Mennonite World Conference issued a call to prayer to its member churches around the world the day after a military bombardment killed members of Bible Missionary Church, an MWC member church.
MWC reported an aerial bombardment of a village in Chin State killed a dozen villagers March 30, including several members of the congregation and the local pastor’s daughters. Many villagers were severely injured, including the pastor.
Canadian Mennonite reported last summer roughly half of Bible Missionary Church’s families were displaced. About 2,000 people had fled to jungles or mountainous areas for safety after the military seized power and civil unrest grew.
“Please pray for solace for all those affected,” said MWC President Henk Stenvers. “Pray for an end to violence.”
