LAOS: Christian Wife and Young Son Cast Off

11 June 2024

Kaew placed her trust in Christ through the prayers of her parents, who became Christians after her marriage. Her husband and his parents, as well as their village, opposed her decision to follow Christ and tried repeatedly to make her recant.

On 30 December, Kaew’s husband and other villagers berated and beat her until she passed out. When she regained consciousness, she was given one more chance to recant, but she insisted on following Christ. In anger, her husband threw her out of the house.

Heartbroken, she took their seven-year-old son and returned to her parent’s home with very little besides the clothes they wore. Kaew’s husband has since divorced her.

Her parents, also suffering persecution for their faith, including destruction of crops and damage to their property, are struggling to support Kaew and her son. VOM has provided emergency assistance as they rebuild their lives.
