The work in Myanmar {Burma) is just beginning after some difficulty in setting this up. Pastor Martin Lilthangliana from Gospel Outreach Missions first contacted us on 3rd Oct 2010, asking for permission to translate some of our tracts in the local languages of Burmese and Mizo. The purpose of that mission group is to get the Living Word of God to people in parts of that country who have never heard of him. This is also the whole purpose of our existing.

The following are extracts from emails we received from Martin:

Sadly, because of lack of funds we have been unable to assist the work in Myanmar for some time, but we would urge you all to pray for this great work being carried out there by Rev. Martin Lalthangliana, GOSPEL OUTREACH MISSION; 

Dear Friends and co-workers, I am sharing the ministries that I am doing during December and Christmas. God is amazingly blessed with my personal ministries as well as ministries of Gospel Outreach Mission around the country.
Revival Crusade - On December 2, our invited chief guests from Mizoram, India for revival crusade speaker and soloist arrived Yangon to do revival crusade among the Chin and Mizo people. They were young, energetic and committed to the Lord's work. We start the crusade with Yangon Lutheran Church on Dec. 3rd and on Dec. 5 until Dec. 7 at Methodist English Church from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The average attendance is about 600 everyday. The people in Yangon are revived with the Holy Spirit and the ministry is very successful.

On Dec. 8th, I went to Tahan with a team of 5 people including our speaker and soloist. The crusade was held at Tahan Presbyterian Church, starting from Dec. 9th until Dec. 13th. The crusade was done day and night on Saturday and Sunday and only at night on other 3 days. Every attendance at worship service is 1,500. The people are very blessed with the message as the speaker's message is focusing on Bible and encourage renewing lives and transformed with the Holy Spirit.
Christmas at Hope Education Centre - A Christmas celebration was held at Hope Education Centre on Dec. 23rd afternoon with the students of HEC, their families and staff. Leaders from Yangon Lutheran Church went there to share the Christmas message. Our missionary teacher, Mr. Manna Ling chaired the service and the main message was preached by our evangelist Mr. Lalthanzaua. About 35 children, some members of their families, staffs of HEC and church leaders, altogether about 50 people enjoyed and celebrate Christmas. Since most of the children and their families were purely Buddhists, our message aimed to share only the love of God, meaning of Christmas and why Jesus was born. At the end of the service, many presents were given to outstanding students in school class, and also students with good discipline and regular attendance at HEC class. After the service, dinner was provided along with evangelism tracts and booklets.
Christmas at Shwe Pyi Tar Mission Church - I thought I was never going to be able to celebrate Christmas at Shwe Pyi Tar Mission Church because of the health condition of our missionary, Mr. Min Lwin Oo's wife, Mrs. Khin War. But Mr. Min Lwin Oo still want to celebrate Christmas like old times as this is the best time to share Christmas message and gospel with the unbelievers and believers around where they live. Pastor Lalchuka, Evangelist Lalthanzaua and I went there to celebrate Christmas on Dec. 24th in the morning. The main message was given by Pastor Lalchuka; sharing the love of God for all the people around the world, send his one and only Son in this world to save sinners. About 50% of the worshipers were Buddhists and they especially came to hear the Christmas message and find out more about the meaning. After the service, tracts and booklets along with the lunch were provided to the people.
Christmas in Yangon - Every year, a Christmas celebration was held on Dec. 24th night and the whole day on Dec. 25th and it is same with this year 2011. About 60 people including the children from Immanuel Children Home came to church. The Christmas message was shared by Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Lal Sawi Thanga and songs, choir from ICH children, and Christmas gift exchange program were done during the service in the afternoon. After the service, we sing songs together and have fellowship and have dinner together. It was very happy Christmas.
We've distributed evangelism books, booklets and tracts on every service. A lot of distributors from Bago, Yangon, Sagaing, Shan and Kachin State requested literature for Christmas and we've distributed thousands of booklets and tracts and share the gospel among the unbelievers. It was indeed joyful. We covet your prayers, financial support for children home and missionaries, and funds for continuation of printing Christian literature. We cannot go on without your help.
This news will be the last news around Gospel Outreach Mission that I can share in the year 2011. Hope you will enjoy!
In Christ, Rev. Martin Lalthangliana, Gospel Outreach Mission, 247 Bogyoke Street, Yangon 11182, Myanmar



13th July 2011

Dear Brother Daniel, it's been a while since I have contacted you. The reason is that I have had to stay in our mission field areas which are very remote places and there is no internet connection. We were able to print 20,000 copies of "Jesus Christ The Word of God" and "Living Word of God" with the funds we received from you.
We distributed the tracts along with relief aid in Rakhine State as well as to our missionaries in Yangon and different parts of Myanmar. Even the amount we distributed is not enough. We were able to share the word of God and give the tracts in our house to house evangelism, crusades, and seminars and even attached the tracts to the door of some houses in Yangon.
We have received 50 salvation testimonies from our mission fields and some of them are former drug addicts and alcoholic. I am very glad to hear of the salvation stories we received and can't get enough to share this with others.
I want to thank you for your continue prayer and effort in printing tracts and share the word of God with the people of Myanmar. Your participation is a blessing for our missionaries as well as for the growth of Christianity in Myanmar. The more disciples of Jesus that we have, the more we can expand the Kingdom of God in this country.
We are praying to print more tracts as we don't have any in our hands now. We would like to print 50,000 tracts and will need $1,000 for printing them. Currently we are translating "Right of Choice" and "The Fall - Satan's and Man's" into Burmese
language. We will be able to finish them very soon. Please pray for our ministries here. In Christ, Rev. Martin Lalthangliana, Gospel Outreach Mission

1st Dec 2010:

Dear brothers Daniel and Terri, thank you for your email. I received the funds you sent from my sister about four days ago. Thank you very much. These will enable us to bring the Living Word of God to people who have never heard of him. I am currantly translating "Jesus Christ, the Word of God", and "The Living Word of God", into the Burmese language. With these funds we will be able to print around 20,000 copies. Hopefully I will finish them next week and I will then send you the PDF files. I will be going to Rakhine State with our evangelists around 15th Dec, and we will distribute the tracts among the unbelievers in that region. Because of the cyclone disaster people are more receptive to the gospel and want to hear more. This is a good time to start sharing the good news among them, and to distribute tracts for further study. I will report about our distribution process once we have finished the work. In Christ; Martin Lilthangliana.
