Pastor Tha Khup with Church Members!

Greetings in the name of Jesus Christ. I am happy to share that the Lord healed several patients physically and spiritually. Daw (Mrs.) Awi suffered from womb cancer and had received treatments at the hospitals without success. She came to me for help. I prayed hard for her recovery and treated her for one week. The Lord healed her. Awi was ecstatic and praised God in our Sunday worship service. She shared her testimony of the goodness of God towards her. Praise the Lord!

Daw (Mrs.) Lai lived in Hmawbi town, Yangon division and suffered from the torment of an evil spirit. Some people said it was because of the magician. She was sent to several hospitals including Yangon, Mandalay, and even in India but did not recover. Whenever her sickness arose, she tried to kill her family members, even her husband and then would be unconscious for a few days. She was brought to me in June, and I prayed hard for her, telling her about Jesus every day. It was amazing that the Lord healed her. Lai shared her testimony to our Sunday worship service as follows: “Praise the Lord for healing me from my terrible disease. I had no hope for healing because we went to many hospitals and received multiple treatments, but I never received healing. I thank God that someone told me about Pastor Tha Khup, a man of God who can pray for healing for the sick. I was excited to see him, and I went to Saw Myo with my husband. I had great hope. The Lord used Pastor Khup to bring healing, and I am now completely healed. Praise the Lord. I will worship and praise God for the rest of my life.”

Daw (Mrs) Ko is one of my church members who was suffering from lung disease. She spent a month at Kanpalet hospital, getting worse to the point of death. I asked her to come back, and she returned to Saw Myo. I tried my best to treat her and prayed hard for her recovery. I thank God for her healing, and she can attend our Sunday services. Praise the Lord.

Praise the Lord for bringing healing through prayer.

  • Pray for the women who were healed from their physical illnesses to give glory to God and remain faithful to God throughout their lives.
  • Pray for their witness to non-believers.
  • Pray for Pastor Khup’s witness to non-believers who come to him seeking medical treatment.
  • Pray for more people to come to know the Lord through this ministry.

During my outreach ministry, I met Daw (Mrs.) San, who is a leader of the Buddhist (Gawpakah) in her village. I met and discussed with her about religion, comparing spirit worship and the worship of the living God. It was a good conversation, and she was almost convinced to follow Christ; I will continue to visit her and share about Jesus again. I met several other non-believers. The Lord has opened doors to reach new people in our area, thank you for your prayers.

  • Pray for San to trust in Jesus Christ as her Savior and Lord.
  • Pray that our members will be good disciples of God and praise the Lord for their trust in God displayed in their daily lives.

Last month I went to Yangon and met with Pastor Thawng Nei Bil and discussed the construction work on our church building in Saw Myo. Our church members took an offering, and we received the building funds from White Fields to hire workers from Yangon City that are also church members. We ordered the materials, which were about four thousand US dollars. Pastor Thawng borrowed the remaining money from his cousin without interest. Praise the Lord.

The construction is going well, and our church members are excited. We have prayer meetings every night and are praying for the completion of the building.

  • Pray for the progress in construction and for God’s provision for all the needs for its completion.
  • Pray for the church members, as it is the rainy season, many people have gotten sick, and some have died.
  • Pray for protection and health form God.

Thank you for your faithfulness in supporting me financially and through prayer. May God bless you.

Pastor Tha Khup Story

Now, something to understand is that when Pastor Khup enters a new village, he looks for a family that is open to the Gospel and when invited he will stay for two or three days explaining the scriptures to them. Strangers eager to hear how there is hope in Jesus will ask him to return and tell them more.

The people of this region are Buddhist. Buddhism is mostly a religion of rules, most people born into and are under a burden of perfection they can never keep. The weight of never being able to get ahead by doing more good then wrong leaves them in a state of hopelessness. People in these villages without electricity, limited phone access, and no internet coupled with government censorship have no way of hearing about a God who loves them, sacrificed Himself, and rose from the dead. This is the area that Tha Khup and others like him work.

Tha Khup is married and has one son Solomon, who joined White Fields as a church planter in 2017.
