Help Build a Church in Burma

Posted by on April 26, 2010 in News | 0 comments

The attached letter is an emergency request from a Karen pastor in the Irrawaddy Delta of Burma.  For security reasons CFI cannot disclose his name or exact location in the Delta.  He is requesting approximately $1,500 to complete construction of a much needed church in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis.  See letter>

As you may recall, Cyclone Nargis killed thousands of men, women, and children two years ago in the Irrawaddy Delta of Burma.  Tens of thousands of people continue to suffer there due to a lack of clean water, disease, and malnourishment. 

After much prayer and negotiation, the military junta recently gave the pastor permission to rebuild a church in this mostly Christian village.   However, there is a catch:  construction of the church must completed soon, or they will not be allowed to finish the project.  Local villagers — as poor as they are — raised nearly $3,500 for construction.  They need an additional $1,500 to complete it.

CFI has worked with this pastor for a long time and know he is a dedicated, faithful, trustworthy servant of Christ. 

Please carefully consider helping with a gift toward this much needed church.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please don’t hesitate to call CFI at 800-323-2273.  Please give a gift of any amount for Relief on our secure donation page.  Additional funds raised will be applied to our ongoing efforts of supplying areas of most urgent need in Burma with much needed water filters. 

On behalf of the Persecuted Church in Burma, thank you for your prayers and consideration of this request.  Give Now>
