partner with us as we share the Good News in MYANMAR in April 2007 :)

Turn to me and be saved,
all you ends of the earth;
for I am God, and there is no other.

Myanmar, the largest nation in Southeast Asia, is a primarily Buddhist nation still embroiled in military and ethnic conflict. like me, you might have been familiar with its old name, Burma, or its democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi who is in house arrest since 1989.

i'm happy to see that Myanmar has its own Ministry of Religious Affairs that encourages goodwill and peace towards people of all faiths :) as a Christian who will go on a short-term mission trip to that country, i'll be actively promoting Jesus :D but it's encouraging that, as i see it, Myanmar has a tolerant attitude towards missionaries. it's also definitely a big reminder for me that, as He has revealed Himself in the Bible, God is love, and honors the free will of the children He has created.

i've never been out of the Philippines!!! it's really exciting, especially because the main reason i'm going is to spread the Good News (as compared to now, when i try to talk about God during my day job, or in going to or from my day job, et cetera). Paul reminds us to glorify God in all we do but it's refreshing to set my priorities not just in my head and heart but also in the nitty-gritty of real life. time to practice what i preach, which is, to preach :D about God and His redeeming love for us.

this is the chance for you to be a missionary partner :) you can help our team through your prayers and financial support. partner means you are laboring with us on the field as we reach out to our Burmese brothers and sisters. overall, each of us needs US $1,500 or PhP 75,400 :) this includes travel, accommodation, food, and other expenses like tithes and administrative costs (for newsletters to update the missions partners, etc.).

i have been a World Partner myself for the last two years. i know how it feels to part with my so-called hard-earned money but knowing that it is going to support a great, noble purpose. guess what? i'm actually a partner of the pastors and their families who are out there in foreign (to them) lands, in some cases risking their very lives to share Jesus. and guess what? i've never been more blessed financially, as when i give. (a mathematical paradox, like 5 loaves + 2 loaves = 5000+ fed!) God blesses us as we bless our fellowmen.

i believe and know that God will make a way for me to go to missions :) simply because it is His will that all turn to Him and be saved (Isaiah 45:22) :) it's not about me, and all about Him :)

if you would like to learn more about my church, Every Nation, go here. Our goal is to reach Every Nation in Our Generation with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. :)

if you would like to make a contribution or can refer me to people who might, don't hesitate to contact me by making a comment here or sending an email to all financial transactions will be dealt with utmost transparency, with receipts and acknowledgements and newsletters from the field :)

as early as now i'd like to thank you for reading this and being a partner as you support us through prayers and finances. thank you, thank you, and i know that God will bless your concern and generosity a hundredfold. :)


  1. I'm excited for you, Teci! I'm sure your eyes will be opened to many things.

    hi tessa!

    i've been hearing about myanmar the past few weeks, mainly because u, joyce, karla, kim and other QC peeps are going there. I also happened to have a classmate in MS who is a nun from Myanmar. During my conversations with her, I have learned a lot of informations about her country, about the kind of government and the condition of the Christian churches there.

    I have then decided to co-labor with you and the rest of the Myanmar missions team in praying for that nation!

    Go and preach the good news! :)

    God Bless!
