Please pray for seven Christian families from Myanmar who have been living as refugees in India. Last week, the Muslim-background believer (MBB) families were expelled from a refugee camp in which they had been taking shelter.
“The Muslims in the camp are afraid that (the families) would convert people to Christianity,” wrote our contact. “There are around 1,200 Muslim families in the camp. They need urgent help to rent land and put up tents. Even Amod*, a Rohingya MBB leader in India, cannot go near the camp to reach out to the believers.”
Myanmar is number 23 in the Open Doors World Watch List. The Muslim-majority Rohingya people are an ethnic minority in Myanmar. They have become the target of persecution from radical Buddhist groups as well as the Burmese army. MBBs in the Rohingya tribe face further persecution as they are ostracised by their own people, as well as by the Buddhist majority.
Open Doors works with local partners to support Rohingyas who choose to become Christians.
