Myanmar, also known as Burma, and one of the least-evangelized nations, has historically been Buddhist. Ninety-one percent of the people are still unreached with the good news of Jesus Christ. Most Burmese children actually receive their education inside Buddhist monasteries, where they learn about the occult, superstition, and fear of spirits.
In February 2021, adding to the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic and unemployment, a military regime seized the country in a coup and reversed the fragile democracy that began in 2016. Violence and chaos ensued, and since then, no part of the country has remained untouched.
The entire country of Myanmar has become acutely aware of the fragility of life. Through this crisis and these needs, the Lord is opening up many more hearts to the gospel. Those who were distant and distrustful before are now coming regularly to Bible studies, services, and cell groups. Despite this suffering and oppression, ministry workers are seeing God move powerfully with more salvations and baptisms than ever! Although a great spiritual and physical battle is taking place, the Christians in Myanmar continue to be very bold, preaching the gospel daily, baptizing and making disciples as ministry opportunities accelerate.
JESUS film workers are using tablets preloaded with the JESUS film in seven languages to share the hope of Christ on protest-filled streets. They are also being used daily in several safe havens, for children and internally displaced people, where they can receive spiritual, physical, and emotional aid.
