NUMBER OF SPACES OPEN
The application deadline is officially past, and we are booking tickets for the team. However, we could really use one more person, so if you want to apply late, we will do everything we can to make it possible for you to go. The sooner you apply, the better!
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.
At least 16 years old
In agreement with the Global Encounters statement of faith
Previous ministry experience working with children and teens is helpful, but not required.
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.
