Leading House Churches are being targeted in China

Tuesday, June 22, 2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) Our brothers and sisters in China desperately need our prayers. The basic message that CCP is sending to all house churches throughout China is your days are numbered, submit. Please join us, tonight, in a prayer conference call for the persecuted Chinese Church hosted by Persecution Watch.

(Bitter Winter) There is no pause nor mercy in the CCP campaign to crack down on independent house churches. The limited tolerance granted to some of them in the pre-Xi-Jinping era is gradually coming to an end. Either the house churches join the government-controlled Three Self Church, or their leaders go to jail. It also happens that house churches are labeled as xie jiao, “heterodox teachings,” and their elders and pastors prosecuted under Article 300 of the Chinese Criminal Code, originally conceived to crack down on banned new religious movements.

Beijing’s Zion Church is one of the most famous house churches in China. In 2018, it was officially “dismantled” and banned by the authorities, which tried to bankrupt it by imposing extravagant fines. It was also accused of being a xie jiao. Much to the CCP’s surprise, however, Zion Church did not disappear. It lost its place of worship, as the CCP persuaded the landlord to cancel the lease, but devotees continued to meet in private homes. A believer told Bitter Winter that there are “hundreds” of Zion Church meeting places, not all of them in Beijing, and the total membership may be in excess of 25,000.

Obviously, this is not something the CCP can tolerate. Two Zion Church preachers, Qie Jiafu and Huang Chunzi, have been arrested in their homes in the last days of April. It is unclear whether they will be formally incriminated, but believers are afraid that this is just the beginning of a new crackdown on their church.

In March, Bitter Winter reported about the attack against another significant house church, Renai Reformed Church, in the prefecture-level city of Guiyang, in Guizhou province. When the church’s elder, Zhang Chunlei, went to the police station to negotiate the release of the devotees arrested during a police raid in a hotel where they had gathered for praying, he was arrested himself.

Elder Zhang should have been released after 11 days of administrative detention, but this did not happen. When his wife and the Christians of the Renai Reformed Church protested, they were told that Zhang’s case was being investigated. On May 1, he was formally indicted for “religious fraud” and placed under criminal detention at Yunyan Branch Detention Center. Houses of Renai Church members were also searched by the police, and religious items were confiscated.

On May 7 in Chengdu, Sichuan province, yet another pastor of Early Rain Covenant Church, Wu Wuqing, was arrested for “disturbing the public order” after officiating the funeral of a church member. Wu had already been arrested in April, and Early Rain’s leader, pastor Wang Yi, is currently serving a nine-year sentence in jail.

These are significant messages sent to all house churches throughout China. Unless they submit to the government, their days are numbered.

“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.” Hebrews 13:3

Prayer Points

  • Pray for God’s will to be done in China as it is in heaven.
  • Pray that, through prayer with King Jesus, the Chinese church will be strengthened, and evil attacks will be nullified.
  • Pray for the gospel to be preached, disciples to be built, and Chinese Christians to become leaders in prayer to carry out the Great Commission.
  • Pray that, this summer, Chinese church leaders will be able to rest and refresh themselves in God’s Word and through fellowship with one another.
  • Pray for Chinese Christians currently facing state pressure, persecution, jail and death for their beliefs and actions. Pray for them to be courageous and trust in God, not man.
  • Pray for Chinese children from Christian families. Pray that they will come to love, know, and follow Jesus, and be leaders for the next generation.
  • Pray for Chinese believers to be people of prayer, who take all their anxieties to King Jesus, and joyfully rest in his protection.
  • Let this be the desire to pray for us here in America too!

We will also Pray for: 

Leah Sharibu and Alice that they will be set free from Boko Haram captivity.

  • Leah Sharibu was kidnapped along with 109 other students on February 19, 2018 when Boko Haram attacked a boarding school in the city of Dapchi, Maiduguri Diocese, in north-eastern Nigeria. A month later, some of the girls died in captivity and all the others were released, except Leah. She was the only Christian in the group.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah was kidnapped during the Rann attack on March 1, 2018. She was a nurse working with Unicef and is a mother of two.

Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison, for his family, the children, and the church in China. 

  • On December 28 the police raided the Early Rain Church and arrested Pastor Wang Yi, his wife Jiang Rong, and ten elders of the well-known 750-member church for holding “illegal” services. Some 100 believers were detained, questioned, and later released. Pastor Wang’s wife was also released. Pastor Wang remained in detention.

Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime seeking asylum.

Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, for his release and his family as their persecution continues. 

  • Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years. Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani converted to Christianity at the age of 19 and leads a 400-member house church in Rasht, Iran. Since 2006, Iranian authorities have consistently harassed and detained Pastor Nadarkhani and his family. In 2010, the authorities sentenced him to death for apostasy before acquitting him in 2012. Pastor Nadarkhani was tried again in 2017 on false charges of “acting against national security” and promoting “Zionist Christianity,” for which he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment. By July 2018, plainclothes agents raided Pastor Nadarkhani’s home to execute the sentence, beating and apprehending him and using a taser gun on one of his sons. He is now incarcerated at the notorious Evin prison near Tehran.

The harvest 

  • “And he said to them, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2

I am looking forward to praying with you. 

The Lord’s servant,

Nadia Dybvik, Persecution Watch Prayer Conference Call Leader

What is Persecution Watch?

Persecution Watch is a U.S. national prayer conference call ministry that prays specifically for the global Persecuted Church. For over a decade, Blaine Scogin led this national network of believers who faithfully pray for the persecuted and the global harvest for the Kingdom of God. The group meets via a free call-in service every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday night at 9pm Eastern time in the United States (please check your time zone). Blaine also served as Prayer Director for Voice of the Persecuted, and the missions became one. Brother Blaine passed into glory on December 26, 2019. It was truly a blessing for all of us to serve alongside this dear man of God and he will be greatly missed. The prayer mission of Persecution Watch remains an important part of our mission. Voice of the Persecuted is committed to continue the prayer conference call for the persecuted along with the dedicated Persecution Watch prayer warrior team.

Prior to the passing of Brother Blaine, he confirmed the passing of the torch as prayer conference call leader to Nadia Dybvik. Nadia has a burdened heart for the persecuted and is a prayer warrior standing in the gap for them. She joined the Persecution Watch prayer team in 2013 and has been part of the core ever since. Before becoming the prayer call leader, she served in the role of prayer moderator since 2015. Blaine chose Nadia for her faithfulness to pray for the persecuted and her strong commitment to the Persecution Watch mission. We are blessed not only with her gift of prayer, but her genuine love for every brother and sister in Christ that comes on the call to pray. May the Lord continue to bless Nadia and the prayer team in the mission and their personal lives.

“Pray for us” is the number one request that we hear from the persecuted. As the members of the first century Church were moved by the Holy Spirit to pray, we too must continue to serve those suffering persecution by lifting them up to the Lord through prayer.

On occasion, persecuted brothers and sisters have been invited on the conference call to share the trials they are facing. The team serves to encourage them by washing their feet in Spirit led prayer. Time is often reserved for those on the call to ask questions. We believe this helps to gain a better understanding of the situation that persecuted Christians endure in their specific nations. Q&A also helps us to focus our prayers based on their current needs.

Persecution Watch also hosts callers who want to pray united from other nations. If your heart is perplexed by the sufferings of our persecuted brothers and sisters, you no longer need to pray alone.

We welcome all who desire to pray for the persecuted church and consider it a joy to pray together with you. If you are new to the call and cannot find your voice, listen in and pray silently or on mute. We are grateful and thank the Lord for bringing us all together to pray in agreement for our persecuted family in Christ. We can all be prayer warriors on this call!

God bless and protect you in your faithfulness to serve.

Praying for Believers in Uzbekistan

(Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, June 17, 2021 in a prayer call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

UZBEKISTAN: Population 33.2 million, Christians 345,000 [1%]

Though Uzbekistan has long been a highly restricted country, its government has made incremental reforms in religious freedom in recent years. Though restrictions on churches and Christian organizations have eased, evangelism and conversion are opposed, and it is still illegal to distribute evangelistic literature in public. This improvement, with unity among believers across several Christian denominations and a focus on training and equipping Christian leaders, is a positive development for the small number of Uzbek churches and Christians.

83 percent of Uzbeks are Sunni Muslims. 2 percent are Christians, including a small fraction of 1 percent who are evangelicals. Many are irreligious as a result of suffering under decades of atheistic Communist rule until the fall of the Soviet Union. The government fines Christian converts from Islam, and families often reject family members who become Christians.

Converts from Islam are persecuted by their families, communities and sometimes by the government. Evangelical Christians are considered religious extremists and have been fined and detained for worship, which the government sometimes considers to be illegal religious activity. Orthodox churches meet openly and legally, but most evangelical Christians meet in unregistered groups. Uzbekistan’s government once routinely imprisoned Christians, but fines and short detentions have since become more common.

Bibles are difficult to obtain and, for some Christians, risky to own.    

Prayer Points

  • Pray the leadership of President Shavkat Mirziyoyev will bring welcome changes for the country’s Christian population.
  • Pray the Holy Spirit will encourage, equip and empower believers facing pressure and persecution.
  • Request ongoing protection and nourishment of church leaders in Uzbekistan, who can come under immense pressure in their roles.
  •  Pray for VOM and other NGOs to distributes Christian literature and equips pastors and evangelists with ministry tools that expand their outreach and other ministry work.    
  • Pray that pastors and leaders will lead by example.
  • Pray that God will heal the sick and provide for their families.
  • Pray for revival in the country.
  • Pray for the protection of Christian doctors and nurses.
  • Pray that Christians will remain strong during difficult times.     
  • Pray that opportunities will open up for believers to share the gospel with others safely.
  • Pray the Lord will give His believers safe places to worship and hear His word.
  • Pray for strong internet coverage and that there will great messages that will encourage believers and draw in non-believers.
  • Pray that the Lord will protect and grow His church, that the Lord will bind the forces of darkness and make His church visible to all.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord: 

  • Leah Sharibu, prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for her release.

  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.

  • Pray for Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.

  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped from Iran and praying to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.

  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in Vietnam

6/3/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, June 3, in a prayer call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

Vietnam: Population 98.3 million, Christians 8.9 million [9.1%]

Vietnam has a repressive Communist government that actively restricts Christians’ worship in many ways. While Christian worship is legal, the government views Christians and churches as a threat to their power and control.

Minority tribal groups, such as the Hmong, generally face the most violent and harsh forms of persecution, while Christians in urban centers experience pressure and harassment instead of violent opposition. Churches continue to grow as believers faithfully reach out despite these challenges.

New Christians in tribal areas are often evicted from their homes and villages by local authorities. Officially recognized churches are harassed by the government in various ways and are expected to report their activities and teachings to the government.

All churches face government opposition when they evangelize and attempt to conduct community events. Within rural and tribal areas, believers can often meet openly, but Christian converts are targeted for harsh persecution. Christians are denied social services, utilities and access to schools. It is legal to own a Bible, but distribution is difficult in rural areas.  

Most Vietnamese people practice a blend of ancestor worship and Buddhism. The government imposes some restrictions, while local authorities and community members violently persecute Christians in rural areas. Christian converts are persecuted by family members.

Prayer Points

Pray that the suspicion aimed towards Christians by national and local authorities will ease, and be replaced with an appreciation of their value to society.

Pray that the suspicion aimed towards Christians by national and local authorities will ease, and be replaced with an appreciation of their value to society.

Ask that believers under pressure to renounce their faith will have the strength to cling to Jesus; may this stance powerfully speak to their neighbors and communities.

Pray that young Christians will grow in their love of Jesus, their understanding of the gospel and appreciation for the Bible, giving them a foundation for life.

Pray for new Christians who have been rejected by their families or communities. Pray also that new believers will stand strong as they face family rejection, eviction and beatings.

Pray that believers living in cities, which offer more freedom, will care for Christians in rural areas.

Pray that pastors and church leaders will continue to receive training and material support.

Pray to the Lord that He touch the hearts and minds of government officials to approve church applications to be registered = approved

Pray for Christian workers as they take great risks to distribute Bibles and train and encourage believers.

Pray that there will be unity among the Christian churches and work together for the Gospel. Pray that the government will be unable to play one group against another.

Pray for believers who are imprisoned for their faith.

Pray for the less reached Muslims and Buddhist in the Mekong delta.

Pray for strong internet coverage and that there will great messages that  will encourage believers and draw in non-believers.

Pray that the Lord will continue to help the church to continue its speedy growth, particularly among the minority tribes like the Hmong.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord:     

Leah Sharibu, prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for her release.

Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.

Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.

Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and is waiting for a visa to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.

For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in Indonesia

5/27/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, May 27, 2021 in a prayer call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

INDONESIA: Population 272.2 million, Christians 33.2 million [12.2%]

Indonesia has the largest Muslim population in the world, with a total of more than 220 million Muslims, or about 13 percent of the world’s Muslim population. While most Indonesian Muslims practice an animistic and superstitious version of Islam known as “folk” Islam, proponents of Islamic extremism have encouraged and engaged in violence against Christians. The wickedness of these attacks has led many Muslims to question their faith and to be more open to the gospel. Bold evangelists are taking advantage of this opportunity to share the gospel and lead many Muslims to faith in Christ.

82 percent of Indonesians are Sunni Muslims. 13 percent are Christians, including 3 percent evangelicals. The main persecutors in Indonesia are Islamic extremists, who influence moderate Muslims. While the government does not normally persecute Christians, neither does it consistently defend them.

Bibles are available in most cities, but not in many rural locations. Indonesians can legally own a Bible, and the Indonesia Bible Society prints Bibles inside the country. However, many live in hostile and remote areas where Bibles are unavailable, and others cannot afford to purchase one.

At around 7:30 on the morning of May 11, in Indonesia’s Central Sulawesi province, a normal day turned into a nightmare as terror struck Indonesian Christians once again. Our partners in Indonesia tell us that four believers were beheaded by Islamic extremists—in the same region where four believers were beheaded and burned alive in November 2020.                                                                                                                        

Open Doors local partner Ari Hartono* says the attack comes as a shock to believers in Central Sulawesi who are still reeling from the November attacks: “Central Sulawesi locals are still traumatized from the terrorist attack in Sigi last November and have not recovered yet,” he says. “They need our prayers now.”

The terrorist group, believed to be East Indonesia Mujahdin, was the first Indonesian group to pledge allegiance to the Islamic State group

in 2014 and the attack on the 99 percent Christian village is now being seen as religious persecution. In this area, there are many farmers who live in the forest far from the village. The terrorists targeted them.

  • Pray that the government will control those inciting social unrest, especially against Christians.
  • Pray that the Lord will restrain, convict the radical Muslims, prevent the radical Muslims from spreading their terror throughout the nation of Indonesia.
  • Pray for local pastors facing financial crisis, especially for those who rent their worship space.
  • Pray that church leaders and mission organizations will work together for the sake of the gospel.
  • Pray that Christians in Indonesia will be salt and light to their Muslim neighbors.
  • Pray that believers will learn to depend on God, even amid persecution.
  • Pray that front-line workers will find creative ways to carry out their ministry.
  • Pray for Christians who leave Islam and are heavily pressured by family and community to renounce their new faith in Jesus. Ask God to give them the support they need—as well as access to a Bible and the training to read it and grow.
  • Pray that churches who are trying to obtain locations for worship would find favor with the government and be granted freedom to gather and worship in peace.
  • Pray that God would give ministry leaders and volunteers the boldness and perseverance they need to both lead and serve the church in Indonesia.
  • Pray for Christian children and teens, who often face discrimination and isolation for their faith. Ask God to give them hope, to strengthen their faith—and to know that they are not alone in Christ.
  • Pray for good internet access that unbelievers are exposed to the Gospel message as well as for believers to be strengthened in faith and knowledge
  • Pray for the protection of churches, the safety for the worshipers.
  • Pray that the Lord will continue to mightily add to the numbers of believers and have His hand of protection on the church.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  •  Leah Sharibu, prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for her release.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.
  •  Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and now waiting for a visa to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.
  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

Persecution Watch: Praying for Believers in Myanmar

5/20/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) You are invited to join us on Thursday, May 20, 2021 in a prayer call for the persecuted church hosted by Persecution Watch. 

Myanmar: Population 54.8 million, Christians 4.3 million [8%]

Religious nationalism is especially strong in Myanmar and drives much of the persecution of Christians. There is an increasing emphasis on Buddhism, to the exclusion of all other religions. Converts to the Christian faith often face persecution from their families and communities for leaving, or “betraying,” the system of belief they grew up in. Communities who aim to stay “Buddhist only” make life for Christian families impossible by not allowing them to use community resources such as water.

Well-established churches have been attacked, and in some instances, Buddhist monks have invaded church compounds and built Buddhist shrines inside. Non-traditional church groups experience opposition too, especially those located in rural areas and/or are known for evangelistic activity. The government tries to act against extremist Buddhist monks, but sends mixed signals, since it has become clear that extremist monks enjoy the support of the army.

Myanmar is the scene of the longest civil war in the world, which began in 1948. Although much media attention has been given to the plight of Rohingya Muslims, the ongoing war against insurgent groups—which affects, among others, the states of Kachin, Karen and Shan (all of which have a strong Christian minority)—have gone largely unnoticed. The predominantly Christian Chin State was also affected by fighting. Christians are vulnerable to persecution by insurgent groups and the army, and more than 100,000 Christians in the north live in Internal Displacement Camps (IDPs) where they are deprived of access to food and health care.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought added challenges, since many Christians are deliberately overlooked in the distribution of government aid.

Myanmar has jumped one place from last year, reflecting the ongoing severe persecution facing many Christians. Converts continue to encounter tremendous hostility from family and the local community, while believers remain caught up in the fighting plaguing the states of Kachin, Shan and Karen, all of which have a significant Christian population, as well as predominantly Christian Chin State.

Christians in Kachin State, in the north of the country, are especially exposed to persecution. Due to the ongoing fighting, more than 100,000 people—mostly Christian—are living in internally displaced persons (IDP) camps, most of them for years, and humanitarian access to them is blocked. Fighting continues as well in neighboring Shan State, which has a large minority of Christians, especially in the north. Chin State, which is predominantly Christian, has also been the site of a great deal of conflict.

From the coronavirus to cyclones, few have faced the litany of scourges confronting the Rohingya people today. While we must assist the Rohingya to weather these storms, we cannot forget why they find themselves in such vulnerable circumstances in the first place. Almost three years ago, the Myanmar government unleashed a campaign of violence forcing the majority of the Rohingya population to flee. Now is the time to call these crimes what they are: genocide.  

In the span of a few days in May, nearly one million Rohingya refugees living in mega camps in Bangladesh faced the arrival of the coronavirus and the strongest storm ever recorded in the Bay of Bengal. The coming monsoon season threatens flooding and landslides. Hundreds more Rohingya are stranded at sea after being turned back from the shores of Malaysia and Bangladesh. Many are feared to have drowned.

This is the result of decades of persecution and the Myanmar military’s campaign of murder, mass rape, and destruction in late 2017. This Tuesday will mark three years since that mass expulsion. As these anniversaries accumulate, there is a real danger that the international community will grow accustomed to their passing. These atrocities cannot become just another chapter in the long history of state violence in Myanmar. Genocide is the gravest crime a government can commit. Accountability for that crime is essential if the Rohingya are to ever feel safe in their homeland.  

Villagers with animistic beliefs take vengeance against Christians, claiming they are angering the local spirits. Church gatherings and church buildings are allowed in many parts of the country, but tolerance varies from state to state. Active believers who share their faith face difficulties. Within tribal groups, families oppose conversion and new believers are subject to close government monitoring. Buddhist monks have actively opposed new Christian converts and evangelists. Pastors face arrest and are usually held for a few days at a time.

Bibles can be purchased and owned legally in small numbers, but most people cannot afford them. While bookstores in large cities sell Bibles, they are unavailable in many regions. Most Burmese Bibles are smuggled into the country.  

  • Pray to the Lord for the military to return power to the civilian government leaders.
  • Pray that the Lord will intervene and bring a peaceful resolution to the ongoing civil war.
  • Pray to the Lord to protect the church leaders who are often targeted by Buddhist extremists and paramilitary groups.
  • Pray to the Lord to disqualify the power hunger generals using the military for their purposes.
  • Pray for those who have left Buddhism to follow Jesus – that God will strengthen, encourage and protect them.
  • Ask that all believers in Myanmar will receive and enjoy fruitful fellowship with other Christians.
  • Pray to the Lord that all the internally displaced people, including Christians, can soon return to their native homes.
  •  Pray for NGOs like VOM to distribute church materials, Bibles and provide training to Christians and provide emergency shelter and food.
  • Pray for the release of all Christians imprisoned or held captive, and for the safety of all Christians as they go about their daily lives.
  • Pray for the protection of church buildings and safety for the worshippers
  • Pray for special protection of converts from the Buddhist faith, that they can withstand pressures from family and community.
  • Pray to give the persecuted the ability to pray for and forgive their persecutors. 
  • Pray for the medical outreach teams.
  • Pray that the Lord will continue to mightily add to the numbers of believers and have His hand of protection on the church.

Again, we want to lift up persecuted witnesses to the Lord:

  •  Leah Sharibu, prisoner of Boko Haram since 2018, pray for her release.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah, kidnapped February 2019. She is a mother of two, working as a nurse for UNICEF. Pray for her release.
  •  Pray pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison.
  • Pray for Anita, a Christian convert facing a long prison term who escaped and now waiting for a visa to go to a country where she can express her faith openly.
  • For the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani from Iran, and his family as their Persecution continues. Pastor Nadarkhani is serving the second year of his six-year sentence, recently reduced from ten years.

What is Persecution Watch?
Persecution Watch is a U.S. national prayer conference call ministry that prays specifically for the global Persecuted Church. For over a decade, Blaine Scogin led this national network of believers who faithfully pray for the persecuted and the global harvest for the Kingdom of God.

The group meets via a free call-in service every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday night at 9pm Eastern (please check your time zone).

Special Guest Speaker: Missionary to Burma

5/15/2021 (Voice of the Persecuted) Dear Prayer Warriors, Persecution Watch will host a special guest, Sara S. Zondag, a missionary to Burma (Myanmar). We invite you to hear from this dear sister on tonight’s prayer conference call.

Background:

Sara grew up in the church in rural Wisconsin. After working as a genetic counselor for a few years, she felt called to move overseas to volunteer with some Christian organizations. Sara has been based in Chiang Mai, Thailand since 2011 and has been involved in church related projects in Thailand and in cross-border medical projects with the Karen ethnic group in Burma.

Since the end of World War II, Burma (or Myanmar) has been the site of political unrest. For most of this time the country has been ruled by a military dictatorship. Myanmar has many ethnic minorities that tend to live in the border areas of the country. The main minority groups – the Karen, Shan, Kachin, Chin – have faced fighting from the Burma Army. These ethnic groups have a large proportion of Christians. Missionaries to Burma came in the 1800’s and the Holy Spirit worked in the hearts of people from these groups. Missionaries were expelled from Myanmar in the 1960’s, but the church has continued to thrive within these areas.

On February 1st, Myanmar experienced a coup. In 2015, the military regime allowed democratically elected leaders into power, with limitations. Following repeat victories by these non-military leaders in the country’s 2020 elections, the military decided to retake governmental power by force and has been committing atrocities on people from their own Burman ethnic group as well as increased attacks on ethnic minority groups. 

Prayer Points

  • A miraculous change of heart from these military leaders, soldiers, and police who are attacking their own citizens.

  • For the Burma Army to end their attacks and bombing on the Karen, Kachin, and other minority groups.

  • Safety for the internally displaced people and refugees that these attacks are creating.
  • Courage for the believers in the face of all this difficulty.

We will also Pray for: 

Leah Sharibu and Alice that they will be set free from Boko Haram captivity.

  • Leah Sharibu was kidnapped along with 109 other students on February 19, 2018 when Boko Haram attacked a boarding school in the city of Dapchi, Maiduguri Diocese, in north-eastern Nigeria. A month later, some of the girls died in captivity and all the others were released, except Leah. She was the only Christian in the group.
  • Alice Loksha Ngaddah was kidnapped during the Rann attack on March 1, 2018. She was a nurse working with Unicef and is a mother of two.

Pastor Wang Yi to be released from prison, for his family, the children, and the church in China.

Some 100 believers were detained, questioned, and later released. Pastor Wang’s wife was also released. Pastor Wang remained in detention.

Anita, an Iranian Christian, persecuted by the Islamic regime seeking asylum.
