Concrete cross

Tia Cem, a Chin Christian in Burma (Myanmar), built a 16m high concrete cross on the top of a hill in Chin State, on land owned by another Chin Christian. On 30 January ha was ordered to dismantle it or face two years in prison. This would make it the fourteenth Christian cross to be destroyed in Chin State. Christians make up 80% of Chin ethnic group, but they are prevented from building churches and are subjected to forced labour and eviction from their lands. Praise God for the perseverance and courage of Chin believers and pray that their witness will draw many to the Lord.
