…. they were unschooled, ordinary men …. they had been with Jesus …. the crippled man healed standing with them – Acts 4:13,14

Raised from the dead – a Burmese pastor’s story

Rev Tam Ki’s story started in Machung, a remote village in the jungles of north-western Burma (Myanmar). In 1973, at about the age of 20, Tam Ki died from a serious illness. According to eye-witnesses, he died in the morning, but woke up in the late afternoon.

The intriguing thing was that he had had no prior knowledge of Christianity, but Tam Ki claimed to have met God, who told him to stop spirit worship, and to worship only God. He was also given the command to tell everyone this. He faithfully obeyed though the villagers became hostile. He did not understand what he was proclaiming till he met a stranger who turned out to be a Baptist pastor from another tribe – it was only then that Tam Ki learned he was a Christian.

Tam Ki gradually learned more about the faith, and through him God performed many miracles including healing and raising the dead. These miracles and Tam Ki’s persistence gradually won over many villagers. His ministry soon spread beyond Machung to other parts of Burma (Myanmar).
