About the Ministry

Suan and Lyn have been sharing the Gospel with Buddhists and animists since 2009. Now in 2021, they plan to extend their ministry to villages in a southern state of Myanmar.

Suan and Lyn have used “The Ancient Path,” a small Gospel booklet that explains God’s plan for mankind in a way that is appealing to people groups in Southeast Asia.

Suan says “’The Ancient Path’ is the plow that breaks up the hard heart.” They also use other literature along with small gatherings to explain who Jesus is.

How a Serious Blow Became a Serious Blessing

Meet the Leaders: Suan and Lyn (pseudonym)

“I think about the death rate in my country and I can’t help but think, ‘I have to go.’”—Suan

There are tens of thousands of villages in Myanmar where no missionary and evangelist have ever been and the Gospel has not been preached there. In 2009, Suan and his wife were called to reach rural Burmese Buddhists who had no idea who Jesus is.

They have been living in a region where there are over 5 million Buddhists, spirit-worshipers, and animists. Suan and Lyn have 4 daughters.

Funding Priorities

Help send Suan to teach new believers in a village - $50
Supply agricultural tools and materials to help in the farming project - $25.00
Resources to expand food production for church members and evangelistic outreach - $25.00

Prayer Requests

  • Suan and his wife started a church in their home which quickly outgrew the living room and now meets in a large “garage” outdoor parking area next to the house. The group continues to grow, and new believers are excited about evangelism. Pray for the neighbors to look favorably on this large group gathering.
  • Pray for safety and the ability to continue reach unreached villages in spite of the hostilities in the country.
