No Rice for Christians

[292] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Starving familise.

Seven families from two tribal groups are nearing starvation after village authorities confiscated their farmland because of their faith in Christ. About 50 people from the Khmu and Hmong tribes form the seven families. “Their faith is strong and everyone is actively serving one another and the Lord,” wrote a VOM partner. The families are experiencing severe persecution, however. Authorities have taken their land and do not allow them to farm. When the village experienced a drought earlier this year, the government distributed rice to everyone except Christians. Authorities told them that if they want help, they must renounce their faith. “Presently, the Christian families are in a dire situation with no food to eat. They have tried to dig up yam and to hunt jungle animals to sell in order to get rice to eat,” the VOM partner wrote. Pray that the families receive food as well as a place for them to hold weekly worship.

  • Mighty God, in the name of Jesus, I ask that You help Your people in Laos just as You sent Manna to the Israelites in the wilderness. All who commit violence and oppression will be punished. May they repent and turn to JESUS who gives only what is good to the people He has saved. Please do what only You can do. Blessed be your name!
