Mission Nugget - The Work of a Pastor’s Wife in
Burma( ) Today Myanmar
“I thank God for the opportunities I enjoy in serving and encouraging my community to spread the gospel with my husband. In our village 193 people have become Christians and we have planted four new churches in our area. I thank God for giving me knowledge to make traditional medicine that is prepared from the oil of natural herbal plants. The medicine from these plants is good for health and gives strength and energy. We are able to share these plants with poor people who need this tonic. We are able to sell this medicine and have provided money to earn our living and so we can spread the gospel to nonbelievers. I enjoy and thank God for these opportunities to participate in pastor’s wife training. All the lessons are valuable and important for my life and ministry. I thank everyone who continues to arrange these programs and also for the teachers who teach us”. ~By Daw Hla Kyi,

Leader: The deeds and words of “The 70” were translated into the call for people to Be Transformed!
All: Today IM efforts worldwide convey that same message as evangelistic services are held, new churches are planted, children and adults learn to read the Bible and those who never heard of Jesus choose to become his followers.
Leader: The Scriptures come to life in the work supported by our World
