Laos: Arrested for Celebrating Christmas
Last year, some Christians in Laos invited their entire village to a Christmas celebration. As part of the celebration, they showed a video about the life of Jesus.
Authorities in the area did not like the idea of more villagers learning about Jesus. They arrested six Christians and put them in jail. The Christians were not released until January 31st of this year.
Every year, Christians in some countries risk getting arrested if they celebrate the birth of Jesus. Pray for protection for the Christians, and pray that their celebrations will lead many unbelievers to Christ.
