MEET THE TEAM
Nam was a Chinese Buddhist. Growing up she was taught Buddhism in school, and she went to many ceremonies and rituals. For generations, Nam’s family practiced Buddhism. When she was a young girl her mother took her to visit three monks to tell her future. All three monks said the same thing, if she didn’t do good works by the time she was 25, she would end up in a coma or die. She tried doing many good works but nothing improved.
One day she discovered that her brother, his wife and children all had AIDS. When he passed away, he left his whole family to her. Nam’s brother entrusted her with his daughter. Her niece was getting worse and she was going to die. During that time, Nam was invited to attend a crusade. Nam listened closely to the message that night, and she became a child of God. During the prayer for healing she put her hand on her niece, and she felt God’s power flow like electricity through her hand into her niece’s body. When they arrived home, Nam’s niece grabbed a plate and spoon and said, “Mommy I’m hungry!” At that moment Nam knew that the Lord had healed her!
Nam’s niece is still strong and healthy, and they both faithfully attend the Bang Bo church. Nam is part of the worship team and is also heavily involved in evangelism and follow up programs. She has grown and has become one of the main leaders in the church. Nam has a Shepard’s heart; she is always among the people. She builds relationships with those in the community and shares the story of Jesus and His goodness.
