Greetings

You are warmly welcome to our website. The Bible ministry in Myanmar started 127 years ago by British and Foreign Bible Society as one of its agencies. Amidst of different obstacles, uncertainties and limitations in the country, today, the Bible Society stands firmly in making God’s Word available to the people of Myanmar. To God be the glory for His divine provision and protection.
The population of Myanmar is estimated to be 60 million, of which about 6% are Christians. There are more than 135 sub-races and language groups recognized by the government. Among them, 68 different languages have received either the whole Bible or New Testament or portion of the Bible.
You are invited to explore our current Bible ministry in Myanmar. It is our sincere prayer and hope that these pages will bridge between you and our current ministry for the purpose of sharing God’s Word to different ethnic groups in Myanmar. Together, we can make differences.
