Rev. David Horton

We are sad to announce that one of our long-term supporters and emeritus board member Rev. David Horton passed away.

He became interested in the ministry of Friends of Burma when attending a Bible class that Neil taught. David has visited Burma on two (1999 and 2007) different occasions. He has worked to get sponsors and support for orphans in six different facilities. Securing medical supplies and equipment for the KBC Hospital (aka clinic) has been one of his high priorities.

Mission Campaign Presentation -- Kawthoolei Karen Baptist Bible School and College


Mission Campaign - Kawthoolei Karen Baptist Bible School and College

From Mary Wood: I want to begin this report by saying that as students provided this first report of mission campaign to me all I did was cry. Their mission campaign during the month of December is humbling to me. The amount of care and compassion that they provided to 13 villages amazes me beyond belief. During their travels, they managed to travel by truck, foot, boat and tractor. What 75 dollars can do in one month for a group of traveling students to Karen State in Myanmar only God can fathom. If you ever wondered how you can do ministry from your life in USA, consider giving 75 dollars to a mission campaign group this Christmas during sweet December. Your money will send students to do the work you want to do but you will not ever be able to do for yourself. The students will do, in their capacity, the work of God in your place. Their love is packed full of determination and commitment to do the will of God with a smile and a greeting. These students go into places in Burma wh

Distributing Mosquito Nets in Ye Baw Thet Village and Lel Byin Su Village

As told by our friend in Burma: Ye Baw Thet village is in Hmawbi township. The church was founded in 1918. Rev. Thein Oo is the Pastor, and the church has about 170 members according to the record. Unlike the other villages, the villagers live separately in their own paddy fields, but they come to church on Sundays. The village has no electricity. In raining season water is everywhere. They have to build a bamboo bridge to go place to place. Most of the villagers work in the fields. I went there with my brother-in-law. He was happy to help me. First, I brought 30 nets, but when I knew they were going to host visitors in the coming summer youth conference, I added 20 more to give them. Because it was a wet land, it was a heaven for mosquitoes. As soon as we were home my brother took 20 nets, and went back to the village again. It was about 30-minutes drive.  The Pastor was away. His wife and the leader of the women group helped me distributing
