A Ministry House for Street Kids
There are 3,000 kids playing—and living—on the streets in Pathein, Myanmar. They and their families represent an unreached people group living near the orphanage that Live Global partner Biak and his wife are directors of. Biak and his wife have a heart—and a plan—to extend their ministry beyond the walls of their orphanage and on to the street.
The goal is to preach the Gospel to an unreached people group by reaching the kids on the street first. By God's grace, the children will trust Jesus and get a good education. In the future, they will be the witness of Jesus and a good model to other people in their life.
Beginning with 15 or 20 kids, Biak and his ministry team plan to teach the kids subjects like English, math, music, and stories from Scripture. They will teach a Bible curriculum called 99 Adventures in the Bible's Big Story. Five days a week, they plan to teach for half a day.
The expectation is that these kids will bring others to the classes and share what they're learning with their families causing multi-generational education and Gospel teaching.
It's our prayer that God would save the students who join Biak's classes and grow them in Godly living and as witnesses throughout Myanmar and the world. Since they will also get a quality education alongside Bible teaching, we expect many of them to go to higher education schools in the future and get influential jobs, which will cause them to be natural leaders in their communities.
Right now, Biak and his wife and team have no building to host the classes they desire to teach. But, they found a piece of land in an ideal location that already has a house, toilet, and water-pump. After some repairs and the addition of a wall and one more toilet, the property would be ready to use.
It would cost $3,000 for land, $1,500 for repairs and additions, and $800 to buy the desks and benches for the first students.
Would you like to be apart of what God is doing in Pathein, Myanmar through this ministry to street kids? Consider helping Biak and his team purchase this land and repair the house so that they can effectively minister to the next generation and an unreached people group.
