Gospel for Asia (GFA) issued a call for ‘compassionate prayer’ after more than 160 people were killed by a mudslide at a jade mine in northern Myanmar on July 2. Triggered by heavy rains, the mudslide swept into the mining site ‘like a tsunami,’ according to one state official, burying workers and people scavenging for precious stones.
Graphic images showed rescue workers pulling bodies from the debris and laying them in rows under tarp.
“Our heartfelt prayers are with the families of all the workers who died in this terrible disaster as well as the injured,” said Gospel for Asia (GFA World) founder Dr. K.P. Yohannan. “The people of Myanmar are among the most kind-hearted and loving on the planet. Right now, we can lift them up to our Lord Jesus in compassionate prayer.”
The disaster — which occurred on July 2 in the Hpakant area of Kachin state — was captured on video, showing the mudslide pouring into the mining site.
