LEAF works with the Lutheran Church of Myanmar (LCM), which was established in 2000 and has 1750 members. LCM has an orphanage housing 20 children and an education centres for the children who do not have the privilege to go to school. Myanmar is among the countries with a small percentage of Christians and wery few missionaries. The main religion is Theravada Buddhism (80 %). Others are Animism, Islam and Hinduism. Only 4-6 % of the population is Christian. Martin Lalthangliana, the mission director in Myanmar wrote to tell us: “I want you to know, that in Myanmar the harvest is plentiful for active missionary work.”
