LAOS: Worship Continues Despite Persecution and Tight Conditions

LAOS: Worship Continues Despite Persecution and Tight Conditions

Mr Han came to Christ after many years of being ill. Neither the doctor nor the village witch doctor could help him, even though he spent most of his money and killed much of his livestock.

He heard that Jesus could perform miracles, so he took his whole family to the Christian village to accept Christ. Then the persecution began.

The first year, his village threatened to force his family from the village and treated him with extreme contempt. When that didn’t work, they seized his farmland and his rubber trees. But Han still didn’t give up his faith.

Village officials then decided to charge Han an extra tax. Han was not discouraged; he challenged the authorities and continued to pray for the sick and share the Gospel with others. There are now 11 Christian families in the village worshipping at Han’s house, which is run-down due to the difficulties he has faced.

  • Praise God for the way he has healed and led Han. Praise Him too for Han’s strong and courageous Gospel witness in the community.
  • Pray for those who oppose Han and his message of hope and salvation.
  • Ask God to bless and encourage the Christians who worship together in Han’s home. Ask the Lord for His provision.

LAOS: Transformation for Young Man

LAOS: Transformation for Young Man

Khamla was devastated when his wife left him. One day, as he walked past the Buddhist temple in extreme sorrow, something that looked like a small bird hit him in the chest. He unexpectedly changed; he became violently strong and was suddenly unable to communicate.

His parents and the community were so fearful that they locked him in a cage. His parents made many animal sacrifices to the spirits and invited multiple witch doctors to help him, but nothing worked.

Finally, they turned to the Christians, who sent believers to pray every day. After a month of prayers, Khamla calmly told his father he was ready to leave the cage. Khamla, his parents and siblings all gave their lives to Christ after witnessing his transformation, and many others in the village began to show an interest in Christianity. This worried village authorities, and they declared that Khamla and his family could remain Christians, but no one else in the village could. They also said that Khamla and his family could not lead others to Christ. “Pray they will know what to do and that the Lord breaks down these barriers, as many saw the healing miracle of the Lord,” a VOM partner wrote.

  • Praise God for this remarkable testimony.
  • Pray Khamla and his family will have much contact with other believers and be given an opportunity to grow in knowledge and understanding of the Gospel. Pray too they will be given the strength to stand against opposition.
  • Pray that other members of the community, including the authorities will also come to marvel at the wonder and power of Christ.
