May Thin Khai
The government in Burma would like everyone in their country to follow Buddhism. So they limit the number of Bibles and Christian books that are brought into Burma. Some Burmese people live their entire lives without ever reading a Bible.
May Thin Khai is a Buddhist girl in Burma. Her grandmother is a Christian, and she teaches May about Jesus. May would like to become a Christian. But it would not be easy because almost everyone she knows is a Buddhist.
May shared her story with workers from The Voice of the Martyrs. Read what she said below, and pray that she will follow Jesus.
My grandma is a Christian. My parents do not want me to go to church, but sometimes I go with my grandma. She teaches me to memorize Bible verses. I am not a Christian yet, but I do believe in God. Here is the reason why.
One day I accidentally broke the ruler my mom had given me as a present. She is very strict. I was restless and worried about what she would do. So on the way home from school, I started to recite Psalm 46. It was one of the things my grandma had taught me.
