Urgent prayer required as military troops draw close to our partners.
Violence and conflict have been ongoing in areas our partners minister in since the coup in Myanmar earlier this year. Offering shelter and safety to children and young people in need, they provide a lifeline to so many.
For the safety of those in our partners’ care, they have had to move the children into hiding among several trusted villages. These villages continue to be supported with secret food and supply drops in the jungle.
Events have taken a turn in recent days. Thousands of Burmese soldiers have moved into the area where the children are being hidden. Heavy fighting has broken out. One team of volunteers who were bringing aid to local people were arrested over the weekend. An elderly man helping with the children was seriously wounded with a shot to the head.
In total, over 30,000 soldiers have arrived in this region.
Local leaders fear large–scale war against the various minority people groups is imminent.
Our partners simply ask for us to pray the words of Psalm 91 into these unimaginable circumstances.
Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.He will call on me, and I will answer him;I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honour him”
