On July 31 cyclone Komen hit Bangladesh and parts of Burma (Myanmar). John Mark, KLI's representative in this nation, has worked with us since 2006. During that time churches have been established, a school for children, houses of prayer multiplied and Mount Horeb prayer center (house of prayer = HOP) was established through 7 denominations working together using our strategy. Brenda and I were privileged to visit there in 2013.
John Mark reports that within 8 days more than three feet of rain fell flooding many cities, towns and villages. The flooding is worse than what occurred when we visited in 2013 when 40 people died in flooding. In fact four members of his ministry have lost homes as of his last report. He reports that the Buddhist government gives Christians aid last if any at all. The flooding has wiped out their crops and as of his last report a large bag of rise is going for $180.
We've already sent a little aid via Western Union. I'd like to strongly urge you to join us in partnering with them click here to donate. Write Burma in the memo section of your check or in the note if you give online. Their ministry and house of prayer (HOP) is part of that eternal house of prayer spoken of in Isaiah 56:7. 1 Corinthians 12:26 says that when one part suffers, we all suffer. Join us in partnering with them.
Here are some of John Mark's pictures as well as our report in 2013. It is POWERFUL! If you go to the 13 minute mark in the report you can see us going up to Mount Horeb. It's anointed! Their love of Jesus is marvelous.
