BM Ministry, Permyjaya, Miri

A humble beginning, Nov 2004

... just 2-3 families of indigenious people in Permy Jaya/Tudan were interested to know more about God. Thanks to Brother Eddy who link up with them. At the beginning, we have our Pastor Lau Hui Seng, Brother Anthony and Eddy who pay them regular visit. I tag along recording the event on photos.

... A few months later, April 2005.

... the Sunday School. Mind you, this room was very warm! Mak Mat was one of the SS teachers!

Many "town" children would not want to be in there! But they stayed on... to listen to the bible story.

June 2005, Pastor Law continued to teach them ... They came to GMC to present songs on July 2005 ...
Many people were baptised in 2005 ...
April 2006, the room was overflowing.
Cute children! They didn't run around or make noise while the parents listened ...
Oct 2006
April 2007. A new Pastor Chan. Fluent in their language is now the new pastor.
This is what I called dedication!
Iban ministry has grown from a few people in 2004 to more than 100 now. They are not "migration Christian" but new "home grown". I am very proud of them. The next article is the testimony of the late Jan van Regteren to this group of indigenous people. Do pray for their spiritual growth and salvation!
