On the USC website I note that the date given is '[not after] 1905' and so I take this to be an example of a Mission chapel during the earlier years of the the Basel Mission's work. 


"Church in Kayin."

This could pass for a quaint little church in a corner of Europe, rather than one in Moiyan.

I will ask my cousin in Moiyan whether she has ever heard of the Basel Mission and whether there is any legacy left visible.
