Myanmar: Christians Warned

Myanmar evangelists

The people in the photo above are evangelists in Myanmar (Burma). Do you notice anything about them? If you said they all have shaved heads, you are correct

In the area where the evangelists serve the Lord, officials have warned Christians not to meet. They have closed churches and removed crosses from the buildings. Many pastors, evangelists and church members have been arrested, and others are missing.

The 14 evangelists in the photo were among the Christians who were arrested. The authorities shaved their heads so people would know who they are. Then they released them.

“We’re praying and trying to fight against fear,” a VOM contact said. “But it’s very difficult to do.” Pray for strength for the believers and Christian leaders in the region.
