Where is my next meal coming from? Where is it safe? Who can help me?
In Myanmar, it is culturally frowned upon to ask questions, but for the past two years, many people have done exactly that. People are asking big heart questions about the meaning of life, about their faith, about how to place priorities in life, and deeply personal ones like the ones listed above.
A partner shared this account of a Buddhist family in Yangon who thought they had eaten their last meal. They are street food hawkers, who normally cooked for others, but now had reached the end of their own resources. They had no more food. They remembered hearing about Jesus, but they did not know much about Him. He was said to be good, so together as a family they prayed a simple prayer: “Jesus if You are real, can You please bring us some food?”
The next morning there was a knock at the door, and as the door opened, they found members of a local church with a food parcel for the family. They were astonished and overjoyed — Jesus really did hear them, and even showed His care for them! The family became even more grateful as they learned how much more Jesus had done from them.

Pray that the Church in Myanmar will continue to be bold, compassionate and generous in sharing what they have with those around them, especially this Christmas season.
