The people of Burma have suffered greatly under the appalling rule of the military junta but there is a chink of light in the freedom of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. There is a small but very lively Anglican Church in Burma, with a strong following amongst the Karen in particular. I have visited them on a number of occasions and have known a number of the previous Archbishops. Indeed I was at the consecration of Archbishop Andrew a decade ago.
My family provided money to buy a paddy field which provides rice for the students at St John's boarding school. It cuts the cost of buying rice and by the looks of the photo below my mother received it looks like a good crop.
