World Watch List Challenge – #23 Myanmar

June 16, 2014 by Open Doors in Asia

Myanmar Twenty-three-year-old Cho* was the only Christian in her household. She surrendered her life to Christ when Nu*, an attendee of Open Doors’ Standing Strong Through the Storm training, shared the gospel with her family. “When I was 12, Teacher Nu, who came from the Chin state, went to our house, and told my family who Jesus was and what He did. After that, I attended the Sunday school in her house church every week. Year after year, I grew to know Jesus more. Teacher Nu taught me about Jesus and the Bible.” “In my early Christian life, I was not accepted, and was not treated as a daughter,” Cho recalled. Though the gospel was shared with her parents, they remained Buddhists. “I wasn’t treated as a normal person, and I was disappointed.” Aside from her hardships at home, Cho also faces persecution in school. “My classmates didn’t accept me as a Christian at first. They didn’t want to be friends with me. I used to run to Teacher Nu’s home to ask her for prayers. As some of them have gotten to know me, they have harassed me less.” “Even though I have difficulties concerning my family and education, I praise God, and I listen to His Words, along with my teacher, who is always there to inspire and encourage me.” *Names, photographs and other information have been changed for security purposes
