Terror for the Kachin People, No Place to Run!

One of the prayer burdens of our local Burmese people is for the Burmese Kachin state in the Himalayan region.   The Burmese military is driving citizens from their home and some are fleeing to the Chinese border.  People are leaving because of religious persecution, rape, enslavement and other duress.   But this is a problem for some 30,000 refugees,  China is a friend of the oppressive government and they are telling these folks to go back home.  They won’t provide refuge.

But Australians, Europeans, Japanese and Americans have said, yes we will provide refugee, come to our cities and towns, like High Point and we will help you to get a new start.

My Kachin neighbors ask for your prayers for their people.   There has been a recent uptick in violence in this once totally Christian provice of Burma.  Here are some links for you to review:
