Short-Term Missions: Burma

In July one of our elders at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, will travel to Burma with a local organization called Remember to work with the kids in the Faith and Agape Children’s Homes, which house children from oppressed ethnic minorities. Some of the children have lost one or both of their parents directly because of persecution. Remember has been in the process of building a new home for these children–one that will accommodate their needs by providing a safe place for them grow, learn life skills, attend school, and play soccer!

The team hopes to complete the new children’s home, provide medical checks for the children and others in the community, and spend time with the kids showing them the love of Christ. 

Our own Todd Christian, a skilled contractor, shares why he’s joined the Remember team to Burma:

I was immediately interested when I heard the local organization, Remember, was looking to build a team of people with medical and construction skills, along with those who just have a heart to work with children to go to Burma this summer. We’ll be working at Remember’s orphanages which houses many children who have lost their parents due to religious persecution. Our goal will be to complete the construction of 75 bunk bed sets, cabinets, and install the electrical and plumbing systems. It is a big task, so we depend upon God to help us accomplish more than we are naturally able.

Join the Redeemer family in praying for Todd and the rest of the Remember team! If you’d like to make a tax-deductible donation, visit Todd’s fundraising page here.
