Myanmar Baptists Provide Cyclone Relief

One of the big tragedies of this past month is how the paralysis of Burmese military government has impeded disaster relief efforts in this southeast Asian country. One of the few avenues by which aid is currently reaching cyclone victims in Burma is via the Myanmar (Burmese) Baptist Convention, a fully indigenous association which is recognized by the Burmese government and is well connected with many of the communities that have been affected by this disaster. You can read about the heroic relief efforts being conducted by the Myanmar Baptists here and follow the latest updates on the crisis here.
