Villagers Confiscate Christian Woman's Land

[318] prayers in [14] 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.

  • Maker of the Universe and everything in it, prosper Chau. Restore to her 7 fold of what she lost. Use this tragedy to bring glory to Your name. Make Chau to realize that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against the powers of the darkness of this world. If we suffer for Jesus we will surely reign with Him. Keep Chau strong and faithful to You.
