Bouangern “Nya” Pasuevang is an international Global Mission Fellow with the United Methodist General Board of Global Ministries, engaged in a two-year term of service. She is a member of an Evangelical Free church.

The Global Mission Fellows program takes young adults ages 20-30 out of their home environments and places them in new contexts for mission experience and service. The program has a strong emphasis on faith and justice. Global Mission Fellows become active parts of their new local communities. They connect the church in mission across cultural and geographical boundaries. They grow in personal and social holiness and become strong young leaders working to build just communities in a peaceful world.

After earning a diploma/certificate in business management at Souksavath College in Vientiane, Southeast Asia, Nya worked at Starbooks Café, eventually as a training coordinator and mentor. She also volunteered at Shiloh farm in Nepal.

“I joined a discipleship program for a few year before I went to Nepal,” Nya said. “I had the opportunity to read and study the Bible and pray. From that, I knew and understood more about God. In my country, many people are lacking the faith of being a Christian.

“Ever since I got to know Christ,” she continued, “I always feel with joy that I am moving in the right direction God wants me to be and [will] continue to serve the Lord.”

Nya is excited about her faith.

“I love being a Christian and serving God and humanity,” she said. “I have discipled many young people in Southeast Asia through a strong faith to come closer to God. I am happy now because many Southeast Asian people now understand the importance of being a Christian.”

Through Global Mission Fellows, Nya will continue to witness about God. She views the program as “another chance for me to improve on my faith and to come back to my country after two years and share my experiences with the people of Southeast Asia,” she said.

“When I heard about Global Mission Fellows,” Nya added, “and how it is transforming lives of young Christians around the world, my mind tells me this program can help me grow spiritually and share the love of God.”

Nya is confident that Global Mission Fellows will equip her to return home to Southeast Asia and serve more effectively than ever.
