Bomb, Fire Used Against Christians in Bru Village

[212] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Christian families in danger by villagers.

A Bru community in rural Laos was so determined to drive out a group of Christian families that they resorted to drastic measures. “They were so resistant to their faith, they were trying to scare them out of the village or to renounce their faith,” a VOM field worker said. Persecution began in 2018 when the villagers killed the livestock and crops of the three families. They even planted a bomb in their cooking fire, hoping to scare or injure them. The Christian families are also banned from using the village well. Even so, the believers are determined to stay in their village as a testimony to God’s power, so they requested that VOM drill a well for them. Pray that the firm bravery of these families will cause many in their village to turn to God.

  • Thank you for the steadfastness of these families, that you are sustaining them God. I pray for all their children, that they would find hope, safely and love in You - that you would be their refuge and hiding place, not who they think is the cause of their suffering. May their love for you be strong and I pray you'd sustain them all by your joy.
