Pray for the Rohingya in Bangladesh.

UN General Assembly have just condemned the actions of the Myanmar authorities which have promoted hatred against these people despite generations of residence in Myanmar. Bangladesh is overcrowded already, and other countries have offered little help. The refugees remain in huge camps.

Myanmar is Buddhist; the Rohingya are a Muslim minority (Christian tribes like the Karen and Kachin also suffer in Myanmar). A number of Christian groups are working among these desperate people.

Some have become Christians, either before leaving Myanmar in in the camps. But they are denied aid, education and other benefits, and some have been chased out of the camps.

Praise God for calling some of the Rohingya to faith in Christ. Pray for them to be faithful and to know His joy.
