OPEN HOUSE! We will be hosting a luncheon at noon on Tuesday, August 20 at our headquarters for Sonny (Dr. U Tha Nyan) that is open to the public! (The address is 3355 Plateau St., Casper, WY 82601). Sonny is the head of the YMCA in Burma (Myanmar) and a vital link in helping us support a half dozen children's homes in Burma including Ms. Emerald's home. A great friend to Vision Beyond Borders and Patrick Klein over the years, Sonny has also been an influential voice for Christ's love and peace in war-torn Burma, serving in the United Nations investigation into the Rohingya genocide. Please join us if you can to meet this wonderful brother in Christ!
Please be in prayer for the woman who manages our Women's Safe House in Romania. She was hit head-on while traveling on ministry business on August 13 and remains in a lot of back and neck pain with several fissured (cracked) ribs.
According to (https://www.marinetraffic.com/en/ais/home/centerx:-94.6/centery:29.3/zoom:10) the MSC Bilbao, the freighter carrying our shipping container of relief supplies, has just transited the Suez Canal and should be arriving in port in Jordan tomorrow! Pray that the supplies would be a blessing, and open hearts to the spiritual blessing of salvation in Christ!
Our partner in Pakistan, Azeem, is back in the US preparing to move his family to Safe Haven Children's Home. Last week he met with a number of children who he will be taking into the home when the doors officially open upon their return.
Finally, Vision Beyond Borders will be the featured Non-Profit at the 2019 Cowboy State Expo! We'll be at the East Ridge Mall in Casper, WY on Dec. 6-7 for this expo. We will need a number of volunteers to help with this fun event; if you can serve please contact us! (EJB)
