Mercy Ministry Project at Kyawngkung
쾅쿵에서 자비 프로젝트
The Mercy Ministry project is aimed for the village called ‘Kyawmgkung’ that is located within Shwepyithar township, located 17 km North West from the Yangon International Airport. There are more than 50 households of downcast people are living in this area. 자비의 프로젝트가 양곤 국제 공학에서 17 km 북서쪽에 위치한 스웨피타 타운쉽의 쾅쿵 마을에서 있게 될 것입니다. 이 지역은 아주 빈한한 50세대 정도가 사는 마을입니다.
As I have been visiting this area to evangelize people for several months, I keep visiting these seven families. Whenever I saw them, I felt sorry and keep asking myself, "Can I try to help these people?" I have been praying God that I may be blessed to help the people in this area. I pray and try to help the fatherless family first, and then the other six families. I also pray for a worship house in this area that will be used to gather people to worship God and teach the uneducated children. 제가 몇 달간 이 지역을 방문하여 복음화를 위해 노력하고 있는 데 그곳을 방문할 때마다 여기에 보여주는 일곱 가족들을 방문하게 됩니다. 제가 이들을 볼 때마다 제 마음이 안스러워서 "내가 이들을 도울 방법이 없을 까?" 하고 제 자신에게 자꾸 묻게 됩니다. 저는 또한 이 곳에 사람들이 모여 예배드리고 교육받지 못한 아이들을 가르칠 수 있는 예배당을 위해 기도하고 있습니다.
The pictures below are the families that we want to help building new houses for them. At the end, some pictures will show the material (woods and bamboos) that we can use for building the houses and worship house. For the worship house, we may need some zinc, irons, and other material also.
1. The first family
The father, U Hla Thine, of the first family was deceased recently, leaving his wife and four children behind. The remained family members are hopeless and stay at a unclean hut.
The first family that I want to help by building a house if we can.
2. The second family
The house head of the second family is very old. The family is poor and sell some vegetables to avoid hunger. The first family that lost their father always come to the second family to ask for help. I shared this family with the gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe God is changing their hearts to salvation now. Amen.
The old man and his wife are both 80 years old now and help the first family like their parents.
3. The Third family
The third family is also very poor. Each day, they work and earn a small money to buy foods on the same day. When I gave them a present, one of the family members was really happy with me. The gospel of JESUS Christ will lead them to salvation easily. Thank God. Amen.
The Third family that I want to help by building a house if we can.
4. The fourth family.
I really felt pity on the children of the fourth family. The children are not receiving an education and are hopeless for the future. I believe that God will give me this family for His Glory. Amen.
The Fourth family that I want to help by building a house and stuff if we can.
5. The fifth family.
I met young girls at the fifth house. Their parents don`t care for their children's education. Seeing them, I remember my early days when I had no clothes to wear, neither have money for my education. Yes, I believe I can invite them to Sunday school.
The Fifth family that I want to help by building a house and stuff if we can.
6. The sixth family.
This is the sixth family that I met. The child seemed to be so lonely. I saw his smiling face when he accepted my present. Thank God. Amen.
The Sixth family that I want to help by building a house if we can.
7. The Seventh family
This is the man who helped me when I built a small bridge for the first family. He is polite, honest and having a compassion to the neighboring families.
The following pictures show the building material (woods and bamboos) that we can get at cheaper prices for building the houses, if God allows and blesses all of us to help this “Mercy Ministry.”
If we want to build the seven houses, it will cost about $200 US dollars per house. We also pray to build a worship house so that the people around the area would come for fellowship and worship services. The worship house will also be used for children's education center so that the children in this area may come for Sunday school as well as daily learning. If God permits, we will build it in middle area of these people's houses.
As this area is near my place, I plan to pastor in this area by visiting them frequently and nurturing them into spiritual maturity. I will find a Sunday school teacher to teach and care for the children. We hope to provide an allowance for the Sunday school teacher. I do not need an allowance to pastor them. I’m only concerned for the people, but I may need a motor bike for the ministry later. Note: In order to build the worship house, about $600 US dollar will be needed. The house can be built by the people of that area themselves, my father-in-law, and myself. In this Mercy Ministry project, seven houses and one worship house will be built. The total estimated material cost will be (1) Seven houses - $200 × 7 = $ 1,400 (2) A Worship house - $600 × 1 = $600 The Total Material Cost = $2,000 I hope you and I are called to reach the unreached through holding hands together and helping the poor.
