Thank You!!!

We just wanted to take a moment and say thank you for  your support over the years.  This is a team effort and none of our work in Myanmar would be possible if it were not for the generosity of our friends and family.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

We just got back from our most recent trip to Myanmar and it was another productive and busy time of supporting our friends there.  Here are some highlights:

-This year we were able to donate over $1500 to a local church and orphanage that will be used to feed orphans, maintain buildings, and supply the church with resources.

-We also visited at least 30 house churches (we kind of lost count), many of which meet illegally and in secret, and we offered prayers and encouragements.

-Then we helped our friend, one of the orphans named Phyu Phyu Win, apply for college.  So far we’ve raised over $7,000 towards her first year of school.  Thanks for your help!  If all goes as planned, she should start this year.   If you’d like to learn more about her, please click here (she needs more supporters!).

– Lastly, we met with a couple other organizations who also care about Myanmar and were encouraged and inspired by their work.  We are hoping to partner with one of these organizations to bring a medical team next year.

There are many challenges in Myanmar, but there is even more hope.  Our vision is a brighter future for the people of Myanmar.   One of the other areas we’re praying about getting connected in the future is with a group of people called the Rohingya, you can read about them here.  According to the United Nations, they are one of the most persecuted, oppressed, and forgotten groups in the entire world.  Please pray for them and pray for us as we continue to work towards a brighter future for our friends in Myanmar.

Again, thank you!
