Please Pray for Myanmar!

"Speak up and judge fairly;
    defend the rights of the poor and needy" Proverbs 31:9

The military is now back in control and has declared a year-long state of emergency. It seized control on 1 February following a general election which Daw Aung Suu Kyi's National League for Democracy (NLD) party won by a landslide.

The armed forces had backed the opposition, who were demanding a rerun of the vote, claiming widespread fraud. The election commission said there was no evidence to support these claims.The coup was staged as a new session of parliament was set to open.

Ms Suu Kyi is under house arrest and has been charged with possessing illegally imported walkie-talkies. Many other NLD officials have also been detained.

Many of our friends and colleagues have been actively involved in the peaceful demonstrations which are currently taking place. We are truly inspired and heartened by their courage and determination.
