Villagers Confiscate Christian Woman's Land

[271] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Chau.

A Christian woman in the village of Dak Lak lost her home and land recently when villagers decided to expel her because of her Christian faith. Chau, 60, lived on several acres of prime farming land that had been handed down to her by her grandparents. Before becoming a Christian, she was a heavy drinker and didn’t work, but after coming to know Christ she became a new person. Earlier this year, Chau traveled to another village to stay a few weeks with her daughter, who was expecting a baby. While away, her neighbors sent word that she was not welcome back in the village because she was a Christian. When Chau tried to return home, the villagers stopped her and told her they were confiscating her land. Pray for Chau, who is grieved over the loss of her land but committed to faithfully following Christ.

  • We prayed for Chau as a group this morning. Some of the words:

    1 Corinthians 12:26
    If one member suffers, all suffer together; if one member is honored, all rejoice together. "We suffer with you, and will rejoice in your sweet reunion"

    We felt your pain, we are praying for the Lords peaceful resolution.
