In mid-April, a cyclone – Cyclone Maarutha – made landfall on the south-west of Myanmar. It came ashore from the Indian Ocean at the Irrawaddy River Delta, travelled over Yangon and headed north to the country’s capital Nay Pyi Taw. It brought winds of up to 100 kilometres per hour and very heavy rain for about 12 hours.
Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar President, Pastor Kenneth reported as follows (my apologies for the delay in publishing this information) …
“At Lapuata Town, Irrawaddy Delta Area there were around 200 houses damaged by the cyclone and one of Brother Timothy’s workers Miss Lydia is working there and her house also damaged by the Cyclone. Brother Joseph’s worker Sister Thurzar also inform us that the roof of her house was damaged by the cyclone. One of my Churches in Phiangone village also no more roof because of the cyclone. Brother David also informs me that one of his church members house in Yangon was also damaged by the cyclone. I am very sorry to inform you about all these things. But I praise God for His mercy upon us, no one has died of the Cyclone.”
Members of Pastor David’s congregation are helping their fellow member whose house was destroyed to rebuild.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters who have again experienced significant disruption to their lives.
