Love In Action

Master is always deeply concerned when disasters occur in any part of the world. Upon hearing news of such events, She immediately provides financial assistance and sends relief teams. Through such efforts, Her unconditional love and support are conveyed to those affected, thus reducing their suffering while helping them to rebuild their lives.

In recognition of the selfless actions of governments, organizations and relief workers around the globe, Master expresses Her gratitude as follows: "Thank you, all the international help that brings care and necessities to afflicted victims. Thank you all the relief workers for taking time and forsaking your own comfort, even traveling great distance on unfavorable roads and conditions to bring love and assistance to people in a time of need. May Heaven bless you abundantly for your generosity and noble sacrifice."

    Bringing God’s Help in the Aftermath of Flooding in Thailand

    By Thailand Relief Team (Originally in Thai)

    Heavy rainfall that started at the end of August 2014 caused widespread flooding in at least 17 provinces in Thailand with six lives lost. By September 1, though water had receded in many areas, the situation in parts of Chiang Rai, Chiang Mai and Phichit remained severe.

    After receiving Master’s loving instruction to help the affected people and a THB 237,454 (US$7,420) fund, our Association members in Thailand contributed THB 8,570 (US$268) and a relief team from Chiang Mai Center immediately set out to look for the most vulnerable people. Accompanied by the local officials, our team was able to locate five households in need in Ban Mai Suksan, Tat Kwan Sub-District, Phaya Mengrai District, Chiang Rai Province on September 19. Two homes had been completely destroyed and were unlivable. Three others had been damaged, two severely enough that the families either had to relocate or use a kitchen and bathroom in a neighbor’s house.

    Upon receiving the much-needed funds for building or repairing their houses, the families expressed gratitude to Master for the unexpected gifts. The relief team members were also very grateful for Master’s guidance.
