Myanmar (Burma) is a country torn by natural and man-made disasters. The nation successfully elected a new government after half a century under brutal military rule, and now refugees are preparing to return to their home villages. But military campaigns continue against many ethnic minorities—which make up 40 percent of the population. Since 2011, hundreds of thousands have been displaced by the violence. Meanwhile, citizens are still recovering from the devastating effects of 2008's Cyclone Nargis, which destroyed livelihoods and killed 140,000 people, as well as more recent storms.
As Myanmar struggles to rebuild and find peace, please pray with us for the Lord's mighty hand to bring healing and hope.
