FBR: Good News Among the Displaced in Burma During the Christmas Season

FBR REPORT: Good News Among the Displaced in Burma During the Christmas Season
Karen State, Burma
21 December, 2008

Dear Friends,

Thanks for all of your love and help. We are sending you these photos from an area of displaced Karen people in Eastern Burma. In spite of the attacks and oppression the people here continue to rebuild their homes and lives, and now celebrate the Christmas season.

These photos show some of the multi-ethnic relief teams from different parts of Burma who have come together to be with displaced families in the conflict areas. Along with the Good Life Club program and medical treatment, we've also had a wedding, as one relief team member married a local lady who had been helping to support the Advanced Training. They are very happy, and so are we as we share these moments of love and celebration with them and the Karen people.

God bless you,
