Mandalay, Myanmar (Burma) We joined the Frontier Harvest team for the first week launch of Harvest Coffee House, a jamming new church in Mandalay. Sunday is worship and during the week they serve coffee, yummy fruit salads, homemade donuts, and sets of worship interspersed with gospel messages. The team had spread fliers all over the area so we had visitors every day. Some of the Burmese team members are planning to move their families to the area to carry on the work.
U Bein Bridge spans the Taungthaman Lake near Amarapura in Myanmar. The 1.2-kilometre (0.75 mi) bridge was built around 1850 and is the oldest and (once) longest teakwood bridge in the world. We visited the bridge on our ‘day off’.
After recovering from dysentery (Thank you, Uncle Chan’s restaurant) we went to Mindanao and had a Holy Ghost time in the Fernandez Dr. village church. The love, joy, and faith of the older, new pastors has resurrected the church after what some call a Gideon revival (Judges 7). Then we traveled back to Taytay, Rizal near Manila. Perfect timing to pray for Pastor Rino who had a heart attach the week before! One of the highlights of the trip was sharing with Pastor Noy and his youth church which started from a basketball outreach to high school kids.
- Please pray for the Myanmar Lashio Children’s home. It increased another 26 kids in the last 5 months. They come from the mountains where there is little food and no school because the government is fighting the rebels. The children walk an hour to get to school. The orphanage takes their lunch to them. They are safe and cared for, but they desperately need of a boys’ dorm.
- Our daughter, Faith, doing medical mission work in the middle east.
- Our next schedule to China and the Philippines in November to be clarified.
Thank You for Your Support! We are Co laborers in Christ.
