Class Act  

Ethnic children in a remote area of Burma (Myanmar) do their best to pose for a "class picture" to give Christian Aid Mission donors a glimpse of their reality. At one of seven nursery schools for children under 6 years old run by a native ministry, the kids receive instruction in English, the Bible and standard school subjects. "Nowadays Buddhists are very open to education – many come because Christian schools very good," the ministry director said. "I thought some Buddhists would mind because we do Bible verses and Christian songs, but they thought every religion was good for life, so they're not afraid to come to a Christian school." The ministry needs $300 a month to run one nursery school; please consider a gift to help bring abundant life in Christ to children, who often open the way for sharing Christ with their parents.

Christian Aid Mission is a 60-year-old non-profit organization that equips native missionaries around the world. We serve as a non-denominational foreign mission board that assists more than 500 ministries overseas with tens of thousands of indigenous or native missionaries in the field. These ministries are currently engaging more than 1,000 unreached people groups in more than 100 countries around the world. Our mission is to establish a witness for our Lord in every tribe and nation (Matthew 24:14) by assisting highly effective native missionaries and our focus is on reaching the unreached for Christ in areas in the world where there is no witness for Christ, where foreign missionaries are not allowed, or where Christians suffer because of poverty or persecution. Christian Aid Mission is generally considered to be the first U.S. organization to assist and promote native missionaries overseas. Since 1997, Christian Aid has been a member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA).
