Myanmar soldiers have killed 1,000 civilians
As of yesterday, Assistance Association for Political Prisoners reports the military junta in Myanmar has killed over 1,000 civilians. The deaths occurred since February when the military took over the country. The death count is probably much higher.
Over 5,000 people are also under detention in the Southeast Asian nation. Each day the tragic accounts of violence and death in the streets pour in.
As the Myanmar military, known as the Tatmadaw, increases its control, it is also cracking down on ethnic and religious minorities. Christians are likely to be the target of more persecution from the Tatmadaw.
Please pray for our brothers and sisters in Christ Myanmar, which Open Doors has determined is the 18th worst nation in the world for the persecution of Christians.
Psalm 71:4-5 says, “Deliver me, O my God, out of the hand of the wicked, out of the hand of the unrighteous and cruel man. For You are my hope, O Lord GOD; You are my trust from my youth.”

French homeschoolers need permission
Homeschoolers in France face new restrictions.
Last Friday, the French Constitutional Court approved a law that requires parents to get permission from local officials to homeschool. Previously, parents could just have a declaration of opting for homeschooling.
Now officials can close private and home schools without challenges from judges. There are an estimated 30,000 to 50,000 homeschooled children in France.
