NUMBER OF SPACES OPEN
Tickets have been booked and the team is now working on their final preparations. Want to keep up with their experiences? Follow them on the blog or on Instagram! If you had been hoping to join this team and missed the application deadline, we might still be able to add two people to the group. Contact us to let us know you’re interested and we will see if we can make it work.
Myanmar has a Christian population of less than 5%, but a church that is actively working to evangelize the country. We have an opportunity to work alongside the Burmese Christians to share the gospel and disciple young believers. The team will spend one week working at a Christian education center and orphanage putting on a camp-style program during their “summer break” from school. The second and third weeks they will run camps for children and teens from around the country. Attendees are usually a mix of Christian and Buddhist children and teens.
It’s not completely safe where we are going. While Myanmar has made significant progress toward openness and safety, there are still instances of violence against religious and ethnic minorities. We do not take security issues lightly but feel that it is relatively safe for us to work in this area because the violence is primarily in more remote sections than we will be visiting and foreigners are not targeted. You should pray about this and decide if you are comfortable with the security situation before applying for the team.
