Greetings to you in our covenant Lord’s name. I hope and pray that you all are doing well in this late Summer time, here is raining season continues, still too much rain this year.
Politic, our leader Lady Aung Sun Su Kyi will be in America when this letter will be read by you all. Now, it seems we have two governments at the same time for that strange constitution of 2008. People elected the Lady’s party to rule, but according to that constitution army has the power to enforce laws, so at the surface elected government is ruling, in actuality army have the say. So, our present government has to maneuver things very wisely and very slowly, I believed sometime very painfully as well, because if they move any wrong step, the army is ready to coup and former bad leaders are always waiting to catch the chance. We pray that the Lord will ruled over everything so that, His covenant people will flourish here as well.
The result of that conflict of two groups is business stand still, could not go forward. Previous government, drug cartels flourished and control all business, and government leaders are their pay-rolls, especially army leaders and police leaders. And they make businesses are running smooth with their black-money. Now, the government crack down those drug-businesses, so every thing stand-still, and funny thing is the government never catches the drug-lords, because army and police are their side, so only minor leaders are catch. So, normal people already rare jobs are more rarer now.
The negotiation with so-called rebel groups also continue and end of the month of August, 2016, will be final meetings, How the Lord will show us His sovereign eternal counsel, we are eager to see. When that acutually happen, I will report you for sure.
And I would like to report you that Mark Hoeksema asked me to write an article about PRCM, so I did, I modified the letter about myself to you a bit and send it to you. He told me that he will put it on Beacon Light magazine.
I am very busy, editing my KJV Burmese translation, I reached editing to the book of First Corinthians and I preached every week from out of that editing. And I finished translating the book of Numbers, now starting the book of Deuteronomy, reached to chapter 2. Evening services Heidelberg Catechism, this is the six time I preach, now I reach LD 40.
Every Thursday, we resumed Bible classes, we discussed now, Essentials of Reformed Doctrine. I go slowly, and based on the book that I received from Rev. Kortering many years ago, it has extensive explanation, like Hoeksema’s Dogmatic. So, we discuss a lot from that explanation.
And every week put out Sunday Digest, I am still translating “For They Truth’s Sake” by Prof. Hanko, now I reached to “The Covenant in God,” very interesting subjects are a head, my people enjoyed reading it. And I reached “Come, Ye Children,” by Gertrude Hoeksema, ” God Gives Water from the Rock.” I am teaching young ones of our church PR catechism books. Younger one NT story by Rev. G. Vanden Berg, Older youth, this month I start to translate “Essentials of Reformed Doctrine, A Guide in Catechetical Instruction by Rev. Herman Hoeksema, revised by Prof. Herman Hanko,” we reached Lesson (14).
Thank you very much for supporting my ministry till today, without your help I cannot do all the things that I do for His people. Please, continues to pray for us, so that the name of the Lord will be glorified here in this land. I and my family also pray always for you.
The Lord’s blessings to you all.
