Return of a Samaritan

Return of a Samaritan
Brother Chan is a true Samaritan from Firefly Mission (FFM). Soon after Myanmar was hit by Cyclone Nargis about a year ago, Brother Chan started helping the casualties there who were affected by this natural disaster.
A lot of hard work has been put in to help the villagers to regain their confidence to live and help rebuild the place.

A number of padi fields, new schools, clinics, water systems, etc, were also built since last year. This photo is one the school just completed recently.
Yesterday, 23 May 09, at about 6:40pm, a few of us were at T1 to see the return of Brother Chan. Upon his arrival, he immediately pull out a photo of a newly built school to show us. We then proceed to a nearby Kopitiam to have dinner and have a short meeting and hear some update from him.

FFM was quite fortunate to receive quite a substantial amount of donation from the well-wishers from all over. A number of new schools, clinics, etc, have been built since the disaster hit the country. The latest update is that there should be funding left to build another 4 schools and a bridge.
