Under a new law, all religious activity in Laos must be approved by multiple government offices. Approval is rarely, if ever, given.

This means the work of VOM-supported front-line workers and other evangelists would be considered illegal.

The law is supposed to apply to people of all faiths equally, but many expect it to be enforced only against those outside Buddhism or the country’s other traditional beliefs.

The law is concerning because it could stop much of the work of front-line workers, which takes place outside their immediate home area: visiting believers, conducting a funeral or praying for the sick.

  • Pray for pastors and evangelists, that they will maintain their bold faith and pursue their commitment to building God’s kingdom.
  • Pray that the Gospel will continue to flourish in Laos despite attempts to contain it.
  • Commit to the Lord those who currently oppose the Gospel and religious freedom.
