Chakma Update – Prayer Request

Chakma Update

 As we understand the latest situation, the Chakma pastor, Sushil, is still being held prisoner in the Buddhist temple.  Occasionally he is allowed to go outside and talk with people, but only if he wears the Buddhist clothing.  He has been beaten severely.  Meanwhile, Chakma Christians have left the area.  Three single people have gone to Dhaka.  Twelve people are staying at Sushil Tripura’s (same first name as detained pastor) home in Khagrachuri.  Their presence brings to 18 the number of people staying under his roof.  These 4 families have taken their children out of school and are planning to relocate in Khagrachuri.  They are looking for jobs or trying to start a business to support themselves.  Meanwhile, they need food and shelter.  Phil T. (with our company) and Sushil T are searching for a relief agency to help provide food.  Pray for their efforts to result in funds for food.  Please pray for these persecuted believers that their faith will be strengthened and that instead of stamping out Christianity, this opposition will cause it to spread like wildfire!   Pray for their physical needs to be met.  Pray for Sushil T and other Christians in that area as they lend support.
