Report from My Two Advisees from Myanmar (Burma)

Yangon, Myanmar, Wednesday

Snow and Cho Too, my two seminarians from Myanmar, ask our prayers for peace and non-violence in Burma and for God’s protection. A curfue was recently imposed. Snow talked by phone with her mom on Tuesday and her mom has been stockpiling food. Snow says that the protest movement is spreading beyond Buddhists to others in the country, including Christians. Yesterday the military violently dispersed crowds during peaceful protests. Several Buddhist monks were beaten, and some were killed. Snow reports that now, there is no phone service or internet available in the country. Please pray for Snow and Cho Too and their families at home.
