“We have received a new guitar for Praise and Worship. After that, we also got another type of sewing machine and 20 sets of chairs. We are very grateful and thankful”, said the Pastor. His name is Tual Za Kim, Kim Pu. His parents are U Cin Khaw Kam and Daw Ngek Za Awi. He is the eighth son among the nine children. He was born in Dolluang village, Tedim township on 7 February, 1977. He grew up and finished High School from Tedim. When he turned 16, he went to MaiSho to work in the mines because mining was so popular then. While he was still working in the mines, he became a slave to drugs, a drug addict.
One night, while he was still a serious drug addict, he had an unusual dream. In his dream, he met Jesus and He warned him, “Son, if you do not repent and turn away, you will not go to heaven.” When he asked Jesus to take him along, he heard Jesus said, “You must be changed first” and he woke up. A month later he dreamt again that Jesus had come back and that the earth was trembled and shaken. This time, the dream actually frightened him a lot but he did not change. Later, he was appointed as youth leader in MaiSho R.A.G Church and yet he was till the same. After that, he was yet again appointed as a deacon. He was still a slave to drugs as always and eventually his life was destroyed miserably.
Around that time, a minister from Yangon came and conducted Salvation seminars and Night Revival Crusades. His name is U Thang Do Mang. In January 2006, he came along with that minister to Yangon. He got saved because of the continual sharing of the Gospel by the minister. He shared his salvation experience, “I was weeping because I understood the amazing grace of Jesus that saved such a wretched man like me.”
After staying for 2 years in Yangon, he served in a Church as a worship leader for 6 months. And again, he served as an assistant pastor in another Church. After that he became a member of Full Gospel Assembly and attended FGBTC. He got a vision from God that he will be used by Him. However, it did not happen immediately. He tried again to go abroad due to financial difficulty but nothing happened. These failures led him to depression to the point of committing suicide. He put a rope around his neck and jumped down.
He was unconscious for some time. Then God spoke to him, “My Son, you do not own your life, you belong to me. I am going to use you to build my Church.” He committed his life for the ministry and to God from that time on.He went to distant places to preach the Gospel from March, 2010. Then, he served at Kalaw FGA for about a month. Even though he was inspired to minister in Aung pan, he refused by giving lack of finance or education as a reason. God helped him to be obedient and prepared everything for him. He started as zero but Jesus put everything he needed in front of that zero.
“My wife is good at sewing and we received a simple sewing machine as present. We have received a new guitar for Praise and Worship. After that, we also got another type of sewing machine and 20 sets of chairs. We are very grateful and thankful”, said the Pastor. Every week, they have 10 to 20 non-believers joining the Church to whom they share the Gospel. Some sick people got healed after praying for them. There are also people delivered from all kinds of mental struggles. Now, they have Home Cells in two places.
Pastor shared about how God answered prayers.
“There was a woman who always ran away from home because of her husband’s violent behavior whenever he was drunk. He always brought troubles. So, we prayed for the family every month in fasting and prayer meeting and the husband was changed and became a godly man. He even participate in fasting and prayer meeting. They now become a very pleasant and happy family.”
