About Churches Rebuild After Devastating Flood

In July 2015, there was a record rainfall during the annual monsoon in Myanmar (formerly Burma) that resulted in major floods that devastated much of the northwestern part of the country. Whole villages were washed away while others were leveled by landslides. Complicating the restoration of communities, the agricultural economy of the region was devastated in a country that is already one of the poorest in the world. The Evangelical Baptist Conference (EBC), a fellowship of churches in Myanmar, was one of the ones affected.

As part of the EBC's ongoing development and rebuilding effort, Live Global, in partnership with The Kaifa Group, has identified three churches that have rather unique circumstances and particular needs for the construction of new church buildings.

Two of these church building projects are in villages that have been relocated by the government. The displaced farmers in these villages have struggled to establish new livlihoods that would enable them to rebuild their churches. The third church building project is a 3-year-old church plant established by a Myanmar national missionary who is supported by EBC. The church has taken root follwoing the relief work that was done in a village that previously had no gospel witness.

While this overall project seeks to complete the construction of a church building in each of these three villages before the next monsoon season, the project also seeks to address the respective development needs so that these three congregations can become self-sustaining and continue to thrive and grow without reliance on continued foreign funding.
