You all know by now about our farms in Myanmar. They are up and running a bit now; still, the civil war in that country continues. Pastor Vel wrote the other day to give me an update and shared a story that was a blessing. I thought it would be to you as well, so here it is.
Yesterday, our deacon and I brought our church's widow and her three grandchildren to our new farmland and built a temporary hut for them to stay. They have been living on the side of the road in our area, on municipal property, and they were forced to leave the place by the military on Tuesday. So, the widow came to me and asked for help and said that she wanted to live in our new land. So we brought them and built for them a temporary shelter.
A very simple hut and I pray we will be able to build a better or decent one than this soon. We also need to build a toilet as well. Our farm watcher, his older brother with our deacon, and two of our orphan boys helped build the hut.
How wonderful it is to see those among the poorest of God's servants doing what they can to take care of a family in even worse financial shape. How grateful I am for them and for you, whose offerings for recent projects have allowed us to help so many churches, families, and pastors.
