Ministry Update for October-November 2017
“Where exactly are you now?” a friend asked. Good question! It depends on requests from Baptist partners across the Asia-Pacific region, and how God leads. The last two months, God provided opportunities to follow up on several projects we mentioned in previous ministry updates.
Equipping young leaders
It was a privilege to offer an intensive English course to students at the Asho Chin Theological Seminary (ACTS) in Myanmar. Please pray for these young men and women who are preparing to serve the Lord in a Buddhist context.
"Thank you for coming,” remarked the young refugee leader. “We can’t leave, so we are grateful you could come to us.” Ann is on an International Ministries team working with Burmese refugee groups in Malaysia. The groups have started schools and community centers, since migrants are not allowed to send their children to public schools or to access most public benefit programs. The on-going challenge is to support the schools, keep kids safe, and deal with bigger questions of survival and resettlement.
Making God’s Word real
The increasing number of new Jesus followers in Asia means our partners must rethink their theological education (TE) methods. Ann is part of a TE network developing new, contextualised TE resources for people at various educational levels. News FLASH: videos for the pilot TE project in Cambodia are done - a bit behind schedule, but still moving forward!
