Apparently, the military junta was targeting Christian ministers because they were playing such a key role in the protests. If they could not find the minister, they arrested their wife or children. Our minister reported how many Christians were fleeing to India. But they decided to stay but they did go hide in the jungle.
Because of that we had no communication for over 6 weeks. Praise God I just got a report. They are OK for now. They just returned to the orphanage because many of the children got diarrhea in the jungle. They found some of their neighbors had dug foxholes to seek some protection from the threat of bombings and gun fire. Kawl told me they were not going to do that but rather hide themselves in God's presence and trust Him to be their refuge.
Why on the same day I saw a report from the Free Burma Rangers. One of their men hand just been shot and killed as he sought to protect a village. In addition, one of their biggest challenges is they shut the banks down. Western Union does not work either. The military is trying to starve the people into submission.
Join us in praying with and for them.
- Psalms 46:10-11 Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge.
Proverbs 1:33 33 But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil."
Psalms 125 Those who trust in the LORD
Are like Mount Zion,
Which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
2 As the mountains surround Jerusalem,
So the LORD surrounds His people
From this time forth and forever.
3 For the scepter of wickedness shall not rest
On the land allotted to the righteous,
Lest the righteous reach out their hands to iniquity.
4 Do good, O LORD, to those who are good,
And to those who are upright in their hearts.
5 As for such as turn aside to their crooked ways,
The LORD shall lead them away
With the workers of iniquity.
Peace be upon Israel!
