Church sanctuary floor completion

Cost: $5,000  //  Location: Church on the Rock in Yangon, Myanmar


In 2020 our partners in Myanmar transitioned a partial outdoor all-purpose room into a fully functional facility to provide additional needed gathering space at the Charity Children's Home in Myanmar, especially for church services.


It now offers a fantastic space for youth worship outreach services, church services, and event space. One project still remaining in the building is completing the tile floor in this new sanctuary space. This new flooring will provide the necessary durability to be used for many years to come!


DONATIONS: Donations of cash, checks (payable to RCC) or online donations will be received each Sunday during Lent to help cover the cost of this project. Funds will be collected from Sunday, February 14 through Sunday, March 28, 2021.

 "My Precious Book" & Prayer Walking Guide Printing & Distribution

Cost: $1,500  // Location: Church plants throughout Myanmar


In October 2021, church planters from all over Myanmar will gather in the capital of Yangon to fellowship, hear from the Lord, and be equipped for the year ahead. As they go out, the goal is to provide them with the tangible resources needed to reach new believers of all ages.


One resource is a prayer walking guide translated into local languages, a simple step-by-step guide to covering communities in prayer through prayer walking.


The other resource is My Precious Book, a bilingual English-Burmese children’s Bible. This is used for the purposes of both evangelism and English language instruction and has proven to be a powerful tool for spreading the Gospel to children and, by extension, their families.


DONATIONS: Donations of cash, checks (payable to RCC) or online donations will be received each Sunday during Lent to help cover the cost of this project. Funds will be collected from Sunday, February 14 through Sunday, March 28, 2021.

New roof for girl's dormitory

Cost: $3,500  //  Location: Charity Children's Home in Yangon, Myanmar


Charity Children’s Home saw many building and facility improvements throughout 2020, and those improvements will prayerfully continue in 2021.


One such needed improvement is a new roof for the girl’s dormitory building. Yangon sees over 100 inches of rain per year — more than double what we get here in rainy Pittsburgh! This makes it vital for each building to have quality, watertight roofing to maintain the longevity and integrity of the buildings. In dormitory buildings, proper roofing is especially important for the health and safety of the children living there!


DONATIONS: Donations of cash, checks (payable to RCC) or online donations will be received each Sunday during Lent to help cover the cost of this project. Funds will be collected from Sunday, February 14 through Sunday, March 28, 2021.
