Recent Ministry

Thank you for your prayers and financial support, due to your prayers, my ministry is thriving. The past month was the worst month of rain in Myanmar and caused many tropical diseases to hit Yangon City and parts of Myanmar.

I reached out to the surrounding areas and shared the gospel. I went to Taphazar Gone village in Htantapyin township and met with U (Mr.) Hla’s family. It was their first time hearing the gospel, they said, we like it but will think more about it. I also went to the Kyotaw village, Ukpheo village, and Ngiang Laypyin village and distributed tracts. I met some young people and shared with them briefly about the gospel. I pray for the Lord to continue to speak to their hearts so they may be interested in knowing more about salvation history.

  • Pray for the people who heard the gospel to be curious to know more and come to faith in God.

I traveled to the Takhun Daing and Yarzard villages and distributed tracts. I prayed for the people to come to know Jesus Christ and His salvation history. When I went to Padan village, I met U (Mr.) Zaw and Ma (Miss) Hnin’s family and shared the gospel with them. One old retired monk was there, and I discussed with him about Jesus and the creation of God. I compared the beliefs and perspectives of eternal life, contrasting Buddhism, and Christianity. I told him about the salvation history. The monk tried to explain the way of Buddha. Lastly, I shared John 14:6, where Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man comes to the Father except through me.” I will try to meet with them again.

  • Pray for another opportunity to meet these people and explain more about salvation and God’s Word.
  • Pray for them to understand salvation and their need for a Savior that is only through Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for God to open the hearts of the people that they may hunger for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
  • Pray for the daily survival and needs of the believers to be met.
  • Pray for my family.

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.
