June 25, 2008 1 comment

We have been receiving regular updates from our friends in Myanmar in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis.  I will post his email and other material (with some content removed for security purposes).

Dear Brothers,
Please find the attached file to read an update from our relief effort or update from Cyclone Nargis. Even though the governvent does not really give aid to the intended people, we have been able to give it to the real people along with the Gospel. This relief aid have been used as a bridge to build longterm relationship with various group of people.
John 11:25 and John 13:35 were written above an envelop in which we placed money and we hand this envelope over to the people. So, they can read it. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Roman 10:17).
Please continue to remember us in your prayer. 
Thank you once again for being such a help to us especially at this time. Share this letter one that you know.
I also need to inform you that we are going to Bogalay area ( an area destroyed badly by cyclone nargis) tomorrow morning and will be there for two or three days. I will be away from home then.
Sincerely in Christ,

Relief aid distributed after the Cyclone Nargis hit

It was back in the 2 and 3rd of May that the cyclone nargis 
hit hard Yangon, the capital of Myanmar, our country. It destroyed 
so much of the trees and many were dead as a result. But in the 
midst of this terrible destruction and of darkness we were able to 
find a privilege to be a light that shines in the midst of darkness by 
showing to them the love of God and our love for them in the 
We were not alone in distributing aid but we are also one of 
those sincerely involved in the distribution of aid to the people 
who are in desparate need. But we were able to do this simply 
because of your donations and prayer supports. 
We placed money into the envelope and wrote John 11:25, 
John 13:35 and gave it to more than 30 families. Before we dis- 
tributed, we were able to have a prayer for them. I hope that the 
following pictures will speak to you on how we distributed aid.
