Saramati Hall I began by faith in 2012 with three children. Our contacts (a husband and wife team) began praying about educating and discipling a few Naga children who Lord willing would later become leaders in their villages. Against all odds, many enormous challenges and with faith in God they began Saramati Hall I. They now have eleven children (representing six different tribes) living at their home in Insein Township in Yangon. These children are from the far away Naga Hills. In May 2018, ten more children arrived to move into Saramati 2. This home still needs to be finished and funds are needed to complete the home (bathrooms, kitchen, water tank, septic tank, and beds). Presently there are 11 children in SH-I and 10 children in SH-II plus 2 wardens. So, there are total 23 of them comprised of various sub-tribes of the Naga such as Konyak, Maguri, Thangkhul, Tangshang, Machen, Lainawng, Solo, Khamiungan.
Nagas are a tribal people group inhabiting northwest Myanmar spread out between Kachin State and Sagaing Division. In India, they are found in Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Assam and present Nagaland states. Their land has been used by various Insurgencies for hideouts by which fact the government of Burma neglected them. The first American missionaries came to present Nagaland state in India 150 years ago. Until then the Nagas people were all animists. It is taking a long time to spread Christianity among the Nagas due to lack of education, communication systems, and different sub tribal dialects. There are nearly forty Naga villages where the Gospel has not yet been preached. Saramati is the name of the highest mountain shared by both India Nagaland and Myanmar Naga hills. Our contact’s vision and prayer is that the Nagas will aim very high and be the highest mountain that cannot be hidden for the sake of Christ; that they will be recognized and appreciated by all and that the children will grow in stature, wisdom and the fear of the Lord.
After hearing of Saramati Hall 1 and 2 many of the Naga people are now interested in sending their children to a Christian boarding home but they cannot pay for their food and lodging. Your monthly support helps to provide shelter, food, clothing, school fees and a Bible for these children. We praise the Lord for a place where these children can come to grow and learn. At Saramati Hall these children are being educated while being taught the Word of God and shown the love of Jesus. Thank you for helping to bring the hope of our Savior Jesus Christ to these dear children!
