“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty.”
The Delta COVID-19 variant, the lack of medical workers, and the danger of seeking non-military supported medical care all combine for a deadly situation in Myanmar. In this growing crisis of despair, believers are stepping out to be the hands and feet of Christ – and some have laid down their lives to do this. This third wave of COVID has taken the lives of many highly respected Christian ministers, who contracted the virus while visiting COVID patients and conducting funerals for COVID victims. Pastor Min Lwin had been posting on Facebook for several weeks requesting prayer for the rising crisis; this week, he contracted the coronavirus himself and passed away.
Ministries are doing all they can to meet needs and bring hope in this dark hour. One ministry has been faithfully distributing food, medicine, and masks to impoverished families in slum communities. Families are now contacting this ministry to come to their homes and pray over dying relatives, who are hearing the hope of Christ and eternal life as they hover near death’s door. As most of the population is avoiding military-controlled hospitals, this ministry has just received approval to open a non-military affiliated clinic with lifesaving oxygen concentrators, run by volunteers from various churches and denominations. Please consider giving below to support the work of this ministry in this crisis.
“We are all sheltered in the shade of God’s love. God’s grace always suffices. Because God is the Emanuel, who is with us.”
– Pastor Min Lwin
- Grieve and rejoice with us over our many brothers and sisters who have laid down their lives to serve others through this COVID crisis. Pray for the comfort and shade of God’s love over those who remain.
- Pray that believers would continue to be Christ’s hands and feet with boldness, wisdom and love, and for the Lord to use this clinic and others like it to bring healing and life to Myanmar.
