Pray for 11 Families Expelled from Their Village Because of Christian Faith

[309] prayers in [21] nations have been posted for 11 Families.

Eleven families in Chiapas, Mexico, were expelled from their village earlier this month because of their Christian faith. Over the past year, the Christians have faced increasing harassment from those opposed to their evangelism. Zapatista rebels arrested three Christian leaders and accused them of creating division in the community. The men were released after paying 1,500 pesos each, but they were warned that they could be imprisoned if they continued to preach the gospel or meet for worship services. The Zapatistas then forced the 11 Christian families to leave the village and their homes behind.

These brothers and sisters have refused to deny Him and thus have lost earthly homes and belongings. Bless them abundantly with all they need in their new place.
