Greetings in our sovereign and gracious covenant Lord’s name. I pray that you all will be in good health
and peace of the mind for His mercy.
The Month of March was quite special for us, because the first time we are going to have a seminar
without one of you come over and teach.
So, preparing for that, I stop writing Sunday Digest, and translating of KJV, Thursday Bible classes. But I
continued to edit the KLV Burmese, reach, chapter 14. Preaching Heidelberg Catechism, Lord’s Day (20).
At, seminar, as many as 38 people all over the country and from various denomination came. Two weeks
seemed to be a very short time.
The men learned a lot in these short two weeks. Especially, the second subject, which is called
“Reformed Man.” In that subject, I compared the present day so-called Christians viewing their family, wife,
children, work, money, modern things, and what the Bible taught us, especially reformed view. They all are very
much surprised and started to say, we Burmese Christian never views in those ways. E. g., seeing our wives as
our sisters in that Lord, when we get to heaven, we will not be husband and wife rather brother and sister in His
covenant family, the same with our children, they are actually created by God Himself through parents, so the
real owner is our Covenant God, not the parents, in this area also, when we get to heaven, we will not be
parents and children, rather we all will be brothers and sisters in His Big covenant family.
So, take care of them is covenant duty, so working for the family is not secular thing for the reformed
man but sacred thing, doing covenant duty for His glory, in other word, serving Him. In our Burmese cultural
setting, doing religious means sacred thing, so have to forsake all earthly bounds and ties. The result is, feeding
the children, working to earn a living to raise family is secular. But, I taught reverse with this popular view and
set forth our covenant view.
To love our wives in our duty not a shy-thing, we love our wives because the Bible demands it. I point
out the texts, Let the husband render unto the wife due benevolence: and likewise also the wife unto the
husband. (1 Corinthians 7:3 KJV) Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving honour
unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life; that your prayers be
not hindered. (1 Peter 3:7 KJV) and many others to show, the relationship between believing husband and wife
is the picture of God’s covenant of grace in Jesus Christ for His elect Church. They all love that very much, and
they expressed they will not be the same when they return home.
All these things, I can teach only because you invited me and my wife to live among you and learned
about your way of reformed livings, during three weeks, I opened my eyes as wide as I can to learn how you live
as reformed people, now I can teach that experiences to my people, thank you for that. And actually the success
of this seminar is the fruit of your labors.
Morning, Belgic Confession, I explained all the words are written in blood of reformed believers, so that
we must study with respect. And, to call reformed must have confession, without confession, cannot be called
Weather is extremely hot, last year, only the month of May, hot as now, this year is special, but for His
mercy, we did not fell sick during the seminar.
And, after the seminar, Rakhine state churches demanded me to pay official visit, as well as, Nagah Land
also asked me to come over to their place. I promised them, if the Lord wills, I will come, at least two weeks and
teach in their places.
We are so much thankful for all the face-time and whatsapp videos calls during all the two week
seminar, every morning, that gave us real encouragement.
Thank you very much for supporting my ministry, without your help I cannot do all the things that I do
for His people. Please, continues to pray for us, so that the reformed truth that we hold dear as PR churches will
be through out generations. In my congregational prayer, I continue to pray, always for you, so that you also will
have covenant strength to go on in the precious truth that you now have with you many, many generations to
come. The Lord’s blessings to you all.
