Eleven families of believers from the Palaung tribe in Shan State have experienced pressure from villagers to leave their new Christian faith.
Villagers grew angry because the believers had gathered to worship and pray. After pushing the families to leave their faith or leave the village, three of the families grew fearful and have since left the church.
Missionaries who work in the area convinced village leaders to allow the families to remain in the village; however, villagers retaliated by stoning the homes of the Christians.

Let us pray.
- Pray that the Christians remain firm in their faith and love their neighbours despite the intimidation and attacks.
- Pray that the three families who left the faith will return to Jesus.
- Pray the persecutors will experience the love of Christ, through seeing the Gospel displayed in the lives of the Christian families.
