Bibles for Myanmar

God has blessed the efforts of the Myanmar Christians inside the 10/40 window with over 3,500 salvations since 2012. Their project is, “Bibles for Myanmar ,” and to date, 3,000 first generation Christians are without Bibles.  Their goal is huge but their faith is strong. Prior to 2012, the village of Paletwa was filled with Animists who believe the plant world is filled with mystical powers. Because of the faith and generous giving from their meager incomes, the Myanmar EMC Christians have seen over 2.000 people in the Paletwa region turn from their Animist worship and accept Jesus Christ as their personal savior. After seeing God lovingly care for their needs through the EMC Myanmar missionaries they wanted to know more about “their God.”

What we so readily take for granted, they do not have – a Bible to read and study His Word in order to grow deeper in Christian faith. For six US dollars each, the EMC Myanmar can order Burmese Bibles translated by Adnorium Johnson. We ask that you join us in the goal of 3,000 Bibles for 3,000 Christians in need.

Hamblen Endowment Fund

Dr. Hamblen, the founder of the Evangelical Methodist Church in 1946, had a rich and productive ministry.
The conversion of his son, singer/songwriter,
Stuart Hamblen, can be heard in Dr. Hamblen’s own words here. Stuart Hamblen was a product of Dr. Billy Graham’s early tent crusades in Los Angeles, CA.

The Hamblen Endowment Fund consists of two funds. Mr. and Mrs. Julius Bruner established an endowment on behalf of Dr. J.H. Hamblen and his ministry to the Evangelical Methodist Church. This fund supports the ministries of the denomination.

An Education Endowment was also established in Dr. Hamblen’s name to assist the cost of education for ministerial students. Service Grants are awarded to qualified ministerial students preparing for the ordained ministry of the Evangelical Methodist Church.

Water Wells

Ever year the Evangelical Methodist Church will be providing water wells in Myanmar and on the continent of Africa in the countries of Togo, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Kenya, Liberia and other countries where the Evangelical Methodist Church has congregations.The EMC will provide as many wells as the USA local churches provide the funds. This ministry is combined with evangelism and discipleship and church planting in unreached villages by the EMC congregations of that particular country. We partner with One Mission Society in Every Community for Christ village church planting and with Mercy Inc., for the well drilling.

Buses for the DRC

The goal for the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) is to become self sufficient and allow the church to rise above an “entitlement mentality”. Buses for the DRC is a project in which buses are purchased here in the United States and shipped by container to Kinshasa. The buses will be used to transport people during the week and will employ local church people. On Sundays they will be used to transport people to church. The people are poor and the government welcomes small businesses. This is a worthy project for a local church.

Buses for the DRC are between $7,000 and $10,000.

Agricultural Farming in Bas-Congo

With 80 million hectares (hectare = 2.47 acres) of arable land, climatic diversity, and abundant water, the agronomic potential of the Democratic Republic of Congo is matched only by Brazil. However, like much of the world, the DRC has traditionally relied on small scale agriculture. With rudimentary production technology, poor agricultural practices and lack of investment, DRC agricultural production has been stagnant or in decline. The goal is to reverse this trend by purchasing plants, seeds and necessary equipment in order to provide farming jobs to the people of Bas-Congo.

Cost for a farm $500.
