Christian Convert from Buddhism Kicked Out by His Brother

[214] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Anaram and Family.

A Christian man and his family are living under a tarp in a field after being kicked out of the family home by the man’s brother. Anaram Bokar was a Buddhist before coming to know Christ in 2004. He planted a church in 2007 and led a congregation of 47 believers who met in a family home he shared with his brother. As word spread that Anaram was sharing the gospel, he began to face opposition from villagers. And his own brother became his strongest opponent, playing the TV loudly during Sunday services and harassing the Christians in other ways. Finally, this year Anaram’s brother ordered him and his family out of their home before demolishing the section of the house where they lived. Village leaders have refused to intervene because Anaram is a Christian. Anaram, his wife and their children are currently taking shelter under a tarp on their farmland. Pray that Anaram will be able to respond to his brother with love and forgiveness, and pray that their relationship will be restored.
