Man Evicted from Village for Faith in Christ

[190] prayers in [16] nations have been posted for Keo.

After Keo’s wife suffered from numerous health problems for several years, a witchdoctor told the couple to live separately until his wife found healing. From 2015 to 2019, Keo lived in a small hut he built for himself. In November 2019, he learned about Jesus. He attended a worship gathering and was moved to give his life to Christ and be baptized. In early 2020, his wife, relatives and village authorities learned of Keo’s Christian faith. His wife threatened to leave him if he didn’t leave Jesus, his relatives said they would cut him off from the family and village leaders formed a plan to evict him. Keo refused to abandon Christ, so villagers destroyed his hut. Currently, 61-year-old Keo is living with a local pastor, but he is in poor health and has no job. Pray for Keo to remain strong in his faith, experience healing and find work. Pray for him to find his own place to live and be reunited with his wife. Pray that she will hear the gospel and accept Christ as her Lord and Savior.
