1. How Many Lands of the World Have You Trodden Down?
Every place that the sole of your FOOT shall tread upon, that have I given unto you” [Joshua 1:3]. How many lands of the earth have you, your nationals, your people group and at least your Church already trodden down doing world missions of our Lord Jesus Christ? See Roams 10:15 “How beautiful are the FEET of them that PREACH the GOSPEL of Peace!“. Tread upon every land of the earth by you and your national group. Right?
2. Changing World: Technology or God?
You may think, the world is changing by modern technological revolution. NEVER! God only is Creator and Changer of the world and EVERYTHING, not the human technology: see John 1:3 “Without him [God] was not any thing made that was made.
Before the scientific revolution in the period between 1543-1600 AD, the world missions have mostly done and rooted in the Europe in the period between AD 30 to till the Protestant Reformation by Martin Luther [1517-1648], that Europe is the center of world science and machinery revolution since the Gospel of Jesus Christ was preached by Apostle Paul since the first century A.D. You can check it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_of_Christian_missions
Egypt was more modernized since B.C 1700s but it was only AFTER the believer family of God settled in Egypt, who were Joseph and his parent, Jacob [see Gen. 39-50] and Moses – a chosen man of God [Exod. 1&2].
Why USA and English people were more blessed, more honored and known by the whole world in every sector [English language, Power, technologies, etc] as world leader or world guider are because they have led world Christ’s missions worldwide than any other peoples and nations on earth. They have killed and died for Christ doing world missions of Jesus Christ more than any other people groups and nations of the world. Till today, the most missionaries leading world Christian mission by numbers are USA first [over 40,000]; UK [over 13,000], Germany [over 7,000] and even South Korea [over 22,000!].
3. Choice and World Competition: The First or The Last?
What God promised to those who [nationals, people group and nations, at least Church] served Him: “For them that honour me I will honour” [1 Sam. 2:30]. “But MANY that are FIRST shall be the LAST; and the LAST shall be the FIRST” [Matt.19:30].
Do your people group [national or nation] need to be the FIRST Forever before all nations? The choice is ours! Be the missionary people group of God who is King of kings and Lord of lords so your people group [national or nation] will be leader of world leaders in every areas of the world such as military, economy, politics, social, etc and in all.

Please extend your blessed mission also to my poorest people land, Rengcaa land. Thank you very much.

 

In His services.

If Jesus Christ may come back as the first incarnation, I see:

1. In Israel, Jesus Christ will be killed again because Jews will not see Him as their political powerful Messiah.

2. Among Pentecostal and Charismatic churches, they will firstly welcome Him as their only One Master but later they [may not be all] will see Him as their Satan after Jesus Christ encouraged them not to emphasize more on many miracles, casting of demons and healing business EXCEPT His WORD – “It is written again, thou salt not tempt the Lord thy God.” [Matt.4:7].

3. Among other Evangelical churches: they [may not be all] will ran away one after one from following Him because they will said, no more FREEDOM of theirs because of Him and because of His judging teachings: “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth” [Rev. 3:16]

4. Among other Old Testament and Church doctrines-based churches, they [may not be all] will said let us test and check Him for many years or some limited years with our own Bible beliefs for whether He is real Bible beliefs-keeper of ours and they will against Him sooner or later after Jesus Christ said to them: “But woe unto you,… hypocrites! For ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against me: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in” [Matt.23:13]. “The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few.” [Matt.9:37]. And after Jesus Christ asked them; how many lost souls [sheaves] have you brought for me as a real witness of Me? [Ps.126:6].

5. Among nominal Christians, they will gladly follow Him first for free food from Him and for some chances they may get from, etc but they ALL will ran away after Jesus said: “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his CROSS, and follow me.” [Mark 8:34].

6. Among Roman Catholics and Orthodox churches, they will said, Jesus Christ MUST be under our Church authorities. If not, they will recognize Him too as a Protestant [who against them].

7. Among Non-Christians, as today, they will see Him as not total concerned with them.

During Flood of Noe Age, only 8 persons were saved from among the million of the then world population. Jesus Christ said, “But as in the days of Noe were, so shall also be the coming of the Son of man be.” [Matt. 24:37]. Today world population is over 7 billion. I hope, only 8% of billion of world population will be saved or entered into Heaven.

May I explain you concerning how my unpaid long-term volunteer missionary family for over 29 years [for 2017] could deadly survive day by day till today.The ways my family gains some income are mainly through book translations. For others either, I sometimes translate some books and papers into Burmese from English and into English from Burmese with payment, etc. But this job is not regularly, conditionally. Tithes from my small Church in Yangon is equivalent to just only around the US $ 150 for one year. Most of our budgets are not by the currency and we just only valued as the currency upon the donated resources such as clothes, books, local products, chickens, and mostly foods – donated by the peoples of God from far and near and some are donated even by the Buddhists to whom I ever supported some little items for their families and to whom I taught the English languages for their children, etc. The Buddhist families respected me as their teacher and so they gave me some needs when my family suffered in needs. They indirectly support me when they do not want to see the saints are suffering. Some Buddhist families who gave some helps are the families whose children also are attending my weekly Sunday School teaching class and who yearly participated in our Church festivals – such as Christmas and New Year, etc. Giving money is very less and mostly is giving the items as I told above. Sometimes, God’s grace is wonderfully come to my suffering missionary family by these unexpected ways! – “ALL THINGS work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose” [Romans 8:28].

If I worked only for a business without committing in the Lord’s service since 1990 – in the year I have finished my State High School, I have now been a Great business BOSS! But… I love the Lord who gave me His eternal life than all other things in the world. However, it is I thought that the Christian  brotherhood in the world should help and support one another for world unreached mission movement – as His brethren in His ONE Body so that the Great Commission commanded by God Himself will be more successful than people-based making riches. Elijah who also was jobless like me and was thought only for the work of the Lord was fed even by ravens -the animal and a widow [1 Kgs. 17:4-16]! There are many ravens in your Christian countries, but in Myanmar, even the ravens also are very scarce!

A monthly expenses of my family is $400. But actually, my family income is just around $100. My family need $400 for my monthly expenses. In these general expenses, transportation, medical care, children snack and some love gifts for the Sunday School children are altogether included. This expense is estimated as of the 1350 Kyats for one U.S dollar exchange rate of the current time.

This amount of monthly expenses of my family is calculated in GENERAL, and mostly is down. When I generally earned of the equivalent of $120 for one month, the monthly expenses of my family are over $350. May I request you to compare it with other pastors in the world. In these expenses, other items such as clothes, tea and coffee drinks, transportation such as mission outreach outside Yangon and to other mission field, etc, meals for some guests [that we cannot know exactly in numbers] and official expenses are not included. This expense is more perfectly estimated in less. If to serve the Lord conveniently, as a President family of the New Covenant Fellowship of Myanmar [NCFM] and of Non-Denominational Myanmar Mission [NDMM], my family’s monthly expenses [or salary] should be more than this current expenditure. When my family does the ministries in Myanmar with poverty in the very care of expenditure or frugality, my family is mentally and physically and then even to spiritually very discouraged and it makes me lessen our energies to be more a successful ministry. As I sent to you a report of my 100% unpaid long term volunteer missionary even for over 21 years [1990 – 2011], my mission was not successful fully as I wanted and envisioned. I am very sorry for it and also for lack of money I had. If we might be adopted and supported by some richer Christian organizations and Churches or even one blessed business boss man, I dare say, my unreached mission in Myanmar will be over 10 times successful than this current statistic [1990 -2011]. I do praise the Lord for God who give me such kind of the wonderful Christian Brothers and Sisters. To God be the glory forever more!

Indeed, I am so sorry even to tell you about our difficulties. The main is house rental [or to have one home] for the services of Jesus Christ. Yearly renting houses from places to places [till today] for worship services and for office work is only by myself. Actually, my family is so afraid concerning how to resolve this absolute difficulty. In every time of my life basis: eating, siting, bathing and in every going and sleeping etc, this next house rental is a great thought and it makes me very serious. Sometimes, moral is down. But when I looked back, I knew and remembered how God fed and took care of my missionary family like the Israelite people in the Exodus and always and once again and again, my family is refreshed and encouraged to survive for the Lord – especially among the Buddhists who always look the Christians for whether the Christians are blessed or not by God who is a giver of life and of prosperity on earth, etc. Indeed, to live among the Buddhists with poverty really hinder us to penetrate to them with the Gospel messages.

Sometimes, I would like to go away where there is no any communities so that we can forget such of the environmental limits. Please continue help my family for the sake of the spreading of the WORD of God here in a strong Buddhist land. I do request you to remember my suffering family in your thoughts and your prayers. God bless you and your godly family more powerfully and more abundantly. I believe, God will not forsake my family till my family is faithfully serving and working for HIM alone. However, I need your prayer support and any kind of help – if possible. I am always ready to go and do God’s ministry in the difficult areas in Myanmar on behalf of you – where you cannot go for Christ. One drop of rain in a wilderness is more worthy than much rains in the raining lands.

I am now working a part-time works at some markets for my family income. But it cannot fulfill my family’s living. Job is very scarce [limited] especially for the Christians in Myanmar. Actually, I do not want to work outside, but survival of my family is essential and no choice. Although I should give all of my times and life to the ministry [outside work out of home takes away more of my ministry works], but I had no choice. If my family is with regular salary like other Christian leaders in Myanmar, how much I can serve much more for the LORD with all my beings and with all my heat and strengths! I do not get any regular foreign support. I need other family support so that my family can fully commit in the Lord’s services.

Because of being a poor Christian pastor, the difficulties and obstacles also are automatically follow inwardly and outwardly from both Myanmar inland.

We the believers in Myanmar are as walking between many tigers. In Myanmar, Muslims can rule some main areas of sections such as business and social because of their wealth. However for the poorest  believers in Myanmar, no place, no chance and no power. Please pardon for the believers in Myanmar who are the least. We have a burning fire for our visions. We had the practical strategies and methods. But we have nothing makes us weak and blind to walk for our visions.

Let me share how my family saved the love-offerings for the LORD: Last times, if my family had five times of tea/coffee and breads and two times of meat curry during a week, but for 2013, we reduced half [50%] from our expenses so that half reduced money may be remained or saved for the mission funds in our Mission Relief Box [MRB] we kept. Besides, the expenses, which remained because of that for we could not take some Breakfasts and Dinners because of our Fasting and Prayers etc, in accordance with its equivalent values of the expenditures, also were saved in currency and put in our Mission Relief Box [Quaker Quick Cooking Oatmeal empty-Box]. Shopping and buying of not important things such as clothes, goods, etc also were reduced [or cancelled] to save our expenses to save our suffering fellow brothers and sisters. The 99% of goods in my family are second hand clothes and cheaper things FOR THE LORD, but very beautiful! My family has no more clothes. For me is just only 10 clothes in total, enough. Please help pray for my family. Thank you very much.

God bless you for understanding my difficult missionary life.

According to the 2012 Report of Asia Development Bank [ADB], the poverty in Myanmar are the 25.6% of the 60 millions of the Myanmar population; of these, the poorest State in Myanmar is Chin State, even 73.3% and of these poorest population in Chin State, my Rengcaa ethnic people who live in Paletwa township [Southern Chin State] and the Northern Rakhine State is the poorest and the worst, even under poverty – even 70%.

Please have the first priority to help pray and support in any thing God intend you to do for my Rengcaa people who are the forgotten ethnic group in Myanmar.
