Update 12 April ’11 – funds for 7 generators have been sent to Myanmar and funds for 2 more are ready to go – making 9 in all. Thank you very much for your care and compassion and generosity.
Update 18th March ’11: Praise the Lord – we have sent funds for a further 4 generators, making 7 in all. There are still several homes which care for orphans and students which could use one.
Update: 9th March ’11 Thank you very much – funds for 3 generators are on the way to Myanmar. Praise the Lord and pray for further funds to complete the supply of the need.
Our Advent Christian Conference Leaders in Myanmar tell us that the lack of supply of electricity to their homes and Bible colleges is an ongoing problem and hardship for them. The supply is very unreliable especially in the summer months when it is very dry in their country. Often they only have electricity supply for parts of one or two days a week. Their families and students suffer in many ways as they do not have lighting in the evenings for preparing evening meals and for homework and study time for the orphans they are caring for (117 between the four of them), and for the Bible College students.
Ideally they need at least 6, 8 would be wonderful, but EVEN ONE would be of great assistance to one home.
Each generator costs the equivalent of NZ$650 (US$500) – they are readily available as is the diesel fuel for them.
Let’s bring the light to Myanmar!
