Pastor in Wa State, Myammar, imprisoned for sharing the gospel

Pastor Sam often accompanied his wife to the market where she sold fresh fruit and vegetables. They would take the opportunity to share the gospel to those they met at the market.

Many people converted to Christianity and religious authorities decided to arrest Pastor Sam. He fled before they were able to arrest him so they arrested his wife instead and burned their entire stock of Bibles.

When Pastor Sam heard about his wife’s arrest, he returned to take her place in prison and served 2 months of hard labour in a prison camp before his release.

According to VOM contacts, the situation in the region of Wa State is very difficult for Christians right now.

Pray that Pastor Sam and his wife will not be intimidated but will continue to share the gospel and the love of Jesus to the community. Pray that God will provide for all their needs as well as the needs of their ministry. Pray that there will be a greater supply of Bibles to replace those that were burned.

Pray that God will strengthen believers in Wa State to stand firm in their faith. Pray that God will soften the hearts of those who have been persecuting Christians and bring them to a saving knowledge of Him.

Please share this prayer request.
