Testimony

I was born in 1968 and grew up in a Buddhist family. I am the oldest son of my parents and 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 and let her know it.

Sometime later I was invited to join 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 with me as much of the Gospel she could. This began to grow in me an 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 and salvation especially the grace of God. It was here that I understand the salvation of Jesus Christ for all men. I joined a church and attended every week and learning more and 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 all of them were bowing down and worshipping idols. I couldn’t sleep at night I thought about where their souls would go 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
