Training Up Myanmar

The nation of Myanmar is 90% Buddhist, and Christians there are often mocked, threatened and persecuted. However, the harvest is ripe, and the need for courageous spiritual leaders and missionaries is great. We believe the most effective missionaries are local churches and bodies of believers, because of their familiarity with…

ABC Growth in Myanmar

From shy to confident.

Su Su is a 13-year-old girl who lives in the orphanage and has shown tremendous growth. You may recall me sharing some of her story before! When I first met Su Su over two years ago, she was very distant, did not smile, and had very little self-confidence. Just getting…

Culture Shock

Filling the Home with Love

Just a few weeks ago, as we celebrated the grand opening of our new orphanage in Burma, we were reminded of the harsh reality children face in this country. Moe Moe Aye, a four year old little girl, was recently sold by her grandmother who lost hope in trying to…
