Myanmar (Burma) Southeast Asia: Over the weekend of January 30-31, 2016, the 32nd annual District Assembly was celebrated in Yangon, Myanmar (formerly Burma).
Officiated by Dr. David Graves (General Superintendent) the highlight of the assembly was the ordination of six new pastors!
It was compelling to hear the vision and see the passion of the leaders as they shared what has been happening in this once “closed” nation. Myanmar’s campus of Southeast Asia Nazarene Bible College (SEANBC) is growing, more new churches are being planted, and this year, there were (65 delegates to the assembly) a two-fold increase on the number from last year’s assembly!
Dr. Robin Seia, founder of the Church of the Nazarene in Myanmar, was in attendance at the assembly and was able to pray over the new ordinands along with Dr. Graves.
Great things are happening in Myanmar. Please continue to pray for the work of the church in Myanmar.
