A man who was imprisoned for converting to Christianity has now been evicted from his village in Laos for refusing to renounce his faith.
Earlier this year, Bounyang and his family came to faith in Christ after experiencing a healing in their family following prayer by local Christians. When authorities questioned Bounyang about his Christian faith, he told them, “I insist on following Jesus and will not go back to worshipping the old traditional way.”
Bounyang was arrested on 12 September and detained for several weeks. Authorities then released Bounyang on the condition that he leave the village after harvest season.
Bounyang’s brother has given him land in another village, but he will have to build a new home.

- Thank the Lord for the powerful witness to the Gospel when He answers prayer by healing.
- Thank the Lord that though Bounyang and his family are young in their Christian walk, they have trusted faithfully in Christ and His promises, through great difficulty.
- Thank the Lord for the provision of new land. Pray they will be used by the Lord to be His witnesses to their new community. Pray for those who live in Bounyang’s former village.
