Legacy seeks volunteers to serve in Myanmar
BANGKOK, Thailand--Leon Sexton, an independent Church of God member who lives part of the time in Bangkok and the rest of the year in Rowlett, Texas, announced in November that a friend of his who lives in Kachinland, a province in northern Myanmar, is looking for "two young Americans" to serve in the "new vast mission fields" in Myanmar.
The volunteers would assist Lazum Brang, pastor of several hundred Church of God brethren in the Kachinland region, in ministering to the Church of God members there.
Legacy Institute, founded and directed by Mr. Sexton, would coordinate the student-volunteer project.
Other recent institute projects have been three Feast of Tabernacles sites: in Thailand, Myanmar (also called Burma) and India.
After the Feast of Trumpets, Sept. 30, Mr. Sexton and his wife, Gloria, traveled from their residence in Bangkok to Chiangmai, Thailand, for the Day of Atonement.
This year Legacy helped sponsor a Feast site in India for 25 scattered Church of God members who observed the Feast in Pondychery, said Mr. Sexton, as well as a site in northern Myanmar.
"We sent them hymnal tapes, sermon tapes and financial support for hall rental," Mr. Sexton said.
The Sextons and the institute also sponsored and attended a site in Thailand for Church of God members who are members of the Karen tribe who live on the Myanmar side of the Myanmar-Thailand border.
