From a Buddhist nation to singing for Jesus


Help the next generation advance the Kingdom


Since becoming a believer as a teenager growing up in the predominantly Buddhist nation of Myanmar, Zam Muan has dreamed of using his passion for music to share the gospel.


This summer, he is one of 25 OneWay interns, all using their gifts and talents to advance the Kingdom through ministry. With his guitar always nearby and a heart full of worship, Zam is starting to fulfill the vision God gave him as he leads worship at community nights, worship events and staff meetings.


“It’s really cool to worship with everyone,” Zam said, “because we all have the same goal and the same mission, and my part is to help connect people to the source of that mission, Jesus.”



Along with his two dozen young adult co-workers, Zam is helping complete a huge goal this summer to create 100 Prayercast videos to rally believers to pray for the nations of the world. Other interns are growing their professional skills as they work on writing projects, social media, websites, administrative tasks and more.


Zam and the rest of our young adult summer staff are working this summer in faith that God will provide for their needs through generous partners like you. How can you help equip the next generation for Kingdom-advancing work?


Growing in faith


Since OneWay’s beginning, we’ve had a passion to activate young people to use their gifts and talents to bring the gospel to the nations. Each summer, young people fill our headquarters where they are mentored professionally and gain a broader vision for the world. This summer’s young adult team members have joined us from 12 colleges, seven states and three countries.


Zam’s story began in Myanmar (Burma) where he grew up under the loving care of his grandmother, a Christian in a population where almost 80 percent of the people are Buddhist. After years of learning about the Bible and hearing the gospel at church, Zam accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior in 2016.


Just a few months later, Zam’s family moved to the United States. Zam and his brother, Mangmang, were both talented musicians, who dreamed of serving Christ through music together. However, Mangmang suffered from a serious health condition and neither could afford any instruments. Zam and Mangmang prayed for God to provide, and the Make-A-Wish Foundation miraculously answered their wish! Sadly, Mangmang never got to play his instrument, because he passed away while the instruments were being delivered.


After his brother’s passing, Zamstruggled in his relationship with God. “The Lord was faithful to teach me how I will need to be faithful to Him,” he said. “He helped me recall the memories with my brother on how we will need to serve God. Since then, my eyes are fixed on serving God with music.”

Serving this summer with OneWay Ministries

This summer, Zam, who will be a senior at Taylor University, is serving God with OneWay as a music and video intern. During the work week, he acquires footage and edits videos for Prayercast, and he helps lead worship for staff meetings and community lunches. But outside of the office, you can usually find Zam with a guitar, leading worship everywhere he goes — even in the rain!


“I tell everyone about what OneWay is doing,” Zam said. “I am so proud of OneWay and Prayercast, and I share it everywhere I go.”


After he graduates from college, Zam’s dream is to eventually go back to Myanmar and build a 24/7 Prayer House with “many rooms, a chapel, and a huge conference room where prayer and worship will not cease.” We are thankful for Zam, and we can’t wait to see how God uses him to grow the Kingdom in the years to come.


Invest in the next generation

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with Zam and the rest of our young adults? Each of our interns is working to raise $2,000 to cover rent and living expenses, as well as another $4,000 to provide a small salary for their work this summer. Together, we can help the next generation fulfill the Great Commission for the Kingdom of God!



God has graciously provided $64,500 through generous partners to support our summer interns. We are praying for another $22,325 to help our interns pay for living expenses and a salary for their work.
