DOI Update November
The children are provided with nutritious meals three times in a day and purified drinking water. Three times meat provided including eggs and a variety of vegetables each week. They are also provided with season fruits and snacks once a week.
The price of rice, a food staple and other commodities are still rising due to the current political unrest. The prices increased have made lives even harder for the million internally displaced people who have fled their home due to the fighting. Skyrocketing commodities prices affected the shops as well. People tend to reduce food and general costs amid low income and inflation. We still use firewood and a generator for cooking meals when there is a power outage.
The children go to school every day (Monday-Friday) 5 days a week. They do their homework and study at home according to the curriculum of our home. We try our best every kid receives a good quality education and gains the skills and knowledge when they are matured.
Sarah goes to university every day and we are praying for a motorcycle for her transport.
The flu season is still occurring in Myanmar. Children are particularly vulnerable to the flu, but they are fast to get back to normal. Recently Ruth, Daisy, Robin and Titus were sick for a few weeks but after taking the doctor’s treatment they all have recovered.
We are so thankful to God for His protection and His care in so many ways. The children are provided with vitamins every month. We are taking care of every one of our children’s health, providing them with healthy foods, making sure they get enough sleep and exercise and ensure their safety.
Children Spiritual Lives:
Daily devotions are time spent each day dedicated to relating with God. It’s a time of praising, preaching, teaching, reading the Bible, doing a Bible study accompanied by a time of prayer. This time is meant to further our knowledge of one another as well as give us enjoyment. We have each day an amazing outpouring of God’s Spirit in praising, worshipping, reading Bibles and drawing closer to God daily. We enjoy devotion time altogether.
All the children enjoy going to church every Sunday morning and performing at church.
As birthday celebrations are very special, we celebrate each child’s birthday every month at our home. This month, Hannah’s birthday was celebrated with giving thanks to God, prayers and eating candy and snacks.
We celebrated sweet December with fried rice cake and cooked a BBQ. It was very fun and a nice treat for everyone.
Update on the current crisis in Myanmar: (Burma)
Myanmar is currently ruled by the military junta that seized power in a coup on February 1, 2021. Since the military seized power, the people of Myanmar have faced extreme hardships. Millions of people have been forced to leave their own homes. Thousands of people are suffering from hunger and facing the frightening reality of having to survive without health or medical care. The internal political instability has worsened the situation.
Intense fighting between Myanmar’s military junta forces and People Defence Force (PDF) have been ongoing these days in the villages and city where we live. Transport, power, electricity, and internet services have been disrupted so we can’t get on the internet very often.
The military rulers of Myanmar have jailed thousands of people in their continuing efforts to crush all dissenting views. Many of Myanmar’s 55 million people live in poverty and suffer from ongoing human rights violations. Those who express dissenting views face harassment, arbitrary arrest, torture, imprisonment, and sometimes even extrajudicial executions. Thousands of people are in poor health and do not receive proper medical treatment. Many were tortured during their initial interrogation and detention, and still risk torture as a punishment at the hands of prison officers.
Demonstrators that were involved in organizing and participating in the protests were detained by government security forces, and had their homes searched without arrest or search warrants. In cities and townships nationwide, demonstrators who peacefully assembled to express their dissent were continually and violently dispersed, beaten, and detained by government security forces. Myanmar currently has at least 12,158 political prisoners detained, one of the highest of such populations worldwide.
The situation is quite dire, but we know that God is in control. He is sovereign and capable of totally changing the situation in the near future. Thanks for praying for God’s protection over our home and the miracle of peace for Myanmar.
