MATUPI, MYANMAR—Sometimes the path forward is not clear. The Bible does not reveal each step we take in life. This is evident during times of ministry transition.

Le Ding, a Christian nurse in Matupi, Myanmar, is looking for a successor. He works as the Siloam Clinic medical director in conjunction with ministry director Rev. Chan Thleng. Le Ding has provided basic health education and treatment to villagers since the Luke Society partnership in 1998. He also preaches Christ in the mountainous village of Matupi.

For the past 20 years, Le Ding has hoped to be joined by a Christian doctor to serve the people. Recently, this desire has been more fervent as he ages.

Please pray for a visionary medical professional who can take up the challenging task of overseeing the Siloam Clinic. Pray that God keeps Le Ding strong and healthy as he desires to use his remaining years to bring lost souls to Jesus.

Praise God for the many years of faithful service Le Ding has provided and continues to provide. Over the years, many people have become Christians in Matupi and the surrounding villages, which are accessible only by foot trails.

Le Ding is not alone. Several other Luke Society directors are advancing in years. Pray for wisdom for these directors as they contemplate succession plans for the leadership of their ministries.

Though the path forward is not clear, our eyes remain on the Lord with a desire to do His will. “We do not know what to do, but our eyes are upon you” (2 Cor. 20:12).
