Last month, we had a two-day gospel training with twenty people. Daw (Mrs.) Thein and Daw (Mrs.) Sui receive Jesus and their personal Savior and Lord. They were ecstatic. They exclaimed, “We belong to Jesus, Praise the Lord!” They have joined my church as members. Pray that they will stand firm in their new faith and overcome all temptations. We are praying for more members and ask the Lord to bless us with a hundred church members by the next year.
Due to your prayer help, our ministry is doing well. Our weekly services are meeting regularly, including prayer meetings, home cells, and worship services. Every Sunday we have forty people in attendance.
- Pray for the new believers, Thein and Sui, to grow in their spiritual life.
- Pray also for Daw (Mrs.) Hting and Daw (Mrs) Htan who came to faith a couple of months ago, please pray that their faith will grow.
Pastor Kui Thang’s son recently passed away. He was twelve years old but physically disabled. It was hard for his parents as they cared for him. Now the Lord has taken him and is caring for him. At the funeral service, I had the opportunity to share the Word of God from John 11:24-25, “Martha answered, “I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day.” Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die.” Some non-Christians attended the service, some from the surrounding villages. According to our customs, when people die, the neighboring communities also come to encourage and support the family.
- Pray for Pastor Kui Thang’s family as they lost their son, pray for the Lord to give them peace as they continue to do their duties.
- Pray for comfort from God’s Word.
- Pray for the jobs of my members to provide the income they may purchase their daily food.
- Pray for opportunities to reach more people with the message of the gospel.
Pastor Tin Saw Ministry
Tin Saw is a church planter high in the mountains of Chin State, Myanmar. He ministers near the township of Kanaplet which is one of the most isolated towns in the state. The people are destitute and local infrastructure remains underdeveloped. The village he lives in is home to subsistence farmers and traders who live in extreme poverty compared to the rest of Myanmar. An additional challenge is the numerous subtribe dialects and languages which differ from village to village. Pastor Tin started the church in 2016 and has seen the believers mature and grow. He and the church members face opposition and adversity from Buddhist leaders and cyclones that affect their area yearly. Nevertheless, Pastor Tin continues being faithful to the Lords call on his life and regularly engages his people and region with the Gospel.
