A teenage girl from Laos went home while on holiday from her high school to share her new Christian faith with her family, but was immediately rejected and disowned for becoming a believer.
‘Dee,’ 16, had once heard many negative things about the Christian faith, but after becoming a believer, she thought it would be okay to tell her parents about what she had learned. Her parents were not happy and tried to force Dee to renounce her faith. When she refused, insisting that she will follow Jesus no matter what happens to her, her parents kicked her out of the home and told her that she is no longer their daughter.
Church leaders are helping Dee, who is staying in a safe house, and they ask for prayers for her and say that although she is sad about her parents, she still has a lot of joy and peace. Dee also asks for prayers for her parents and wants them to know Christ.
