1. Myanmar Flooding Relief Update — Stories from the Field (08/29/15)

Many have been killed and hundreds of thousands have been affected by devastating floods and landslides that have engulfed homes and cut off vast parts of the country. There is an immediate need for clean water, food, housing, medical care, and counseling to avoid further death and suffering. Many residents have lost all their possessions and been forced into camps as their homes remain underwater. Others must travel down city streets in canoes or other boats due to the unprecedented flooding.

Local Anglican churches have thrown themselves into the relief effort under the leadership of CPM’s Relief Committee. One local parish priest reported on the situation in his community: “We have rice but we need drinking water urgently. School is closed and children are at homes. They go from house to house but parents are so worried and anxious of the situation.”

ARDF is urgently requesting relief donations that will be dispersed to CPM and used to purchase:

  1. Clean water
  2. Rice
  3. Transportation
  4. Medicine
  5. Dry goods
  6. Utensils and equipment
  7. Contingency needs

Please join us in praying for our brothers and sisters in Myanmar during this time of crisis. Only in Christ can we live in safety: 

Compassionate God, draw near to our brothers and sisters in Myanmar in this time of sorrow and anguish, comfort those who mourn, strengthen those who are weary, encourage those in despair, and lead us all to fullness of life; through the same Jesus Christ, our Savior and Redeemer, who liveth and reigneth with thee, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God for ever and ever. Amen

At the present time your plenty will supply what they need, so that in turn their plenty will supply what you need. Then there will be equality.
