Kay, a 19-year-old Khmu girl from a village in Laos, moved to the capital city of Vientiane to get a job. In Vientiane, Kay attended a Khmu house church.

This year, Kay had a very happy first day of the year, because she had trusted in Christ as her Savior on December 31st! But when Kay called her parents in their village and told them the good news, they were not happy. “Quit your job and come home!” they told her. “If you do not stop being a Christian immediately, you are not our daughter anymore.” She told them she had found new life in Jesus, and that she could not deny Him.
Kay’s parents first sent her brother to Vientiane to find out why she was being stubborn. He left disappointed when she would not stop believing in Jesus. Next they sent her 17-year-old sister. Her sister was amazed at the changes in Kay. Now Kay had a good attitude, good character, and she was more mature. She loved her parents, but she loves Jesus, too. Kay invited her sister to the Khmu house church, and her sister also became a Christian!
Please ask God to help the sisters remain strong in their faith. Pray that their parents and brother will come to know Jesus, too.
