After decades of strict restrictions under a harsh government regime, it is a new day for Myanmar. A new government creates more opportunities for the Gospel than ever before. The Spirit is moving, and it has the power to transform entire families, villages and even the country. Myanmar is in the middle of a transformation, and we would like to share with you a special need to reach children.
The vast majority of the country is Buddhist. Geographically, Myanmar is cut off from neighboring countries, which is one reason why the nation is so unreached with the Gospel. We are focusing on the Burmese and Shan people groups, and both are less than 1 percent Christian. Myanmar is truly a nation of spiritual need.
We are working with an established local partner to help raise up Christian leaders throughout the country, and many are specially trained for children’s ministry. They are equipped with materials needed to evangelize and disciple in remote areas.
A great way to reach families and communities is to begin with children’s ministry. Kids are learning and responding to the message of Jesus. The new generation is being reached to ensure a bright future for this nation. In their excitement, children share the Gospel with their families, bearing witness to Christ working in their lives! It is the beginning of transformation within the village.
