Francis Horton, Baptist Global Response director for Central and South Asia, recaps contents of a disaster relief training manual being compiled by a disaster relief team from Oklahoma for use inside Myanmar for victims of Cyclone Nargis. Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members learn to assist their family, their neighbors and their coworkers following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.
When visas to enter Myanmar proved impossible to obtain, the team began training others to do the hands-on ministry for which the volunteers had the knowledge and experience."Moses never got a visa to enter the Promised Land, but he got to stand on Mount Nebo and look over into it," Porter said. A group from Texas Baptist Men who also were in Bangkok assisted the BGR team in compiling the manual."This effort will be extremely impactful above what we can imagine," Horton said.
CERT leadership coordinates with the Training Coordinator to provide three trainings per year when possible.

We expect to export it to national peoples in China, northeast India, Pakistan and Afghanistan for them to have whenever an emergency hits in their area in the future."Once the nine-page manual was completed, the BGR team conducted a 90-minute training session for a Burmese congregation in Bangkok on Sunday evening, May 18.

This new knowledge, especially about sanitation, how to prevent disease, and [about] water purification will help to do just that."On Monday, May 19, BGR team members attended the organizational meeting of a group called the Myanmar Christian Coalition for Cyclone Relief, organized by Beram Kumar, executive director of the Malaysian Center for Global Ministry.
