Cyclone Nargis 10 – CTF Thailand in Myanmar

CTF Thailand just completed its eighth mission into Myanmar in the wake of Cyclone Nargis (5/2008).

I am presently in Bangkok, Thailand at the CTF-(vice) Provinces 1 Meeting. I have been blessed to have the opportunity to listen to the Thai representatives of the CTF and Theresia Sinaga from Indonesia as they recount their experiences of the various missions into Myanmar – the joys and the difficulties. I hope to experience some of them in Myanmar myself – maybe in January. Stay tuned for news about that possibility and a more detailed report on this most recent mission of CTF Thailand into Myanmar.
