This weekend, please remember the people of Myanmar in your prayers and offerings. It is still unclear how many people have lost their lives, and also unclear how the government of Myanmar will serve to help or hinder the international response efforts. ELCA International Disaster Response has been mobilized, and assessments are already underway by our partners in the region: Action by Churches Together and Church World Service. As funds are collected, these partners are putting together an implementation plan for how we can be most helpful, given the realities of the Myanmar political situation. The fact that multiple Action by Churches Together partners were already in place in Myanmar will be very helpful. Here is a bulletin insert you can use to inform and mobilize your congregation on both the Myanmar Cyclone and the World Food Crisis.
