 This smmer my wie and I, along with or three daghtersand Bob Marley, or energetic labradoodle climbed amontain in Songdar, Norway. From the top o this peak,which oerlooked Lster Fjord, we were srronded bymajestic beaty and elt close to the athor o loe. As wehiked, I reected on loe and its demands.What is the power o loe? What is it that makes loeisible and nstoppable? Some may say it is sentiment andothers, prayer. I beliee it is neither. Sentiment is neededand prayer is essential to the mechanics o loe, bt oncethe closet o prayer is closed, how is loe eshed ot? Howwill people in London, Ackland, Sydney, Birmingham,Melborne, and Christchrch nderstand loe's griptoday? How will the people o Brma nderstand that loecannot be stolen by a dictatorship?Jess oercame eil with good, bt it reqired hisdeath. Now that's powerl loe: a person gies their lie sothat others may lie. This is the complete opposite o howGeneral Than Shwe and his 500,000 soldiers rle Brma. The might they wield is reckless and absie.Yo will see some examples o that powerl loe inthis magazine. Start Corlett writes abot or work withShan people to make loe real; the determined actionsthat bring hope and lie to thosands o lnerable people.Read his article and deotion on Habakkk. It will blessyo. St helps me see what the power o loe is all abot.Or team gies 150% to bring edcation and capacityto the children o Brma. Read Sonya's article on how theirtenacity and commitment to make God's loe isible hasreslted in more than 80,000 children, een kids on the rnand in hiding rom the regime, haing the chance to learnmaths, reading and science in Karen State.Grace International School is jst one good exampleo the hndreds o people who make what we do possible. The money the stdents raised meant that loe had a gastank, a pair o shoes and a representatie. We eatred thearticle abot their eent or yor encoragement.As we at Partners work to bring Christ and His loeto the hills o Karen State, the montains o Shan Stateand into the plains o Brma's millions, we depend on orpartnership with yo.I remember this eeryday whether I am in the jngle,in Thailand or on a montain in Norway. As yo trn thesepages, celebrate with s His powerl loe. Celebrate theact that the people o Brma hae seen the light o loeand will eer be changed by it.STEvE GuMAERCEO, Partners Relie & Deelopment
