Wesleyan Ministry in Myanmar

This guest post is an e-mail from Morris Liana, President of Union Biblical Seminary in Myanmar.  It turns out that Rev Liana used to be the pastor of the Lal Nan Sanga family.  This is the first Burmese High Point family that I know about that had been Wesleyans prior to their arrival.

Dear Pastor John,
Sonia and I are so glad to hear that you have some 3 Mizo families at your church. If we could know their names that would be very helpful for us to pray for them. Lord willing, Sonia and I are planning to come back to US some time in September and if things are going well we wish we could visit your church and meet with our Mizo families.

We are busying with our ministries in Myanmar. Currently our Union Biblical Seminary (UBS) has 57 full-time and 4 part-time students (total 61) for this academic year (June 2011- January 2012). The UBS was started in 1999 and within this past 11 years we have had 290 graduates. Out of the 33 Wesleyan pastors in Myanmar 28 of them are our seminary graduates; out of 37 Wesleyan inland missionaries to the Buddhists 27 of them are our graduates. We thank God for His wonderful works through our ministry.

We also have Galilee Children Home (orphanage) with 31 orphans, which my wife Sonia is leading. All of them are in the school, except the two little boy and girl.

Please pray with us that we may continue the Lord’s Ministry in Myanmar successfully.
Here are some pictures for your information.

Together we can make a difference!
With kindest regards,

Morris and Sonia Liana (Remlalliana)
President of the UB

Jesus is first and foremost in my life. He is above all religions, principalities and powers. In everything He must increase and I must decrease. Into the hands of Jesus, God has placed life and death, truth and purity. strength and meaning. Only in a growing understanding of the triune God, and his son Jesus can I do, breathe, exist and serve. I have a Bachelor's degree in Bible from Vennard College, a Master's in Social Science from Azusa Pacific University and a Ph. D. from Ohio State in Family Relations and Human Development. I am an ordained pastor involved in cross-cultural ministry. I am currently employed at several colleges as an instructor.
