Myanmar (Burma) Update 2 – July 2017
Hospitality training for young Christians
Barnabas Fund Website
Church-run training in hospitality skills for young Karen Christians will equip them to earn a livelihood in Myanmar’s growing tourist trade. Many new hotels need trained staff. This will rescue them from the desperate poverty of rice farming and its exploitation by middle men. Barnabas Fund is covering the costs of meals and accommodation.
Praise God that Christians from minority ethnic groups in Myanmar have secured representation and significant positions in the new government.
Elsewhere in Muslim areas, hospital management forces Christian staff to recite from the Quran, or be marked absent.
