Brother “Keon” and his wife have suffered intense persecution since opening their home to other Christians last Christmas, a VOM worker reports. The family accepted Jesus Christ after their son was miraculously healed from an illness. But after converting to Christianity, Brother Keon was forbidden to associate with anyone in the village.
The village leaders were angry because Brother Keon received Christians into his home without asking their permission, which they would have denied. Brother Keon is now concerned about his family’s safety and his own safety, as other believers have been kidnapped or have disappeared. Brother Keon and his family are standing firm in the Lord despite the dangers and remain in their village, where they feel called to minister.
