I praise and give thanks to God for answering our prayers. God is good to us; our weekly programs and my outreach ministry are both doing well. More people are attending Sunday morning services. Some of them came from Yukyi, in a nearby area where I go frequently with my church members to evangelize.
We have reached several people in Yukyi with the gospel message. Among them is a woman named Ma (Ms). Ih Ih Naing, who had accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Lord and Savior this summer. When I met her, she had a problem with debt. She had made a guarantee and borrowed a large amount of money from a family for her friend. But her friend had run away, several months had passed and Ih Ih was not able to contact her friend anymore. Her debtors had asked her to repay the money back. Ih Ih was disappointed and very worried about what to do. It was during this time that I shared with her about Jesus and asked her to pray for her problems. She prayed, Jesus, if you are a true and living God, please solve my problem as soon as possible and I will believe you and worship you. After two weeks, she was able to contact her friend and she repaid the debt completely. So, Ma Ih Ih Naing received Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord.
I conducted a gospel campaign last month at my rental house. About twenty people joined the training, thirteen were non-Christians and they were happy to hear the good news. Pray for these people, that they may one day believe and receive Jesus Christ as their Savior. I thank God for the lunch provided by the Women’s group of Insein BP church.

Personal Testimony of Belief in Jesus Christ:
I was born on March 15, 1984, at Hlaingtazar town. My parents are U Htun Kyi and Daw Tantan. I was raised Buddhist until my mother became a Christian. My mother was the first among our family to believe in Jesus Christ in 2006. Sometimes, my Mom told us about Jesus, but until 2010, I was a Buddhist. Pastor Aih Kham Ko came and shared the gospel with us. After two years of marriage, we had one daughter who has suffered from heart-attacks since she was born. Many times, we had to bring her to the hospital, and we went through many difficulties and hard times. Believers were praying hard for my daughter and my family’s daily living. After that, we had experienced the goodness of God and His salvation. Praise the Lord. My wife and I believed in the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior. Both of us were baptized in 2010 by Pastor Thawng Nei Bil. When I became a Christian, I felt that the Lord was calling me to be a witness for Him and preach to my people, so I became involved in an outreach ministry to non-Christians around us.
I attended an education program from Elementary to High School at No. (3) High School, Hlaingtayar Township, Yangon. I felt in my heart that I had responsibility for my people, specifically those who did not know the love of God and the salvation of Jesus Christ. I have the vision to plant a church in the Yoo Lee area, Hlaingtazar township, where many non-Christians are living, mostly they are poor people. The Burmese tribe has the highest percentage in the area, and there are some small other tribes too. I studied and prayed about this area since last year; my overseer Pastor Thawng Nei Bil, came to investigate this location two times, and I looked for a house to rent. We found one apartment for rent, and I will be moving in January 2020. Please pray for me as I begin as a new church planter under the White Fields Ministry. Thank you very much. May God bless you all.
