It is very diverse ethnically, with eight major national races, 135 sub-groups and tribes, and many more smaller tribes and language groups.  Even though the land is richly blessed with teak forests, fertile soil, precious gems and minerals and offshore oil, most people live in poverty surviving on less than $1 day.  It is largely a Buddhist country, with the church having great suffering and repression.  Even so, there is growth in the church and openness of the Monks to learn about Jesus.  However, Buddhism incorporates a lot of superstition and their devotion is strong in a culture that is against leaving Buddhism.  Pray that the Christians will be able to understand […]
