The Rev. Dr. Jong Chun Park, president of the World Methodist Council, recently wrote to Methodist leaders in Myanmar. He concluded his letter with, “we hold the Methodist churches of Myanmar in prayer as you do prophetic witnesses and provide comfort to your people in this anxious and uncertain time. And we want to assure you that we stand in solidarity with the patriotic and courageous people of Myanmar struggling and suffering for the cause of justice, truth, freedom, and peace. May God create a new thing in Myanmar!”
Methodists globally are praying for the end of violence and political oppression, reconciliation, the restoration of democracy, and church leaders and missionaries ministering in Myanmar.
