Yangon/Myanmar. With a divine service at the Myanmar Convention in Yangon hall Chief Apostle Wilhelm Leber concluded his visit to the Far East. Heavy rains prevented some to come. Most of the members are from Shin State far up North. Yet 172 were gathered in the divine service.
The Chief Apostle started the service with the words: “It was difficult to come here, but you have not given up and shall now be blessed.” NEVER GIVE UP – the sermon was based on Psalm 107:20 “he sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions”. The Chief Apostle emphasized on spiritual health which is sustained or in case of spiritual sicknesses which are healed by God’s word. Also in Yangon he admonished all, never to lose the joy in the Lord. Without joy, nothing can be accomplished in God’s house.
