Family Barred from Two Villages for Christian Faith

[300] prayers in [18] nations have been posted for Gate and his family.

Shortly after Gate and his wife became Christians, his parents and the leader of their village forced the couple and their young child out of their village because of their faith. With no place to stay, Gate started to build a home for his family on farmland he owned in another village about a mile away. Learning of the family’s faith, the leader of that village threatened to arrest Gate if he did not stop the construction. Although they have no home and only rice to eat, Gate and his wife remain strong in their faith. Pray that the Lord will grant permission for Gate to build a temporary home on his own land. Pray that Gate and his family will not be discouraged. Pray that the Lord will provide all of the family’s necessities in addition to shelter.
