Christians in Myanmar make up 4% of the population, however they face adversity, oppression and isolation. Often from minority ethnic groups, Christians are generally kept out of positions of power and influence in the country. Alongside the persecution of Rohingya Muslims, persecution of Christians is high - over 3,000 Christian villages have been burned in the last 10 years. Word of Hope is tackling perceptions and barriers to bring more people to Jesus.
