Several families have been kicked out of a village in eastern Oaxaca state because of their Christian faith.
The traditional religion of the village honours pagan idols through drunken festivals, and the Christian families refused to participate in the festivals. As a result, some of the Christians were arrested by the village authorities, and the families were driven from their community. The families are currently staying in their pastor’s house.

Let us pray.
- Pray for these families to remain firm in their faith as they endure hostility from their community members.
- Pray they can find refuge in a community where they can practise their faith without fear of further opposition.
- Pray that the rest of their community comes to faith in Christ.
