The crisis could be studied in three stages from 2001-2005 viz: Misunderstanding, Misinterpretation, and Confrontation, wherein individualism and racialism emerged. 


Dec MYUM Session: MYUM leaders introduced the so - called newly adopted GC Policy for election by forming up the Standing Committee by the expired MYUM - EC against the SSD Working Policy and the €œLocal Conference Session " GC Working Policy, 1997 - 98 ed. C 30 05 and 10, pp 90 - 91., and Article V €œRepresentation.

Jan UMM Triennial Session: MYUM President and the newly elected UMM President introduced the so - called system of MYUM at UMM Session again. That was to form the Nominating Committee members by the already expired UMM - EC.

This proposal was objected by Pr Kham Khen Pau(KKP), the UMM Secretary and Mr. Kai Za Dal (KZDal) and some lay members. 

Jan 30 MYUM voted to close down ATI that had been operated since June 1998 by mutual agreement with committee action of UMM and MYUM leaders.

April 17 UMM was enforced by MYUM to close down ATI during the Centennial Jubilee, at Tandaung, Kayin State.

UMM members began to complain on constituency election, ATI, and the way they administered church schools operated by the local churches and their direct appointment of principals.

May UMM members who have burden for Adventist education see the need of having an association for promoting Adventist edu., in UMM, and reminding of the higher unit for Conference status.

June Lead Conference Seminar: SSD Secretary Dr. GT Ng met with MYUM and UMM officers to discuss about the complaints of UMM. Kenneth negatively reported about ATI, and Conference to G. T. Ng of SSD.

GT Ng orally advised that MYUM should allow Kale as a Junior College and a Training Center at Pyinoolwin for solution based on KKP's proposal.. The advice was absolutely turned down by Pr Tin Tun who uttered,  and he said We have no money.

July MYUM transferred KKP and GLPau to Yangon and Katha respectively for their morally and physically sympathizing of ATI.

Nov MYUM Secretary Pr. Muller, Pr. Kenneth, Pr. Kai Khan Khual, UMM Stewardship Dir., visited to give negative comments on ATI and Conference. When questioned about the severe warning against studying at ATI, UMM leaders pretended to know nothing about it. Retired Pastor Ngul Khaw Pau commented that Conference Promoters would be cut off like cutting the nail by the division that would overrule them.

Nov 20 Members discussed the prevailing situation in MYUM/UMM, and
28 Conference Planning Committee was initiated by representatives from 28 churches and 40 companies.



Jan 1 MYUM Presidential circular accused that Conference Promoters are as a cancerous disease to be cut off in time.

Jan 3 Muller met lay members at Tahan. He committed to some that Upper Chindwin could be granted right away. 

Jan 7 CPC officially applied for Conference status to SSD as a renewal of the 1987, and 1992 applications to FED and APD.

Jan 26 UMM President'confidential letter to EC members and Circle leaders accused the CPC as rebellion against the church like Absalom to David while apparently they rebelled against the church ceaselessly. He also stated that MYUM agreed (on Jan 21-25) that CPC leaders should not be cut off by now.

Feb Mr. Thang Kang Do, a lay member of the Yangon Central Church was intended to be listed as an advisor to the CPC. When this intention was distributed in writing among lay members the name Thang Kang Do was mistaken for Thang Kang Lo, a mission worker whom, Pr. Kenneth, UMM President, forced to sign an agreement that he would never accompany the CPC and take a firm position against instead. 

Mar MYUM planned to visit churches of UMM to separate/divide names that support for and that do not support Conference, and report the lists to SSD. The team members comprised officers, Dept. Directors of all Missions of MYUM.

April 23 MYUM Stewardship Dir. Pr Montana commented positively in his introductory message and concluded with negative ending without proper understanding.


April 29 GT Ng from SSD met with 9 CPC representatives, MYUM Officers, and UMM officers at Pyinoolwin. He guided that workers and lay members should work unitedly for Conference status achievement.

MYUM leaders consented to remove all barriers and work together unitedly.

June UMM Mid -year EC invited 4 additional members Pr. Mai Don, Za Nawla, Kai Za Dal, Khual Za Nang, Khen Do Pau and reached mutual agreement as follows:

( 1 ) There would be no separated committee except UMM- EC to which 2 or 3 lay representatives be added to the committee to work out for conference status: KZNang, Khen Do Pau as regular, KZDal as an invitee.

( 2 ) MYUM will be cooperative for UMM to become conference and removing all its obstacles.

( 3 ) MYUM will be cooperative to elect a leader who will be conference oriented, conference advocated, in coming December 2003 MYUM session 

( 4 ) CPC would then submit tithe, and offerings to UMM.

And clearance on Kenneth's false report about KZDal to SSD for receiving tithes for himself was admitted rectifying his fault. (Ng to Kenneth, June 5, 2003)



July 18 Kenneth's circular letter explained that Mission and Conference should not be understood as separate organization, Gulfan Jr. met with KZDal and Khen Do Pau on 10/7/03 Thursday, during Go 3 million, and a resolution had been made on 11/7/03 Friday that UMM will initiate for conference, and that misunderstandings by false report to SSD had been cleared. (Kenneth, July 18, 2003.

Aug 12 Kenneth's circular accused CPC as the Alpha rebellion followed by the Omega rebellion as predicted by EG White. The CPC is accordingly seen to be deviation like Kellogg's Pantheism, and D. M. Canright. 


Sept 23 CPC talked with Pr. Muller, the acting MYUM President, on Conference and asked whether his position was to keep on June agreements since there were opposing voices from mission workers.

He promised in Pinlon Adventist Church that MYUM will be positive for unity. This meeting was called on because of negative voices and of circulars. (Referred to Kenneth's circular letter of Aug 12).

Sept 24 Elder Gulfan Jr. from SSD lectured what all about Conference. After that he challenged lays and workers to remove barriers and work unitedly. Pr. Kai Khan Khual, UMM Secretary, responded that he would begin by himself according to the procedure step by step to achieve conference status after confessing failures on their part.

Sept 25 UMM Officers met CPC members and discussed that UMM and CPC would work out in unity for Conference, "Criteria for Conference Status Application" should be filled up by UMM and proceed on to higher organization, and tithe should be submitted to UMM by December after fulfilling mutual agreement between CPC and MYUM at June mid-year meeting. (Refers to Nov. 18 below). 

UMM leaders made opposing strange remark.

Oct 25 Sabbath morning: UMM Secretary told that the CPC would be put out of church. Pr. Min Lwin, UMM President heralded the same voice in Kachin Circle at the same time.

Nov 6 CPC appointed Elder Khual Za Nang to inquire and discuss with Union regarding the current situation for narrowing the gap. Muller and Memory met with him and reconfirmed the previous agreements made in June. Khual Za Nang pleaded them to help stop mission workers from opposition.
Nov 17 KKP circulated a detail story of SSD Pres€™ visit, the mutual agreements, and the negative responses of UMM. (Referred to SSD President's Visit above)

Nov 18 CPC called emergency meeting for immediate implementation of agreements made by Muller, Memory, and Khual Za Nang by submitting Tithe. Invitation was made to UMM, MYUM and copy was sent to SSD by email. No representative was sent from UMM or MYUM.

So members lost their trust and confidence upon the leaders for their failures of promises and for negligence.

Nov 24 KZDal informed SSD about the current negative position of UMM/MYUM leaders against SSD policy to cut off the CPC by December 2003.

Nov 29 Members in Shan State such as Naungcho, Yadana, Nama, Lashio, Namtu/ Bawdwin, and Hsi - paw signed for cooperative toward Conference status.

Nov 29 KZDal and Khual Za Nang were authorized to meet and discuss again with Muller and Memory Tun by the CPC for peace and unity, prevalence of law and order in the church. 

Dec 1 CPC representatives met with Muller. Further discussion was refused by MYUM acting President Pr. Muller who has already had a preplanning with UMM representatives whom they dominated and said to them You are late, although the election was yet to be had the next day. Information about this was given to Elder Gulfan Jr. at Panda Hotel.


Dec 7 Min Lwin and KKK phoned KZDal to meet on 11/12/2003. KZDal told them that this was a matter to be discussed with MYUM after their fulfillment of the mutual agreement :( gap remained un-bridged as MYUM failed its agreements).
