Little Door International

  1. 1. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />
  2. 2. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />The Country :: Myanmar<br />The country of Myanmar was formerly known as Burma before the current military junta took control. In addition to re-naming the country, most of the cities were also given new names. <br />The military government has declared the nation a Buddhist state. Buddhists comprise 89 percent of the population, while Christians make up 4 percent, and Muslims, Hindus, and other religions make up the remainder.<br />Myanmar (Burma) is one of the poorest nations on earth with an economy that is being destroyed by double and triple-digit inflation. Myanmar (Burma) has a population of approximately 55 million, and is about the size of the state of Texas.<br />
  3. 3. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />The Need :: Help for Orphans<br />Myanmar (Burma) also is teeming with orphans. This is primarily due to:<br /><ul><li>Parents dying young, due to poor diet and lack of medical prevention, leaving children who have no place to go, except to the streets;
  4. 4. When there is a divorce, if the new husband does not want the children of the previous husband, the wife must put the children out on the streets;
  5. 5. When a child of Buddhist parents professes Christianity, the parents will often put them out of the house, leaving them no place to live but on the streets.</li></ul>As a result of these factors, many Bible schools, seminaries, and churches, with very limited resources, operate their own orphanages, where these children are given a Christian environment in which to live.<br />The Need :: Spiritual & Financial<br />The living standard in Myanmar (Burma) is declining almost daily because of the state of the economy. Consequently, Christians have little or no funds with which to purchase Bible study material; build buildings for churches, Bible schools, or orphanages; or to purchase needed equipment and vehicles. In many cases, the Christian institutions that do exist have no electricity.<br />The students in these schools and seminaries consist of hundreds of young men and women who have committed themselves to full-time Christian service—that of pastors, evangelists, Bible teachers, or nursery and orphanage workers. Most, however, have no funds with which to pay tuition, or room and board.<br />
  6. 6. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />(3) Purchasing Land and Constructing Buildings - We are financially underwriting the purchase of land and construction of buildings for Bible schools, seminaries, churches, day schools, and orphanages. <br />The people who are involved with these institutions are simply too poor to build these facilities without help. We provide the funds, general planning, and oversight, but we work with the local people who do the actual construction work.<br />Our Work in Myanmar (Burma) is fourfold:<br />Teaching - Several teams of men travel to Myanmar (Burma) at their own expense to teach the Word of God to students in Bible Schools, Seminaries, and churches. When doing so, we are trying to model good teaching styles for the students, primarily through expository messages working through the books of the Bible.<br />(2) Providing Study Materials - We help provide study tools, such as computers, generators to operate those computers, and Bible study software. We also provide the financial support and are the directors of the Myanmar Christian Literature Group which translates and prints sound Bible study material in their native languages.<br />
  7. 7. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />(4) Setting Up Self-supporting Cottage Industries - Not knowing how long we will be allowed to work in Myanmar (Burma), we are attempting to place each entity—the schools, seminaries, and the orphanages and day care centers—into some form of small business to help them support themselves.<br />Thus far we have purchased for them farms, a sewing business, retail stores, and a small trucking operation. We have also explored other industries, such as a purified water business.<br />We do not want the people and institutions to be dependent on us or other westerners, but to be able to take care of themselves. We believe this part of our work not only helps remove that dependency, but also teaches good habits as the people learn how to operate small businesses. Our goal is that each ministry will be able to provide for its own needs in the future.<br />
  8. 8. Little Door International<br />Ministry to Myanmar (Burma)<br />Our Mission Statement<br />Little Door International exists with the cooperation of the Holy Spirit to assist organizations to respond to the Great Commission which states: "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28:18-20)<br />Our Ministry<br />Little Door International is a non-profit Section 501(c-3) organization dedicated to helping our fellow Christians in the poverty-stricken nation of Myanmar (Burma).<br />What We Believe<br />We believe in the triune God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; in the absolute sovereignty of God in all areas, including men's souls; in the full inspiration and authority of the Word of God; the virgin birth and deity of Jesus Christ; justification by grace through faith alone; the priority of the local church; world-wide missions; the privilege and necessity of preaching the gospel of Christ; the exclusivity of the Christian faith; the miracles of both the Old and New Testaments; the final judgment of both the living and the dead; and an eternal heaven and hell.<br />
