Myanmar Impressions

Myanmar Impressions

Top left: In the scorching heat, the little girl walks home from school along the gravel road.
— It is not a natural thing to be able to read by the age of school in Myanmar. Many people are unable to read because of civil war or remote places of residence.

Top: Two little girls playing on the slide.
— This slide looks a little strange, and the handisers are a bit rough. But it's very strong. It was done by the preacher of a children's centre in Myitkyan. In Burma, I see many of the evangelical workers ahead of them with eighteen-like martial arts, electricians, carpentry, circuits, and even building houses.

Top right: Out of the woods by the road, drug addicted young men.
— Myanmar, like some Southeast Asian countries, is extremely ill with drug abuse. Because drug use is not allowed in villages, drug users often gather in the woods to "happy like a fairy". This forest is also where drug dealers come to the drug.

Center left: A Yi woman who is being prayed.
Myanmar is the world's longest civil war, more than 50 years. As a result of years of war, resources were scarce, so ethnic minority rebels often imposed head taxes or looted around the mountains. The woman, who had no money to pay taxes and was afraid of being hurt, fled her mountain home with her two children and three grandchildren and took refuge in the mountains.

Middle and middle: Several children at a children's center in Myanmar are washing pots and pans after dinner.
— Many children's centres in Myanmar house children from orphans and vulnerable families. Usually these children are well trained to help share some of the family and labor in the children's center.

Center right: The monks who come to the streets early in the morning to receive the support of the people.
— Myanmar is a Buddhist country, so monks are usually highly respected. Residents of each area usually know when monks come to the streets, so they have prepared rice and dishes to wait on the side of the road to support them.

From left: A young Burmese man stands on a vast piece of land just acquired by a evangelical institution, about to start reclaiming wasteland, resettling refugees, and preparing to build a church in the future.
— My personal observation is that mytheological education in Myanmar is extremely solid. After graduating from the seminary, many young people are willing to step on the front lines of the gospel, beginning to pioneer, preach, and plant.

Down: A little girl walking past an old pagoda.
— The pagodas of Burma are invincible in their small and large. As in this picture, the ancient pagoda is also quite a lot. According to locals, in the middle of the pagoda, gems and gold are often placed when they are built. The ancient pagoda is sacred in the hearts of The Burmese, and must not be arbitrarily demolished.

Next right: A woman who enjoys Burmese English tea.
Burma was ruled by the British colonies for many years, and therefore greatly influenced by Britain. Drinking morning tea has certainly become one of the most common habits of Burmese. But in addition to milk tea, you can also enjoy rice lines and oil bars and other eastern – style food.
