Myanmar Christians distribute Bibles despite chaos

By March 16, 2021

Myanmar (MNN) — After seizing power from the elected government, Myanmar’s military continues using violence against civilians. Amnesty International reports the military has been using increasingly lethal force during protests.

Despite the chaos, Jason Woolford says Mission Cry has been able to get a shipment of Bibles and Christian books into the country. “They’re already being distributed in that location. These Bibles and Christian books went to a college and a seminary. They have said they have the biggest library in the entire country because of the shipment that we sent to them.”

Local Christians will distribute these Bibles as they go out to give people food and water. Woolford encourages listeners to pray for these believers in Myanmar. They continue to minister during an incredibly stressful time. “We’ve not been able to send to Myanmar for a very, very long time. It’s been closed. We have a short window, I believe, that’s open, especially with what’s going on. They’re asking for another container filled with 40,000 Bibles and Christian books. I want to meet that need.”

How you can get involved

You can support mission Cry’s efforts here. Woolford says, “People can come alongside and help sponsor that container, which will cost $11,000. That $11,000 is going to make it possible for us to send nearly a half a million dollar’s worth of used Bibles and Christian books.”

Pray these Bibles will lead many people to the love of Jesus. And pray the love of Christians in Myanmar would serve as a beacon of hope for the whole country.
