Pastor Shwe

Recent Ministry

I was invited to the Gonetalapong church to teach at their outreach ministry in the Hlawka garden. We had a beneficial time worshiping God and teaching the gospel to the participants in the program.

I visited several people who live in villages near Yangon city. I preached the gospel in the Phonat Pe, Tawsoon, Cuaikaw, Saikin, Tamankyi, Hleku, and Takhundaing villages. I shared the gospel with individuals and families. Some of the listeners replied positively, but some did not want to hear.
Among them, one man, U (Mr.) Tin had several questions about God. I did my best to answer him and compare the Bible to Buddhist teachings. At last, he said, I want to know more, please come again, and we will discuss this.

  • Pray that I can continue to share the salvation history with him.

Give thanks to God for the villages that the Lord opened for me to share the gospel.

  • Pray for U (Mr.) Tin, who was interested in hearing God’s Word more.
  • Pray for my family’s daily survival.

Pastor Tin Maung Shwe Testimony

I was born in the 1960s and grew up in a Buddhist family. I am the oldest son of my parents, and I am married and have one daughter who is now 13 years old. My wife and I were staunch Buddhists, my wife worked as a middle school teacher, and I owned a small business. In 2005 White Fields Pastor Aih Kham Go came to our neighborhood to share the Gospel, and my wife stopped to talk to him. The Lord gripped her heart, and she decided to become a follower of Jesus. I was agitated when she told me she had become a Christian.

Sometime later I was invited to join the gospel rally and decided to hear about this “living, and true” God. But that night as I listened I felt something in my heart. My wife prayed for me and shared the Gospel. This began to grow interested to hear more about the story of God and His salvation.

In April 2005 I joined a gospel camping trip that was organized by the Insein Biblical Presbyterian Church. We were taught about sin, salvation, and the grace of God. It was here that I understood the salvation of Jesus Christ for all men. I joined a church and attended every week; I started learning more about God. After a few weeks, I professed Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and was baptized on December 25, 2006.

After my baptism I looked at my friends and neighbors in my community, many of them were bowing down and worshiping idols. I couldn’t sleep at night and thought about their souls and what would happen to them when they died. That thought compelled me to know I have a responsibility to tell them the Gospel of Jesus Christ. If they knew the true God, they could worship and adore Him. But, I knew for myself that I needed to understand more about God and His words. From that time I participated in the ministry of God in the church and mission field. I now pastor a church No. 20 ward of Hlaingtazar town. Praise the Lord for his goodness, power, and authority! I thank the Lord for saving me.
