Missionary Spotlight on. . .
MISSIONARY ASSOCIATE TO MYANMAR
The nation of Myanmar is the name of once was known as Burma. Last estimate it has a population of 55 to 60 million. The country is 80% Buddhist and 95% of the country is without the Gospel. There are many needs in Myanmar, like many countries in the region poverty, slavery / human trafficking, drugs addictions are big problems. Tim was made aware of Myanmar 2 years ago, and the funny thing that opened the door was his skills as a cook. He went there for 21 days to help manage a coffee house in the city of Yangon. God made it very evident that He wanted Tim there. The love between Tim and the staff was very apparent. While Tim was there, he passed a Buddha statue and God told him to look at it. God said “I am the water of Life and these people are pouring water on a dead idol. Tell them of my love, tell them of my salvation. Tim, you tell them.”
