My name is Yin Maw. I am Po Karen and I live in Yangon, Myanmar. I am working with the Mothers’ Union, a ministry of the Anglican Church in Myanmar. Mothers' Union is an international Christian charity that seeks to support families worldwide.
I have many expectations for my D.Min. studies. I want to learn new methods and a more systematic way to live out my ministry in Myanmar. I also want to continue to empower myself and achieve increased capacity to work in my current ministry. Specifically, I’d like to be able to learn how to grow the church.
I have a passion for working with people – not just Christians but with other faith communities. This is why I am pursuing this D.Min. degree.
This opportunity to travel to the U.S. to study at Central Baptist Theological Seminary has been a blessing for me. I never dreamed of having an opportunity such as this. It is clear to me now that it was God’s plan for me to come here. What a gift!
I have been able to learn a lot by walking alongside other D.Min. students from Myanmar. I can learn from the mission experiences in their respective contexts. The opportunity to engage with U.S. based D.Min. students has also been very rewarding. I have learned how they live out their ministry in their local church and ministry. I am grateful that we can learn from each other.
