Sketch About BSM
In Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), the Bible Ministry was introduced by the British and Foreign Bible Society since 1889 as its one of the agencies. The ministry was led by the following missionaries as the Secretary of the agency until 1964.
(1) Rev William Sherratt (1899-1933)
(2) Rev W. H. Willans (1933-1957)
(3) Rev S. V. Vincent (1957-1964)
Due to political change in Myanmar, all foreign missionaries had to leave the country. As a result the Bible ministry was ministered under the leadership of the national Church leaders since 1964, and the ministry was reorganized as independent and autonomous Bible Society. The full-time national General Secretaries since 1964 are:
(1) Rev U Aung Than (1964 – 1985)
(2) Rev Than Tun Myat (1985 – 1999)
(3) Rev Dr Saw Mar Gay Gyi (2000 – 2010)
(4) Rev Khoi Lam Thang (2010 – to date)
Present Officers (from 2017) are:
Chairman: Rev Dr Zaw Win
Vice Chairman: Captain Lalsangliana
Treasurer: Rev Dr Saw Crainner
The Bible Society of Myanmar is committed to make the BIBLE available by TRANSLATING in to the local languages with quality and faithful to the source languages, PUBLISHING in the format they preferred and DISTRIBUTING with the affordable prices; thus helping them INTERACTING with the Word of God.
To implement the VISION, the Bible Society of Myanmar values partnership and cooperation with the United Bible Societies, international and national Christian Organizations, other Bible agencies and national Churches.
“To transform Myanmar people by the power of the Word of God.”
