Pastor Tun Nu was reportedly killed along with several others who had been abducted in mid-January by a rebel army in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, an area affected by the Rohingya conflict. Gospel for Asia vice president Danny Yohannan says their hearts are broken over the news. He also states that this man of God will not be forgotten.

"We pray that Pastor Tun's life and his death will be a great testimony to those who knew him and those who will learn about him and his life and legacy," Yohannan shares with OneNewsNow.

The 41-year-old pastor was a native of the area and a pastor for two decades. He also leaves behind a wife and three young children.

"Our prayer is the Lord will continue to sustain them and give them much grace – especially the children, that they would grow up following in their father's footsteps; that they would never see that somehow the Lord or the ministry had taken their father away but rather that their father had had the privilege to lay down his life for the sake of Christ."

Churches across Myanmar have taken up an offering for Tun's wife and children, and regional church leaders have been visiting and comforting the grieving family.
