Hundreds of communities are enslaved by drugs and prostitution surrounding The Edge outreach center. Located in Myanmar, just outside the China border, this region has been marred by political crisis and social struggle. The effects of war are evident, and most heavily affected are families and children. After realizing the spiritual depravity and physical poverty of this area, our local missionary family decided to move to this region to shine the light of the gospel to those who desperately need salvation. They have given up earthly comforts in order to serve the local people groups and minister to the poor.
After seeing the immense pain caused by drugs, prostitution and poverty, it is our heart to open a drug rehabilitation center and children’s home at The Edge outreach center. This is a massive undertaking given the tight grip of a corrupt government, and we realize that it is beyond our means. But we trust that God can make a way when there seems to be no way. Through this holistic means of evangelism, we pray many would be set free from addiction and countless families and children will be given hope.
We built The Edge outreach center in 2014 as a home for our local missionary family, an outreach center and a center for our feeding program and discipleship training. Our local missionaries are daily reaching out to over 30 children in the area. Still, with an ongoing civil war in Myanmar and continued political unrest—bullets flying overhead—the ministry has been affected. But despite the looming danger, our local missionaries continue one on one personal evangelism and discipleship.
The ongoing civil war and continued political unrest in Myanmar creates a constant security issue for our local missionaries at The Edge outreach center. They and their children are living in constant danger. We need heavy intercession and prayer covering for our faithful missionary family. The Edge outreach center is one of the most dangerous outreach centers we oversee. Please pray for safety and breakthrough among the communities they are ministering to. Also consider giving to our monthly need for this outreach center. $900 per month covers our local missionary family’s living expenses, discipleship and evangelism activities, and our weekly feeding program for the children.
