Myanmar

By faith, we see vibrant, healthy, and reproducing churches, growing in communities where Christ is least known and crossing ethnicities, languages and hierarchy to worship Jesus together in Myanmar communities.

By faith, we see vibrant, healthy, and reproducing churches, growing in communities where Christ is least known and crossing ethnicities, languages and hierarchy to worship Jesus 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.

Prières

1

Pray for the Lord to call people to Myanmar to share the love of Christ.

2

Pray for the Holy Spirit to soften the hearts of the majority people towards local Christians, most of who are from ethnic minorities. 

3

Pray for strong local churches to be raised up.

4

Pray for the growth and development of the ministry teams. 


Stories from this Country

Loving the oppressor (and not only the oppressed)

The Bible talks about loving the oppressed – the widows and orphans, those who have suffered and have been treated unjustly. But what about loving the oppressors, the ones who have sinned against others? In Myanmar, the Bamar majority people are seen as oppressors and the perpetrators of some of the worst violations to human rights. These are the people Sandra and Tim want to share Jesus with.
