As of June 2012, we have reached out to the several non-member Burmese churches located in San Diego, California, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Battle Creek, Michigan. During the visit, the BCANA’s team participated in leading the bible study, preaching, as well as presenting the history, the mission, and the purpose of BCANA. By doing so, we have come to know more of the local church and its leaders. Also, we were able to establish a warm rapport with the pastors and members. Here’re the time line of our visits:
- January 6-8, 2012: President Rev. Zau Ya Lahpai and Executive Director Rev. Samuel Saw paid a fellowship visit to San Diego Myanmar Community Church. The church’s pastor is Pastor Utke. (Photos not available yet.)
- March 23-25, 2012: Executive Board member Rev. U Myo Maw and Associate Director William Min Sein visited the First Burma Christ Church of St. Paul, Minnesota. The church’s pastor is Pastor Naing Mya Thi. (Photos not available yet.)
- June 1-3, 2012: Executive Director Rev. Samuel Saw, Executive Board member Rev. Dr. Biak Hlei Mang, and Secretary Lawrence Chow went to the Burmese Christian Fellowship of the First Baptist Church, Battle Creek, Michigan. The church”s pastor is Rev. Dr. David Laisum. See Photos.
