The Voice of the Martyrs recently received a report about eight Christian families who live at a village in Laos. They raise chickens, pigs, fish, ducks, and water buffalo in the village. Their farms are a 3- to 4-hour walk from the village. So they stay at their farms, except on Thursdays and Sundays when they return home to worship God together at the village.
Most of the other people in the village are not Christians and they hate the Christians. When the Christian families are away working on their farm, villagers steal, kill, and eat their animals!
Some of the Christians would like to leave the village and live somewhere else, but they have nowhere to go. Even with all their struggles, they are strong in their faith and rejoice in the Lord. Please pray for them, and for their persecutors to notice their joy in the Lord and to seek Jesus.
