A young couple who placed their faith in Christ less than six months ago have already paid a heavy price.
Shortly after Phiarune and his wife, Lai became Christians, they moved in with Lai’s parents. Lai’s parents, however disapproved of their new Christian practices, including their prayers before meals. When local police surveyed village residents, documenting the number of Christians, Lai’s father told them he didn’t want his daughter and son-in-law included in his family registration booklet, which serves as a passport combined with a social security card for the family unit.
Phiarune, Lai and their young son had to move out of the house.

- Pray that the Lord will use this time of trial to grow Phiarune and Lai in faith and spiritual maturity.
- Join with Phiarune and Lai in praying the Lord will reveal Himself to other members of the family and community.
- Pray that the couple will be provided with their own family registration booklet and be officially recognised by the government so they can obtain work, education and social services.
