WHAT WE DO
This project endeavours to supplement local indigenous giving to national evangelists in an effort to stimulate primary mission work in rural Burma.
WHAT YOU CAN DO
Burma's minority groups face considerable pressure both from Buddhist groups as well as from government opposition. Many struggle. Churches have been burned to the ground and believers continue to face obstacles at work and school. There are added problems within the Church. Strong, central control in Churches has slowed down much of the evangelistic work in Burma.

Cost: £20 a month will help top-up local Burmese giving to stimulate missionary efforts among minority groups. Give to Burma ministries here.
PRAY FOR
Thank God for individual believers and families from among minority groups who have come to the Lord. They risk their very lives. Pray for a breakthrough by the Holy Spirit among each of the resistant groups. Pray too for revival among traditional Churches.
