Victor Vula is director and principal of Victory International School in Myanmar and leads Victory Community Chapel. He sends the following ministry update.
Since the military coup began Feb. 1, Myanmar is still in chaos; our economic and healthcare system are severely damaged.
We are now facing a deadly third wave of COVID-19. Six of our teachers are infected by the virus. Thank God they are recovering now, but two of the parents are in serious condition. They need oxygen continually. My partner in the church planting work, Pastor Zama, and his family are also now infected.
It is difficult to get oxygen, and the number of people who need oxygen is increasing. Our ministry is trying to be helpful in any way we can. We have been helping our teachers, students, church members, and other people with food, masks, PPE, medicine, test kits, etc. However, we cannot help people with oxygen. Our ministry is planning and praying to buy an oxygen concentrator, a couple of them if possible, so we can lend it to anyone who needs it. In that way we can save more lives.
One oxygen concentrator will cost us 16 to 28 lakhs ($1,000–$1,600 USD). We have limited funds, and we need the oxygen as soon as we can. Please pray for this need.
Please also pray for people who have been severely hit by flooding in the southern part of Myanmar—in the Karen, Mon, and Tanintharyi regions.
When will this nightmare end?
Victor Lal S. Vula
