Application Deadline

February 8, 2020

Status Update



The 2019 team had an awesome time of ministry in Myanmar. We saw God work in some very unexpected and amazing ways. Registration is now open for Myanmar 2020! Dates are still tentative, but if you are super planning ahead (we love people who plan ahead) you can go ahead and get your application in for next year.

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.
