Myanmar / Morelos

Myanmar. To my knowledge I have never heard that name before, but as of now it is etched into my memory forever. Located east of India and west of Laos and Thailand, Myanmar is a nation also known to many as Burma, the largest country in Southeast Asia. A few days ago a cyclone of epic proportions hit Myanmar and now as of this morning the death toll is exceeding 22,000. My heart is torn knowing that there are children now made orphans by this disaster. Please pray for the families that are left and have the task of sorting their lives out, burying their dead, and starting over again. If you care to donate to this, I recommend Samaritan’s Purse.

One of our orphanage directors in Morelos, Mexico sent a report that I recieved in email this morning. John Bivens ( Rainbow Ministries ) writes :

Good evening and God bless. I hope this finds you all well and blessed. Just a little update and some prayer requests. We now have 22 children including 2 baby girls. Many of you know that our numbers fluctuate, we have had a few children go home and we have recently recieved 4 new children. Three of the new ones are siblings, 2 two girls and one boy. One of the girls is 18 months old and came to us in very poor condition. She is beginning to show some improvement but it has been a long road, and long nights… One of our biggest prayer request is for Isaac. Last week he had an accident and has 2 breaks in his ankle. Although they are supposed to operate tomorrow, he has been waiting for days in the hospital. Claudia and her mother and mother -n-law have been with him and are taking shifts at the hospital. Please keep him in your prayers. Paulina and I are ok but pretty tired please pray for us, I know the Lord gives us strength. We have several special needs and would like for you to pray with us about them. One item of great concern is the physical health of all of us here. Please pray the Lords protection over all of us. There are other needs but would ask that you pray for the Lords favor on us and this Ministry. Thank you and God bless.
