Dear friends,

Thank you for your love, support, and prayers. Here are photos of the teams finishing up their training as they prepare to go on relief missions to areas under attack and threat of attack by the Burma Army. This year we had men and women from Arakan, Chin, Lahu, Lisu, Kachin, Karen, Karenni, Naga, and Shan ethnic groups representing eastern, western, northern, and southern Burma. The theme of the training is love and to help the people and get the news out.

Thank you and God bless you,

Dave, family, and teams
