02/24/2019 Myanmar (International Christian Concern) – Two Christian Kachin IDPs were badly injured when one stepped on a landmine in Kachin state, Myanmar on January 7.

When they left the internally displaced persons (IDP) camp to search for food in a forest, they triggered the landmine planted by the army and suffered severe lower-body injuries.

According to Barnabas Fund, one man was badly injured but did not lose any limbs. However, his friend’s injuries were so extensive that doctors had to amputate both of his legs. The man has two daughters, aged two-and-a-half years and seven months, and is reported to be in deep distress. They are in need of prayers.

From 2011 to 2018, landmines laid by the Burmese military (Tatmadaw) have injured 1,339 people including 19 children in the war-torn Kachin State, according to the Kachin Independence Army(KIA) spokesperson Colonel Naw Bu.

The fighting between the Tatmadaw and KIA has destroyed more than 400 villages and driven some 130,000 people from their homes to 13 refugee camps spread across several townships. The predominantly Christian Kachin IDPs continue to live under the threat of landmines despite a ceasefire unilaterally announced by the Tatmadaw last December.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
