Our most developed Community, Myanmar, offers a wide variety of incredibly life-changing experiences. The leaders of the orphan network that we partner with, Peter and Rebecca, oversee 12 orphanages around the country that are caring for over 700 orphans. Rebecca also runs the Loom House which employs women who have aged-out of the orphanage, providing them a livelihood and a sustainable income. On the main campus (Love Children Home), there is also a Bible college and a home that cares for widows.
Additionally, Uncharted employs over 20 church planters who are working in both urban and rural settings to reach people groups in Myanmar that have yet to hear the gospel. These bold men and women travel faithfully home to home building relationships, sharing the gospel, and discipling families.
And finally, we help facilitate a restoration home (Thelo Center) for survivors of human trafficking. Currently, the Thelo Center houses 18 women who are receiving physical, emotional, and spiritual restoration and care with an experienced, loving staff.
Since the country of Myanmar has recently opened up more politically and economically, opportunities abound for helping advance the gospel!
