Last month, Heaven’s Family-supported national missionary Lydia led a team of twelve young evangelists to Nam Sam District in Shan State, Myanmar with one goal—to reach the Yin Net people, one of the most unreached tribal peoples in Shan State. About 98% of the Yin Net are animists, meaning that they worship many spirits of nature.
Lydia and her team journeyed far to bring the Yin Net people—spread throughout many villages—the message of a different Spirit. They did this by sharing the gospel door-to-door by day, and conducting Bible studies and new-believer discipleship meetings by night. Due to high illiteracy rates among the Yin Net villagers, Lydia’s team had to communicate everything orally, as most were unable to read gospel tracts or Bibles.
Throughout their week-long effort, many villagers repented of their sins and put their faith in Jesus Christ, recognizing Him as their Creator, Savior and Lord. As evidence of their new births, many villagers destroyed the “spirit houses” in their homes.
Though Lydia and her team have since returned to their home base—a small missionary training center in the city of Taunggyi—they’re praying daily for the many villagers they met, as well as those that they have yet to reach, praising the Lord for the incredible harvest they witnessed because of their obedience to “go.” Let’s stand with Lydia and her team in prayer.
This is a harvest in which we all are participating. Your partnership enables these young missionaries to take the Good News to the multitudes perishing without Christ. Indeed, how beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!
Yours for the Kingdom,
Director, National Missionary Fund
