Raising Children in Burma

Su Su is one of the orphans we are raising in southern Burma. She has big dreams and wants to become a doctor one day. She’s smart and makes good grades and loves to skip rope with the other girls. Recently Su Su shared her favorite scripture with our team:

Psalm 1: 1-3 “Blessed is the man Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, Nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law he meditates day and night. He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper.

This verse caught our attention when she shared it with us, because this is exactly what happens when we take these orphans in and raise them under the counsel of God’s Word with caretakers that love them. This children’s home is overseen by one of our key Burmese pastors and his family who we have supported for several years. The children we care for are not only receiving nutritious food, proper clothing, shelter and an education but they are being mentored into a new kind of life— one in which they have influence, a new identity, and love. This home provides the opportunity for these children to have what they need to pursue their dreams of being doctors, engineers, teachers, lawyers, and military generals for the kingdom of God in Burma.

Living in this home will protect these orphans from the very real dangers facing them everyday.

Education is not available for free to children in Burma, and therefore it is often out of the question for children that rarely make enough money to eat. Without education, these children will not have the tools they need to escape the cycle of poverty that often led to their abandonment.

Orphaned children in Burma are among those who are at high risk of becoming the next human trafficking victims. In this 32 billion dollar a year industry, enslaving more than 27 million people, traffickers often seek to take advantage of those in desperation, offering them promises of protection, education and a better life.

We can protect these children from these deceptive ploys, giving them an opportunity to receive a Christ-centered education in a safe home.
