WATCH: Francis Chan Announces He Will Move to Myanmar as a Missionary in 2020 Because He Feels Like He is ‘Fishing in the Same Pond’

Francis Chan says he and his family will move to Myanmar in February as missionaries.

Chan made his announcement during a sermon at Azusa Pacific University on Wednesday. He shared with the audience about a recent trip he and his family took to Myanmar, going “from hut to hut” sharing the Gospel with the help of a translator.

It was on the plane ride home from this trip that Chan and his wife made the decision to move.

“I describe it like this: I feel like I’ve been fishing in the same pond my whole life and now there’s like thousands of other fishermen at the same pond, and our lines are getting tangled and everyone’s fighting over stupid things, and one guy tries some new lure and we go, ‘Oh he caught a fish; let’s all try his method!’ And it just feels like, what are we all doing here?

“What if I’ve heard of a lake that’s like a 5-mile hike away, and no one’s fishing it. And they’re saying, ‘Man, the fish are biting—just throw a hook in there and they’ll go for it!’ Man, I’ll make that 5-mile hike if I love fishing.
