Burma Catastrophe

May 5, 2008

The peoples of Burma continue to suffer. This time it is not from the hand of the oppressive junta, but as a result of a massive cyclone that has killed upwards of 10,000 people and destroyed tens of thousands of homes. Some consider Burma one of the most dangerous places to visit. Now add to the list one of the most devastated.

Since my trip to Burma back in 2002, my heart has been burdened for the Burmese and its many people groups, including my work among the Shan-Dai. Pray for Burma. Serve Burma. Give to Burma. Go to Burma. Contact World Vision, World Relief or UN. And if you are in Austin, Burma has come to you. We have several hundred Burmese refugees living in our city. If you want to provide for them, contact Caritas.

    yes, do pray for Myanmar (formerly Burma). my closest classmate in post-graduate studies is a Burmese, and often time their zeal and willpower to live on encourages me to live on and do greater things for our God.

    our deepest condolence on this catastrophe.
