Missions Network Meeting: Palestine

The Palestinian Bible Society ministers to the Palestinians residing in Jerusalem, West Bank and Gaza. Mr Filmon shared updates from the ground, the resources needed by the churches and their communities, and the challenges facing the churches. Participants also learnt about the different initiatives that they have such as Zacchaeus House, the centre that serves as a weekly source of encouragement for women in Jericho.

Missions Network Meeting: Middle East

Mr Johansen shared on the updates on the refugee situation, challenges facing the church and how the Bible Society's partnership with SAT-7 is impacting children and women. He also gave us an overview on how the use of satellite TV penetrates borders and educates the next generation. Participants who attended the Missions Network Meeting found the session beneficial especially for those who have a passion for mission work in the Middle East.


Missions Network Meeting: Myanmar

Myanmar has a population of 52 million with only 4-5% Christian. It is one of the poorest nations in the region. Many are still in need of Bibles after more than five decades of military ruling.

The Missions Network Meeting - Myanmar was held on Friday, 1 April 2016 and was attended by 38 participants from various churches. The General Secretary of The Bible Society of Myanmar (BSMy), Rev Khoi Lam Thang, started with a presentation on the history of BSMy, the socio-political situation, the demographics, and the various works of BSMy. He also shared on the past mission trips to Myanmar. We heard about the sentiment in Myanmar due the changes in the political atmosphere and how these changes present opportunities for the churches. We were encouraged to partner with BSMy to explore the many opportunities to bless the people of Myanmar!

After the presentation, participants had the opportunity to share about their own mission experiences in Myanmar. Our own staff also shared about his experience of being used by God to answer a long awaited (25 years!) prayer for Bibles by one orphanage. One sister, who has many years of business links with Myanmar, shared about the pitfalls of going into missions without proper guidance. Thereafter, participants formed groups to network and to pray for Myanmar.

Missions Network Meeting: Nepal

With a population of 26 million, less than 2% are Christian. Nepal suffered two devastating earthquakes in April and May 2015 where thousands were killed and injured, and buildings (including churches) were destroyed.

The Missions Network Meeting: Nepal was held on Friday, 4 March 2016 and was attended by 22 participants from various churches. The General Secretary of the Nepal Bible Society, Rev Tej Jirel, gave a presentation of the socio-political situation in Nepal. We heard updates of the various aspects of the work of the Nepal Bible Society (NBS) and the different programmes and activities to encourage people to engage with the Bible. We were given first hand updates on the disaster relief efforts, particularly from the Body of Christ. Rev Tej also shared his burden for girls at risk and how churches can consider working with NBS to address it. Finally, we were given a glimpse into the Bible Mission Trip that will happen later this year.

After the presentation, some participants shared about their own mission experiences in Nepal. An elderly brother shared about how he had been going for 25 years to plant churches! Another group, formed informally, had gone on several trips to do charity work. There was a lot of exchanging of contacts and notes before the meeting broke into smaller groups to pray for Nepal.
