Governor Declares Christians "Good People"

[244] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for The "Good People".

An area long known as one of the most difficult places for Lao Christians to live seems to be softening. Recently, the area’s governor told police to release four arrested Christians because Christians are “good people with good habits.” People walk for days to see a Christian leader in the area known as the “Jesus man,” hoping for healing or the ability to beat an addiction. “God’s kingdom is expanding,” a VOM field worker said. “I think this has a lot to do with leading with community development projects and evangelism during those projects that we and others have supported for nearly a decade.” Strong persecution continues, however. Multiple families in the region have been evicted from their villages this year, requiring support from VOM. Praise God for His work in this place, and continue to pray that the Lao believers will remain faithful witnesses for Him.
