Report- All Churches in Region Facing Persecution

[259] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Church members after church closings.

Front-line workers ministering to tribal groups in south-central Vietnam report that every single church in their region is facing difficulties. The believers said Christians are being watched and that many churches have been shut down. At one church, police arrived during Sunday worship and took away Bibles, chairs, tables and five motorbikes. They then expelled believers from the church and sealed the doors. At another church, officials removed the walls and roof of the church building and forbade believers from meeting for worship. At a third church, which has over 100 members, police took away 52 chairs, a musical instrument and two amplifiers. They also beat the pastor and removed a cross from the wall, along with a banner proclaiming “Glorify God.” Pray for the Christians in this region.

  • Every day we cry out to God for the lives of the prisoners and their families. We ask Him to comfort them, provide clean water, food, warmth and medicine, but above all, release! He is with His people in their pain. This is a mystery and unsearchable, but somehow He remains Faithful. May He grant the prisoners perseverance and sustain them.
