Ying’s Story

BurmaA young girl from Burma

Ying lives in Burma where most of the people are Buddhist. One day, a traveling Christian preacher came to her town and began sharing the gospel with Ying’s neighbor. Ying overheard the preacher talking. She drew closer to hear more, and she began asking him questions. Ying thought about his answers and later gave her life to Christ.

Ying lived with her Buddhist aunt because her mother died when she was very young, and her father left her. After Ying became a Christian, she began attending a Bible school to learn how to be a missionary. But one day, her aunt and cousins locked her in the house and refused to let her go to school. They told her if she does not quit being Christian, they will not feed her anymore, and they will beat her and send her to a faraway village where there are no Christians.

Ying ran away from home to follow Christ and left her relatives behind. The Voice of the Martyrs is helping her start a new life. But she needs prayer to stay strong.

Read Matthew 19:29. Why might this verse be a comfort to Ying?

  1. The verse might have been a comfort to Ying because she had to leave her home to follow Christ, so she knows that, that promise is for her. 🙂

  2. Hi!!! I’m new to this website, and I’m a believer as well!! And God suddenly told me to come to the Voice of the Martyr’s website and instantly clicked on Kids of Courage!!! Wow!!! What a courageous young women of God!!! 🙂 I’ll be praying for this little one! I know what it’s like to be young at heart and not having people listen to me about Jesus!!! Ying God has an amazing, beautiful future for me just like He has one for me!!!:) You’re in my prayers, girl!!!:)

    I was mocked at when I was in High-School for having a small voice and being a Christian and just remember: You are not invisible you have a voice that deserves to be heard and just like JESUS CHRIST our REAL MESSIAH commanded His Disciples: “Do not stop in letting the little children come to me!” We must reach to the children so that the world will know that Jesus Lives!!! Just remember the little chu-chu train: “I think I can, I think I can, I know I can, I know I can for the Kingdom of JESUS CHRIST!!! Who lives for eternity in Heaven!”

    Just remember 1 Timothy 4:12 let know one look down on your youthfulness but in speech, conduct and purity and show yourselves as an example to those who do not believe!!:) 🙂


    Christa 🙂

  5. Libby Ann, thank you for the question.

    People in countries served by The Voice of the Martyrs are in unique situations. Some are on the run and do not have mailboxes. Others live in secret safe houses or camps. In some countries, it is dangerous for Christians to receive personal mail from Christians in other countries. It can take two days’ work in the fields to earn enough money to buy one postage stamp in some poor countries.

    However, readers are encouraged to write letters to Christian prisoners through PrisonerAlert. Bibles Unbound also offers a way to bless people in other countries through the mail. In addition, The Voice of the Martyrs’ newsletter occasionally offers opportunities to send cards or letters to Christians in other countries, which VOM workers deliver to the Christians, but the recipients of the letters do not send replies.

    Participants who help support pastors in restricted nations through VOM’s PSP program may receive one letter a year from the pastor they support.

  6. I also would love to write to her. But i understand if this is not possible. I have done lots through VOM, I have been sending letters to people in prison, and I have also sponsored a little girl called Oliver from Uganda. And I am very thankful that Richard Wurmbrand started the VOM. =)

  7. I am new here and I am going to be praying for her and for others as well!!! VOM is a great thing and I’m glad she is being helped! Thank you VOM for all you do!!!
