The wonderful, diverse and needy nation of Myanmar has been one of our focus projects for the last number of months. There are two particular ministry needs being presented to us as a network, and they both require partnership, prayer, and long term involvement. They are: making a difference in the lives of orphans, and training/equipping church planters. In this piece you can find out about the first opportunity: serving orphans in Myanmar. Click here to find out about how you can participate in the training and equipping of native church planters.
The Bible speaks plainly about the authentic spiritual life including caring for the poorest and most vulnerable in society. Children are often in that category, especially when, for whatever reason, their parents cannot care for them. In Myanmar, these children need practical help along with spiritual care and discipleship. This is what Grace Family Home is seeking to do.
The Grace Family Home is a large grey concrete building which houses 30 orphans from around the Yangon region of Myanmar. Grace Family Church raised funds a few years back, with help from Radstock (read more here), to build the facility. They wanted to be able to take in children facing a variety of hardships. The building houses the children, and it also provides the facilities for a local church community.
Twelve of the children are middle school age (11-13), and currently have to walk to school each day in the South Asia heat! It would make a big difference if the children could have a bicycle to get to school and back -- a decent second hand bike can be bought for $70/£50.
And the children need Bibles. Could you invest in Burmese Bibles for the orphans? It is only $7/£5 per Bible. Could we equip them with 30 Bibles? $210/£160 really is a small amount to pay to impact the future of this country as these children grow in the gospel. Imagine these orphans developing into future leaders in God’s church in Myanmar!
Beyond the one-off gifts, as valuable as those are, we want to build lasting partnerships: we long to connect churches around the globe for mission in Myanmar. Your support in ongoing prayer for the impact of the gospel in this place is essential. Imagine this country scattered with outposts of God’s redeemed family -- local churches bringing blessing to the tribes and tongues there as they proclaim the hope of Jesus. You can be part of this beautiful picture too! Please do pray with us for Myanmar, and contact us if you would like to give.
