MYANMAR | The present political situation | PLEASE PRAY

Please pray regularly for Myanmar; for the political situation and for the ministries of the Christian church in general and in particular for ministries of the four groups which make up the Advent Christian Conference of Myanmar. These four groups care for a total of 303 orphan and underprivileged children throughout the country and have a total of 37 church planters serving in many parts of the country, many of them in areas that have only recently been reached with the Gospel.

In answer to a query about the present political situation and the effect it is having on the preaching and teaching of the Gospel, we received the following comments…

“Our country politically is going back, It is very sad for the people in Myanmar. But one thing is good, because the *woman said, ” Every religion in Myanmar must worship their own god, no one should complain”. This word really is helpful us for we the Christians. In my local Church “(name given)” we also can worship very freely. It is because of the answer of your prayer for Myanmar. I do very much appreciate and would like to say “Thank you” to the prayer group who always remember us and pray for Myanmar.”

*This is a reference to Aung Sun Suu Kyi, who presently holds the position of State Counsellor, a position akin to a prime minister.

“Myanmar people’s daily life is very bad under two heads government, army and *NLD. Please pray for Myanmar, for real democracy.”

*NLD is the National League for Democracy which is the social-democratic and liberal democratic political party in Myanmar (Burma), currently serving as the governing party, which is led by Aung San Suu Kyi. In the 2015 general election, the NLD won a supermajority in both houses of the Assembly.
