The irony of Myanmar flooding? Water scarcity

Myanmar (MNN) -- Water, water, everywhere, yet not a drop to drink. That’s the story in flooded Myanmar as aid groups struggle to keep up with the demand of thirsty souls. Ponds, rivers, and hand-dug wells traditionally used as fresh water sources have been contaminated by Myanmar’s worst flooding in decades. “In Pwintbyu, we found that there is not enough drinking water in the camps,” Save the Children communications manager told Reuters. Pwintbyu is one of the four regions severely affected by historic Myanmar flooding. In Nyaungdone, an official at a camp for displaced villagers told Burma News International: “200 villages in the township faced acute drinking water scarcity.” Tens of thousands of Myanmar flooding survivors are without clean water, and disease is on their doorstep. “That’s kinda that ‘second wave’ of devastation: the disease and illnesses that can come about as a result of the poor sanitation and not [enough] adequate resources,” says Amie Cotton of Christian Aid Mission (CAM). Hope floats Clean water may be scarce, but in times like these, hope is often a rarer find. That’s why local Christians, with the help of Christian Aid Mission, are bringing both to flood survivors.

“They know the best ways to get resources in from other areas and to get them distributed adequately,” Cotton shares. “They’re people’s neighbors; they know the language, they know the culture.” Along with physical aid like clean water, food, and shelter, indigenous missionaries are sharing the eternal hope of Christ. “It’s not just a humanitarian thing; it is sharing Christ as these urgent needs are met,” Cotton explains. “It’s an opportunity to ‘be there’ [for neighbors]. It’s an opportunity to provide resources in the name of Jesus.” Help believers meet the needs of Myanmar flooding survivors. “The ministries need tarps, they need clothes, they need blankets for the victims. We need to pray for their health,” says Cotton. “If people feel led, they can give, and 100% of the funds that are given go directly to these ministries.”

Boy’s face scarred by extremists

Mission Network News - Fri, 08/21/2015 - 5:00am
Nigeria (MNN) -- Before his village was attacked, Danjuma was an average Nigerian 13-year-old boy. He loved playing with his friends and fishing, and if he could do both at the same time, so much the better. In fact, Voice of the Martyrs USA says he was on the way back from a fishing trip with his friends when they struck. At 6 o’clock in the morning, a group of over 1,000 radical Muslims attacked his village. They burned houses and attacked Christians across the village. Danjuma saw the carnage, and turned and ran. However, he wasn’t fast enough. The extremists caught him and attacked him with a machete, a long heavy knife. He passed out, causing him to forget most of the attack.

When the villagers found his body, they assumed he was dead. They even began preparing a grave for him, but Danjuma had other ideas. As they dug, he suddenly woke up screaming, and the villagers dropped their shovels and rushed him to the hospital. Now, Danjuma’s face is badly scarred, and he lost his right eye in the attack. Some of the wounds will probably never heal, but he insists that the one thing the attackers could never take was his joy. He reminds believers that joy comes from God, not any earthly source. Danjuma has chosen to forgive his attackers, saying that if they knew the love of Jesus, they wouldn’t have done the things they did. Danjuma is asking for your prayer. He’s worried that he might not have the strength he needs to serve the Lord. He’s also asking believers around the world to remember his situation and to remember that through all things, God has a plan. He believes that God would not have let the attack happen if He did not have a way to work things for good.

Change, China, $5 choices

Mission Network News - Fri, 08/21/2015 - 5:00am

China (MNN) -- Passion: a noun that means "strong emotion” or”desire." Its roots are connected to late 14th century Latin when the word was closely connected with Jesus Christ’s suffering on the cross. It’s interesting now to note its connection for Bibles For China. The banner headline on their Web site reads: “A Passion for Bibles. A heart for China.” It answers the reports of revival that is happening throughout rural China. God has opened more doors for BFC this year as their Bible distribution teams are on track to have almost three times the number of Bible distribution events in 2015 compared to 2014. President Wendell Rovenstine says it’s pretty amazing to see what God has done in five years. “There are new Christians coming to Christ. There’s always a great, vast need for God’s Word that is printed in China, and we do all we can to provide as many of the Bibles as we can for them.” As encouraging as getting God’s Word is, the pastors are adding a new subtext to their thanks: What now? “They are really wanting to develop leadership within China to make a difference for the salvation of souls,” explains Rovenstine. Pastors are telling the ministry teams that one Bible reaches a family for Christ.

Bibles For China plans to head back to one of their ministry sites in October. It’s the fourth time they’ve been at this specific church. Then, says Rovenstine, “One of the pastors there asked if we could stay over a day and just be an encouragement to the leaders in that area. He would be willing to put together a group to be a part of it.” The ministry team enthusiastically made plans to accommodate a small training session, but God had bigger plans, Rovenstine adds. “I was thinking of maybe 30-50 people, at the most. This past week, I found out that they want us to provide Bibles and packets for 200 pastors and leaders that are coming together for us to train.” Why so many? “These individuals haven’t been Christians for very long,” explains Rovenstine, “so we’re starting with them from Ground Zero when we’re training them: giving them an overview of a total Bible and what it looks like.” There are two more trips planned in the remaining months of 2015. Rovenstine says each trip celebrates what the local church is doing, and helps resource the Christians. But it’s clear that more hands on deck are what’s needed. “The need is vast. There are areas where they need 300,000 Bibles.... We can provide 100,000 to 150,000 of those, but we’re still way behind the curve in providing the Bibles that are needed.” Those are huge numbers. What difference can one person make? Because the Bibles are purchased for $5 from Amity Printing in China, they’re not only legal, they’re also affordable for the average Christian. Resourcing the local church connects the dots between availability in China and accessibility. Please be a generous as God will allow as you consider how many Bibles you can provide. BFC is also praying for God to raise up teams for their Bible distribution events for 2016. If you are interested, click here to get more information.
