIEC fundraising campaign we now have a property for KIEC to be built on. As we looked at real estate options we had a list of important things we looking for hoped to find in a property: 1. We wanted to be centered in a Buddhist community. While we could have found properties in Christian areas of Kalay, we truly wanted a place where we could be a light and witness among those we desire to serve and share the gospel with. 2. We wanted a piece of land that was close to the center of the city and a large enough piece of land to allow us to grow. Not an easy task in one of Myanmar’s fastest growing cities.…

Pigeons and Fishpaste

Since our arrival in Yangon, our family has been blessed to attend two churches. One is a Chin church in the denomination which Sinte grew up in. Unfortunately, this church usually takes us around 2+ hours to get to and return (because of traffic), so we don’t go there every Sunday. We also found another church closer to our home called the Upper Room, which has both Burmese and English spoken during the worship. The Upper Room has blessed our family tremendously, but it also sticks out in my mind as our worship time there has some peculiarities. First, is the symbolic presence of the Holy Spirit. The Bible often mentions the presence of our Triune God symbolized as a dove. In this church, it finds it’s cousin with many pigeons flying around inside the building. A few weeks back, when I preached at the Upper Room, there was a…

What’s in the Kangaroo Boxes?

The question of ‘What’s in the kangaroo boxes?’ has been a question we’ve been asked and been asking ourselves quite a bit these past couple months. This past March, South Pacific School Aid, an organization in Adelaide, Australia came through for us yet again by donating and sending us two pallets of books (over 5,000+). We plan to distribute these books to schools, Bible schools, churches and seminaries throughout Myanmar (Burma). Getting these books through customs is not a fun experience. To be asked over and over again by the company’s agent to send them the same paperwork which we already sent them multiple times and being asked silly questions like: ‘Are we going to be selling half used stationary?’ is baffling. But we’re in Myanmar, so we have to play along. When we finally got ahold of the books we had only just a couple hours to scour through…

Report from Rakchat (May 2018)

On 23 April, my son, Saw Shalom (who just graduated high school) and I left for a trip to Happy Home.     We arrived at Happy Home after our bus, truck, boat and motorcycle ride. On 24 April, we had a meeting with the Happy Home leadership committee and discussed our plans for the upcoming year. First, we talked on the preparations for the rice planting this year. Last year was our largest harvest yet, which was able to sustain the children for six months and also feed all of workers (i.e, farm workers and Board master family). Still, like any farm we can’t lean on our success from the previous year.         The things needing to be done at the farm were the maintenance of our tractors, ensure the temporary workers were hired, and to make sure we reinforce and clean out the irrigation ditch…
