MYANMAR (BURMA) – Mob destroys pastor’s house and church

Burmese Script

On 22 July, a Buddhist mob attacked three Christian homes and a church in a village in Myanmar, allegedly following the conversion of some members of the Buddhist community to Christianity. The church pastor’s house and the church were completely destroyed, along with several motorbikes owned by Christians. The pastor and his family are now living on the side of the road. The pastor said, “I and my family decided to serve the Lord in this village, we cannot run from this village, if we die, then we will die.”

Myanmar is 87% Buddhist and in 2015 the government passed a law requiring anyone wishing to change their religion to obtain official approval.
