Pastor Andrew Rem

Recent Ministry

I met an old woman who is eighty-two years old. Her name is Daw Khin Kyi, and I shared the gospel with her. When I first met her, she refused to listen to me talk about Jesus and salvation. She is a strong Buddhist. I tried my best to continue sharing with her and have visited her three times. She is now interested in listening and starting to understand the salvation of Jesus Christ. I am praying that she believes in Christ and understands salvation before she dies.

  • Pray for Daw Khin Kyi to come to a complete understanding of the gospel and accept Jesus Christ into her heart.

U Ko Nge Thar and his family all profess faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, including their four children. They are preparing for baptism through my teaching about salvation. U Ko Nge Thar’s wife shared her experience and testimony. “My husband became a believer first, but I was still a Buddhist. Several times he asked me to go to church with him, but I always refused. Pastor Rem came and shared about the gospel and eternal life; he prayed for our family’s needs. One day I was touched by his sharing and carefully thought about what he said. I realized I wanted to believe in Jesus Christ as my Savior; then I felt happy and peace in my heart. Jesus answers our prayers. Praise the Lord!”

Give thanks for the salvation for U Ko Nge Thar and his family, pray for them as they prepare to be baptized and their witness to their community.

Due to your prayers, we have seen the Holy Spirit at work bringing new people to join our Sunday worship service and prayer meeting. We have a children’s Sunday school in three locations. Our church has a children’s program on Sunday mornings. On Saturday and Sunday evening, we have our children’s programs at other sites, where the children who attend come from non-believing families. Through our teaching of the children, we gain opportunities to reach their parents with the gospel message.

  • Pray for many more children to join our Sunday school programs.
  • Pray for the children to clearly understand the salvation story and grow in their knowledge of God.
  • Pray for parents to be willing to allow their children to attend the Sunday school programs and to be willing to listen to the gospel message from their children and Pastor Rem.
  • Pray for Pastor Rem’s outreach to the surrounding villages, for safety as he travels and for the opportunity to reach new people with the gospel.
  • Pray for the weekly programs to grow in attendance and for many more people to come to know Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for Pastor Rem’s house repairs that need to be completed after the rainy season.

Pastor Andrew’s Story

Andrew Van Lal Rem serves as a church planter in the Ayeyarwady Delta of Myanmar. This landscape dominated by rivers, streams, and islands is densely populated and mostly agricultural. Pastor Andrew’s ministry can at times be difficult and dangerous due to seasonal monsoons and hostile monks/Buddhists.

His wife and young children have faithfully served alongside him since he started with White Fields in 2016. A faithful evangelist Andrew goes out weekly to share the Gospel, pray for people in the hospital, and disciple members of his congregation. Being a young Pastor, he partners with several White Fields Alumni hosting outreaches in nearby towns and villages. With a heart for his people in addition to sharing the Gospel, he has helped provide clean water and a latrine for his community.
