Pray for Village Leaders as They Learn About Christianity

[155] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Village Leaders.

After observing a miraculous healing earlier this year, seven families in a Laotian village accepted Christ. When the families began visiting a nearby village every Sunday to worship with the man who shared the gospel with them, authorities in their own village scolded and questioned them. They told the families that Christianity is a foreign religion that goes against their culture and traditions and that they were being “lured into a trap.” Area Christian leaders began meeting with the village authorities to discuss the teachings of Christ and practices of their faith, and the authorities are now allowing the families to worship. Pray that all village leaders in the area will hear and believe the gospel, and pray that more families will join the seven new Christian families in worship.
