Myanmar Project - Portlife Church
Until 1962 Myanmar (Burma) was one of the richest countries in Asia. March 2, 1962, that all began to change. The group of army officials headed by Chief of General staff Ne Win mounted a putsch and a army june took over the people. and established a revolutionary council under authority.
Goverment secretaries, racial rulers and all those who opposed the regime were arrested. During 2011, 60% of public expenditure was spent on the army, only 1.3% on healthcare and 4.13% on educational systems. It' the fifth most pressing state in the whole wide globe. Pastor Andrew of the Myanmar CRC Church contacted us.
I mean, he wanted to make a home for a bunch of kids without a roof. There was a pair who wanted to take care of 10-12 kids, but he had no way to fund the work. By 2011 we had collected over $80,000 and bought three blocs of Myanmar's lands. We built a large perimeter in 2012 to protect the country (cost about $27,000).
By 2015 the home was almost finished and the kids moved into the home with their new mother and father. One of the teams went to Myanmar in June 2015 and opened "The Life House" inaugurated. We' re currently collecting funding for a second home for endangered women in Myanmar.

Myanmar's typical year usually includes a high number of public holiday periods, many of which are related to the country's close ties with the faith. The MOST MYANMAR folks use two different calendars: This is the international recognized Bregorian and Kawza Thekkarit calender, a tradition that still today characterizes sacred feasts, national festivals and estrological circumstances.
His first year (or epoch) is 638 AD, around the same period it was launched by King Popa Sawrahan as an updating of the old Hindu agenda and brought to Ayeyarwady Valley by Hindu astrologers. Whereas the Grigorian calendars are judged by the Solar, the Myanmar calendars are of the lunar type and emanate from both the Solar and the moon.
In the Myanmar calender, a single date is still referred to as a date divided by 60 different elements. Obviously, the problem with a Lunisolary calendars is that the movement of the star and that of the moon is never aligned to perfection. Therefore, the Myanmar calendars must be constantly adapted. One year on the Moon (354 days) is less than the year of the Solstice (and the initial position of the Earth's atmosphere is somewhat irregular).
Thus, the 12-month-cycles always fall back with a ratio of about 11 a year. In order to capture the moon calender up to the sun, in certain years after the Waso ( "Waso II") months, astrologers are adding a specific activation period (such as February 29th in a Leap Year), which increases the moon year from 354 to 384 from 354 d...
Although the sequence by which the starting month is added is complicated and changes from one day to the next, it always follows a 19-year cycles (known in the astronomical world as the Metonic Cycle), which is the period of the new and full moon returning to the corresponding heliostat.
Today's Thinkgyan is for example three long nights, because the year of Myanmar is indeed 0. 002387 nights longer than the real sun year, which has progressively advanced the first night of the year over the years. U Aung Chit, 84, director of the three-member advisory board, the Ministry of Religious Affairs and Culture, is responsible for updating the calender.
Aung Chit has been fascinated by conventional astronomy since she was a child. For more than 30 years he has served on the Council, supervising the complexity of the computations and practice involved in determining the public holiday season and ensuring that the historical calendars meet the needs of contemporary Myanmar. "It' s more appropriate to call our one sacred calendar," he said, stating that Myanmar everyday citizens use the calendars mainly for aesthetic and spiritual ends, highlighting anniversaries like Yatyarzar, a convenient date, and Pyathada, a bad breath of life - a Myanmar variant from Friday, December 13.
As these different series are often totally autonomous, many of the Council's choices (such as the particular years in which additional periods are added) are somewhat biased, on the basis of traditional religion and practice in supplement to real astrophotomy.
