Christians Families Kicked Out of Community

[235] prayers in [17] nations have been posted for Exiled Families.

Several families have been kicked out of a village in eastern Oaxaca state because of their Christian faith. The traditional religion of the village honors pagan idols through drunken festivals, and the Christian families refused to participate in the festivals. As a result, some of the Christians were arrested by the village authorities, and the families were driven from their community. The families are currently staying in their pastor’s house. Pray for these families to remain firm in their faith as they endure hostility from their community members. Pray they can find refuge in a community where they can practice their faith without fear of further opposition, and pray that the rest of their community comes to faith in Christ.

  • Lord we lift up these christian families before You. We ask that You would guide their footsteps, as they have lost their homes, and need to establish themselves elsewhere. We ask that now that the Light has been removed from that village, that the villagers will see the difference and desire to come to know You as Savior.
