How God changed Khin Win’s life.
“I went to Jung Byaw last week and I heard this story and I share this story to you….so that you will be encouraged and you can share this life changing story to other people as you wish. Thank you very much for your sacrifice for His kingdom growth.” ~ Judah
Khin Win was a Muslim before and she married a Christian man; then she became a believer through the teaching of Pongsar, a preacher in Jung Byaw. Her life was very poor, and she was homeless since her father’s time. She grew up in different homes as a house maid. Her father never had land or a home. She told me that since she was a house maid, she carried water buckets too much when she was young, and her right shoulder became lower than her left shoulder.
Let me share what God has done for her in three parts:
(1) Dizziness problem solved.
Whenever Khin Win rides a bus for a long distance, she gets dizzy and sick for two or three days and cannot eat food. She was afraid to take a long distance bus ride. When you (Keith, Kristy, Ben and Jaimie) came last year (December, 2012), we had a seminar; the Jung Byaw preacher Pongsar invited her and other believers to come and attend the Yangon seminar. Khin Win knew her situation that she could not ride a bus for long distance, and she was hiding in the rice field. But Pongsar went and encouraged her to come with him to the Yangon seminar. Finally she agreed and went with him to the Yangon seminar. She prayed to God that He would protect her from her health problem, especially from dizziness. It is a five hour drive from Jung Byaw to Yangon… and God answered her prayer amazingly. In the highway buses, the driver provides some plastic bags for those who chew betel and for those who get dizzy and vomit. Normally the driver gives one bag to each traveler, but Pongsar asked ten plastic bags for Khin Win just in case. But after traveling one hour, she knew that she had no dizziness. And she was amazed that she had no dizziness until she arrived in Yangon. She learned so many spiritual lessons in the seminar and she was encouraged a lot. She thanked God, you teachers, and Jung Byaw’s preacher Pongsar. She knew that God let her come to that seminar so that His power could move in her life and could change her life. Then she went back to Jung Byaw and on the way back home, she had no dizziness too. Praise the Lord. God is good.
(2) Rice problem solved.
When she came to the Yangon seminar, she left rice for her husband and children for only two days because it was all she could afford. Her trip to Yangon seminar back and forward took four days. When she arrived home, she was surprised to find a big bag of rice, and she asked her husband where the rice came from. He told her that one of her nieces, a Buddhist, came to the rice mill to pound the rice, and she gave us some rice. Hallelujah again. The seminar took her four days back and forward and she prepared rice for two days only for her household, and God provided for them abundantly. We can get a spiritual lesson that if we give our life to God, He will provide what we need.
(3) Landless problem solved.
From her father’s time, they had no land to live on. In America, you call this being homeless. In Myanmar, we call it being landless because if people can have a piece of land, they can build a small bamboo tent. They don’t need a good house. If they don’t have a piece of land, they cannot build even a bamboo tent. Five years ago, the Jung Byaw preacher suggested that we buy land for landless people to live in, and we bought a land with $200. Now the land price has gone up ten times. Khin Win’s family was able to live in that land for a while so that they could live closer to Jung Byaw church and go to the church regularly. Khin Win was tired of moving from place to place in her life like a gypsy. But Khin Win was praying that God would provide her own land. And God answered her prayer. After two years living in the land we bought, they were able to purchase their own small land. And now they can live on that land with a small bamboo tent. Praise the Lord for that. I would like to let you know that God’s power was moving in our seminar last year.
Thank you all who have continued to support us. God bless you.
