Pray for Five Christian Leaders Jailed for Praying for Sick Woman

[481] prayers in [25] nations have been posted for Christians in Laos.

UPDATE: The five Christian leaders who were in prison for nearly 10 months were released from prison on Friday, March 20, 2015. However, the case against them remains open.

Five Christian leaders in Laos were sentenced to jail and fined on Feb. 2 after a Christian woman they had prayed for died of an illness. Mrs. Kaithong, Mr. Puphet, Mr. Muk, Mr. Hasadee and Mr. Tiang were charged with "treating [a person] without an official [medical] license causing her to die." The Christian leaders were each sentenced to nine months in prison and fined for allegedly claiming to be healers. The problems developed when authorities realized the woman's family wanted a Christian burial service. Authorities came to the family’s home to arrest the leaders and tried to force the family to recant their faith.
