Village leaders tortured a Hmong Christian recently in an attempt to force him and his wife to renounce their new Christian faith.
After the couple refused to abandon their faith in Christ, the villagers hung the man upside down over a fire of spicy chillies. The acrid smoke burned his skin, throat and eyes, until he eventually agreed to renounce his faith.
The couple has since fled to another village where they are able to openly follow Christ.

- Pray the Lord may help this couple overcome the trial they have suffered. May they experience great love and support from their Christian family.
- Thank the Lord the couple now have an opportunity to openly live out their faith. Pray He will use them as a strong witness for the Gospel.
- Ask God to continue overseeing the growth of His church in Vietnam, calling even those who oppose the Gospel.
