Please Pray for Pastor Hkalam Samson in Myanmar facing prosecution / imprisonment after revealing religious persecution in meeting with President Donald Trump [#HkalamSamson #ReligiousPersecution #MyanmarPersecution]

[September 5, 2019]

The Baptist minister, Pastor Hkalam Samson, president of the Kachin Baptist Convention and a leading rights advocate for a predominantly Baptist ethnic group in northern Myanmar known as the Kachin told President Donald Trump that ethnic groups in his homeland were being “oppressed and tortured by the Myanmar military government” and thanked him for imposing sanctions on 4 top generals.

Now, as if to prove Pastor Hkalam Samson right, a colonel in the Myanmar Army has gone to court seeking to have the minister prosecuted for his comments about the military during that conversation with President Donald Trump.

Pastor Hkalam Samson who returned home to the northern Myanmar city of Myitkyina after his White House visit, said he was waiting to see whether a court would accept the complaint of the colonel.

A judge is expected to rule whether the case can proceed.

Newly discovered North Korea propaganda footage sheds light on how the Communist regime trains state security agents on how to identify and silence Christians in the Hermit Kingdom.

The previously unseen film shows the story of Cha Deoksun, whose life otherwise might not have been known to the world, and her belief in a deity other than Kim Jong Un.

“This video illustrates very clearly why it is so important for Christians everywhere to pray for North Korea and for Christians there.”
– Todd Nettleton, host of VOM Radio and an author of the history of Christianity in North Korea

According to the video, Cha is described as a “spy,” a description of evangelists commonly used in North Korean propaganda.
