Grace upon Grace: The story of a missionary

Gr.CMS_Inside_300x217

It was like a page out of John 3. But the scene was thousands of miles from where Nicodemus encountered Jesus. And it was an evangelist sharing the truth with a rural, teenage girl studying in the city of Yangon.

Grace Magar, born and raised in a Kachin village in northern Myanmar, had just enrolled in a university when she chanced upon a local missionary. Despite having attended the village church from her childhood, Grace was taken aback when the missionary asked, “Are you born again?”

Dr Saggu: Two milestones and a whole new world

Saggu.CMS_Inside_300x217

Dr Abraham Saggu was born into a Hindu family in a remote village in south India. After his father passed away, his mother came to faith in Christ and eventually became a “bible woman.”

The only child in the family, Saggu was attending church for a year and thought he was living out life as a Christian until a divine appointment one night. He was at home when he overheard his mother sharing the gospel with an elderly lady. Among other things, his mother asked the neighbour, “Where will you spend your eternity if you die tonight?”

Despite the usual congestion in traffic on a weekday evening, many turned up early and the programme commenced on time.

The talk was organised by AsiaCMS in collaboration with Asia Gateway, Seminari Theoloji Malaysia, and the Malaysian Center for Global Mission.

Building a foundation of faith

Build.CMS_Inside_300x217

As we stay simple, humble and true to Scriptures, we could feel the faithful leading of God. In 2017, the Shalom School of Ministries started a training programme called “Building a Foundation for Faith”.

It is aimed at reaching out to local pastors and church leaders who lack opportunities to attend training in their local areas to equip themselves. Our facilitators humble themselves to stay where they stay, eat what they eat and fellowship with them in God’s love.
