Saturday, December 18 – Burma
Economically paralyzed from COVID-19 shutdowns, people suffering even greater lack and hunger after the Feb. 1 military takeover were happy to hear the gospel when local missionaries brought rice and other foods. Workers established a new church in the area after 23 people received Christ as Lord and Savior. In another area struck by flooding, a ministry worker and his wife had a burden to share Christ with villagers and brought them the gospel even though they had no food to offer; their ministry later provided funds for food and other relief items as well as gospel outreach. Workers throughout the country need donations of $35 or $70 for such wholistic ministry. They request prayer for protection from bullets, coronavirus and persecution.
