As you may or may not know, I have already got my next major excursion out of the country planned. While this should not come as too much of a surprise, where I am going may. I’m going with a group of young adults from the Anglican Diocese of British Columbia to Myanmar/Burma next year. We will be going as a part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of their Anglican young people’s association because our diocese has a partner relationship with theirs. As a part of this partnership, fifteen people from there are supposed to be coming to visit us this week. Unfortunately, due to the stupidity (? – sorry having a difficult time coming up with a better adjective than that) of our Canadian government, only four of the group has been issued visas to come. The other eleven are currently sitting in Thailand, waiting. For these people to come here is not an easy task, now our government has gone and made it more difficult. Pray for them.
