‘Cross-cultural mission at our door-steps’ was the motivation to establish MMM. People from Myanmar constitute the 3rd largest foreign group in Malaysia, with the number exceeding 100,000.
In 2005, under the guidance of bro. Loh Ah Asiau of Gospel Outreach Worldwide, the MMM Board with the help of Elder Philip Cin Suan Nang of Dagon Christian Assembly in Yangon, arranged for the service of full-time worker cum bible school teacher, to spearhead the Myanmar people out-reach work in Malaysia.
By God’s grace, this brother provided by the Lord was able to come in August 2005 and he has since been serving in Kuala Lumpur.
