Burmese children enjoying a meal.

Eat, Pray, Love  

Poor children in remote, jungle areas of western Burma (Myanmar) enjoy a meal at a Christmas event where Jesus is proclaimed. In a country where the government gives special status to Buddhism, Christmas provides an opportunity to share Christ in a non-threatening environment, the director of an indigenous ministry said.

"So many people want to know who Jesus is and why Christmas is celebrated, so many people's hearts are very, very open."
