Be on Teen Missions first team to Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) where you will build a dormitory for the Rahkine Children’s Orphanage. Myanmar, home to some of the oldest civilizations of Southeast Asia, is bordered by China, Thailand, India, Laos and Bangladesh. What a unique opportunity to experience all these cultures in one place! After training at the Lord’s Boot Camp, you fly from the Orlando International Airport to O’Hare International in Chicago. Connecting flights take you across Canada, the Pacific Ocean and the International Date Line to Hong Kong, China, and on to Yangon, the capital of Myanmar. From the airport, an eight-hour journey by bus takes you across the Irrawaddy River and the Arakan Mountains to Gwa, located on the Bay of Bengal. The children of the orphanage will be happy to greet you and share in the excitement of your arrival. After getting settled in, you will begin construction on the dormitory and toilet/shower building. During free time, enjoy playing games with the kids and sharing the love of Christ through music, puppets and dramas that you learned at Boot Camp. Housing will be in a building; bathing and laundry will be done using a bucket. You return to Yangon for a day of shopping at Scott Market for brass, wood, jewelry and pearls. At the end of your trip, you overnight in Hong Kong where you will shop for your last-minute souvenirs at one of the world’s best Chinese night markets and take a ride on the Star Ferry across Hong Kong Harbor.
