South Korea sends first medical mission team to Myanmar

South Korea sends first medical mission team to Myanmar

by | 20 Feb, 2015

Yangon, Myanmar

A team of 13 people from Mokjang Church of the Nazarene in Cheonan City, South Korea, traveled to Yangon, Myanmar, last month for a medical mission trip. The team is the first from South Korea to travel to Myanmar.

More than 400 lives were touched as the team held clinics at three Nazarene churches and at Southeast Asia Nazarene Bible College.

The country of Myanmar (formerly Burma) has only been officially open since 2012 to sharing of the gospel through these types of teams.

The team worshipped one evening with Bible college students, Nazarene pastors, and church members. 

"I never imagined Nazarene churches in Myanmar," said Seongryong Seo, pastor of the Mokjang church. "I will go back to Korea and share my experience with the Nazarene churches in Korea, asking for their prayers for Nazarenes in this country."

Myanmar Country Coordinator Bill Kwon asks for continued prayer for the country of Myanmar, for the work of the Holy Spirit, growth of the church, and for more teams to be led by God to minister in Myanmar.

Kwon will be in the U.S. from June 15 to July 30. To schedule a visit,click here.
