Yesterday I received a report from Apostle John Mark, the minister who oversees 1Church1Day in Myanmar (Burma) and represents KLI's work there. Cyclone Komen dropped over three feet of rain in an eight day period at the end of July (click here). Many died and thousands of families were displaced. Four families who are part of the ministry there lost their home as well. Here's is an excerpt from his report that describes what he did with the aid we sent.
Tim, today we went to 3 villages ,where our members are affected by flood. We distribute rice, money and clothes.
Right now our members left homes and stayed in big Christian church building. They are told to stay for next two months. There is shortage of supplies. Please continue to pray for us. Bless you. John Mark
Please join us in praying for them as well. Disease is rampant. So far John Mark's family oldest son ended up hospitalized with Dengue fever and Hepatitus. His younger son and baby daughter have recently suffered from a bout of severe diarrhea. Praying Psalm 91 and Psalm 103:2-5 for them and their health.
To donate: click here! We send financial aid promptly. I am told a bag of rice goes for $185 a bag now. To learn more about the work in Burma: click here! We are planning a trip (team of 3) to see them in November as well as to check on the work in India. Brenda and I still need to raise $7500 more while our other teammate Charlene of Wisdom Ministries needs an additional $2500. To partner with us in this outreach click here.
