Buddhism is the dominant religion in Myanmar. Many Buddhist groups pressure minorities such as Muslims and Christians to leave the country to keep Myanmar ‘pure’. Thousands of Christians have also been displaced due to civil war. Most Christians are extremely poor, especially in rural areas, and get stuck in the cycle of poverty due to ethnic and religious discrimination.

Pray that Christians in poverty will find contentment and provision in Jesus.
