Persecution of Christians in Laos is continuing.
- A pastor was arrested for leading people to Jesus.
- After a teenage girl became a Christian, her parents threatened to sell her as a slave. The girl ran away from home.
- Christians from another country were stopped by the police after they shared the gospel with people in Laos.
- Christian families are sometimes kicked out of their homes and villages and not allowed to come back.
Recently Christians who already face persecution suffered still another burden. Six children from Christian families found something in the jungle and began playing with it. The device was a bomb from a war many years ago.
The bomb exploded and hurt all the children. Five were taken to a hospital, but sadly, one of the children died. God cares about the children, and he knows that their families are sad. Pray for health and strength for all the Christians in Laos.
First Peter 5:7–11 says, [Cast] all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you. To Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
