Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) is one of the least reached for Christ countries in the world, and also one of the poorest. Eighty-two percent are Buddhist, five percent are Christian. Among the least reached of the population of 55 million are those tribal people residing in the remote hills and mountains. They are unreached primarily because they are hard to reach. These tribal areas are only accessible by foot, animals, or motorcycles along dirt paths. GCRI is responding to a request by already well-trained and seasoned indigenous Myanmar church-planters for gospel-carrying motorcycles. Motorcycles will provide access to remote villages and are extremely versatile and economical. Most of all, they enable missionaries to greatly expand their area of evangelism, church-planting, and discipleship. The average cost is $1000, a small price to pay to move the gospel where it rarely has been heard. One hundred and four have been requested to be distributed across several ministries which are praying for this provision. Just think, your donation could be the beginning of bringing news of the Redeemer to a people who have never heard of their Redeemer. It doesn’t get any better than this!
A quote from a Myanmar pastor: “The ‘tool’ that helps church-planters the most is the motorcycle.”
