Fifty-five churches and 10,000 members exist in Myanmar, a country gravely affected by flooding as a result of monsoon rains. Of those churches, 75% have been affected, whether damaged or destroyed.
The river pictured in northwest Myanmar is ordinarily a couple hundred feet across. It swelled to over half a mile and more in places and is only one symptom of destructive flooding nationwide.
