Myanmar InfoAbout Myanmar
Myanmar, the largest nation on the continent of Southeast Asia, is also known as the "Golden Land" because of its golden leafy dome shaped cloisters. Featuring a total of 52 million inhabitants, the nation, which is slightly larger than Texas, is ethically and culturally varied - it has 135 recognised ethnical groups that have their own history, culture and identity.
Myanmar also has numerous indigenous habitats such as olive groves and petroleum, tea wood and other hardwoods, ruby, iade, brass and many others.... Because of its extensive, unspoilt forests, abundance of species of flora uncontaminated, the pristine coast, large fresh-water ponds and long streams, high, unspoilt peaks and strands of practically unspoilt isles, Alan Rabinowitz, a well-known US wilderness conservationist from the Willife Conservation Society, once described the state of a "pot".
There are three seasons: summers (March to May), rain (June to October) and winters (November to February). Myanmar's best season to be visited is from November to February, when temperatures are relatively cold and precipitation is significantly lower, but all four season have their appeal in one way or another.
The majority of Myanmar's inhabitants are Theravada Buddhists, who make up 87% of the country's total populace, while the remainder are Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Islam and animism.

Burma Information & Mission Work
Burma is an exceptional country with gold-plated coupons and a wealth of ancient Asiatic cultur. Unfortunately, decads of ethnical conflict have resulted in persistent violation of people' s freedoms, widespread impoverishment and one of the longest civilian conflicts in the run. Though Burma's industry is one of the least advanced in the country, it is exporting 90% of the world's ruby, not to speak of gemstones such as sapphire, pearl and iade.
Burma is the fortyth biggest nation in the whole wide globe, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. Most of Myanmar's people live in the Irrawaddy River between Rakhine Yoma and the Shan Plateau. Burma is also the world's second biggest manufacturer of marijuana and an important resource for illicit use.
After the three Anglo-Burmese battles (1824-1885), Britain's domination introduced changes to former ruling class society: socioeconomic, culturally and administratively. It has been in one of the longest and still unsolved conflicts since gaining sovereignty in 1948. Between 1962 and 2011 the land was under armed control, but since then a congressional regime has been in place.
Burma has about 56 million inhabitants, of which over 80% call themselves Buddhists and 8.98% Christians (5% Evangelicals). Myanmar's main aim is to reach the natives with the Gospel and to practically divide the charity of God. International teammates are teaching English (or other languages) at the OM Myanmar Linguistic Center during the course of the weeks, and conversational courses are offered on Saturdays and Sundays.
You' ll get together with Myanmar buddies for a cup of coffee, in each other' s houses and in well-known places. Cyclone Nargi ravaged parts of Myanmar in 2008, Mercy Teams International (MTI) reacted with immediate relief in the form of basic necessities such as nutrition and shelter, agricultural and fishery supplies to support Burmese people in the delta.
The Delta Community Center has since been founded to give mental, bodily and socially supportive care to the local family. Faith Community Church and Learning Center, two inches from Yangon City, was a place where protection, nutrition and essential needs were looked for during Cyclone Nargis. In addition, the center supports 80 schoolchildren in need with tuition money.
Many thanks for the land of Myanmar, with its lovely architectural beauty and large parts of unspoilt countryside.
