Family Fined for Hosting Worship Gatherings

[288] prayers in [20] nations have been posted for See and His Family.

On Jan. 4, authorities in See’s village learned of the Christian worship gatherings that had been taking place in his family’s home. The village leader and other authorities visited him, seizing official documents that stated he and his family of five were part of the village and changing the date to three years earlier. They also fined See the equivalent of $500 because the worship gatherings went against the village’s rules and spirits. “If you do not pay, then stop your faith!” they told him. See did not follow their orders. He continues to gather with others in his home to worship God. Pray that village leaders will return See’s family’s official papers stating they are part of the village. Pray also that See’s bold faith will lead others to Christ and that their church will grow.

  • Thank you Jesus for See's faithfulness. Bring great sense of guilt upon those altering their documents and demanding a halt to their worship. Bring them the See's fellowship, break their hearts, render them hopeless until they have clearly heard the gospel. Allow them no rest, no sense of security until the oppressor sees you and heeds your call to you
