In spite of political unrest in Myanmar, Colleen Busch of Keizer, Oregon and Sheila Yeager of Grand Junction, Colorado continue teaching WEI students in Myanmar via Zoom.
In a recent email, Sheila wrote, “Philip V. is the evangelist for the church in Yangon; therefore he leads the prayers and directs the WEI students to read the particular Bible lesson during each Thursday evening Zoom class. After the reading, he explains the spiritual lessons in English; he often uses illustrations that women in Burmese culture can understand. Sometimes, when the students have a quizzical look of misunderstanding on their face, I encourage him to explain the hard concepts in Burmese. Then, the students display an understanding with their smiles and nods. At the end of the class, he takes the students through the quiz and makes them think about the answers. He is particularly good about prompting the students to answer the thought questions with critical thinking skills.”
Praise God that He is using Colleen and Sheila in conjunction with Philip to introduce this group of Burmese ladies to Christ in a land that is predominantly Buddhist.
