Place of service: Burma Bike Partnership

Why We Serve

We serve out of gratitude for what Christ has done for us. There truly is no other way that we feel we could honor and glorify God better than serving in His kingdom. Our relationship with each other was forged in Myanmar and it is incredible to have been called back to Myanmar by God to serve His kingdom there.

How We Serve

We taught English and trained four incredible young men in the art of crafting bamboo bicycle while ministering to young adults—especially young men. We founded the Burma Bike Partnership and have now handed the ownership of the Partnership to the young men we trained in Myanmar. We also had the opportunity to share the gospel and about God’s grace in a context of discrimination, hate, and war in a Buddhist context.
