ASIAN PENINSULA AND ISLANDS
MYANMAR + SURROUNDING AREA, TIRZAH MYANMAR
Tirzah's leadership team in the region has a network that impacts women who are living with HIV/AIDS. This team conducts medical missions every month. A doctor visits 50 women and does checkups, dispenses medication and refers them to local churches where they can receive support and the good news that they are loved and valued in Christ.
On the third Saturday of every month Tirzah in Myanmar hosts a women’s fellowship meeting. Women ministry and mission leaders set aside all of their other work and meet to pray, share testimonies of how the Lord is working in their lives and encourage one another. This group comes together across denominational and racial differences. In a nation where religious freedom is precious, these meetings are a great encouragement and serve as strong motivation for ministry.
Dorothy Colney, Tirzah’s regional leader for Southeast Asia, holds leadership training conferences each year reaching several hundred women. The training includes spiritual, leadership and personal development. These women leaders go on to train many other women in their communities.
SLAVERY + Violence
Dorothy and her team in this region have a network that impacts women who have suffered abuse, rape, forced prostitution and who are at risk of being sold across borders. The work is church-based and focuses on discipleship and building women up so that they can improve their lives and reach out to vulnerable women in their immediate communities.
