Once upon a time many years ago, a man and his wife lived in the countryside in Japan. He made his living cutting, growing and selling timber, and she looked after the house. They were very happy except for one thing, and that was that they had no children. One day the man was in the mountains cutting timber, and his wife was washing clothes in a river near their house.

Recently, we received a note of thanks from the diocese of Mytikyina for the donation we gave towards the completion of St. Michael's Church at Brigade Hill in Ka chyi Htu parish, Myanmar. Construction work was completed by the end of February 2016, and the new chapel was blessed by the chancellor, Fr. Paul Lum Dau, on April 8, 2016.
