Here is a recent update and recommendation for Asian World Baptist Ministries from Pastor Tim Russ of Greater Vision Baptist Church, Owensboro, Kentucky. He and Bro. Dan Vincent were speakers for our Annual Pastors and Workers Conference in Bacolod City January 2016.
We have a container load of Burmese Bibles ready to ship to Thailand and the take into Burma. Please pray about helping with the $5,000 shipping charges for the container.
“The greatest missionary is the Bible in the mother tongue. It needs no furlough and is never considered a foreigner.” – William Cameron Townsend
This is an even more amazing statement after having heard from a Burmese pastor who is training other pastors that some of those churches have only one Bible in the entire church.
The 1st American Missionary, Adoniram Judson, finished the translation of a Burmese Bible in 1835. Burmese ranks 34th on the world’s most spoken languages.
I will be visiting Burma with fellow missionary Dr. Bob Bowen from March 19-26. We sure would appreciate your prayers. In case you are interested, you could buy a Burmese pastor a Bible for just $8.00. What’s that, just two Starbucks a week?
