MYANMAR Bible School 1802
Not very long ago this country was closed to the Gospel. Formerly known as Burma, it is a land of shining gold pagodas, colourful rice paddies, temple ruins and mountain ranges. Boot Camp training just out of Hamilton in the heart of the Waikato Province, will terminate with a Commissioning Service, after which this team will bus to Auckland and leave from the International Airport for Bangkok, capital of Thailand. From there you fly on to Yangon, Myanmar‘s largest city from whence an hour and a half’s drive will take you to the Bible School where your project is located. Here on the outskirts of the city you will be building a staff house for the Bible School. While there you’ll be able to stay in dorms built by another Teen Missions team. Enjoy fellowship with the students, and join them as they witness to the people living close by. You can also help them with their English! Some help too, may be given to a nearby orphanage which is building a chapel for worship, not only for their resident orphans, but also for the community. You will find the children fascinated with the puppets and balloons you will use to tell those Gospel stories, skills that you’ll learn while in Boot Camp classes. A visit to the city could take you to a worship service in one of the churches founded by Adoniram Judson, one of the country’s first missionaries. There are also famous pagodas, war cemeteries, parks and markets to be explored. Returning to NZ, you’ll make your way to Hamilton for Debrief, which includes fun and fellowship with other teams as well as classes to help you as you go on home.
