I am a volunteer helping refugees in Burma, Thai refugee camps and
resettlement here in Denver. My daughter has volunteered three winters as a medic in the jungle. The SITUATION IS DIRE and the world turns a "deaf ear" to these suffering people because of China's support.Burma has access to munitions in exchange for natural resources going to China.

GRF is one of the only groups offering aid to the suffering people in Burma (Myanmar) jungle who are suffering genocide at the hands of their own army. GRF trains medics to assist and release the suffering in the jungle. They also have a medical center in place along the Thailand border to serve the area where refugee escape the horror by crossing the border into Thailand.

This winter has been especially brutal as the size of the jungle areas were diminished in several areas with invading army activities. The IDP's (internally displaced people) were uprooted (burned out), killed , raped and forced into slave labor in greater numbers.

PLEASE search your hearts and support this wonderful group in theircontinued outreach to the suffering of innocent humanity of our world?!! It will bless YOUR life in doing so....

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My daughter and I know family McNeelys who are involved with the running of GRI. I follow their activities with reception of their newsletters.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

..give them GREATER opportunity to work around the world!! (-:

Our church, Riverside is the sending church. We hear reports from Brian McNeely. IT is great to see how God is using them to teach and train the people to give medical aid at different levels. I have given money to buy Bibles so the pastors can be equppied with God's Word and be more grounded in Word and to evanelize their country. My heart is burden heavy for more Bible to be printed and handed out to the 120 pastors' congregation. I also pray for the motorcyles and bikes to be made available to them. I pray for medicine that can be given to women on delivery of their babies to prevent the babies from getting Aids. We don't need to lose a whole generation of people to this terrible disease.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Giving money to buy Bibles as a sacrifice. I am a widow but want others to love the Word as I do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

For our church and the Southern Baptist Church to become more involed in this ministry believing that God is greatly working miracles.
