Tim Costello to Visit the Coast
Tim Costello, C E O World Vision is about to visit the Sunshine Coast as guest speaker at 106five Rhema FM's Rhemathon 2008 launch. Former Baptist minister and lawyer, he has flown to the cyclone-ravaged part of the South-Eastern part of Burma to meet with the 600 World Vision staff already over there in the aftermath of the huge disaster which has taken place...
"The cyclone that ripped through Burma was the Boxing Day tsunami all over again ", he said. His predictions of the rising death toll are in excess of the already estimated 200.000. " The Burma military government's figure of 40,000 missing people could be a code that 40,000 have already died".he said. "At every level it is a very horrifying picture and the fact that Myanmar (Burma) is a very poor country intensifies the suffering"
