WORSHIPPING TOGETHER IN TRUTH
BY FAITH, WE WORK TO SEE:
Vibrant, healthy, and reproducing churches, growing in communities where Jesus is least known and crossing ethnicities, languages, and hierarchy to worship Him together in Myanmar communities.
Communities where He is least known
Buddhist majority communities
The main ethnic group in Myanmar live primarily in the Irrawaddy River basin and speak Burmese, which is the official language of Myanmar. The majority are Theravada Buddhists. They practice Buddhism along with nat (spirit) worship, which predates Buddhism. They try to appease the nats in order to gain protection from other evil spirits.
Communities in the hill country
More than 30 communities where Christ is not known are scattered around the central hill country. One town is strategically located among these farming communities. We desire to help provide a means of work and skills to these communities, including business.
Pray for the Lord to call people to Myanmar to share the love of Christ.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the majority people towards local Christians, most of who are from ethnic minorities.
Pray for strong local churches to be raised up.
Pray for the growth and development of the ministry teams.
