Pastor Tun Nu was last seen alive on the evening of 19 January, when an armed rebel group forced him to leave his home, telling Nu their leader wanted to question him. Pastor Nu had been a missionary with Gospel for Asia in a troubled area of Myanmar.
“He was killed along with several others who had been kidnapped by a rebel army in the Rakhine state of Myanmar, an area torn by Rohingya conflict. During the nearly two weeks Pastor Tun was missing, the local police and government armies were unable to trace him,” Gospel for Asia (GFA) explained in a press release.
“We are heartbroken to learn of Pastor Tun’s death, and we ask you to join us in praying for his wife and family, and his church at this time, that they may know God’s comfort, peace and strength,” said Dr KP Yohannan, the founder of GFA.
Nu was married with three children and served as the pastor of a congregation in Myanmar’s Rakhine state. During 20 years as a pastor, he consistently shared the love of Christ with many and started several fellowships.
