The Karens in Burma

Just a month ago, we started off the year by requesting prayer for Burma. Thank you for praying. The need has become even more obvious as a few days ago, we received an email from a local pastor about houses numbering 200, belonging to the Burmese Karen tribe, being burned.

The displaced Karens are now at the Burmese border. The Thai army allowed some of them to cross over to Thailand but around 3,000 Karens are still in Burma and without homes or food. The ones who crossed the Thai border are getting food provided by the UN.

Please pray for the Karens in Burma at this time; for them to have hope and see the Lord’s love at this time, for the provision of their basic needs (food, clothing, shelter), for the oppression to stop, for a place to call ‘home’. Thank you, bless you.
