Here are some images of the Flood Relief Trip to the Paletwa area, South West Myanmar, with and through the Myanmar Lutheran Church supported by AFA funds. There are no roads in this mountainous area, only creeks, rivers and walking tracks. No relief had reached here before.
We are in almost daily contact with our friends in Myanmar – those who have been nearest and dearest to us for many years – people in three churches, friends who are heartbroken about what they see before their very eyes: wholesale destruction in vast areas, with hundreds of thousands of people thrown into desperation and poverty. Farmers overnight become homeless, landless, refugees, peasants. Many of these are our brothers and sisters in Christ.
