Children in Burma (Myanmar) pray after hearing the gospel.

Prayer Response  

Children in Burma (Myanmar) pray after hearing the gospel at a children's program offered by a Bible college. The event was part of a campaign that students and faculty at an indigenous ministry's Bible college recently undertook. The college sent out 36 teams of three-to-five members each for open-air preaching, house-to-house visits and children's campaigns. "Two teams were stopped by soldiers and asked questions but, by God's grace, nothing happened to them," the ministry director said. "We were excited to see that 355 people got saved, and 27 people took water baptism. And since the Lord provided us with funds to help poor believers, we purchased rice bags, cooking oil, blankets and some clothing and gave these out to those in need. We are grateful to God and to all the donors for this soul-winning marathon." Please consider giving to enable indigenous missionaries to bring the love of Christ to needy souls.

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).
