6421-916-Joy House Ministry Center

SUMMARY Almost 6 years ago, the Joy House began as an outreach ministry of The Grace Place in the village of DaKangLang, a rural community that had no church or Gospel outreach. We have seen God work in significant ways, as kids have come to know Jesus. We have outgrown the original Joy House, both in terms of space and ministry versatility, and have moved to the second floor of the Dodd’s recently completed house in the community. This space requires further construction and outfitting in order to be used effectively to meet the needs of this ministry. VISION The…

6477-912-Street Children Ministry

Teaching English through a language center and working with street children will allow me to build relationships where I can share the hope and love of Jesus with those whom the Father calls. Through these relationships, we seek to begin Discovery Bible Studies, which in turn have the potential to begin a Disciple-Making Movement among the unreached and unengaged people groups in the area. There are at least ten tribes that we are targeting to see a gospel movement. The major challenge is overcoming the false teachings of the dominant religion, which is mixed with animistic beliefs.

THE PROBLEM: There are 2.3 billion children in our world today. Two thirds of them are still waiting to hear about Jesus and become all that God created them to be. Myanmar is a Buddhist Nation with 23 million children.
