Karen State, Myanmar
Southeast Asia Nazarene Bible College, located in Chaing Mai, Thailand, announced its first extension program, located in Karen State, Myanmar. The program is headed by SEANBC Academic Dean Dinga and Yangon Campus Dean of Students Enkawla, who are together teaching two courses.
Students from four local villages are taking advantage of this theological training and have committed to completing the pastoral Course of Study leading to ordination. SEANBC is anticipating more classes and attendees as the program continues.
After the classes, which are held from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Dinga and Enkwala visit neighbors and hold prayer in their homes. The principals also had the opportunity to preach in local churches and lead Sunday worship service. Group songs and children’s Bible recitation were among the activities during this fellowship. They also had the opportunity to go to the site of a house that recently burned in order to bless the family. Dinga and Enkwala prayed for the families and proclaimed God’s victory in the area.
