About Evangelizing Unreached People Groups with Tungpi

"My goal is to go, reach the unreached, and make disciples," Tungpi said.

About 95% of Myanmar nationals are following a god other than the God of the Bible. The vast majority of them would identify as Buddhist and some would identify with other religions. Out of this number, 84% have immediate no access to the Good news about Jesus Christ in their communities.

But God has saved many people from Myanmar already. And He's given them a desire in their hearts to reach unsaved people in their country with the Gospel. In Myanmar culture, Gospel booklet distribution is one of the most effective ways to build relationships and open people's hearts to the Gospel. Tungpi and his team mostly use the Gospel booklet called "The Ancient Path," which has been translated into Burmese among many other Asian languages.

Meet the Leader: Tungpi

tungpi Tungpi has Christian parents who faithfully shared the Word with him from a young age, and Tungpi accepted Christ during childhood. He decided to serve the Lord vocationally after high school, so he pursued a Bachelor's of Theology degree and a Master's of Divinity degree. After he graduated with both, he worked at Faith Baptist Theological Seminary (where he received his M. Div) as a professor for a few years.

While Tungpi was serving the Lord at the seminary, he met a man who had a deep burden for lost souls in Myanmar. This man was passionate about spreading the gospel in the fastest, broadest, and most effective way. Tungpi was so motivated by him for spreading the gospel in Myanmar that he joined in, reaching out to lost souls and going to many unreached villages to share the Gospel by showing evangelistic films and distributing "The Ancient Path."

Eventually Tungpi decided to leave the seminary so that he could do evangelism among unreached people groups full-time. He is still burdened to get "The Ancient Path" translated into the languages of the minority peoples in Myanmar because many of them don't even have a single book of the Bible or any other Gospel literature.
