Who are these children? They are children with extreme needs, and without this home, they would not have an opportunity to get education beyond grade school or middle school.
Some of these children are true orphans. They have no mother or father. Some of these children only have one parent. Some are children that come from homes of missionary pastors that are working in challenging situations with very little money to support their children. All are needy.
We help in three ways:
1. We help with a safe home, good food, and provide loving caretakers. The caretakers are graduates of Bible college in Yangon.
2. Each child goes to a school where they finish eighth grade and then take national exams. If they pass those exams, they get to go on to high school. They all have to take an eighth-grade exam, and the test is challenging. We work with them to make sure that they pass that exam.
3. After high school, if they want to go into a training program, we will train them, but over 90% of our kids go on to the Bible college that is run by Paul, our national worker, and his brothers. The majority of Bible college graduates go on and serve in ministry. Many of them get married and go into church planting.
Why are there so many church planters going into ministry? Our partners are the reason we have so many going into ministry, because they want to reach their country for Christ.
