Pressing on in Faith
Have you ever had a burden so strong, you decided to change your lifestyle? Suan and Lyn felt a burden towards their own people, the Burmese. Most of them are Buddhists. In fact, Suan and Lyn were not only burdened, but they decided to take action. They have dedicated 12 years of their life to make these people a priority. It is admirable how much Suan and Lyn have sacrificed. However, in the midst of admiration, this calling is not always easy. Due to this being a specific calling, there are challenging times. Regardless of the struggles Suan and Lyn have faced, they continue pressing on.
The death rate of the villages in Myanmar is what attracted the couple to help. Furthermore, there had been a lack of missionaries and evangelists. Suan and Lyn have been giving out Ancient Path Gospel booklets. Over 600 of these booklets have been given out. These booklets explain the Gospel. The Ancient Path Gospel booklets have been a major success. They have been so successful that thousands of Asians have read them. Since so many have taken a liking, this booklet is now offered digitally so that even those who can't read can know the Good News.
The thought of death and his people going to Hell tormented Suan. Both Suan and Lyn had a choice. With such passions and burdens, they needed to decide what to do with such strong desires. After seeking guidance from God, it was clear what they were to do: reject the regular civilized life and do the extraordinary. Even though they favored something other than the so called "regular lifestyle," they still enjoy another job. That's the enjoyable job of being parents. They have four children. Suan and Lyn value their faith and sharing the Gospel, but they also treasure family.
“How then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?” (Romans 10:14)
