Myanmar Standoff

Word: junta
Pronunciation: \'hun-tə\
Definition: a council or committee for political or governmental purposes; especially: a group of persons controlling a government especially after a revolutionary seizure of power

One of my friends commented: "'Junta' is a fun word to say, but a harsh government to live under."

Please continue to pray for open doors for aid to reach Myanmar. The UN plane that landed with 38 tons of food was promptly intercepted by the junta and the supplies moved into government buidings for the junta "to distribute as needed." One may argue that the junta is indeed distributing it, but those who have watched the junta for any length of time aren't believing that. The UN has suspended additional flights and supplies at this time.

PRAY - Only God can open doors at this time for funds and supplies and people to arrive in Myanmar. We need a miracle.

Promises: Proverbs 21:1 The king's heart is like channels of water in the hand of the LORD; He turns it wherever He wishes.
