GoKaren: Operation IDP
KarenReaching Out to Internationally Displaced People

Northern Thailand is home to thousands of people belonging to various tribal groups. Originally from Myanmar, many have been torn from their homes there, and forced to leave their country.

One of these groups is the Karen people, most of whom live in very isolated villages in the mountains. While some have recently been displaced to Thailand, many have claimed it as their home for years. Most Karen live in very isolated villages in the mountains.

Their religion is a mix of animism and Buddhism, but in the past 100 years, Christianity has been widely received. Although the Karen people are not considered unreached, there are still huge needs amongst them.

GTO has been given a special opportunity to partner with a group of indigenous Karen missionaries working here in Northern Thailand. This group has children?s homes, Bible schools, and many other projects set up to encourage believers, and to share Jesus with those who do not yet know. We have the privilege of working alongside them in church building projects, in teaching and training young evangelists, in projects with children, and in assisting financially.

Ways You Can Get Involved
  • Pray for the Karen evangelists who are courageously and sacrificially taking the gospel to their own people.
  • Pray for a release from the bondage of spirit worship that so many Karen are wrapped up in.
  • Support an evangelist. A gift of as little as 25 USD per month can help immensely in spreading the Light amongst these souls.
  • Support a Bible school or Children?s hostel. Most students who benefit from these projects come from families who have no means to support the work. Any contributions are very helpful to keep this vital training going.
  • Support an event. Bi-annual Bible Camps for children, occasional special training retreats for evangelists, church building projects, and Christmas projects are just a few specific projects that you could partner with.
