Free Burma Rangers

Thailand 025Before speaking at the China conference in Chiang Mai in January we much enjoyed a few great days with Elizabeth’s nephew and his wife, John and Christa. They spoiled us, taking us out to see fascinating places and eating wonderful meals. While Christa works as a student counsellor in a large international school with all the problems related to children growing up in two cultures, John is a doctor working into the tribal areas of Burma where the Burmese army ruthlessly destroys tribal villages and shoots their people. John works with a wonderful team called the Free Burma Rangers who help the tribes educationally, medically and socially. They also seek to alert the world to the Burmese army’s violent oppression of the minority peoples. This is highly dangerous work, so they travel by night and through the jungle, avoiding the roads which are ruled by the army. For John and Christa this is not only dangerous, but also involves long weeks of separation for each trip into Burma.

You can learn more of the Free Burma Rangers on their website. They are always looking for new workers (both tribal Burmese and foreign) and for people who will stand with them in prayer support.
