Short-term Missions Trip | Myanmar

This team will serve at the St. Matthew's Orphanage Center (SMOC), which is located in central Myanmar (formerly Burma). SMOC is an orphanage that was established in 2003 by the St. Matthew's Kachin Baptist Church. Their mission is to provide a loving, Christ-centered home environment for the children of Myanmar who have lost parents or been neglected. Their orphanage, located on the grounds of the St. Matthews Church in Pyin Oo Lwin, Myanmar, has approximately 80 children.

Our team will be joined by ministry partner, Jonathan Stone, and will work alongside the Christian staff to provide resources, supplies, and support for the daily education and Gospel training they do with the children. In addition, we will be working on projects to enhance the facilities of the orphanage and serve in the local community alongside the staff. 

Who for: 

Adults, families and students (Youth under 16-years-old will need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian. Minimum age is nine-years-old.)
