Is God calling you?
Having the chance to visit and spend time with the wonderful people of Myanmar can be an amazing, life-changing event. The impact that it can have, not only on the children there, but on your own life, cannot be overstated.

- Is it safe?
- What are the accommodations like?
- What will we eat?
- How will we spend our time?

Jere and Esther are two girls who I fell in love with during my stay. They waited for me between meals and never let me carry my own backpack. Little Jere would not only carry my backpack but would rush to help me put my sandals on. The urgency to be a servant and to be helpful is heart melting.Ali

I had no idea what God had in store for me when I heard the words “Hey, what do you think about going on a mission trip with me to Myanmar?” My first reaction was a mix of fear (Do tsunamis reach this place? What do I have to offer a trip like this?), excitement and...read more
