CFE sponsors are supporting food aid for the poor older lepers in Myanmar. Because of their disease, they can’t work, so they are extremely poor. Many times they don’t eat enough so they are very, very tired and weak. So now they are getting two extra meals per day and they feel much better. Also, at Christmas time the pastors do outreaches in the area. They feed people and tell them the Christmas story. This past Christmas a whole church was started. The pastors started evangelizing in this village in 2012. It is also a leper village, though now it is mostly the descendents of old lepers. There are only two lepers left in the village. But no other families want to live near the lepers. Four families with 17 members are now attending the new church. PTL.
So for these events the Leper church pastors are asking for help to purchase new plates and pots for the meal programs. Right now they need to rent these types of pots and plates from the Buddhist Temple nearby. They would really like to have their own dishes in order to save them money. The ministers to the lepers are not wealthy men.
So they need:
1. 2 or 3 big pots in which to cook the rice, curry, and soups
2. 10 large bowls needed to distribute the food
3. 150 plates to feed all who receive aid
The Mae Ka Chan Children’s Home in Thailand is working on a new building and praying for some extra support to finish it. The home has more than 50 children. There are about half kindergarten children and the rest are high school students. Because the elementary and middle schools in the area persecuted the Christian children from the home, these 91 children have been moved to another facility in another town. This facility is also run by the same Foundation as the Mae Ka Chan Children’s Home.
