“Putaik Gyi Adventure” is the newest addition to the growing Asian Children’s mission website. Filmed in December 2013, this six part video series chronicles the trip to a remote river village in the heart of Burma’s southern delta. An American and Myanmar team traveled to the village for a Christmas celebration, and found growing hope and optimism among the children and adults. Asian Children’s Mission has been working in this village since 2008, when Cyclone Nargis destroyed the village.
The segments are from two to six minutes long. Each one can stand alone, but together they do tell the story of a village being transformed through a holistic Christian witness of word and deed.
The Myanmar team included an evangelist, members of the ACM leadership staff and a group of talented musicians from a Christian recording studio in Yangon. The American team included Joana Jones, the ACM director, Brad Pontius, missions minister at the Sherwood Oaks Christian Church in Bloomington, IN, Todd Anderson, an elder from Sherwood Oaks, and Courtney Prater, a teacher from central Indiana.
The short video clips can be used in a variety of circumstances — in congregations, small groups, Sunday School classes, Vacation Bible School, camps and classrooms. We hope that each one will inspire others to “Join the Adventure” of working towards fulfilling the Great Commission — “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations.” (Mathew 28:19)
