FBR Report
A Mother's Story from Burma

18 January, 2006

Dear friends,

Thanks for all your prayers and help. We are in the middle of a relief mission and wanted to pass this short story on to you. The lady in the photo is named Naw Rutha, she gave birth to a baby boy in the first week of December. One week later the Burma Army came to attack and she and the other villagers fled. She is now back at her village (the village is really only simple shelters as it has been burned many times before). She is sick with high blood pressure and a heart problem but still smiles. One of our medics treated her the best we could and she invited us to stay in her home. She wants to stay in her homeland and be safe from the attacks of the Burma Army. Now she can not have both, but in spite of the danger she and her husband choose to stay.

We prayed with her and then continued on the mission. Thanks for helping us do that and thank you for your prayers for people like this mother.

God bless you, FBR

IDP mother and newborn
