IMMANUEL CHILDREN'S HOME
Our country, Myanmar, will know God through these kids. We work for them to have a bright and beautiful future.
Paul Peng Len
Immanuel Children Home is led by Paul Peng Len and Mary. The campus is located in central Myanmar, just outside of the northeastern suburbs of Yangon.
Paul Peng Len was born in Chin State in 1971. Throughout the first year of his life, he dealt with severe health concerns. At one point, both his family and his village believed that there was no way that he could survive. However, a gospel group was traveling through Chin State and heard about Paul’s condition. They stopped and prayed over him while sharing the Gospel to his family and village. The next day, Paul’s health drastically improved, and his family accepted Christ.
When he was only 3 years old, both of Paul’s parents died of malaria. He was sent to live with his uncle, but in 9th grade, his uncle would pass away as well. With no support or income, Paul moved to India for work. While he was there, he accepted Christ and was baptized on New Year’s Day in 1989. In February of 1993, God gave Paul a vision to start an orphanage, and he started Immanuel Children Home in 2004 with 12 total children.
Paul and his wife, Mary, got married in 1991 and have 5 children: Kyi Kyi, Khin Kyi, Nanda, Tun Lynn, and Kyaw Tun, all of whom have some role in the Immanuel campus. Paul’s personal interests include being with the children, reading, and taking time to pray alone, and Mary enjoys being around the children. Immanuel also raises pigs as a source of income.
Paul bases the mission of his campus off of Matthew 18:14, which says, “In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should perish.”
