Subject:  Upper Myanmar Conference (UMC) is not a legitimate Organization
      The Upper Myanmar Conference of SDA (UMC) is just a self-appointed organization of disobedient people with questionable motives. Since it was not form by any act of the Church, the church had never legitimated nor recognized them.
      Therefore, be it known to all members that the Executive Committee of Upper Myanmar Local Mission had voted a resolution against them (UMC) as illegitimate organization.
      Moreover, all actions of the said group have nothing to do with the Seventh-day Adventists church.

Subject:  Request to protect the Church Buildings
1.     The Seventh-day Adventist church was organized in 1919. It was officially registered with the Stock Exchange Company of Myanmar in 1949.
2.   As a legally organized church, it functions in accordance with the laws. At present, some group of people led by Mr. Kai Za Dal of Kalaymyo are trespassing the lands and buildings of the church to rob them without any consent of the government in order to organize the Adventist conference illegally.
3.   They are a group of people who disobeyed the rules and regulations of the church for several times in order to control church properties for their personal benefits. For that reason we have disfellowshiped them.
4.   Since the said illegal group caused disturbance to the church, we not only reported to the Police stations and the State Peace and Development Councils, but also informed the Ministry of Religious Affairs to take necessary actions against them. As the result, the Ministry had authorized all the divisional offices to inquire the case.
5.   It is learnt that the said illegal group have penetrated and annexed into Mayan SDA church that is located within your jurisdictional territory.
6.  Therefore, I request your honor to protect the Mayan SDA church building from being controlled by them in accordance with the laws

Subject:  Request to help solve religious crime
Re: Chairman of Sawbwayeshin Village Council dated October 18, 2004
November 22, 2004
We, the formal Seventh-day Adventists, humbly request your honor to help us solve a religious crime with fairness. And we would like to inform you that since the deeds of the self-supporting group that caused schism in the church are all contracting actions to the formal administration of the church. We, therefore, classify them as illegal body that had never been recognized by the government authorities.
1.     We, the formal SDA have confirmed the disbandment of them in accordance with resolution number 2004-090.
2.   Therefore, let it be known to your honor that the said illegal groups have nothing to do with the church’s land, buildings, and any material objects thereof the church.
3.   They are only a handful of people who are dissatisfied with the church’s election and complained that it was unconstitutional. But it was done accordingly with the instruction given by our superior and no one questioned the result of the election except a handful of people from Upper Myanmar.
The above mentioned 3 points and other accusations such as selfishness, racism, spiritual immaturities, and baseless allegations have not only degraded the essence of religion but also caused disunity in the church.
May I request your office to help solve the issue with fairness.
Yours respectfully,

Subject: Regarding the Seventh-day Adventist Church (SDA)

      Regarding the subject mentioned above, pastor of the formal Pinlong SDA church had informed to your good office (dated 12/12/2004) that we have appointed a committee on 12/12/2004.
      But before the incidence had taken place, an illegal Conference group robbed the key of the church building from Mr. Cin Khaw Pau, the key keeper, and they seem to handed over to Mr. Kham Zam Thang.
      On the date we had to organize a committee at 9:00am, the said group denied to open the church door by excusing that the key was kept by Mr. Thang Khan Suan. Then he in turn passed it on to his wife who was away from home for shopping.
      After a while a young man came with the key and opened the door. Such was the way they acted to cause disturbance in order to confiscate church properties. Besides that they cut off the telephone line.
      Therefore we, the nominees of the Special Power made a resolution to LOCK THE CHURCH BUILDING temporarily basis. The implementation of the resolution will be initiated by Mr. Pum Za Lian in accordance with the authorities vested with us by the Local Mission officers

Subject: Request to illegalize and stop the Conference Planning Committee (CPC)/Upper Myanmar Conference (UMC)/Myanmar Adventist Conference (MAC)

Dear Sir,

1.     With regards the subject mentioned above, the Seventh-day Adventist church had been a legally recognized religious body by Association of Stock Exchange Company and the Ministry of Home Affairs since 1949(1097/8-48-49 dated 26-7-49).

The above group led by Mr. Kai Za Dal was disobedient to the church and caused disturbance of peace and tranquility of worship. They are separatists who attempted to take over all church buildings, Bible Schools, and other properties thereof the church.

2.   Even after several negotiations were undertaken by the church to settle the issue, there was no improvement that the Upper Myanmar Mission Executive Committee and Myanmar Union Mission decided it to be illegal organization with resolution number 2004-017 and 2004-090 respectively.

3.   Mr. Kai Za Dal informed the government on June 28, 2004 that they might be recognized as a legal organization. Thus he deceived his followers.

4.   At present the situation is getting worse in such a way almost reaching to the point of riot and rebellion beyond the power of the church to dissolve. Therefore, may I request your good office to take action against them and dissolve them along with their head quarter of No 11, Pinlon 4, Boyoke Road, Kalaymyo in accordance with the existing laws.

Areas of their movement:

1.     Pinlon, Kalay Church     3. Cikung Church
2.   Taungphila, Tahan Church    4. Sawbuayeshin Church

Beloved aspirants for the Conference status,

      I greet all of you in the name of Jesus. May God’s blessings and helps be upon you that the aspiration for Conference status be achieved through the proper channel soon.
      I believe that the current problems in the church are Satan’s assaults because we allowed him to do so. As one of the leaders of the church, I tried my best to solve this problem but so far I have not yet success. I felt so sorry when I knew that the problem was the result of my mistake of the unconstitutional election of MYUM in 2001 and of the UMM in 2003.
      Though I have a numbers of excuses to justify myself regarding those mistakes, I thought it will be of no use. Due to this I would rather confess and beg you all to forgive me so that the unexpected negative results may be avoided. In fact, I myself did not create those mistakes, but a responsible church official leader did suggest me to do so while such thing was a serious mistake.
      Since it caused schism of the church, nothing beside verbal confession could be done now as a correction of the mistakes. Therefore please have understanding and forgiving spirit upon me and fell free to express what you want me to do as a compensation for the mistakes I have committed. I also promise all of you that no more mistake of such kind will be repeated again in the future.
      I know I am not perfect and worthy to be a leader of the church, but it is God who promotes me to this post of leadership. I heartily beg you to forgive my mistakes and also invite you to return/detour to the only fold of the remnant church.
      Although I am hurt by the correspondences, let it be known by all of you that there is no grudge in my heart against you. I beg and invite you to forgive my mistakes and weaknesses so that we could step forward to the conference status.

      May God help you to have a right decision for the safety of your own soul, Amen.

In His service,

Subject: Acknowledgement to the Government Officials About the Ownership of    Church Properties and the Disbanded Church from World Church     Organization

      With regard to the above mentioned subject, if and when church members are disbanded they no longer have the right to access the church properties such as school buildings, church buildings and all other properties are under the jurisdiction of the section (conference/ local mission) accordingly with the SDA Church Manual p. 318.
      There are two groups of people in Pinlon (11), Kalaymyo SDA Church: the disbanded self-supporting group and the group who have connection with the mission section. These properties belong to the conference/mission regardless of numbers of members. (SDA Church Manual 318).

      The true Church organizational relationships are briefly shown as below:

1. Local Church
2. Conference/Mission
3. Myanmar Union of Adventists
4. Division (Regional office of the world church)
5. General Conference of SDA

      All legitimate organizations are a cooperate body for the ministry regardless Conference (self-supporting) or mission. Since self-supporting group led by Mr. Kai Za Dal have no cooperation with us for 2 years, the Upper Myanmar Mission voted a resolution to disband them in accordance with SDA Church Manual 316.
