The regional language and ethnic conventions of the MBC collected this money, which is a wonderful blessing given that their own country recently had an earthquake as well. The money will be divided evenly with $5,000 going to the Japan Baptist Union and $5,000 to the Japan Baptist Convention as gifts from their brothers and sisters in Myanmar.
Rev. Stan Murray, area director for Southeast Asia and Japan said, “I think this is a great witness to the mercy and grace of God. Facing significant earthquake recovery in their own country, and given the state of the economy in Myanmar, our Baptist brothers and sisters have pulled together to make this generous offering to the Baptists in Japan!”
