LAOS: Sisters Resist Family Persecution

26 September 2023

Source: The Voice of the Martyrs USA

Ton, 18, and Tan, 16, are sisters who became Christians and have been harassed repeatedly for this decision.

Recently, their mother said that she would sell her daughters to any man who makes an offer. Their older sister has also begun trying to bribe them into a life of prostitution with offers of phones and jewellery. The mother pressures the girls to prostitute themselves and regularly mocks their faith. She requires Ton and Tan to provide food for their family of six, sending them to work in the fields to keep them from being able to worship or serve in their church.

Ton and Tan remain strong in their faith and their love for the Lord, but they are under immense pressure and are saddened that their mother sees them only as a source of income.

    Pray for them

    Praise God for the remarkable faithfulness of these young women who are facing enormous pressure in their young Christian walk. Pray that they will know the Lord’s ministering presence and protection, and that they will receive encouragement from other believers.

    Pray for Ton and Tan’s family members, that each will have their own encounter with Christ.

    Pray for the wisdom of front-line workers who boldly witness for Christ and encourage persecuted believers in Laos.
