Zaw Thu Linn Teaches in High Point
About 1 1/2 months ago Zaw Thu Linn began a stateside teaching touring in Los Angeles. A mutual friend told Zar Ni Lwin about his planned preaching tour and so Zaw Thu Linn was invited to come through High Point. Our Chin/Burmese congregation is enjoying 3 days of Bible teaching both mid-day and repeated in the evenings led by this minister from Myanmar.
Zaw Thu Linn is the founder of the Myanmar Youth Rehabilitation Ministry in Yangon. This ministry is involved in drug rehabilitation and Bible Training. Pastor Zaw Thu Linn shared his testimony of growing up as the son of a great Burmese pianist but he became a great addict of Myanmar. In 1989, David Yuma (now deceased) took this young drug addict aside, taught him about Jesus. Zaw Thu Linn converted from Buddhism to Christianity and one year later sensed God’s call to ministry. Then in 1994 Zaw Thu Linn received a vision of the Drug Rehabilitation and Bible Training ministry which he subsequently founded.
This Burmese father of 3 daughters (ages 17, 14 and 10) is married to a S’gaw Karen wife. Together they live and minister in Yangon, Myanmar.
