Myanmar needs your help

On 3rd May 2008, Myanmar was devastated by Cyclone Nargis, which left many of the villages and towns under water and lives lost. To date, official releases showed 22,000 deaths and 42,000 people missing, with probably a million people left homeless. However, U.S. diplomat in Myanmar said Wednesday that up to 100,000 people may have died in the devastating cyclone.AG Churches around the world are ready to meet the need of this suffering nation.

The Myanmar Assemblies of God has hundreds of churches and tens of thousands of believers who are equipped and ready to reach out to those who are suffering in the hardest hit communities,² says AG World Missions Communications Director Randy Hurst. ³AG World Missions has already advanced AG Relief funds to the Myanmar AG to assist them in purchasing whatever food, clean water and goods they need to help the victims of this massive tragedy.

So far, 17 Assemblies of God churches have been confirmed destroyed, with dozens more located in isolated areas devastated by the cyclone ‹ church leaders expect at least 50 churches have been wiped out,² states Russ Turney, AGWM Asia Pacific Regional director. In addition, thousands of AG families have lost their homes we are unsure of how many may have lost their lives.

Hurst says that the need in Myanmar is almost unimaginable and a financial strain that the national church cannot bear alone.The Myanmar church needs our support to enable them to minister to as many victims of this tragedy as possible.

This May 11, KAOG will be collecting a special offering in all our services this weekend for the relief efforts in the aftermath of the cyclone in Myanmar. We’ll channel the funds primarily through WAGRA (World AG Relief Agency).
