Local authorities confiscated 16 Bibles and some hymnals from a group of Hmong believers during a house church meeting two weeks ago, a VOM worker reports. The house church of 30 families was formed two months ago after an evangelist came and shared the Gospel in their mountain village.
No Christians lived in the village prior to the evangelist’s visit, and police are especially opposed to Christianity spreading in new areas. Police are watching the house and have threatened to arrest the group’s leader and tear down the house if they meet again. They also took the believers’ mobile phones and told them not to contact anyone outside the house. VOM is making plans to replace the Bibles that were taken by police.
