New Law Further Restricts Front-line Workers

[186] prayers in [11] nations have been posted for Laotian Front-line Workers.

Under a new law, all religious activity in Laos must be approved by multiple government offices. Approval is rarely, if ever, given. This means the work of VOM-supported front-line workers and other evangelists would be considered illegal. The law is supposed to apply to people of all faiths equally, but many expect it to be enforced only against those outside Buddhism or the country’s other traditional beliefs. The law is concerning because it would stop much of the work of front-line workers, which takes place outside their immediate home areas: visiting believers, conducting a funeral or praying for the sick. Pray that traveling evangelists will maintain their bold faith and renew their commitment to building God’s kingdom. And pray that the gospel will continue to flourish in Laos despite attempts to contain it.

  • Father God, please bless these workers and make straight paths for them to further Your gospel of our Lord Jesus. You are able to reroute, confuse, and "blind" the eyes of the enemy so Your people can do the work you have called them to do. I ask that many Buddhists see the error of their beliefs, repent, and turn to JESUS who is the only Way.
