A Zoom call the end of August saw the computer screen filled with small squares of smiling faces as Andrew Bawi Ceu, members of his family, and close to 20 church planters and teachers in Myanmar met with members of the World Mission Board. We were able to hear a devotional and pray together. We were able to get updates in person on what ministry during the coronavirus shutdown has looked like for them. In fact, Andrew shared that they are finding people more open to hearing about Christianity during the pandemic. Andrew meets monthly with church planters by Zoom for a prayer meeting. Andrew’s wife, Marilyn, meets weekly online with church planter’s wives for prayer.
Pray for those enduring continued unrest in Haiti. Gang members in Port-au-Prince have moved to the area of Delmas 6 and taken over, forcing our mother church not to meet. The police were called in to help, but they can do little because the gang members own more powerful firearms. Gang members have also been in the area of our Cite Boston church. Please pray for protection for our brothers and sisters.
