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

Image
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.

I was so privileged to participate in the FOB annual meeting last Saturday. It was wonderful meeting with God's children who love and care for the ministry of God in Myanmar and along the Thai- Myanmar boarder. I was in awe seeing the love, sacrifice, time, knowledge and financial support they have shared with the people there. I was so touched by their work. Personally, I am also supported by FOB as I study Doctor of Ministry at Central Baptist Theological Seminary. I am thankful for their help and support. I see Jesus in each of the people, who has a big heart that beats tenderly for me and for the needs of the people there. I believe the blessings you share to the less fortunate will bear fruits and grow day by day. I really appreciate everything you have done for me and for others. God bless FOB! ~ Nay Tar Mu, Teacher (Kawthoolei Karen Baptist Bible School and College – KKBBSC)
