We are sad to announce that one of our long-term supporters and emeritus board member Rev. David Horton passed away. David Horton is a retired American Baptist minister and denominational worker living with his wife, Mary, in Arizona. 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.

May he rest in peace!

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 where…
