In 2002 at the special request 5000 New Testaments with special cover were printed locally for the for the religious leaders of the other faith. In the past it was not easy for BSM to print Bible or New Testament in one language within a year. However, with the concerted efforts made by the respective translation committees, BSM translation staff and translation consultants, there is a remarkable progress. Now, at least four new language scriptures would be ready for printing yearly. In addition to printing of new language scripture there is also an urgent need for reprinting of Bibles which are out of stock for some years for the church members as well as for the out reach programs. To meet the urgent need of the scripture, we have worked the production plan for 2004 and 2005....."

Title: Myanmar: Portraits of Diversity: U Nay Win (video)
Date of publication: April 2015
Description/subject: "Commissioned by CPCS, Myanmar: Portraits of Diversity is a series of short films seeking to stimulate discussion and move audiences towards recognizing, accepting, and celebrating religious diversity in Myanmar. Directed by Kannan Arunasalam, the films present individuals from Myanmar’s different religious communities and highlight the inter-faith connections and engagement that take place naturally around the country. Featuring stories of cooperation across religious and ethnic divides, as well as the capacity for peace leadership within the country, community leaders share analysis and insights into the threat of inter-communal violence and illustrate the capacity for peace leadership...The film series seeks to stimulate alternative narratives regarding ethnic and spiritual issues in Myanmar where tolerance and cooperation are highlighted, rather than conflict and persecution. Screened together with guided reflections, the films can be used as tools to stimulate exchanges of ideas about diversity and tolerance, and to create a space to foster acceptance and share visions for the future. The issues raised by individuals featured in the films can be used to generate discussions on Myanmar’s different religious communities and highlight the kinds of inter-faith connections and engagement that take place naturally around the country. A discussion and study guide is available for each video portrait, followed by suggested activities that can also be adapted to different learning environments. For each film, background is provided on the person and their context, followed by five discussion questions and extension activities..."
