Chin State is Center of Wesleyan Work
This week I talked with H. C. Wilson, head of Global Partners for the Wesleyan denomination and he said that he had just visited the town of Kalay in the Chin state of Burma (see second met, the very top). He said that is the headquarters for the Wesleyan work in Myanmar. Our denomination’s Myanmar district has 58 churches, and a large medical clinic. The largest church numbers 800. I was talking with Vena, one of our parishioners in High Point, and he said he has an uncle and cousins that are all a part of that Wesleyan work.
Here are two maps, the first locates the Chin state in Burma. Notice it shares a western border with India and Bangaladesh. The second map is a close up of the Chin state with labels of key regions and language groups that are a part of our First Wesleyan Church. Biak is from the Hahka region, Peng Len is from the Matupi region, and Vena is from the Mizo region.
