Tuikhin Zang Village, Myanmar:  On August 28th, at around 3 am local time, mud from a mountain began flowing through the village of Tuikhin Zang, one of the villages in the Kalaymyo Township, eastern Myanmar.   Our Nazarene pastor in the area provided the following report.

Please keep the people of Myanmar, specifically the region surrounding Kalaymyo in your prayers.  The church has significant work in this area of Myanmar.
