Pray for Village Elder Ostracized by Family for Faith

[186] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Khampang.

Khampang came to Christ after witnessing God’s goodness and being healed. Only two others in his village were Christians, and both had experienced harsh reactions from their families. One young man was disowned by his family, and a teenager was kicked out of his family home. As a result, both young men were forced to leave the village. Community leaders were reluctant to punish Khampang, who is an elder, but they still worked against him, convincing Khampang’s wife that his decision was illegal. She refused to sleep in the same bed as him and gave him small portions of food or nothing at all. When Khampang recently met with VOM partners, large tears rolled down his cheeks as he shared how his family had rejected him. Pray that he will be reconciled with his family while staying faithful to Jesus Christ.

  • Heavenly Father, Remind Khampang that he has a Family. A Father who adores Him & a Brother who is always right by his side. Better to be surrounded by Christ, than a 100 People and be without Him. You well understand how the rejected feel, but You will comfort & uphold them through deep waters, rivers of difficulty & the fire of oppression (Is 43) Amen
