General population 127,000

Myanmar (formerly Burma), est. pop.54 mill., is a Southeast Asian nation of more than 100 ethnic groups, bordering India, Bangladesh, China, Laos and Thailand. It is the largest country in mainland Southeast Asia. Yangon (formerly Rangoon), the country’s largest city, is home to bustling markets, numerous parks and lakes, and the towering, gilded Shwedagon Pagoda, which contains Buddhist relics and dates to the 6th century. Although Buddhism (83%) is the official religion, the military claims that there is freedom of worship. Christianity has 8%, but none reported within the estimated 127,000 Hui people recorded. Hui people, originally from Yunnan China, are linked to the Islamic faith based on tradition and culture.

How could we pray?

Pray for the Christian churches to reach out to the Hui people group. With the present political climate, people in Myanmar (Hui included) are living in fear and concern. Pray for safety and that Hui people will come seeking for Jesus.

總人口 127,000

緬甸人口五千四百萬,是個擁有一百多個民族的東南亞國家,與印度、孟加拉國、中國、老撾和泰國接壤。它是東南亞大陸上最大的國家。仰光是緬甸最大的城市,擁有繁華的市場、許多公園和湖泊,以及高聳的瑞光大金塔,金塔裡藏有佛教文物,其歷史可以追溯到第六世紀。雖然官方宗教是佛教,佔總人口的83%,但軍方聲稱緬甸有信仰自由。基督教佔緬甸人口的8%,但在公開的報告中,十二萬多的緬甸回民當中沒有基督徒。緬甸的回民大多來自中國雲南,他們在傳統和文化上與伊斯蘭信仰認同。

如何禱告

基督教會向回民伸出援手。在當前的政治氣候下,緬甸民眾包括回民都生活在恐懼和擔憂之中。祈求他們有平安,祈求回民來尋求耶穌。
