Further to my recent post on the displaced Karen people on the Thai-Burmese border is this update and invitation to all to attend some special meetings next year.
Rev. Dr. Saw Simon, of the Mae La Camp writes:
To all our dear brothers and sisters in the Lord.
Greetings to you all in the most precious name of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ from all of us here at the KKBC in the camps and the IDP areas.
Thank you so much for praying for us. The Lord answers our prayers and by the grace of God we were able to have our KKBC Board of Management Mid-year meeting successfully held from October 8 to 12, 2008 and concluded with a consecration /dedication service on Sunday, October 12, 2008 at 6:00 pm.
We are pleased to inform you that we are planning to have our Silver Jubilee/the 25th Anniversary celebration of the KKBC and the 23rd Graduation Exercises of the KKBBSC held from March 25 to 29, 2009 and would like to humbly and cordially invite you to come, visit, encourage and join and rejoice and celebrate with us during these special occasions and see what the Lord has done, is doing and will be doing for our Karen people. We want to be channel of blessings to others as we have been receiving God’s bountiful blessings throughout the years through our brothers and sisters around the world. May God bless you all and use you all mightily for the spreading of the Gospel and God’s Kingdom and for the ministry of helping the poor and needy brothers and sisters around the world.
“Let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Galatians 6:9.”
Thank you all so much and may God’s richest blessings rest upon each and every one of you.
Sincerely in Christ’s Service among the displaced people in the camps in Thailand and the internally displaced people in our own Land/Country (Kawthoolei).
Rev. Dr. Saw Simon
Principal of the KKBBSC/Secretary of the KKBC

This is a good opportunity for friends of the Karen and people who have not visited the camp to accept this invitation and remember the more than 150,000 displaced people who have been living in camps for over twenty-years.
