Uncle Refuses to Care for Three Christian Children After Father's Death

[174] prayers in [15] nations have been posted for Neung, Nom, and Ram.

On February 13, a Christian named Nin died, leaving behind two daughters, Neung and Nom, and a son, Ram. Since 2009, the three teenagers also lost their mother, a sister and their grandmother, all of whom were believers. After Nin’s death, his older brother and sister-in-law blamed the deaths on the family’s belief in God. They offered to care for the teens only if they rejected Christ. The teens refused, saying they could never reject Jesus. Angered by their decision, the uncle said he wouldn’t care for them. Nom, 16, and Ram, 13, moved in with their pastor’s family. Neung has since graduated high school and lives on her own. Pray for the three teenagers to remain firm in their faith, and ask God to provide for their needs. Pray that the Holy Spirit convicts the hearts of their uncle and aunt and leads them to Christ.
