After being shackled for three days and fined for buying a banana from a Christian vendor, Maung Cia sought out a pastor in a neighbouring village. The pastor shared the Gospel with Maung and two of his friends, and they accepted Christ.
Maung then led 10 other villagers to Jesus and invited the pastor to lead a worship service in his village. Midway through the service, Buddhist villagers severely beat the pastor and stoned the worshippers. Village leaders later forced five families out of the village.
VOM is providing the families with food and housing assistance. “Now as much as I can I’m sharing the Good News and I will continue to do so,” Maung said. “Please remember us in your prayers. Thank you for your support and your love. God bless you.”

- Praise God for taking the barbaric and unjust punishment inflicted on Maung, to bring about a spiritual awakening.
- Pray for those who oppose the Lord and His Good News in the area, that He will use the witness of these new believers to encourage others to repentance and salvation.
- Pray the families affected may be strengthened in their faith and be mightily encouraged as they see the hand of God at work.
