Status Update



Sadly, there was a military coup in Myanmar on February 1. We have heard that international flights will be closed until the end of May, which would make it impossible to take a team there this spring. We are monitoring the situation and will update this status as things become more clear. Please pray for the people of Myanmar!

Team Activities

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.
