Hello from Daniel Mawyio

12 Feb

Note from forwarding agent, Kelly: There are plenty of financial needs in Myanmar. Please read the updates below and share them with individuals or churches who may want to give to God’s Kingdom work in Myanmar. Thank you for continued support of the Mawyio family and ministry.

Happy New Year to you all!

We are so thankful to God for the blessings and the ministerial opportunities that we had in 2017 and so excited about what God will fulfill through us for His glory in 2018. Thank you very much to our friends and sponsors for your prayers and supporting us in Myanmar ministry. We are sending the best wishes to you to be a blessed new year.

Family updates:

Under His love and mercy, we are all doing well.

• Gideon is excited to take his final exam that is township level test. From this week, he is practicing some performances with his friends at school to present on the school birthday.

• Ezra has no anxieties for exams because they don’t have exams in KG class since the educational policy changed.

• We enjoy Nathanael’s intelligence and speaking skills like an adult.

• Buzi is busy in her own ways with social and church activities besides housework. I am busy with my school agenda.

• My mother has a lump on her check and took biopsy and will know the result this week. Please pray for it not to be cancer; about fifteen years ago she had breast cancer and they were able to remove it.

House/Ministry Center Construction:

The construction is near complete. It stopped while I was traveling in December (see below) because of financial shortage. But now it’s continuing with the inner rooms. Next we start roofing. And then fitting pipes, wiring, and flooring will follow. Although we originally expected it to finish in December or January, now hopefully it will be completed by the end of February. We simply hire limited workers under a limited amount of money because I cannot give the demanded amount. Everything is God’s blessings, flowing through His faithful people and God is working in His timing.

MBI graduation & decisions ahead:

This week MBI is ending the school year. All the faculty members and students have worked hard to complete their work. The graduation will be Feb 14th—and 21 students will graduate this year. We are revising the constitution and by-laws of the institution. If it is approved in the annual meeting tomorrow, Feb 13th, some changes will be expected in next academic year. We are praying these will be good changes for the future.

Ministry training:

As usual, the Christmas season was filled with joy and excitement, having more opportunities and activities in the ministry. MBI (Myanmar Bible Institute) was involved in several different places during Christmas break. At least in seven places, the teachers and the students actively participated in preaching, teaching, and other services. I conducted a ministers seminar successfully in a village called Wangtong in Lahe township in NW. It has two different ways to get there. By flight from Mandalay to Khamti that takes one and fifteen hours and then two days by motor bike to the village. Another way is three-day trip by boat from Mongywa to Khamti and then another two days by motor bike to the village. I always take the first option which saves much time. I took one teacher and a student from MBI. The student is from this village and hadn’t seen his wife and 3-year-old boy for one year.

The village is one of the remote, isolated Naga villages. Many people are thirsty for the gospel. Including some church members, around 50 people attended the seminar; 30 were ministers, church leaders, and Sunday school teachers as expected. I taught “Church and the Ministry” and my friend taught “1 Timothy.” We had worship services and Bible study programs at night during the week. More church members participated in the night programs. We realize that they have to be made sure the biblical doctrines of “Assurance of Salvation,” “Baptism,” and “The Lord’s Supper” (because nowadays, the Calvinist’s doctrine about “Once saved, always saved” influences in the churches). As the ministers went to short-term Bible training schools, seminar programs are effective to help them continue developing skills in both leadership and doctrines. After the seminar, we celebrated Christmas. Many people from nearby villages came and heard the Christmas message. And I had the wonderful opportunity to perform a friend’s wedding in Lahe Church.

Enjoy the photos attached also.
Thank you, may God bless you all!
