Myanmar army murdered pastor
Myanmar Now reports that 26-year-old Salai Kyar, who was ministering at Thet Key Tuang Christian Congregation, was tortured to death while being interrogated by the army.
Stories of villagers being burned alive have been carried on major media outlets like the L.A. Times, Reuters, and NBC. And the Chin Human Rights Organization counts at least 22 churches have now been burned or destroyed.
The Myanmar Army is made up chiefly of the Burman ethnic group, the worldview of which is primarily Buddhist. In addition to the Muslim Rohingyas in the Rakhine State, the army continues to persecute the Christian people among the Chin, the Kachin, and the Karen tribes.
Their actions represent some of the worst human rights abuses in the world.

Then Jesus arose and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water. And they ceased, and there was a calm. . . and His disciples marveled, saying to one another, “Who can this be? For He commands even the winds and water, and they obey Him!” (Luke 8:24-25)
