Larry worked as an investigator with a law firm before doing a stint with the U.S. Peace Corps, where he developed a love for asian culture and a desire to devote his life to pursuing justice for oppressed people. This passion eventually led him to join the Free Burma Rangers in Myanmar, a nation torn by war and an ethnic cleansing campaign carried out by the Burmese Military. Free Burma Rangers is an organization that seeks to share the love of Jesus with people who are oppressed. Their mission is to give help, hope and love to oppressed people and to expose human rights atrocities. Larry serves as the Thailand/Burma-Information & Reporting Director/Ethnic Relief Teams Coordinator helping to train Myanmarese “rangers’ who operate medical field clinics, assist refugees, and collect evidence of human rights atrocities.
